UFC finalizes The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale fight card

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

With the taped portion of The Ultimate Fighter 17 complete, the UFC officially announced the fight lineup for the show's live finale on April 13th.

Unlike the last season of TUF where 75% of the cast didn't even get an official UFC fight, just about everyone from TUF 17 will get at least one crack at the big time. Following the conclusion of the TUF 17 semifinals, the UFC revealed the remaining fights for the live finale on April 13th at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The main card on FX sees Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen in the main event. Uriah Hall and Kelvin Gastelum earn co-main honors as the winner becomes the TUF 17 champion. The most important fight on the card is Miesha Tate against Cat Zingano, with the winner earning a title shot against Ronda Rousey and a coaching spot on TUF 18 opposite Rousey. Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne square off before Tate/Zingano, while the FX broadcast is rather surprisingly opened up by Bubba McDaniel and Gilbert Smith.

It should be noted that Zak Cummings is not fighting this weekend, which probably explains why Clint Hester is fighting Bristol Marunde.

Here's the full card from top to bottom:
