TUF Nations Finale card finalized, all-Canadian match-ups in both tournament finals


Following last night's episode of TUF Nations, the full season finale card is now officially set for next Wednesday in Quebec City, Quebec.

We now have a full lineup of 13 fights set for the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada. The Fox Sports 1 card features a main event between middleweights Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy, the TUF Nations coaches fight of Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke (at welterweight), and the two TUF tournament finals. This international edition of TUF was pegged as Canada vs. Australia, and it was a blowout for Canada, who make up all 4 of the finalists as of the results from Wednesday night's episode. Sheldon Westcott cemented his place in the WW final with the rare Von Flue Choke stoppage against Vik Grujic. Elias Thoroudou will be Wescott's opponent after his decision win vs. Tyler Manawaroa. Chad Leprise's stunning KO of Kajan Johnson earned him a MW finals spot opposite Olivier Aubin-Mercier, who stopped Richard Walsh with a 1st round submission.

The main card opens up with a featherweight encounter between contender Dustin Poirier and Akira Corassani, who is still undefeated in the UFC. Meanwhile, the prelims feature several familiar faces, including George Roop, Dustin Kimura, Mark Bocek, Sarah Kaufman, Sam Stout, and K.J. Noons. Interestingly enough, TUF Nations' Nordine Taleb is on the Fight Pass prelims, and after the event is over, you'll see Taleb on the season premiere of TUF 19. That's a bit of a head-scratcher.

Here's the complete fight card, with the main card starting at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT and leading into the TUF 19 debut at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT.
