The UFC's next card will take place in the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and will see the conclusion of the latest season of TUF. The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale on November 30th was originally supposed to have a title fight on top but injuries on other cards caused some re-shuffling. Instead, a lightweight tilt between Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard has been promoted to the main event. This will be the third meeting between the two men, with each winning one of the first two (though Nate's win came on TUF and is "unofficial"). The bout will be a three-rounder instead of the usual five due to the late change.

Not many bouts on the card have been decided yet due to The Ultimate Fighter not being over yet. The next two fights below the main event will be the finals of the men's and women's 135-pound brackets. And since there aren't a lot of established fighters booked for the card yet, you can bet that the preliminary card will be littered with fights between TUF 18 contestants.

Here is what the current card looks like:

Nate Diaz vs. Gray Maynard
TUF 18 men's tournament final
TUF 18 women's tournament final
Walter Harris vs. Jared Rosholt
Maximo Blanco vs. Akira Corassani
Tom Niinimaki vs. Rani Yahya
Sean Spencer vs. Drew Dober
