There are two UFC events to look forward to as part of International Fight Week 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first one is on Friday, July 8th, as The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale will crown the $250,000 grand prize winner. It’ll be one of Dhiego Lima, James Krause, or Jesse Taylor. You can see Krause vs. Taylor on the next TUF episode on Wednesday.

Your main event is a great one, as WSOF lightweight champion Justin Gaethje makes his UFC debut against contender Michael Johnson. It is awesome that this is a five-rounder. Marc Diakiese and Drakkar Klose will square off in a battle of lightweight prospects. Steve Bosse and Jared Cannonier will surely produce excellent fireworks at 205. TUF Nations middleweight winner Elias Theodorou is set to go up against Brad Tavares, while light heavyweights Jordan Johnson and Marcel Fortuna round out the main card.

Strawweight Angela Hill headlines the prelims against Ashley Yoder, while featherweights Gray Maynard and Teruto Ishihara are featured on UFC Fight Pass.
