A new episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption airs tonight (Wednesday, June 28th) at 10 PM ET on Fox Sports 1. Last week, Dhiego Lima defeated Tom Gallicchio to become the first fighter to ever reach two TUF finals. It looks as if Gallicchio will still be on the season finale card, just not for the grand prize.
Tonight’s episode features the second semifinal. We know that Jesse Taylor is set to compete, but it’s no longer certain that James Krause will be his opponent. Krause has an ongoing eye problem that may prevent him from fighting Taylor, so we could see a replacement. You can discuss the show in the comments section, then Beau Dure will have a full recap on Thursday.
Here are the two sets of teams, with the winner taking home $250,000. The season finale is Friday, July 7th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Team Cody Garbrandt: Seth Baczynski (eliminated), Mehdi Baghdad (eliminated), Eddie Gordon (eliminated), Hayder Hassan (eliminated), Julian Lane (eliminated), Justin Edwards(eliminated), Johnny Nunez (eliminated)
