Spike announces TUF 12 Finale co-main events

source: mmaweekly.com

Spike TV on Monday confirmed two co-feature bouts for the Dec. 4 finale of “The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck” at The Pearl at The Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas.

“The Ultimate Fighter Season 1” alum Stephan Bonnar takes on Croatian Igor Pokrajac in a light heavyweight bout, while Season 3’s Kendall Grove faces Demian Maia in a middleweight showdown.

 Both Bonnar and Pokrajac are rebounded from consecutive losses, the former over  Krzysztof Soszynski, and the latter over James Irvin at the UFC on Versus 2.

Kendall Grove was punished by Mark Munoz at UFC 112: "Invincible" earlier this year, but was able to rebound with a much-needed win over Goran Reljic, a split decision at UFC 116: "Lesnar vs. Carwin" back on July 3. He'll need to be at 100-percent to overcome the crafty Maia, despite having a tremendous size and reach advantage.

Why would they? TUF noobs want to watch TUF fighters. Zuffa doesnt give a shit what the longtime fans wants.

I agree completely. The sport needs men like Bonnar to fill out the undercards but the only way he should have anything to do with a co-main or main event is on the mic commenting alongside Joe and Goldy
