Team Faber’s Al Iaquinta, Michael Chiesa advance to TUF Live Finals
The grand finale of “The Ultimate Fighter: Live” will be all-Team Faber affair.
In tonight’s regular-season finale of the FX show, Al Iaquinta (5-1-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Mike Chiesa (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) both picked up victories in the tournament’s semifinal round and now meet a week from today at The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale.
The tourney-championship bout pits Urijah Faber’s No. 1 pick against his No. 5 pick.
The TUF Live Finale takes place next Friday, June 1, at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The main card, including a Jake Ellenberger vs. Martin Kampmann co-headliner, airs on FX. FUEL TV carries the prelims, which includes many eliminated cast members.
