Johnathan Brookins vs Charles OliveiraThe Ultimate Fighting Championship on Friday announced that a trio of bouts has been verbally agreed to for the TUF Live Finale on June 1 in Las Vegas.

TUF 12 winner Jonathan Brookins will face Charles Oliveira, Max Holloway meets Pat Schilling, and John Albert squares off with Byron Bloodworth.

Brookins (13-4) won The Ultimate Fighter as a lightweight, but then dropped back down to featherweight, where he is 1-1 in the Octagon. He is coming off of a victory over Vagner Rocha at UFC on Fuel TV 1.

Brookins’ opponent, Oliveira (15-2), is 3-2 with 1 no contest inside the Octagon. He also dropped down to featherweight for his last bout, scoring a first-round submission victory over Eric Wisely.

Holloway (4-1) suffered the only defeat of his career thus far in his UFC debut on Super Bowl weekend. He lost at UFC 143 to Dustin Poirier, who headlines the UFC on Fuel TV 3 fight card.

He’ll try to score his first victory in the Octagon against Schilling (5-1), who also lost his promotional debut. Daniel Pineda defeated Schilling at UFC on FX 1, knocking him out of his unbeaten streak.

Coming off of a loss to Ivan Menjivar at UFC on Fuel TV 1, Albert (7-2) emerged from the cast of TUF 14. He scored a victory over Dustin Pague at the TUF 14 Finale prior to dropping the bout to Menjivar.

He’ll also be looking to course correct when he steps in the Octagon with Bloodworth (6-2). Having lost to Mike Easton at UFC on Versus 6 last October, Bloodworth is trying to make a rebound of his own, and won’t likely be easy prey for Albert.

A No. 1 welterweight contender’s bout between Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann and the TUF Live finals headline the June 1 fight card in Las Vegas.
