While the Ultimate Fighter Live finale is still over a week away, some of the other competitors on the show are starting to find out their match-ups for the June 1 card already.

Former Chute Boxe coach Cristiano Marcello will face Sam Sicilia on the season finale show on June 1 in Las Vegas.

Marcello’s manager Nima Safapour from Alchemist Management announced the fight via Twitter on Wednesday.

A favorite heading into the show, Crisiano Marcello didn’t get a chance to ease into the competition as he faced Team Cruz top pick Justin Lawrence for his first fight after making it into the house.

Unfortunately, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt wasn’t able to topple Lawrence, and he lost by TKO, but now gets the chance to fight again this time on the TUF Live Finale.

At 10-0 heading into the show, Sam Sicilia had one of the most impressive records early on and was looking to advance after being Team Cruz’s second overall pick, but ran into a tough opponent in Chris Saunders during his time in the house.

A razor close decision ended with Sicilia on the losing end, but much like his opponent on June 1, he’ll have another shot at redemption.

Marcello vs. Sicilia will take place on the June 1 Ultimate Fighter Live finale card along with several other competitors from the show as well as the main event pitting Jake Ellenberger against Martin Kampmann in a five round showdown in the welterweight division.
