TUF 19 Finale -- headlined by "Edgar vs. Penn 3" -- was recently announced for Mandalay Bay Events Center on Sun., July 6, 2014, which takes place less than 24 hours after Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) ties a ribbon around its UFC 175 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside the same venue in Las Vegas, Nevada (details).
