Heavyweights Travis Browne, Gabriel Gonzaga to Clash at ‘The Ultimate Fighter 17’ Finale
have agreed to square off at “The Ultimate Fighter 17”
UFC President Dana White announced the matchup via Twitter on
Monday. The “TUF 17” finale takes place at the Joint at Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on April 13.
Browne went unbeaten in his first five UFC appearances, most
notably knocking out fellow prospect Stefan
Struve with a superman punch at UFC 130. “Hapa” came up short
in his first headlining appearance, however, suffering a
first-round technical knockout defeat to Antonio
Silva at UFC on FX 5. The Jackson’s MMA product later revealed
that he had torn a hamstring early in the Oct. 5 bout.
After a one-fight hiatus, Gonzaga returned to the Octagon in 2012
with a first-round submission of Ednaldo
Oliveira at UFC 142. Most recently, the onetime heavyweight
title challenger tapped Ben Rothwell
with a guillotine choke in the second round of their UFC on FX 7

It is not my place to talk about the quality of TUF 19, because the only episode I watched was Cathal Pendred versus Eddie Gordon, and I don't need to see it again. However, everyone else from Joe Beerbelly to Dana White has derided the quality of this season's cast, and the end result is that only a handful of fighters (including Pendred for the Ireland show) are ge more
