TUF 17 Finale weigh-ins slated for April 12 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas


urijah-faber-24.jpgOfficial fighter weigh-ins for The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale take place Friday, April 12, at MGM Grand Hollywood Theatre in Las Vegas.

The nearby Mandalay Bay Events Center plays host to the following day’s FX-televised event, which features a bantamweight headliner between Urijah Faber (27-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Scott Jorgensen (14-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC).

The weigh-ins are free and open to the public. Doors open at 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. PT local time), and the first fighter is on the scale at 3 p.m. PT.

The event also featured the tournament final of “TUF 17,” which currently airs on FX and is in the semifinal round. The tournament final will co-headline the TUF 17 Finale event, and fights between eliminated cast members are expected to be part of the FUEL TV and Facebook prelims.

Due to a scheduling conflict with the smaller Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, officials ultimately booked Mandalay Bay Events Center for the event. It’s the first arena to host a TUF Finale event.

The latest TUF 17 Finale card includes:

  • Urijah Faber vs. Scott Jorgensen
  • TBA vs. TBA – “TUF 17? tournament final
  • Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano
  • Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
  • Cole Miller vs. Bart Palaszewski
  • Justin Lawrence vs. Daniel Pineda
  • Maximo Blanco vs. Sam Sicilia
