Cut in 2008 after a 2-3 stint in the UFC, Carneiro has been wandering the regional wastelands for the past half decade, in search of a way back to the top. Stints in Shine Fights, United Glory, and Road FC eventually led him to one of the biggest US regional shows of 2014, Battlegrounds MMA 5: One Night Elimina read news >>

Friday's TUF 20 Finale sees an infusion of strawweight talent, most of whom will likely stick around to build up the new division. Meanwhile, Yancy Medeiros will want to further distance himself from an awkward 0-2 (1NC) start in the UFC. The first women's strawweight title will be given to the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 20 season Friday night at the TUF 20 Finale.
