The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale has a new bantamweight bout for the undercard.
The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale takes place Dec. 1 at Park Theatre in Las Vegas. It airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the full fight card and bout order haven’t been finalized.
The event also features the “TUF 26” tournament final, which crowns the inaugural women’s flyweight champion.
Johns, a former Cage Warriors and Titan FC champion, is still unbeaten five years into his pro run. In his most recent bout, the 25-year-old Welsh fighter picked up a unanimous-decision victory over short-notice opponent Albert Morales. It was his eighth decision win in 14 career victories.
He now takes on Soto, who’s resurrected his career since a three-fight skid that included a title loss to then-champ T.J. Dillashaw in 2014. After subsequent defeats to Anthony Birchak and Michinori Tanaka, the 30-year-old Bellator and Tachi Palace Fights vet had earned submission wins over Chris Beal and Marco Beltran, as well as a decision victory over Rani Yahya in his most recent bout, to push his current winning streak to three.
