6 Women’s Strawweight Fights Added to TUF 20 Finale

The quarter finals of The Ultimate Fighter 20 aired last night, with team Melendez’s Rose Namajunas and team Pettis’ Carla Esparza moving on the the semi finals. After the show, ‘TUF Talk’, hosted by Karyn Bryant, aired with both of the winners from the episode. During the segment it was announced that six women’s strawweight fights were set for the TUF 20 finale, which takes place on December 12th, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The fights that were announced are:

  • Emily Kagan vs Angela Hill
  • Aisling Daly vs Alex Chambers
  • Tecia Torres vs Angela Magana
  • Joanne Calderwood vs Seo Hee Ham
  • Bec Rawlings vs Heather Clark
  • Lisa Ellis vs Felice Herrig

All the fighters with exception of Seo Hee Ham were on the season of TUF. Ham was signed to a four-fight deal with the UFC and has a record of 15-5 in MMA and 8-3 in Kickboxing. She is also the former Deep Jewels champion, an organization based out of Japan.

With Carla Esparza facing Jessica Penne and Rose Namajunas facing Randa Markos, in the episode that airs next week, it’s likely the losers of those fights will also meet at the TUF 20 finale.
