Canadian prospect, Mike Ricci was nearly flawless in his route to the finale of The Ultimate Fighter 16. He defeated fellow cast-mates Dom Waters and Michael Hill by unanimous decisions and ended with a knockout of Neil Magny to earn a spot in the final. On his official record, Ricci has won two out his last three fights, including a first round TKO victory over Jesse Ronson in April of last year.

Colton Smith was relatively unknown before his appearance on the Ultimate Fighter, but used his superior wrestling to earn decision wins over Eddy Ellis, Igor Araujo, and Jon Manley to earn a shot at this season’s title. Officially, Smith is 3-1 in mixed martial arts career, most recently suffering a second round knockout loss to Steve Montgomery in February.
