The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale

April 13th, 2013

Las Vegas, Nevada

The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

———————————————————–

Sam Sicilia saw a seven-fight win streak come to an end in his sophomore appearance in the UFC, losing to Rony Bezerra in the second round via TKO at UFC 153. Sicilia earned a knockout win of his own in his UFC debut, stopping Cristiano Marcello in the second round.

Hard-hitting, Maximo Blanco likely fights for his UFC career, losing back-to-back fights since signing with Zuffa back in September of 2011. Blanco had a six-fight win streak snapped in his Strikeforce debut after Pat Healy submitted him with a rear naked choke in the second round. He then dropped to featherweight and transferred to the UFC, but lost a split decision to Marcus Brimage at UFC 145.
