A welterweight bout has been added to The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale in June as “Bad” Brad Blackburn will take on undefeated UFC newcomer Edgar Garcia.
Blackburn last fought at UFC 94 back in January against very tough UFC veteren Ryo Chonan; Blackburn scored a unanimous decision victory over Chonan. Blackburn is currently on a 4 fight winning streak, with the last 2 of the wins taking place in the UFC.
Garcia last fought at WEC 39 in January; he scored a very impressive quick KO over former WEC welterweight contender Hiromitsu Miura. Garcia was one of the welterweights picked up by the UFC after the WEC dissolved its welterweight division.
