The finalists for this season’s The Ultimate Fighter are now set, as Court McGee (Team Liddell) and Kris McCray (Team Franklin, formerly Team Ortiz/Punishment) have punched their tickets for Las Vegas.
During last night’s season finale, both finalists competed and won their respective semi-final bouts. McGee outworked a game Brad Tavares before literally choking out the Hawaiian in the remaining seconds of the 3rdRound.
In the second semi-final, McCray avenged his prior loss to Josh Bryant with help from his new all-star team of coaches (Rich Franklin, Forrest Griffin, Gray Maynard and Tyson Griffin). A savvy McCray found a way to keep some fuel in the tank and take home the unanimous decision victory.
The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale will take place on June 19th at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. TUF alums Matt Hamill and Keith Jardine will headline the Spike TV broadcast.
