A pair of ex-Ultimate Fighter competitors will meet in December, as lightweights John Cofer and Mike Rio have signed to square off at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. The event takes place December 15 from The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Both Cofer and Rio were on the first-ever live season of The Ultimate Fighter. Cofer was part of Urijah Faber’s team, while Rio fought for Dominick Cruz.
Cofer (7-2) lost his UFC debut to Justin Lawrence, while Rio (8-1) was unable to compete and will be making his debut.
