TUF Finale Gains Maximo Blanco – Sam Sicilia

Maximo Blanco and Sam Sicilia have agreed to a featherweight contest for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Finale.

Blanco will be looking for his first win under the Zuffa umbrella. He was submitted in his only Strikeforce appearance by veteran Pat Healy and lost a split-decision to Marcus Brimage at UFC 145.

Sicilia is 1-1 for the UFC after debuting for them last year. He took a second round TKO over Cristiano Marcello, which was followed by a knockout loss to Rony Mariano Bezerra at UFC 153.

TUF Finale is set for April 13 out of The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The main event features Demetrious Johnson defending his flyweight championship against John Moraga.
