TUF 20 Finale Fights Announced

TUF 20 Finale Fights Announced

The UFC’s TUF 20 finale will take place at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, Friday, Dec. 12.

We will not know until next Wednesday’s airing of the show’s finale who will be fighting in the main event for the chance to earn a crack at the organization’s first ever female strawweight (115 pounds) title.

We do know that all of the women who were in the TUF house will compete minus the injured Justine Kish.

Filling in for Kish is the newly signed Ham Seo-Hee who is coming off a fresh defense of her DEEP Jewels title on November 3rd in Japan.

She is riding a six-fight win streak on top of her 15-5 professional record. Ham is the first Korean female to enter the UFC, and she does so coming from a stellar team, Busan Team MAD, which also includes UFC fighters Kim Dong-Hyun, Kang Kyung-Ho, and ROAD FC Flyweight Champion Jo Nam-Jin.

Ham will fight Joanne Calderwood who was eliminated from the show last night via submission from Rose Namajunas.

Here is the complete list of matchups that were announced:

Tecia Torres vs. Angela Magana

‘Rowdy’ Bec Rawlings vs. Heather Jo Clark

Joanne Calderwood vs. Ham Seo-Hee

Felice Herrig vs. Lisa Ellis

Angela Hill vs. Emily Kagan

Aisling Daly vs. Alex Chambers

Next week in the semi-finals, Carla Esparza will teammate Jessica Penne and Namajunas will fight Randa Markos.

The winners of those two previously recorded fights will compete at the finale two nights later.
