With an all-Canada set of tournament finals, plus another pair of new matchups from the house, the TUF Nations Finale now is set for next week.
In the welterweight final, Canadaian teammates Chad Laprise (7-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Olivier Aubin-Mercier (4-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) meet on the main card. And in the middleweight final, Elias Theodorou (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) meets his Team Canada teammate Sheldon Westcott (8-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
The tournament finals were set after Wednesday night’s final regular-season episode of “The Ultimate Fighter: Nations” on FOX Sports 1, which pitted fighters from Australia against a team from Canada.
On the preliminary card, at middleweight, Australia’s Vik Grujic (6-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who lost to Westcott in the semifinals, will meet Team Canada’s Nordine Taleb (8-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC). And at welterweight, Australia’s Chris Indich (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) takes on teammate Richard Walsh (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who fell in the semis against Aubin-Mercier.
