The “Ultimate Fighter” season 13 finale will be held at the Palms Casino Resort on June 4. The main card will feature the highly anticipated match between Clay Guida, and the last WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. The main card will also feature a fight between the two remaining MMA fighters on TUF, who will be revealed on the June 1 episode of the show. Here are my predictions for the “Ultimate Fighter” season 13 finale.
Anthony Pettis versus Clay Guida
Pettis is coming off a very impressive victory over Ben Henderson. Pettis is the better striker, and he has already proven he has the skills to deal with tough wrestlers like Guida. Guida is a tough gatekeeper at the lightweight division, but Pettis should be able to pass his first test in the UFC. Pettis wins by decision.
George Roop versus Josh Grispi
Coming off the second loss of his MMA career, Grispi will try to get back in the winning column. Roop is a tough MMA fighter, but his toughness won’t be enough to get him past Grispi. Grispi wins by submission.
Scott Jorgensen versus Ken Stone
Both MMA fighters will be making their UFC debut at the”Ultimate Fighter” season 13 finale. Tough one to call, but I have to go with Jorgenson who should be able to take Stone down and keep him there. Jorgensen wins via decision.
Daniel Downes versus Jeremy Stephens
Coming off his impressive knockout victory over Marcus Davis at UFC 125, Stephens will look to give newcomer Downes a hostile welcome in his debut. Downes should be able to withstand the pressure, and grind out the victory in his UFC debut. Downes wins by decision.
Ed Herman versus Tim Credeur
Herman’s MMA career has had a lot of bumps lately, and things don’t look like they’ll be changing anytime soon. Herman’s main strengths are his grappling abilities. Unfortunately for Herman, Credeur is significantly better grappling as well as striking. Credeur wins by submission.
Fabio Maldonado defeats Kyle Kingsbury
Reuben Duran defeats Francisco Rivera
