Thanks to The Ultimate Fighter’s continued existence, we still didn’t know the full fight card and bout order for Friday’s event until Wednesday evening. Middleweight striking sensation Israel Adesanya against Brad Tavares has long been known as the main event, but the TUF tournament semifinals just aired over the past two weeks. Mike Trizano and Joe Giannetti will compete in the lightweight final, while Brad Katona meets Jay Cucciniello in the featherweight final.

Other notable bouts include featherweights Alex Caceres and Martin Bravo, former UFC women’s flyweight title challenger Roxanne Modafferi against Barb Honchak, and middleweight prospect Julian Marquez versus Alessio Di Chirico.
