The lineup for "The Ultimate Fighter 25" finale continues to take shape, as the UFC on Friday revealed four matchups for the July 7 card.
Angela Hill will face Ashley Yoder at strawweight; Ed Herman will meet C.B. Dollaway at middleweight and Marcel Fortuna will lock horns with Jordan Johnson at light heavyweight. Additionally, a previously reported women’s bantamweight clash between Jessica Eye and Aspen Ladd was also confirmed.
“The Ultimate Fighter 25” finale takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will be televised on Fox Sports 1. A headliner for the event has not been announced.
Hill, the former Invicta FC 115-pound champ, returned to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 104, where she dropped a unanimous decision to current No. 1 contender Jessica Andrade. Yoder, meanwhile, lost a decision to Justine Kish in her promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 102.
Herman has alternated wins and losses in his last six bouts, including a head kick KO defeat to Nikita Krylov in his most recent outing at UFC 201. Dollaway enters the matchup on a three-fight skid after falling to Nate Marquardt, Michael Bisping and Lyoto Machida in his last three appearances.
Fortuna has been victorious in nine of his 10 professional outings and debuted in the Octagon with a first-round knockout of Anthony Hamilton at UFC Fight Night 104. Johnson improved to 7-0 with a three-round verdict over Luis Henrique da Silva at UFC on Fox 23.
