Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced the remaining undercard matchups for “The Ultimate Fighter 20” finale on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas.
At the top of the heap is an intriguing pairing between Joanne Calderwood -- who was defeated by Rose Namajunas on this week’s episode -- and debuting Korean talent Seo Hee Ham.
The other five fights announced feature Bec Rawlings against Heather Clark, Lisa Ellis versus Felice Herrig, Angela Hill taking on Emily Kagan, Aisling Daly fighting Alex Chambers, and Angela Magana against Tecia Torres.
The fights join a card that features Jeremy Stephens against Charles Oliveira and will take place at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The event will air on Fox Sports 1.
Ham, who has fought exclusively in Asia since 2007, has won six straight fights en route to signing with the UFC. She will take on one of the more promising prospects on “TUF 20” in Calderwood, a muay Thai stylist who is undefeated as a professional.
Rawlings and Clark is a battle of two women who have both lost two of their last three fights, while Ellis and and Herrig is a matchup featuring a pair of fighters who have competed for both Bellator MMA and Invicta Fighting Championships.
Hill has only fought once professionally, defeating Stephanie Skinner at USFFC 18 in April. Kagan, a Jackson-Wink MMA product, has only been lost once in her career, tapping to Namajunas at Invicta FC 4.
Daly lost three straight fights in 2012 before coming back a year later and getting a win at CWFC 63. She will take on Chambers, a 36-year-old Australian who has earned three of her four wins via stoppage.
Lastly, Magana will face the lone fighter on the reality show who received a second chance. Despite losing twice on the show, Torres maintains an unblemished mark as a professional, while Magana has lost two straight scraps.
