Lightweight strikers Daron Cruickshank and K.J. Noons will lock horns at "The Ultimate Fighter 20" finale.
The UFC announced the matchup on Thursday. The “TUF 20” finale takes place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Dec. 12 and will see the promotion’s first-ever women’s strawweight champion crowned in the main event.
Cruickshank is 6-3 in the Octagon since appearing on “TUF 15.” “The Detroit Superstar” has won three of his last four fights, including a unanimous decision victory over Anthony Njokuani at UFC Fight Night “MacDonald vs. Saffiedine.”
A seven-time Strikeforce veteran, Noons enters the bout on a two-fight winning streak. The 31-year-old outpointed George Sotiropoulos at UFC 166 before scoring a 30-second knockout against Sam Stout on April 16.
