Jorge Masvidal will square off against Jake Ellenberger at "The Ultimate Fighter 24" finale on Dec. 3 (live odds).
Promotion officials recently confirmed the welterweight pairing. The “TUF 24” finale takes place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and will see reigning flyweight king Demetrious Johnson defend his crown against the reality show winner in the evening’s main event.
Masvidal was originally slated to face Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 98 in Mexico City on Nov. 5, but plans changed when Gastelum was moved to UFC 205 for a matchup with Donald Cerrone. Masvidal halted a two-fight skid in his most recent outing, as he outpointed Ross Pearson at UFC 201.
Ellenberger, meanwhile, earned a much-needed victory when he stopped Matt Brown via technical knockout 1:46 into the first round of their UFC 201 encounter. Prior to that, “The Juggernaut” had lost five of his previous six Octagon appearances.
