All eyes are focused on Saturday night’s UFC 189 pay-per-view, and given the organization’s push of Conor McGregor and the drama surrounding his match-up against first Jose Aldo and now Chad Mendes, that attention is to be expected. But did you know there’s a second, secret UFC event this weekend? Well there is! On Sunday night, the TUF 21 Finale will grace our airwaves.
Don’t worry. It’s totally acceptable at this point to admit you didn’t watch this season of The Ultimate Fighter. Really, no one is tuning in on Sunday to watch the outcome of that particular show. What they are watching for is the main event, which pits a fading-but-still-dangerous Jake Ellenberger against striker extraordinaire Stephen Thompson, as well as the promotional debut of former Invicta FC champ Michelle Waterson (a.k.a., “The Karate Hottie”). Dan Miller and Jorge Masvidal comprise the rest of the noteworthy names on the card.
Still not sure if you’ll DVR “True Detective” and watch this UFC instead? Then here’s a vid of Waterson in action.
