The upcoming TUF 18 Finale has eight fights booked, as Zak Cummings will fight welterweight Sergio Moraes at the November 30th event, which will go down in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Cummings (16-3) is coming off a successful UFC debut, as the experienced wrestler tapped out Ben Holloway with a second round, Brabo Choke at UFC Fight Night 27 in August. The win was Cummings third straight, since he lost by unanimous decision to light-heavyweight Ryan Jimmo, at a Maximum Fighting Championship card in 2011. The 29 year-old is 4-1 in his last five fights.
Moraes (8-2) scored a first round, submission win via triangle-choke over Neil Magny at UFC 163 in his last outing, after tapping out Renee Forte at UFC 153 in October, 2012. Moraes earned “Submission of the Night” honors for his win at UFC 163.
In his UFC debut at UFC 147, Moraes dropped a UD loss to Cezar Ferreira. The 31 year-old is 3-2 in his last five scraps.
The TUF 18 Finale will feature flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson taking on Joseph Benavidez in the main event, and will also see Nate Diaz battle lightweight Gray Maynard. Of course, the card will also feature the TUF 18 Finals for both the women’s and men’s competition.
The November 30th card will be broadcast on FOX Sports 1. Stay tuned to Caged Insider.com for all your UFC news and coverage.
