Tate vs. Zingano, Browne vs. Gonzaga, Mighty Mouse vs. Moraga added to TUF 17 Finale

The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale shapes as a stacked fighter, taking place on April 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Today, the UFC announced three high-profile main card bouts for TUF 17 Finale. The first is the headlining bout between Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga for the UFC Flyweight title. This will be Johnson’s second title defense, shortly after edging John Dodson via decision. John Moraga comes to this fight with a record of 13-1, 2-0 inside the Octagon.

Also on the card, Travis “Hapa” Browne returns against Gabriel Gonzaga. Both fighters will be looking to make a statement, with sights on re-claiming their spot in the mix for a shot at the UFC Heavyweight title. Browne is coming off a loss to Bigfoot Silva, while Gonzaga is currently on a two-fight win streak, both via submission.

Last but definitely not the least, Miesha Tate will celebrate her UFC debut against the relatively unknown Cat Zingano.  This will be the second WMMA fight in the UFC, more than one month after Ronda Rousey defends her title against Liz Carmouche. Zingano is a well-rounded fighter with a convincing 7-0 record (3 KO/TKO, 3 Sub), looking to put a dent in Miesha Tate‘s title shot aspirations. As for Tate, victory over Zingano will earn “Cupcake” the long-awaited rematch with Ronda Rousey, so we can definitely see this as a #1 contender bout.

    If iI brought Meisha tate around to meet my family dressed the way she is in the photo with kneecap boots, scraggy hair and short hot pants, my dad would say "make sure you wear two rubbers just to be on the safe side…

    Well ronda is hot but her cute no make up look is like I said CUTE. But DAMN her traps are so manly. I gave up on shrugs years ago because I could not get them like that. All in all pushing from behind could be a weird site with those shoulders. Oh and what the hell is a stacked fighter????????
