Dante Rivera and Matthew Riddle will clash at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 Finale at The Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET on SpikeTV, according to MMAWeekly.com.
Both contestants are currently competing as middleweights on this season of the show; however, both have been eliminated from the 16-man tournament-style format.
Rivera defeated John Wood via submission (kimura) to earn a spot in the fighter house during the debut episode. He then went on to outpoint Brandon Sene in a three-round “sudden victory” match, propelling him into the next round.
In his next match, Rivera went up against Jesse Taylor and had no answers for his relentless takedowns and wrestling skills. He went on to lose the match — and his chance at a six-figure contract — via decision.
Riddle, of course, is famous for the brutal jaw-breaking knockout of Dan Simmler in the first episode, as well as living in his mother’s basement and not having a driver’s license.Link
