Another solid addition has been confirmed for The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale, which takes place June 21 in Las Vegas.

UFC lightweights Spencer Fisher (20-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Jeremy "Lil' Heathen" Stephens (13-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) have agreed to meet at the Spike TV-televised event, which caps off the current season of "The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rampage vs. Team Forrest."

is this a fight night or a tuf finale, no doubt that the final will air but the other fighters in the house will not get any tv time now,

I have mixed feelings for this fight because i'm a Stephens fan. I love this matchup style wise, but I think Stephens is going to be a little outclassed by Spencer's experience.

So is this going to be another three hour event.

It doesn't look as if anyother match other than the finale will make it to the main card.

I'm callin this for Jeremy trademark win...With Spencer coming off an injury this is a perfect time for Stevens to shine. I really like spencer but i just think Stevens has a alot of potential and is still very young. This guy is gonna make a name for himself.

Spencers got this one, in his last fight against stout his striking was incredible.

I bet they are going to give this a 3 hour spot on Spike. They have to. If this only gets a 2 hour spot then we know pretty much that at least half of the final 16 fighters in the house will not be fighting in the UFC at all.

on the feet fisher will win, stephens chance is to take it to the ground for G'n'P. Eithey way I like both guys and should be an intense fight.

Wow, this is really great matchmaking. Two guys with very even skils.

I think Fisher's size advantage will help him keep it standing up where he will dominate with either a late KO or a UD.

Exactly what i was thinking! It will HAVE to be 3 hours now, surely this fight cant be a prelim! Quality fight but i like Lil Heathen in the upset i think
