"The Ultimate Fighter 1" winner Diego Sanchez (18-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and UFC welterweight Luigi Fioravanti (12-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) will meet at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale in June.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed the bout with sources close to both fighters. Sherdog.com was the first to announce the fight last week and reported that it will serve as the night's main event.

Sorry dude, but this is like the third time this has been posted. I'm surprised MMAJunkie is far behind as this news is about 5 days old.

That's the main event?
A 15 minute, boring ground fight with the judges giving it to Diego.
Woo wee. The excitement is too much.
I guess they are trying to "push" both fighters.
Yawn.
Zzz...zzz...zzz..zzz

Terrible headliner. Luigi is okay and all, but Diego is just so boring, you typically want your headline fight to be an exciting one and whenever you have Diego's name in there, its typically tough to expect that from him. IMO Diego is dull.

Ummmmm where have you got that impression from? none of his fights have been boring bar the Koscheck fight which was all due to the staph, you cant assuve Diego of being dull when he has finished alot of his fights

I think people may be complaining about this fight a lil bit too much which could come back to haunt you (or delight you ) ok so Luigi isnt a draw at all and his last fight was an unseen prelim LnP fest, but fighting against Diego in the main event should him fight better, he wont be able to take Diego down like he did Cummo, it should be a good fight, id like it slightly better but these TUF Finales are always good cards and im sure the Finale fight will be top notch
