As expected two former cast members will be featured in December during The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale.

The event takes place Dec. 4 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and a lightweight fighter will be named the "TUF 12" champion.

Also part of the Spike TV card are "TUF 3" champ Kendall Grove (12-7 MMA, 7-4 UFC) vs. former middleweight title challenger Demian Maia (13-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and "TUF 1" runner-up Stephan Bonnar (12-7 MMA, 6-6 UFC) vs. fellow light heavyweight Igor Pokrajac (22-7 MMA, 1-2 UFC).

I predict an upset here! I think Grove might actually knock him out. I think he has too much size and reach in this fight. I think Grove is much better then Miranda who pretty much gave the fight away.

I got Grove 2nd round TKO here! I think he keeps it standing and picks Maia apart until he caves in!

Grove couldn't deal with little guy Ricardo Almeida. There's no reason to think he'll do better against a bigger and better grappler.

Almedia and Maia are two totally different types of grapplers though. Not to mention he has dangerous knees so if he hit Maia with a knee I think he'd go down fast. I think it is definitely Groves fight to win. I won't say it's a definite but I'm actually giving him a pretty good shot.

So which one of them doesn't use takedowns and BJJ?

Well Maia will come into the fight a heavy favorite, and with good reason. But I agree that Grove's physique will offer him some new challenges that could cause problems for him. Grove has good Jits too and we haven't seen Maia fight anyone with that kind of length.

Here I thought maia vs grove was the main event when it is bonner!!
Crazy he is main eventing this. But I do think the american psycho will finish this fight

No way in hell I pick grove to win,, but I will lay a lot of money on him for a upset
He probably will be at least a 3 to 1 underdog going in
