Five new fights are now official for next week's The Ultimate Fight Live Finale, and eight of the competitors are eliminated cast members from the show.

They include lightweights Justin Lawrence (3-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. John Cofer (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), Myles Jury (9-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Chris Saunders (9-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), Cristiano Marcello (12-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Sam Sicilia (10-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), and Daron Cruickshank (10-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Chris Tickle (7-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

In non-"TUF" action, Erik Perez (10-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has replaced Byron Bloodworth (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and now meets fellow bantamweight John Albert (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

The TUF Live Finale takes place next Friday, June 1, at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The main card, including a Jake Ellenberger vs. Martin Kampmann headliner, airs on FX. FUEL TV is expected to carry the prelims, including all the above fights.

I was hoping we'd see most of the cast be on the finale

I like the idea of Marcello/Sicilia and Cruickshank/Tickle.

Hope Ogle gets a fight too.

I was thinking maybe Ogle wont be cleared because of the elbow KO, im sure if thats the case they will have him on another card.

I am eating crow right now. I thought this season of TUF would be a let down, but they actually found some good prospects. There were a lot of good fights on the show, and I am actually pretty stoked for the upcoming Ultimate Finale.

All of these fights should be great. I am really looking forward to seeing how Cruickshank and Lawrence rebound from their respective losses.

Tough fight for Tickle.

marcello/Sicilia is a sick fight.

And I hope Ogle gets a fight too, but not at Lightweight.

I'd like to see Lawrence and Saunders do well.
