Next week’s Season 18 live finale for “The Ultimate Fighter” has a new flyweight bout added to the docket, and the UFC has two new prospects added to its 125-pound division.

Newcomers Ryan Benoit (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) and Josh Sampo (10-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC) have signed to make their promotional debuts against each other on the card. UFC officials announced the fight booking on Wednesday.

All of you L2 players should recognize both of these guys.
This has potential to be a very good Flyweight bout. Both guys have done well on the smaller circuits and will be looking to make a name for themselves.

Great signings. Sampo is excellent and Benoit has potential to be amazing if he puts the time in the gym.

Fly weight is getting a big boost with these two, Montague, Pettis and Campuzano recently.

Nice additions, should be a scrappy fight with both looking to prove their worth. A week and a half's notice doesn't make it easy either. I'm really looking forward to this one

Yes that is correct. Sampo did submit Villa in the 5th Round in a Title fight over at CFA. He since defended that Title against Sam Thao.

Should be a fun scrap. Just wish Benoit would switch over to Alpha Male. They could turn him into an animal.

That would be the perfect camp for him. He's a heavy hitter and Ludwig would tighten his striking up and the others would fix those holes in his game that I think Sampo is going to exploit.
