Ultimate Fighter Live Finale

By Josh Reese

The Ultimate Fighter Live is set to finish its first season with Fox, on FX this Friday night. Though the season has seen its ups and downs the series has been a fairly good one, with bitter rivals Dominic Cruz and Urijah Faber coaching the Lightweight group.

The two coaches spent the season training the Lightweight fighters with team Faber getting his two fighters in to the finale Mike Chiesa (7-0) and Al Iaquinta (5-1). The two will square for the first time as a part of the UFC. Only the winner will come out with a guaranteed contract, but more then likely a few more could get the nod with good showings.
