The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate Finale (also known as The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship.[9] It took place on November 30, 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.[10]

Background[edit]

The event was expected to be headlined by a UFC Flyweight Championship bout between the current champion Demetrious Johnson and top contender Joseph Benavidez.[11] The two previously met at UFC 152 in the finals of the inaugural Flyweight Tournament, with Johnson winning the bout via split decision. However, on November 10, it was announced that Anthony Pettis withdrew from the main event on UFC on Fox 9 and the Johnson/Benavidez bout was moved to that event.[12]

Featured on the card were the finals from The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate in both men's and women's bantamweight divisions.[10]

Zak Cummings was originally scheduled to face Sergio Moraes, but withdrew due to injury. He was replaced by Sean Spencer, but Cummings would also pull out and Drew Dober would replace him.[13]

Josh Sampo missed the 126 lb weight limit at the weigh ins and forfeited 10% of his purse as a penalty.[14]
