'TUF 23' winner Andrew Sanchez meets Ryan Janes at TUF 26 Finale in December

The next edition of the live finale of “The Ultimate Fighter” has its latest fight booking, and it features a past “TUF” winner.

“TUF 23” light heavyweight winner Andrew Sanchez (9-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) will take on Ryan Janes (9-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) at the TUF 26 Finale in December. UFC officials recently announced the new booking.

The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale takes place Dec. 1 at Park Theatre in Las Vegas. The event will air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

“El Dirte” Sanchez won “TUF 23” at light heavyweight with a unanimous decision over Khalil Rountree in July 2016. Then he returned to middleweight and took a decision from Trevor Smith at UFC Fight Night 102 this past December. But in April, he had his four-fight winning streak snapped with Anthony Smith knocked him out after a head kick at UFC on FOX 24.

Ryan Janes

Janes is in need of a win. After starting his career 9-1, including a unanimous decision over Keith Berish at UFC Fight Night 102, he has dropped back-to-back fights. At UFC Fight Night 105 in February, he was submitted by Gerald Meerschaert. And at UFC Fight Night 113 in Scotland in July, he dropped a decision to Jack Marshman. The losses were the Canadian’s first since 2009.

With the addition, the latest TUF 26 Finale card includes:

  • Gerald Meerschaert vs. Eric Spicely
  • Sean O’Malley vs. Terrion Ware
  • Ryan Janes vs. Andrew Sanchez
