The Ultimate Fighting Championships has confirmed that Dean Lister (10-5) will take on MMA veteran Jeremy Horn (88-17-5) at the Finale of The Ultimate Fighter season 7 reality show.
Dean Lister in one of the top grapplers in MMA today, defeated the likes of Saulo Ribeiro, Nathan Marquardt, Marcio ‘Pe De Pano’ Cruz and Alexandre Ferreira to capture the 2003 Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Absolute tournament crown. Lister returns to the cage for the first time in 2008 after a torn bicep muscle kept him out of action, most of 2007.
Horn lost his last fight in the UFC to Nathan Marquardt via Guillotine Choke. He took the fight on a few days notice after Thales Leites was forced out the fight with an injury.
