The tip-top of the welterweight division may be in a state of suspended animation, but Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann will attempt to continue their respective rises towards top contender status at Friday night's TUF Live finale.
Ellenberger (27-5) will take his six-fight win streak and a one-pound advantage into their five-round main event at The Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas. He checked in at 171 pounds.
Kampmann (19-5) was 170.
Chiesa suffered the loss of his father during the season, and then had to win two straight come-from-behind fights to advance to the finals. Iaquinta advanced on the strength of a unanimous decision over Vinc Pichel in the semis.
Chiesa weighed in at 156, a one-pound advantage over Iaquinta.
Mike Chiesa (156) vs. Al Iaquinta (155)
