The Ultimate Fighter 8 Results

"The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale" takes place at the Palms in Las Vegas and airs live on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The only fighter to miss weight was American Top Team's Wilson Gouveia, who came in four pounds over the middleweight class, or three pounds over with consideration of the one-pound allowance for non-title fights.

Gouveia wasn't allowed by the comission to weigh-in again for safety reasons and will forfeit 20% of his purse. Gouveia, who successfully made the drop from light heavyweight in his last fight, will now fight Jason MacDonald, 184 pounds, at a catchweight of 189 pounds.
