Two submission artists will collide at the TUF 18 Finale.

Sources close to the situation told MMAFighting.com that Zak Cummings and Sergio Moraes, both coming off first-round submission victories inside the Octagon, are set to meet on Nov. 30 in Las Vegas. Combate first reported the news.

Cummings (16-3), a TUF 17 alum, made his official UFC debut against Ben Alloway at UFC Fight Night 27, scoring his ninth submission win in MMA with a brabo choke that earned him an extra $50,000 for the best submission of the night.

Moraes (8-2), a decorated black belt in jiu-jitsu, lost to Daniel Sarafian in the semifinals of TUF: Brazil 2 in 2012, but replaced an injured Sarafian in the finals against Cezar Ferreira. Following the loss to Ferreira in his UFC debut, "Serginho" submitted Renee Forte and Neil Magny in Brazil.

The TUF 18 Finale will be headlined by the flyweight clash between 125-pound champion Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez.
