The UFC announced six undercard fights for the Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale on Wednesday -- including one surprise debut.

Tecia Torres will take on Angela Magana, Joanne Calderwood fights newcomer Seo Hee Ham, Felice Herrig meets Lisa Ellis, Angela Hill faces Emily Kagan, Aisling Daly takes on Alex Chambers and Bec Rawlings fights Heather Jo Clark. The bouts were announced on FOX Sports Live following the penultimate episode of The Ultimate Fighter's 20th season.

The other undercard bout will likely be between the losers of the two semifinal matchups. On next week's episode, Rose Namajunas faces Randa Markos and Carla Esparza meets Jessica Penne with a spot in the TUF Finale main event on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas on the line. The tournament winner will be crowned the UFC's first women's strawweight champion.

Torres, who was seeded third coming into the show, fell to Esparza by decision in the quarterfinals and Calderwood fell to Namajunas in the quarters, both on Wednesday's episode. Aisling Daly and Felice Herrig also lost in the quarterfinals, to Penne and Markos, respectively.

Ham, a top South Korean prospect, will make her UFC debut against Calderwood. She is the current DEEP Jewels 106-pound champion and has won six straight. Her nickname is "Hamderlei Silva" for her ferocious fighting style.

A key featherweight fight between Jeremy Stephens and Charles Oliveira has been announced as the co-main event of the TUF 20 Finale. Exciting lightweights Daron Cruickshank and K.J. Noons will also fight on the card.
