  • Question

  • The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale takes place Sunday, but the 22 fighters must first hit the scale to make weight on Saturday before UFC 175 gets underway.

    Sunday's main card (slated to begin at 9:00 p.m. ET) will be headlined by BJ Penn vs. Frankie Edgar, marking the third time the two elite fighters will have met.


    Edgar won each of the previous two bouts.

    Also on the card will be the two TUF 19 tournament finales. Corey Anderson and Matt Van Buren will meet in the light heavyweight final, and Eddie Gordon will square off against Dhiego Lima in the middleweight final.

    Frankie Edgar will look to go 3-0 against future UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn this weekend at the TUF 19 finale airing live on FOX Sports 1 with two new winners from The Ultimate Fighter also being crowned.

    Edgar and Penn coached against one another during the season, although when it was all said and done, the New Jersey native stood tall with four fighters from his team making it to the finale with a clean sweep in the competition.  Can Penn avenge his team while also beating Edgar for the first time?

    With all the action going down on Sunday night, we're here to give you five good reasons to tune into The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale.

    The day Frankie Edgar arrived in the UFC featherweight division, he was already competing for the title against champion Jose Aldo.  He also managed to push the long reigning title holder to the brink and nearly walked out with the belt.  Now as Edgar approaches his third fight with B.J. Penn, is there a chance he'll contend for the title again very soon?
