The next UFC event, The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption Finale, on July 7 will feature Teruto Ishihara as he fights former title challenger Gray Maynard. Ishihara has quickly become when one the most exciting fighters coming out of TAM.

The next night, TAM’s crown jewel, UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt was scheduled to defend his title against former champion, and former TAM member, TJ Dillashaw. However, Garbrandt was forced to withdraw due to a back injury.

The next UFC event will take place in Scotland as TAM’s fastest rising star Cynthia Calvillo fights Joanne Calderwood in the co-main event.

On July 22, at a UFC on FOX event, TAM’s toughest fighter Darren Elkins will fight Dennis Bermudez in Uniondale, New York.
