    Nate Diaz vs. Joe Stevenson signed for The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale in June

    by John Morgan on Mar 10, 2009 at 4:10 pm ET
    [​IMG]While not yet officially announced by the organization, the live finale for "The Ultimate Fighter 9" has added a lightweight showdown between former "TUF" champions Nate Diaz (10-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC) and Joe Stevenson (29-10 MMA, 6-4 UFC).

    MMAMadness first reported the that the pair had verbally agreed to the contest, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since learned from sources close to the bout that contracts for the fight have been signed.

    The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale is scheduled for June 20 at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

    Stevenson has endured a tough 1-3 stretch while facing some of the lightweight division's top talent. The winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 2," Stevenson was submitted by current UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn in January 2008 and again by current no. 1 contender Kenny Florian in November 2008.

    Stevenson last fought in a unanimous decision loss to Diego Sanchez in the "TUF 1" champion's first bout at 155 pounds.

    Diaz will also be looking to bounce back from a loss. The "TUF 5" winner dropped a split decision to Clay Guida at UFC 94 in January. Prior to the defeat, Diaz had won five straight bouts for the organization, including four by submission.

    With the addition to the card, the TUF 9 Finale now includes:
    • Lightweight finalist No. 1 vs. No. 2
    • Welterweight finalist No. 1 vs. No. 2
    • Clay Guida vs. Diego Sanchez
    • Nate Diaz vs. Joe Stevenson
    • John Howard vs. Anthony Johnson

    guaranteed to excite the shit out of viewers, and doesnt cost much money. Perfect guy to put on free cards.

    Good way to promote him as an up and coming 170'er.


    I was hoping the rumours of Danzig-Stevenson were true, but Diaz will give Joe a tough fight. Diaz's reach should be able to give Joe a tough time.
