On Tuesday, April 15, the UFC hosted the weigh-ins for The Ultimate Fighter: Nations Finale which takes place on Wednesday, April 16 from the Colisee Pepsi in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

In the night’s main event, TUF winner Michael Bisping battles Army Ranger and Strikeforce veteran Tim Kennedy in a middleweight affair. The Englishman Bisping has alternated wins and losses over his last four outings, besting Alan Belcher and Brian Stann, but falling short against Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen. Kennedy, meanwhile, has gone 2-0 inside the Octagon since coming over from Strikeforce. The 34-year-old topped Roger Gracie in his promotional debut and knocked out Rafael Natal at UFC Fight Night 31 in November.

The co-main event features the coaches’ fight from TUF: Nations as Canadian Patrick Cote takes on Australia’s Kyle Noke in a welterweight match-up.

Also on the main card, TUF winners will be decided when middleweights Elias Theodorou and Sheldon Westcott lock horns and welterweights Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Chad Laprise square off. Two of the four Canadians will earn six-figure contracts with the promotion.

The 13-fight event kicks off at 3:15 p.m. ET on Wednesday with four bouts streaming on the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 5 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card starting at 7 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
