A middleweight matchup between Alessio Sakara and Rousimar Palhares has been booked for The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale on December 5 in Las Vegas, Tatame reports.
The fight between Sakara and Palhares was originally scheduled to take place at UFC 99 in June, then was shifted to UFC 101 on August 8. An broken leg forced Palhares out of the fight, while Sakara remained on the card, defeating Thales Leites by split decision.
Sakara (12-7) is 2-1 since dropping down to middleweight last year, losing his 185-pound debut to Chris Leben before picking up back-to-back wins over Joe Vedepo and Leites.
Palhares (9-2) is 2-1 since debuting with the UFC last year, defeating Ivan Salaverry and, most-recently in January, Jeremy Horn, while suffering a loss to Dan Henderson last September.
