The TUF 21 Finale takes place July 12 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The bulk of the card, which also includes season-ending fights from “TUF 21,” airs on FOX Sports 1 following early prelims on MMAjunkie.
Doane will be looking to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Ildemar Alcantara this past September in Brazil. The loss snapped a three-fight winning streak for the Hawaiian, including victories in his first two UFC fights. In his promotional debut in January 2014, he choked out Leandro Issa for a “Submission of the Night” bonus. He followed that up with a split-decision win over Marcus Brimage at UFC 175 this past July.
Sanders is in need of his first UFC win after back-to-back losses since joining the promotion in 2014. In his debut, he dropped a TKO to Yosdenis Cedeno when he couldn’t answer the second-round bell. He followed that up with a 39-second submission loss to Pedro Munhoz this past October.
