The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 winner Jonathan Brookins is set to face off against Jeremy Stephens in June at The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale. This will be Brookins first bout since defeating fellow cast member Michael Johnson to earn the UFC six figure contract.

Brookins (12-3) comes into the fight on a four-fight win streak. His last defeat came at the hands of current UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo back in November of 2008. Brookins will look to capitalize on the opportunity of facing an experience fighter in Stephens.

Stephens (19-6) has won three of his last four bouts and Most recently won Knockout of the Night honors after shutting down Marcus Davis at UFC 125. Stephens has been a part of the UFC for almost four years now with 11 fights with a record of 6-5. Although he has had his ups and downs, he would like nothing more than to derail any shot Brookins has at moving up the lightweight ladder quickly.

Season 13 of The Ultimate fighter will debut March 30 on Spike TV. The TUF Finale will take place at The Pearl inside The Palms in Las Vegas. Expected to headline the card are fellow lightweights Clay Guida and Anthony Pettis.
