Maia, Grove and Bonnar added to Ultimate Finale

The Ultimate Finale, scheduled for Dec. 4 on Spike to determine the winner of Season 12 of "The Ultimate Fighter," just got more interesting with two newly announced fights.

1) Demian Maia vs. Kendall Grove

Maia, one of the top middleweights, is coming off a win over Mario Miranda at UFC 118 after his loss to Anderson Silva at UFC 112. Grove won a split decision over Goran Reljic at UFC 116. Grove needs a win here to remain relevant in the division.

2) Stephan Bonnar vs. Igor Pokrajac

Bonnar, pictured above, won fight of the night at UFC 116 with a TKO of Krzyzstof Sosznyski, and is likely to be bleeding on his way out to the cage from the locker room. Pokrajac submitted James Irvin in his last fight but has little exposure to fans who watch their fights on television.
