Kyle Kingsbury vs. Fabio Maldonado Added To TUF 13 Finale

Kyle Kingsbury celebrates UFC 126 win

A light heavyweight bout between Kyle Kingsbury and Fabio Maldonado has been added to The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale.

The UFC broke the match up on Tuesday via its official Twitter account.

Kingsbury had a rough early going in the UFC, but has since strung together a three-fight win streak.

He appeared on the eighth season of The Ultimate Fighter and lost to eventual winner Ryan Bader to get into the “fighter house.” He was brought back after injuries forced contestants out of the competition.

He was defeated by Krzysztof Soszynski on the show and then lost to Tom Lawlor at The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale.

He comes into the Maldonado fight on a three-fight winning run, including a 21 second technical knockout over Ricardo Romero at UFC 126.

Maldonado has an 18-3 professional record and made his UFC debut with a third round technical knockout win over James McSweeny at UFC 120.

The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale takes place June 4 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The event’s main card will air live on Spike TV.
