Maximo Blanco vs. Mike De La Torre At TUF 21 Finale

A featherweight face off pinning Maximo Blanco against Mike De La Torre was revealed today for the TUF 21 Finale event set to take place on July 12th in Las Vegas.

The UFC released the fight this afternoon, at this time it is thought verbal agreements are in place on both sides.

Blanco recently stuck in a 1-4 skid that included Strikeforce and UFC bouts, has since rebounded with recent decision victories over Andy Ogle and Daniel Hooker.

De La Torre had a subsequent submission defeat to Brian Ortega but it was later overturned when Ortega failed a drug test due to drostanolone, an anabolic steroid.
