Diaz vs Stevenson at TUF 9 finale

MMAMadness first reported the that the pair had verbally agreed to the contest, and MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since learned from sources close to the bout that contracts for the fight have been signed.

The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale is scheduled for June 20 at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

Stevenson has endured a tough 1-3 stretch while facing some of the lightweight division's top talent. The winner of "The Ultimate Fighter 2," Stevenson was submitted by current UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn in January 2008 and again by current no. 1 contender Kenny Florian in November 2008.

Stevenson last fought in a unanimous decision loss to Diego Sanchez in the "TUF 1" champion's first bout at 155 pounds.

Diaz will also be looking to bounce back from a loss. The "TUF 5" winner dropped a split decision to Clay Guida at UFC 94 in January. Prior to the defeat, Diaz had won five straight bouts for the organization, including four by submission.

I am not sure who I am going to take here but if Joe loses he is either going to the WEC or not going to be employed by ZUFFA anymore.

Diaz beats Joe. This shouldn't be hard. They are about even striking and Nate's not going to shoot in on Joe so I doubt we see a guillotine.

Nate's probably going to catch him in a guillotine and send Joe out of the UFC.

I'm glad to see Joe Silva giving another big opportunity to Joe Stevenson, as I thought he hung in there pretty well with Diego Sanchez. This is a fight that makes perfect sense, and I expect a good scrap betwee these two. Diaz should win the decision.

Stevenson will definitely go to the WEC if he's cut.

I don't see Joe winning unless he works on his game a little more. While he is much stronger than Nate, I don't think he has the skills to take him. He's been fighting very 1 dimensional lately.

Diaz via submission Round 2

Diaz has a way of making good fighters look bad, then beating them. He did it with Maynard, Kurt, Guida(lost, but still did it), Neer. He seems to nuetralize there attack, so I see him making Joe nervous to goto the ground, and Joe pressing him against the cage.

War Stevenson, I really hop Joe Daddy can shut Diaz's mouth, two losses in a row would be the surpreme humbling that Nate needs.

I think Joe will earn a hard faught decision here. Diaz is getting better but I think Joe poses problems for him. He is a wrestler that is also a blackbelt, bad for Nate. Joe only looks bad when hes on the the bottom and I dont see Nate putting him there.
