It is going to be an Ultimate Fighter reunion in Nashville, Tenn. on July 18, 2009, when The Ultimate Fighter season 8 contestant and UFC “TUF 8 Finale” veteran Shane Primm (2-1) takes on TUF 7 contestant and IFL veteran Mike Dolce (4-6) in the main event of Music City MMA’s “Rock & Havoc.”
Primm fights out of Guardian MMA in Murfreesboro, Tenn. He will be looking to get back on track after losing to Krzysztof Soszynski last December. Dolce would like to keep the wins going as he lost six in a row before winning his last bout against Nuri Shakir at “WCF 6” back in March.
In the co-main event, The Ultimate Fighter season 6 contestant (and Cole Miller roommate) Blake Bowman (2-2) will face local product Dustin West. Bowman’s last bout was a loss to Ryan Keenan at “Rumble in Race Town” back in February. West also fought in February with a submission win over Josh Lester at “SSF 6.”
