Nate Diaz set to face Joe Stevenson at TUF 9 Finale on June 20

Nate Diaz (10-3) will fight Joe Stevenson (29-10) at The Ultimate Fighter season nine finale on June 20th according to the UFC.

Nate Diaz, brother of UFC veteran and current Strikeforce fighter, Nick Diaz, is the winner of the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter. Diaz was undefeated in the UFC on a five fight win streak until he met Clay Guida at UFC 94 in January.

Joe Stevenson has lost three of his last four bouts and desperately needs a win to stay alive in the UFC’s lightweight division. In fact, it is quite possible Stevenson’s job could be on the line in this fight. Although his recent losses have been against top lightweights Sanchez, Florian, and Penn, it is rare the UFC will keep a fighter with three losses in a row.
