The opening matchup of Friday’s The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale preliminary card on FS1 will be a matchup of contestants from this season’s reality show as Shana Dobson will look for her third career victory when she meets Ariel Beck.
Dobson (2-1) was the #16 seed on this season and was defeated in the opening round of the tournament by Roxanne Modafferi. Prior to entering the UFC reality show, both of her wins had come by decision and her only official professional lost came against Nicco Montano.
On this edition of “The MMA Report Podcast Extra,” Dobson previews her matchup on Friday night against Beck at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale. In addition, he recaps her time living in The Ultimate Fighter house and being a 4th grade teacher.
