Featherweights Jeremy Stephens and Charles Oliveira were announced as the co-main event for the TUF 20 Finale on Dec. 12. The pair of top-ranked fighters will trade leather at The Palms in Las Vegas.

The UFC reported the bout on Tuesday.

Stephens is coming off of a loss to Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 44. The decision loss snapped a 3-fight win streak for the Alliance trained athlete. The 28-year-old remains ranked at no. 10 in the 145-pound division.

Oliveira was expected to battle Nik Lentz at UFC Fight Night 50, but fell ill shortly after weigh-ins. Their bout was scratched as a result. Oliveira last submitted Hatsu Hioki in a riveting fight. He has earned a post-fight bonus in each of his last three performances. The Brazilian stands at no. 14 in the rankings.

A battle for the inaugural strawweight championship bout headlines The Ultimate Fighter season 20 Finale live from The Palms on Dec. 12. Tickets go on sale on Oct. 24 for the fight card.
