Quick Picks: The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale

After another fairly forgettable, but actually pretty high-quality, season of The Ultimate Fighter we get the finale event this Friday night. With the incredible UFC 218 coming the night after, this is predictably much less interesting but will see a new women’s champion crowned at 125 lbs.
