The promotion recently confirmed the updated featherweight matchup
on its website. Melendez was the first to withdraw from the bout
due to injury, and the former Strikeforce champion was replaced by
Glenn. Shortly thereafter, Allen pulled out of the contest and was
replaced by Aguilar.
The “TUF 28” finale takes place at the Pearl Concert Theater at
Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Nov. 30 and is headlined by a
welterweight clash between Kamaru
Usman and Rafael dos
Anjos. The event will also feature the heavyweight and women’s
featherweight finals from the reality show.
Aguilar has won seven consecutive bouts since a loss to UFC veteran
Garcia at Legacy FC 26 in December 2013. “The Angel of Death”
last appeared on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, where
he earned a split decision against Joey Gomez on
July 10 to run his professional mark to 15-1.
Glenn has won three of his last four Octagon appearances, including
a split verdict over Dennis
Bermudez at UFC Fight Night 133 on July 14.
