The July 6th, TUF 19 Finale has received a lightweight bout, as the promotion has announced that Jesse Ronson will fight Kevin Lee.

The card will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will feature BJ Penn taking on fellow TUF 19 coach Frankie Edgar.

Ronson (13-4) is still looking for his first UFC win, as the Canadian fighter is coming off split decision losses to Francisco Trinaldo and Michel Prazeres. Prior to the defeats the noted striker had won eight straight.

Lee (7-1) is also hunting for his first Octagon victory, as the Michigan lightweight was decisioned by Al Iaquinta at UFC 169, which marked his promotional debut.

The TUF 19 Finale will also include the middleweight and light-heavyweight finals for the current season.
