RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Pena will take on Richie Smullen in a lightweight matchup at the TUF 27 Finale on July 6 in Las Vegas.
The main gimmick of the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter is that each competitor is undefeated in their fighting career. Though Pena is no exception to this, he was ultimately forced to leave the show due to a foot injury following his win over Jose Martinez Jr. in the quarterfinals. With plenty of time between the show's taping and the scheduled event in Las Vegas, the UFC decided to give "Violent Bob Ross" another chance. Standing at 6-3, Pena will have a height advantage over just about every fighter in the 155-pound division, provided he continues to make the weight. With a limited sample size to date, however, it remains to be seen if the 24-year-old Tennessee native can carry his physical advantages to sustained success in the world's best fighting promotion.
