Sarah Moras vs Alexis Dufresne set for TUF 19 finale in Las Vegas

Sarah Moras
Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting reports today that TUF 18 contestant Sarah Moras will face UFC newcomer Alexis Dufresne on The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale July 6 in Las Vegas. Sarah is from Kelowna, BC. Her record is 3-1. I think a lot of us saw her lose to Raquel Pennington on Invicta FC2 July 28, 2012. Sarah started out OK. But she seemed to run out of gas and lost by unanimous decision. She was on Team Tate in TUF 18 and lost to Peggy Morgan in the semi final. Then she got hurt and did not appear on the TUF 18 finale. Alexis was supposed to make her UFC debut last month against Amanda Nunes but dropped out with a rib injury. Her record is 5-0 but she hasn't beat anyone of note. The one fight on video is her quick win over Kim Couture in Mexico. It's impossible to assess that fight because it was so short and according to Couture there were weight issues. And anyone who tells you they can assess Alexis' fighting ability based on that fight is an idiot. She trains at Dan Henderson's Team Quest in Temecula, CA. I spoke to her teammate Michelle Ould about her but in the end Alexis is unproven and I guess we'll find out what she has in her UFC debut.
