Mike Trizano, who won the latest season of “The Ultimate Fighter” in July, is going to take on Luis Pena in a lightweight bout. Trizano (7-0) won a split-decision over Joe Giannetti to win the show’s lightweight tournament. Pena (5-0) was also on the show but suffered a foot injury in the quarterfinals.
