The Ultimate Fighter 17 - Episode 6 Results:


Courtesy: Dan Downes, UFC.com



The episode opens in the immediate aftermath of Bubba McDaniel’s loss to Kelvin Gastelum. Jon Jones tries to stay upbeat and assure Bubba that he’ll get that wildcard spot. He then shifts his focus to this week’s fight between Tor Troeng and Josh Samman and concedes that he really doesn’t know that much about the Swede. Coach Chael Sonnen believes that “Tor is a sleeper,” and he’ll surprise everyone.


Troeng vs. Samman Training:

At a Team Sonnen training session, Luke Barnatt and Uriah Hall have a disagreement. Luke is upset with Uriah’s aggressiveness during drills and doesn’t appreciate his attitude. “He’s not a team player...he’s an ego-driven machine.” Uriah thinks that Luke didn’t show up to train that day, and was just being soft.

While Luke and Uriah argue, we learn more about the mysterious Swede. Growing up in countryside, Tor began training MMA when he was 16 years old. Back home he holds job at a university doing math research. Amazingly, he finds professional fighting more interesting. Chael calls Tor, “The most unassuming guy on our team.” Sonnen admits he has a lot of skill, but lacks a killer instinct at times.

Back at the house Josh Samman runs some extra training sessions in the backyard. Dylan Andrews says he avoids these additional sessions and Josh’s personality annoys him. Josh appears bossy and assumes he’s in a position to tell the guys what to do. Adam Cella doesn’t seem as critical of Samman’s actions, but shares an anecdote about how Josh couldn’t even let him cut an onion without trying to correct him.

After sharing tips on how to properly slice something of the Allium genus, Josh recounts an old leg injury. After the pain finally became too much for him, he went to the hospital. It was there he learned that he had torn his quad severely and was suffering from a blood clot that could possibly cost him his leg. Luckily, everything went according to plan. After the leg story, he goes though a series of humble brags about how he was always in gifted programs, but chooses to fight because it’s his “path to greatness.”


Uriah vs. Whoever:

We return to the TUF house for more Team Sonnen drama. When discussing possible matchups for the next round, Uriah calls out teammate Luke. Luke is shocked that Uriah would say such a thing aloud (and in front of him). Kevin Casey doesn’t like how this will affect the team and hurt morale. Uriah doesn’t seem to have any remorse and warns us to be careful because supposed friends will turn their backs on you at any moment. Let’s just hope there aren’t any spare axes lying around the house because Uriah might turn into Jack Torrance by the end of the season.

Looking for friendlier territory, Uriah sits with Team Jones...and makes some more enemies. Showing his short fuse, Uriah makes an off-color remark about Adam Cella and his girlfriend and further alienates himself from the house. Collin Hart calls him a “loose cannon.” The next morning Bubba tries to talk with Uriah about it and doesn’t really get anywhere. Uriah tells us, “I’d rather talk with my fists,” and says he'll just go it alone.

What’s the best way to cut tension? That’s right, bowling! The entire crew heads to the Red Rock Casino and Resort for a night of 10-pin bowling and UFC fights. Chael Sonnen interrupts a Jon Jones interview and challenges him to a three-frame bowl-off. The loser has to train the next day in the opposing team’s jersey. Falling short by only two pins, Jon Jones will have to represent the Team Dark Side colors.

At weigh-in, Adam Cella delivers the best line of the episode by saying, “Josh is Josh’s biggest fan.” Luke has some more positive words for his teammate Tor and calls him a “silent killer.” As it leads up to fight day, Josh says that he’ll push the pace and that Tor can’t compete with his cardio.


Fight Time:

Josh opens the first round with strong low kicks. He then rushes Tor and creates a tie-up. They battle inside the clinch and reverse positions a number of times. They briefly break, Tor lands a strong uppercut and they’re back in the tie-up. Josh attempts a judo throw, but Tor winds up on top and the Swede gets in a few strong punches. Josh is able to get Tor off balance with a sweep attempt and uses that opening to return to his feet. On the feet, Josh lands a big knee to the body that forces Tor to break the clinch. Josh doesn’t let him recover, though. He lands a body kick and follows through with a crisp 1-2 combo and earns the first-round TKO.

There are a variety of reactions to the Josh’s win. Jon Jones praises Josh for taking control right away, and Chael Sonnen criticizes Tor for lacking a sense of urgency. Josh tells us, “I’m very happy with myself.” Shocking, right? He also proclaims himself the #1 seed in the house with his performance. On the confessional cam, Uriah Hall finally shows his more diplomatic side by saying, “Josh is like that guy in a movie that you see and you just want him to get his ass kicked.”

As we ponder that statement, Coach Jones makes the next fight announcement: Clint Hester vs. Jimmy Quinlan. Chael is completely confused by the pick and says that it couldn’t be a worse stylistic matchup for Team Jones' Clint.

We end on that note as we see a sneak peek into next week’s episode. Why is Josh Samman in the emergency room? Has Jon Jones made another tactical error? What happens when you unleash the TUF cast into a Hooters?

The Ultimate Fighter 17 - Episode 7 Results:


Courtesy: Dan Downes, UFC.com


Our episode starts inside the Team Jones locker room, where spirits are high after Josh Samman’s big win. Bubba’s shot at the wildcard spot is brought up again, but Bubba’s trying to not to get his hopes up, worried that another guy on the team could snatch it away from him. Despite their recent loss, Team Sonnen’s mood still rides high. Everyone on that team is confident about the upcoming fight between Jimmy Quinlan and Clint Hester. Jimmy even says that Clint was his first choice for opponents.

There’s a quick change of pace and we see Hooters (the restaurant that is). Like a child at Disneyland, there’s no way MMA fighters enjoying wings and waitresses in tight tank tops could have a bad time, right? Wrong. Despite Gilbert Smith’s best attempts at entertainment, Uriah Hall will have none of it. As everyone gathers for a group picture with the Hooters girls, TUF’s most dangerous man refuses to participate. He sits at a table alone and ignores the repeated requests to join. Collin Hart accuses Uriah of being self-righteous and calls him “a jerk.” This just proves that the only thing more vicious than Hart’s hands are his insults.

Back at the house Josh Samman’s left leg is giving him trouble. While most fighters would probably try to “tough it out,” Samman knows better. Remembering a torn muscle and blood clot that almost cost him is entire leg (which he recounted last week) he starts to worry. Not willing to risk things this time around, he goes to the Emergency Room to make sure he doesn’t have another blood clot. As he nervously waits, the doctor comes into the room and delivers some good news -- the test results have come back negative.


Training Time:

Cut to Team Sonnen’s practice session and we learn more about Jimmy Quinlan’s life growing up in a small town in Massachusettes and his career as a police officer. Coach Sonnen again raises questions on the matchup choice. He can’t believe that Jon Jones choose Jimmy as Clint Hester’s opponent. He adds, “If Jimmy gets any opponent on the ground, he’s a big problem.” Chael them gives the team a pep talk, “because I need them to know I care.”

We transition to Team Jones’ training session and hear the Clint Hester story. Growing up outside of Atlanta, he was the gentle giant who protected other kids who were picked on by bullies. I think we all wish we had a guy like Clint in our group during those awkward teenage years. Initially a boxer, his gym closed down. Unable to find a viable replacement, he found an MMA gym and decided to change combat sports.

Coach Jones works on Clint’s striking with him, emphasizing some lateral strikes to the legs. He’s a big fan of Clint’s striking ability as well as Hester’s ability to implement the techniques he’s shown right away. On the downside, though, Bones worries about Clint winding up on his back during the the fight and adds, “I think he needs a little more cardio.”

As we go through the weigh-in and more fight preparations, other housemates offer their opinions. Dylan Andrews says, “Jimmy’s never been in the cage with an animal like Clint.” Uriah Hall sets the stage for the next edition of Man vs. Beast when he remarks, “Jimmy could take down a horse.” We also see Clint and Jimmy interacting in the house on fight day. They joke around a little bit, and Clint calls his opponent “unreadable.” Jimmy doesn’t say much about Clint, but feels compelled to share the specifics of his breakfast. (For those interested, it’s six hard boiled eggs, oatmeal and coffee. We never find out whether he buys organic eggs because it’s fight time.)


Fight Time:

As the opening bell rings, Jimmy wastes no time going in for the takedown. Clint stops it initially, but Jimmy powers through and slams him down. Jimmy moves to side mount, but Clint soon escapes and climbs to his feet. They two clinch against the cage and Jimmy scores another quick takedown, but he’s again unable to hold Clint. Back on his feet, Clint attempts a guillotine choke. He doesn’t earn the submission, but uses the choke to force Jimmy against the cage, where he throws some knees and punches. These strikes find their mark and give Jimmy some added impetus to bring the fight back to the mat. Clint fights off the takedown attempt for a while (delivering some hard body punches in the meantime), but Jimmy is relentless. He continually puts Clint on the mat and the round ends with Jimmy Quinlan in the dominant position.

The second round begins with Clint bizarrely attempting a takedown of his own. He doesn’t come close and even exposes his neck for a guillotine attempt. Clint pulls his head out, but it’s all the opening Jimmy needs to bring things back to the mat. This time Jimmy finally advances his position, briefly takes Clint’s back and soon transitions to full mount. Clint exposes his back again, and this time Jimmy stays put. He throws some punches to loosen Clint up, locks in the rear-naked choke and secures the submission victory.

In the locker room aftermath, Jimmy looks like he barely has scratch. He informs the other guys that looks can be deceiving and that he feels bruises all over his head. Other than a couple bumps, he’s excited to say that he took down the #1 pick. Meanwhile on the Team Jones side, Clint hopes that he’ll be able to lock up that wildcard spot. Also, Chael Sonnen thinks now is the appropriate time to remind Jon Jones about their bowling bet from last week and gives Jon a Team Sonnen jersey to wear. The champ is none too amused. The coaches have been fairly polite so far this season, but is that going to end?

It’s time for the fight announcement and by default (as Chael puts it) it will be Dylan Andrews and Zak Cummings. Most people remember Dylan as the last person chosen, but Zak knows him as “the nicest guy I’ve ever met.”

The episode ends with a sneak peek into next week. Who wins the coaches challenge? What’s Dana White’s surprise? Does Uriah Hall make an “I’m sorry” macaroni heart to apologize to the entire house? Find out this and more on The Ultimate Fighter!

The Ultimate Fighter 17 - Episode 8 Results:


Courtesy: Dan Downes, UFC.com


The episode opens again with Bubba and his wildcard hopes at the fore. Adam Cella tells us that Bubba deserves a UFC contract more than anyone else in the house, “because he works harder than everyone.” As Adam Cella worries about Bubba, we cut to the Team Jones training session as Dylan Andrews prepares for his fight against Zak Cummings. The coaching staff teaches Dylan some blocks and Jon Jones says that his last pick will “have his hands full.”

In addition to hearing his coach’s not-so-ringing endorsement, we learn more about Dylan. Raised in a marijuana grow house, Dylan’s career got its start in a video rental store (remember those?). While picking up some UFC DVDs, he heard lots of stomping coming from the ceiling. When he went outside, he discovered that there was an MMA gym above the store. The rest is history. (Kind of like that whole video store thing.)

More surprising than people renting DVDs is the fact that Uriah Hall has a conversation with someone that doesn’t end with him pissing someone off. They discuss the fact that they hate fighting and all that goes along with the career. Why do they do it? The answer is simply because they’re good at it.

On the Team Sonnen side, Zak Cummings informs us that, “People thought I was too smart to fight.” Sure it sounds kind of conceited, but he says it in such a likable manner that it’s hard to hold it against him. Chael Sonnen believes in Zak, “but he’s a huge question mark.” So in other words, he doesn’t really believe in him. Regardless of Chael’s opinion, Cummings can at least be proud of the fact that he finally made it into the TUF house on his 7th attempt.

Next it’s time for the coaches challenge. In seasons past, the challenge has been some type of physical contest -- remember when we saw Roy Nelson "run" 400 meters?! This season, though, the coaches use giant excavation machines to fill a dumpster with dirt, build a tire pyramid and strategically place a basketball. Chael runs out to an early lead but struggles with the tire stacking. Bones gains on him and even moves ahead, but the basketball proves to be his undoing and man from the mean streets of West Linn, Oregon takes the $10,000 prize. This construction contest takes us to the final prelim fight of the season.


Fight Time:

The first round begins with the two trading jabs. Zak throws a low kick, then uses that to transition to a single-leg attempt. Dylan defends and the two break their tie-up. Zak starts to get the better of the punching exchanges, forcing Dylan to attempt a takedown of his own. Zak sprawls, puts Dylan on his back and works on some submissions. After throwing up unsuccessful D'arce and baseball bat chokes, Zak decides to start using his fists. After his punches and elbows soften Dylan up, he moves to mount. Dylan Andrews is able to sweep from this position, but he’s been opened up. Inside the guard, Dylan rains down punches and the round ends with Zak covered up, trying to protect.

Round two opens with Zak throwing a nifty (read: worthless) spin kick. The two have a laugh, high five and then get back to business. Zak catches Dylan with some punches, but then foolishly rushes in and winds up on his back. Now it’s Dylan’s turn for some ground-and-pound of his own, which comes in the form of elbows. Zak holds on tight but doesn’t appear to try to escape. Dylan continues to throw punches and elbows and Zak appears to be completely stifled. This continues the entire length of the round, until ZAK THROWS A DESPERATION KIMURA! It goes nowhere, though, and Dylan wins the unanimous decision.

From that fight we go straight to the wildcard fight pic. This season, Dana decides to let the coaches pick it. Chael doesn’t even think twice. He says he’s taking Kevin Casey easily. Jon Jones has a bit more of difficulty. On one hand he has his teammate at Greg Jackson’s camp -- Bubba McDaniel. On the other hand, there’s Clint Hester -- his #1 pick. In the end, Jones goes with Bubba.

The episode closes with a sneak peek into next week’s episode. Does Bubba get his redemption? Will Kevin Casey make his coach proud? Who steals the Thanksgiving turkey leg? Find out this and more next week on The Ultimate Fighter!


Season at a glance:

Team Sonnen (4-3):

The Ultimate Fighter 17 - Episode 9 Results:



Courtesy: Dan Downes, UFC.com



The episode opens up at the house with Kevin Casey and Bubba McDaniel talking about second chances. Kevin realizes that you’re only as good as your last fight and sees the wildcard fight as a way for him to prove himself as a competitor. He wants to emphasize that he didn’t get the opportunity because he’s a nice guy -- he deserves to be there.

Bubba has a more emotional reaction and thinks about his family. When he’s not stuck inside the TUF house, Bubba trains at the Greg Jackson camp in Albuquerque while his kids live in Texas. He starts to tear up discussing the difficult phone calls he has with his daughter Emma. She asks him, “Daddy are you coming to see me?” and he can’t afford to do so. Not only does he need TUF to legitimize all the troubles he’s put his family though, but he needs the money so he can visit more often and “be the dad I want to be.”

All this starts to weigh on Bubba and he’s feeling the pressure. The Team Jones coaches recognize this and give him a pep talk. They lesson they keep driving home is that Bubba must be aggressive to win this fight. He can’t backpedal like he did against Kelvin Gastelum and expect to win. Jon Jones implores Bubba to “show everyone in the house that you’re a great kickboxer.”

Back from the commercial break, Gil asks Kevin if the fact that Bubba called him out earlier motivates him any more. Kevin doesn’t seem to pay much attention to it and says that he wants to win just for the sake of winning. It then dawns on Josh Samman that Bubba’s challenge to Kevin was the only one there’s been all season. He uses that fact to transition to what must be the most half-hearted challenge in TUF history, calling out Jimmy (sounds to me like someone is selling wolf tickets). Jimmy just shrugs, says ok and gets back to more important things (namely, his cereal). When pressed to give a reaction, he informs us that, “I want to fight Josh Samman because I am an expert fisherman." We cut to Uriah Hall who halts the pun train by saying he wants to fight Josh so he can “beat his ass.” It appears that homonyms aren’t Hall’s strong suit.

At the Team Sonnen training session, the coaches, Hall and Jimmy Quinlan continue the quarterfinal matchup discussion. After some not-very-intense debate, it looks like Uriah has dibs on Josh. Looking at the upcoming fight between Casey and McDaniel, Chael talks about the stakes. More than simply winning the fight, Chael tells us we have to see real Kevin Casey this fight. Kevin was so flat in his lat one that he has to go out big now to prove that he’s the caliber of fighter who can compete at the next level.

Kevin’s gameplan mirrors Bubba’s in a lot of ways. He, too, looks to be aggressive and overwhelm Bubba. At the same time, he’s cognizant of the cut that remains on his forehead. While it may be a source of stress, at least he gets to train in a cool fencing helmet.

Back at the house it’s Thanksgiving. The New Zealander Dylan Andrews gets to celebrate his first Thanksgiving slightly differently from how the Pilgrims spent theirs. During the meal, Chael Sonnen overcomes his normal glossophobia and gives a speech. He expresses his desire for all the guys in the house to become UFC fighters and laments the fact that he discovered that Jon Jones is actually a decent person this season. Jon Jones is not swayed by Chael’s platitudes and say, “it doesn’t change anything.” Bubba angrily stares on the sidelines, upset that he’s cutting weight. In the car, Josh Samman tries to pawn off Uriah Hall on Collin Hart. We have weigh-ins, some predictions and then it’s time for the ultimate Thanksgiving tradition -- a fistfight.


FIGHT TIME:

The two engage immediately. After a couple strikes, Kevin Casey pulls guard. Bubba pushes Kevin toward the fence and leverages him against it. The two stand and clinch up. Kevin scores an outside trip from that position and plants Bubba on his back. Working from half guard, Kevin tries to pass, but is initially shut down. He keeps going and eventually moves to side mount. Bubba regains his guard and throws up a triangle attempt that gets easily brushed away. Kevin moves back to side mount and smothers his opponent. Bubba returns to his feet, but Kevin doesn’t give him any time to breath. As the two tie up, Bubba lands some ineffectual knees and can’t seem to break the lock. With just over 20 seconds left, Kevin scores a belly to belly takedown and the round ends with Bubba on his back with a blank stare on his face.

The second round begins with Bubba scoring a strong low kick. Kevin walks right through it and ties up. Bubba decides to clinch fight Kevin despite his corner continually yelling at him to separate. Kevin tries to pull guard again, but fails this time around. Bubba immediately moves to side mount and starts dropping some elbows. Kevin regains his guard, but can’t seem to generate any type of offense. Bubba throws another hard elbow that knocks out Kevin’s mouthguard. As Kevin seems content to hold on, Bubba continues to drop short elbows and punches. Bubba attacks the body and then uses the opening to throw elbows to try to open up that cut again. This pattern continues for the rest of the round until it ends. Kevin Casey looks in a bad place and actually has to get pulled up off the mat to make it to his corner.

The judges have it tied and we’re going to a third round... nope wait, we're not. Kevin Casey has had enough and, in a TUF first, doesn’t answer the bell for the third round. Bubba does some posturing in the cage, and then the accountant in the back of his head pipes up and he asks Dana White if it counts as a finish. Dana says sure and Bubba is now $5000 richer.

Coach Jones explain that Bubba was motivated when someone in the Team Sonnen peanut gallery yelled out that he was breaking during the fight. After hearing that, in the words of Jon Jones, "Bubba just dominated him... to the point where Kevin gave up. I don't think I've ever seen that in a fight."

Coach Sonnen is equally stunned: "I was very concerned because Kevin shut down. He was different. I could see that we just weren't there anymore. This was new to me." Back in the locker room, Kevin collapses and tells us about how a similar situation occurred in 2010 when his kidneys failed in a fight.

Time for the quarterfinal match ups and Dana calls in the remaining eight fighters and the coaches to hear what fights they want. No real surprises here and they come out and announce the quarterfinal bracket:


Collin Hart vs Kelvin Gastelum
Dylan Andrews vs Luke Barnatt
Josh Samman vs Jimmy Quinlan
Bubba McDaniel vs Uriah Hall



Team Sonnen (4-4):

Luke Barnatt (1-0, TKO win over Gilbert Smith in episode 2)

Clint Hester (0-1, submitted by Jimmy Quinlan in episode 7)
Josh Samman (1-0, TKO win over Tor Troeng in episode 6)

Collin Hart (1-0, defeated Kevin Casey by UD in episode 4)
Adam Cella (0-1, KO'd by Uriah Hall in episode 3)

The series resumes next Tuesday, March 26, on FX at 9 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings for Central and Mountain Time). In that episode – “The Quarterfinals Begin” – A fighter gets a surprise visit from world champion Ronda Rousey as he prepares for his quarterfinal showdown. Then, with boxing legend Mike Tyson in attendance, Hart faces-off against Gastelum and Andrews meets Barnatt, trying to secure a spot in the final four.
