Who gets hammered before coming to the UFC training center to watch two fighters try to fulfill their dreams of becoming a UFC fighter? Apparently TUF Live Fighter Chris Tickle does. After the Michael Chiesa vs. Jeremy Larson bout it was revealed by members of team Faber that Mr. Tickle got hammered prior to the fights and was still feeling it when team Cruz headed back to their dressing after the fight. Tickle began talking trash at his opponent disrupting the room which was trying to coup with the defeat.
Things get heated during team Cruz practice between Mike Rio and Justin Lawrence as the two were sparring. Rio didn’t like the spinning heel kick Lawrence threw and the two got in each other face before returning to sparring.
Quote of the episode:
“Only thing you can beat me in is a short contest,” delivered by Dominick Cruz to Urijah Faber outside the UFC training center
Fight time: Joe Proctor (Team Faber) vs. Chris Tickle (Team Cruz)
Like Team Faber practiced it, Tickle came out strong and found his range but Proctor weathered the storm early and scored a takedown late. Showing his superior ground skills, Proctor moved to the back of Tickle practically effortlessly and began fishing for the choke. At the 4:42 mark Proctor had the choke in deep and Tickle was forced to tap to the rear naked choke.
With the win Team Faber moves up 3-2 over Team Cruz.
Up next will be John Cofer (Team Faber) vs. Vinc Pichel (Team Cruz)
