This Saturday the UFC is rolling into Nottingham England and bringing a solid card of local favorites and some surprisingly competitive match-making across the board at UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic. In this new segment, I'm going to be taking an in-depth look at the more interesting bouts of the evening so you can get a sneak peek of how these bouts should play out.
Earlier this month 12 of the 16 TUF Live fighters made their official UFC debuts at the season’s finale. The four that didn’t get their shot under the big lights were unable to fight on the card due to injuries sustained in the last few weeks of the season. One of the unlucky ones was Mike Rio.
Before TUF Live finalist Al Iaquinta even entered the Octagon against Michael Chiasa at tonight’s TUF Live Finale, the straight-faced lightweight walked away 50k richer. During the night’s preliminary card the UFC announced the TUF Live season awards, voted on by the fans.
The latest episode of TUF Live served up the second half of the quarterfinal round, as well as announced the new opponent for Urijah Faber at UFC 148. Thus far one fighter from each team has advanced into the semifinals as James Vick (Team Cruz) and Michael Chiesa (Team Faber) now await the other two semifinalists.
TUF Live has entered the quarterfinals and if the eight remaining fighters thought things were tough before, they haven’t seen anything yet. With just three episodes left before the TUF Live finale on June 1st, the lightweight that can win three fights over four consecutive weeks will become the next Ultimate Fighter.
