It was a big night in Vegas with several exhilarating fights and dynamic stoppages. We’ve got a new “Ultimate Fighter” with Kelvin Gastelum’s split decision win over Uriah Hall. Urijah Faber proved once again he can beat just about anyone not holding a title. Cat Zingano pulverized Miesha Tate to earn herself a title shot and a coaching spot on TUF 18, and Travis Browne tried to decapitate Gabriel Gonzaga with vicious elbows. Now tune in as the night’s stars share their thoughts on it all at the TUF 17 Finale post-fight press conference.
Middleweights Uriah Hall and Kelvin Gastelum will square off this evening for the title of “Ultimate Fighter” and a six-figure contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The two Team Sonnen finalists of The Ultimate Fighter season 17 had impressive showings on the UFC reality show on FX and tonight will get the chance to prove they belong in the big leagues.
