The Ultimate Fighter 17 episode 2 recap: Barnatt vs. Smith

With Coach Chael Sonnen getting the privilege of picking the first fighter for his team in episode 1, Jones got the privilege of being able to pick the first fight.

To represent his team, Jones selects 30-year-old Gilbert Smith (5-1) of Colorado Springs, Colo. to take on 24-year-old Luke Barnatt (5-0) of Cambridge, England.

It’s a bit of an odd match-up and weird pick from Coach Jones because of the significant height advantage the 6-foot-4-inch Barnatt has over the 5-foot-9-inch Smith.
