Welcome to The TUF Road a recap of the fights that take place inside and outside the octagon on the Ultimate Fighter. There was a little bit of squabbling on Team Cruz as he tried to convince Sam Sicillia to give information out on Mike Chiesa, they are training partners outside of TUF, and Mike is taking on Cruz’s other fighter Jeremy Larsen. Sicillia does not budge though not wanting to break the friendship he has with Chiesa outside of the TUF house. For the remainder of the show is filled with more drama from Chris Tickle and his mystery ailments, and then back grounds for the fighters involved in the upcoming fight.
Mike Chiesa(Team Faber) vs. Jeremy Larsen(Team Cruz)
Round 1: Chiesa shoots for a takedown immediately and slams Larsen to the ground. Chiesa throws multiple elbows, but Larsen gets back up. For his effort he is slammed back down again, then he stands back up but is caught with an illegal knee. No point is taken and the round expires.
Round 2: Larsen does a better job of defending takedowns and is able to win a few exchanges. Chiesa wins on pure aggression keeping Larsen off balance and not letting him open up his offense too much.
Result: Mike Chiesa defeats Jeremy Larsen by unaimous decision
The show has been brought to an even 2-2 with the teams tied. Next week match will be Team Faber’s Joe Proctor taking on Team Cruz’s Chris Tickle.
