TUF 17 episode 10 fight recaps

 

TEAM JONES' COLIN HART (4-1-1) VS. TEAM SONNEN'S KELVIN GASTELUM (4-0)

Round 1 - Referee Steve Mazzagatti in charge. Both fighters are busy with their hands early, and it's a solid back-and-forth pace to open. In a flurry, Kelvin scores with a combination that buckles Colin's legs. He falls to the canvas and continues to fight despite his head slamming into the mat, but Kelvin pounces until he's pulled off with an impressive TKO win.

Kelvin Gastelum def. Colin Hart via TKO (punches) - Round 1

TEAM JONES' DYLAN ANDREWS (15-4) VS. TEAM SONNEN'S LUKE BARNATT (5-0)

Round 1 - Referee Herb Dean oversees the fight. Dylan lands two crisp right hands and scores a takedown. Luke is very active from his back and looks for options. Dylan heavy on top and prevents his opponent from rising. Luke turns twice for an armbar that won't come, but he's keeping Dylan busy with an active guard. Dylan backs away and allows Luke to stand. As soon as he does, Dylan pushes forward and latches the neck. He lets go of a guillotine in favor of moving to the back. Luke defends well and eventually crawls back to his feet and breaks free before unleashing some nasty knees and kicks. Dylan drives in for another takedown and tries to lace in a few punches before the bell. Luke again busy, but he can't secure anything before the bell.

Round 2 - Luke works his jab from length to open, but Dylan tees off with counter shots to the chin and body. Dylan drives on for a takedown that won't come, as Luke shows nice defense agains the cage and actually falls to mount on a scramble. Dylan reverses the position in a nifty sweep, but he struggles to get through his opponent's long legs. Dylan backs away top reset and again attacks as Luke moves to his feet. He scores another takedown and continues to work from top position. Luke works in a few short elbows from the bottom, but he seems to have tired a bit. Dylan continues to press for offense from the top, but Luke defends himself well underneath. The round ends in a transition, as Dylan moves to the back and nearly secures the neck. Jon seems to think Dylan did enough to win, but judges disagree and send the fight to a third round. UFC President Dana White actually calls it "great judging."

Round 3 - The pair moves quickly into a clinch, where Luke capitalizes with knees. Dylan backs away and scores with heavy punches. It's an entertaining slugfest. Both look a little tired, but they wing punches, elbows and knees. Both are scoring, though Dylan eventually gets the best of the exchanges and blasts away with heavy shots to the chin. Luke tries to return fire, but he's lit up by Dylan and crumples to the floor on the strength of several heavy right hands. Dylan pounces with hammerfists to seal the deal.

Dylan Andrews def. Luke Barnatt via TKO (strikes) - Round 3.

Couldn't agree more man, I thought he was a sleeper since the first episode and he has just got stronger and stronger. Would be so happy for him to win. He is young, likable and a beast.WIN IT KELVIN!

Mark Hunt, James TeHuna & Dylan Andrews all call NZ home mate. The reason they're living in aussie is because NZ doesn't have the MMA training facilities & quality MMA training partners that Australia has. EVERY sport in NZ takes a backstep to rugby, and currently MMA isn't very big here. NZ also doesn't have a single major promotion for MMA so it makes sense to go live & train in aussie if you want to make it in the sport.It's pretty funny that all the top "Australian" mma fighters were all born in New Zealand lol.

Why would Herb have stood them up? Luke was working - quite effectively, I thought - from the bottom. No need to punish a guy that's actively striking and hunting for subs.

Just watched for the first time this season. Man i kept screaming at the tv for that shit to be stood up in the first. I despise seeing that lay and pray shit he was pulling, was happy to see it go to a 3rd round at least.

I thought the wrestling in round 1 really took the wind out of Dylan's sails. He look exhausted early in round 2 and I didn't think he was going to make it to the bell until he nailed Luke with that bomb. Then, in round 3, I didn't think that he'd have anything left, but he gutted it out and was throwing them bungalows. He totally surprised me, awesome fight.Ready for next week!

True but it's also the look of a man who walked into the house thinking who was he going to challenge in the final only to find himself seconds away from losing to the least rated fighter of the group.I hope he has a plan b in respect to career options.

The look on his face was priceless. It looked like he was thinking 'Oh shit...am I really getting choked?!?!'

It's been an outstanding TUF series so far and without a shadow of doubt in my mind one of the greatest highlights was and will be the close up of Bubbas face when he was slowly being choked to the point where he realises he has to tap !if anyone of you boys can knock up a gif it would be greatly appreciated..........
