TUF 19, Episode 5 fight recap

 

The fourth episode of the nineteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter aired May 14th at 10:00 PM EST and featured a bout between Corey Anderson and Josh Clarke.

TEAM PENN’S JOSH CLARK (5-1) VS. TEAM EDGAR’S CORY ANDERSON (3-0)

Round 1 – Clark opens with an overhand right, and he keeps active with his jab as Anderson stays patient. Anderson counters with a straight right. Clark lands an overhand in response, but Anderson shoots in on a single-leg takedown and briefly takes down his opponent. Clark gets back up, and Anderson presses him against the cage. Anderson gets another takedown, but Clark again manages to get back up. As they restart, Anderson is hesitant to commit to his strikes and is eating counter shots. He then shoots for a takedown against the cage and slams Clark to the ground. Anderson advances to the crucifix position, but he can’t keep it. Clark recovers to guard and rolls for a leg lock. Anderson defends well, and Clark manages to scramble back to his feet. After a brief striking exchange, Anderson scores his third takedown of the round and closes by throwing punches from half guard.

Round 2 – Anderson fails on an early takedown attempt, and Clark then lands a hard right hand followed by a knee. Anderson shakes it off and scores his first takedown of the second round and fourth of the fight overall. He then attempts to create separation for ground-and-pound, but Clark does a good job of tying him up. Clark tries to roll for an armbar from the bottom, but Anderson displays strong defense. The referee eventually calls for a standup. Clark rushes inside and lands an uppercut. Clark slips on a leg kick, and Anderson capitalizes by jumping on top. Anderson works to advance but can’t pass Clark’s guard. Clark then rolls for another leg lock but can’t get it. Anderson moves to mount, and Clark gives up his back. He rolls over again, and the round ends with Anderson throwing powerful strikes from mount.

Next week's preview looks fun.  Dana losses it on both Mazzagattii and the judges.

^^exactly i dont see anyone especially from the light heavy division that stands out in any way, shape or fashion..the lighter guys dont seem to either.. i hate when they give away a future fights ending, in this case a controversial decision..now we know a KO or submission isnt going down..ive always hated when they show us any clips of the upcoming fights..theres no point..

Agreed, and I was seriously on the verge of checking out for the remainder of the season after tonight's fight. All those great coaches, but the guys in the house aren't that different from the casts from past seasons of TUF. There doesn't appear to be a lot of progression between say season 19 and season 8 (off the top of my head). Dana's weird subliminal commentary during the fight was creepy.

geez tonights fight was a dud...i thought Edgars guy would have had better takedowns given his wrestling credentials and i have to wonder why Team Penns fighter was even on the show..i mean, i respect all of these guys for fighting but his skillset is 'slugger', thats it..
