Fan Take: Make your prediction now, who will win The Ultimate Fighter 17?

This season on “The Ultimate Fighter,” Jon “bones” Jones is coaching opposite of Chael Sonnen. The season is off to a great start and I think the new changes have made TUF great again. The second episode of this season’s Ultimate Fighter is now over and Chael Sonnen’s team is up 1-0.

In the first fight we saw Luke Barnatt use his size, reach and cardio advantage as he defeated Gilbert Smith via KO (flying knee) in round 2. Barnatt advances in the tournament but with the “wildcard” pick in play again this season Smith still has a chance.

It’s only the beginning of the season but we have been able to see all the fighters compete at this point. All 14 middleweights fought and won to get their guaranteed spot in the house. Now is the time to make your early predictions so you can say in the end, “I called it from the start.” Who do you think will be this years “Ultimate Fighter?”

Both coaches have said they think the guy at the top of the food chain this year is Urijah Hall. I have to agree, and I have to pick him as my guy to take it this season. I know I’m not going out on a limb with that pick, but come on; even the guy coaching against him (Jon Jones) said he was one of the best guys in the competition.

But this isn’t about what I think or what the coaches think. It’s about you guys, what do you think? Who are you taking this season to win it all? Let us know sharing your comments here at

  3. car dee oh says:

    Luke Barnatt for obvious reasons or Uriah Hall

  4. Sam says:

    Thor The Hammer!! Swedish steeeeeel!!!!

  5. Hookstar says:

    Im gonna go ahead and say whoever gets the KO tonight.. a White interview said someone in the house is a beast and everytime he fights he puts someone in the hospital..and one kid had a nervous breakdown in the house… I would assume the winner of tonight is just that individual.

  6. Ainokea says:

    I want Urijah Hall, or Possibly Thor, but on the commercial last week for tonight’s epdisode, it showed a team Sonnen jersey by the ambulance. Plus Adam Cella just blogged about the KO happening tonight. I know I wouldn’t brag about getting ass kicked or getting what White says the worst KO in fight history. I just hope they’re tricking us.

    THOR… the Swede will dominate!

  8. sanchez says:

    dolph ziggler cashes in money in the bank and wins it all

  9. Saxs says:

    Uriah Hall dude is nasty.

  10. NEB_ONE says:

    Uriah Hall hands down, they said last week that this week will have had the craziest knock-out Dana White has ever seen, in the UFC yet alone the Ultimate Fighter!! I cant see that Jones pick, get past Sonnens pick (Uriah Hall).. Cant wait to see that knock out!!

  11. David "The Game" Pratt says:

    Dylan The Villian Andrews is the dark horse, backing him to take it out!

  12. junior merkle says:

    kevin casey will win for sure.

  13. thor heyerdahl says:


  14. david says:

    Uriah Hall or Clint Hester!!!!!
