As The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption season comes to a close, there’s no better way to end than with some fireworks, right?
Well, the boys from the show didn’t fail to disappoint as the season is ready to crown a winner.
As James Krause and Jesse Taylor were preparing for their upcoming fight to decide who will fight Dhiego Lima on Friday at The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale, Krause’s friends Tim Elliot and Zak Cummings were able to spend some time at the TUF house before the fight. With the majority of the house eliminated from the competition, some of the guys were drinking and got a bit irritated that Elliot and Cummings were allowed to visit.
Things escalated as Seth Baczynski threw a water bottle at Krause and his friends sitting by a fire after some words were exchanged between the two sides. Krause and his friends then walked into the house only to be followed by Baczynski and Julian Lane who continued pressing the situation and got into a scuffle where pushes came to shoves and apparently a few punches were even thrown. Krause’s guests were eventually showed their way to the door but the drama didn’t end there.
Back in the house, Baczynski kept on questioning Krause on why his friends were able to come to their house as no other fighters were able to have guests over. As Baczynski got in Krause’s face the two exchanged a few pushes and shoves as Taylor did his best to stop the situation. Krause eventually went to his room where he was then able to focus on his upcoming fight with Taylor, which Taylor ended up winning by a guillotine choke submission.
