THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER FRIDAYS EPISODE 4 RECAP AND RESULTS | UFC NEWS


The Ultimate Fighter Fridays episode four – ‘Can’t fix stupid’ – aired on FX on Friday evening and saw Team Carwin take the lead in the competition.

Las Vegas native Bristol Marunde, 12-7 in his mixed martial arts career, defeated Julian “Night Train” Lane, 4-0, of Mansfield, Ohio by unanimous decision to see coach Shane Carwin’s squad go 2-1 in the season.

Experience proved to be the difference in the bout, which was recorded at the TUFTM Gym in Las Vegas. Marunde, 30, has been fighting professionally since 2007, working his way through regional MMA promotions before facing the highly-ranked Renaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza in the STRIKEFORCE® organization earlier this year.

Happy to make it to the second round, Marunde said: “I was relieved to get the first fight out of the way. I didn’t fight smart at all – I was trying to force a finish and suffered some pretty bad damage to my face as a result. It was worth it, though. Team Carwin was fired up to get a win and just as happy to have control of the fight pick again.”

Team Nelson’s final team pick, a father of a two-year-old daughter with another child on the way, was disappointed not to advance in the competition.

He said: “It was a tough fight, I wish I had pushed it harder to make it go to the sudden victory round. I wish I would have taken control and not backed-up. It was a hard loss. I don’t ever want to feel that way again. I’m going to use the pain I felt and grow from this experience.”

    The scale was off.

  2. We need more Hawaii fighters on this show, so far all the fights this season was nothing but jokes, wanna be’s… jus because you train, it does not mean you’re a fighter..We grow up fighting from elementary school, in the back roads barefooted and are always looking to either drop you or knock you out blow for blow…I don’t know what else to say but these fighters that are getting picked at the tryouts are softies, i see a lot of the roll through vegas and when they sparr, a lot of them are throwing punching or getting punched with their eyes closed like they never did hit or get hit before…Yea some funny shit man…
