TUF 17, Episode 6 Results: Team Jones regains control with TKO win | UFC NEWS
The Ultimate Fighter returned to FX on Tuesday night with the sixth episode of the season – “Path to Greatness”. In the evening’s preliminary matchup, Josh Samman capitalized on Tor Troeng’s relaxed fighting style, winning via knockout in the first round.

With the win, Team Jones climbs back to within one as Team Sonnen leads the preliminary fights 3-2.
