FX Networks features The Ultimate Fighter Live tonight and is showcasing a great fight for the fans. Last week on TUF, Myles Jury for Team Cruz lost a closely contested game against Al Iaquinta for Team Faber. It was a lackluster performance compared to other fights that have been displayed this season, and Dana White and company hope things will pick back up with tonight’s episode.
Team Faber now has control of the fight picks and they have elected Michael Chiesa to take on Jeremy Larsen for Team Cruz. This fight has the makings to be an action-packed affair, and it will be interesting to see which style prevails come fight time. Earlier in this season, Chiesa received news that his father had passed away. This news was devastating and Chiesa elected to keep fighting on the show. This shows heart and courage that Chiesa truly has. He wants to seize his dreams on this season of The Ultimate Fighter and said it is something his father would have wanted, too.
Coming into this Ultimate Fighter episode, Michael Chiesa is undefeated with a record of 7-0. He is a dynamic grappler and has over 5 submissions on his resume. Look for him to take this fight to the ground early and utilize his grappling skills.
For Jeremy Larsen, he comes into this fight with a record of 8-2. He also has 3 submissions to his resume, and is coming into this fight slightly the underdog. Look for him to keep this fight standing in order to left something big early on.
