On last nights episode of the Ultimate Fighter on ESPN we had an incredible semi-final fight between Brad Katona and Timur Valiev.
I mean this would have been a great fight on a regular UFC PPV and we got to see it for free on the Ultimate Fighter. These guys traded blows for three rounds and it came down to the judges.
Honestly, I was shocked neither one of these guys got knocked out. There were some huge shots landed by both guys and any of them could have easily ended the fight.
If you didn’t watch this one go back and watch it on ESPN+ because it was an absolute war.
Brad Katona would get the win but man do not be surprised to see Timur get a UFC contract after his performances on the show.
Brad Katona will now await to see who he will be facing in the Bantamweight Final as it will be either Rico DiSciullo or Cody Gibson.
In the Lightweight division the final already has one man in with Austin Hubbard. He will take on the winner of next weeks episode between Kurt Holobaugh and Jason Knight.
The finals of the Ultimate fighter will more than likely take place at UFC 292 in Boston.
