The Ultimate Fighter 17 Ep. 8 Recap and what Don Frye Thinks of Brock Lesnar
Don Frye wildly accused Brock Lesnar of having fixed fights in the UFC. Then he went on to call him a swear word and a waste of flesh. Frye finds it hard to believe that Lesnar is a better wrestler than Randy Couture and a better fighter than Frank Muir. What do you think? Did the UFC fix these fights to promote Brock Lesnar as their next big star?
The Ultimate Fighter 17, episode 8 had the final preliminary fight, the coaches challenge, and the wildcard pick. The final preliminary fight showcased Team Jones’ Dylan Andrews and Team Sonnen’s Zak Cummings. Andrews stood firm through the first two rounds and defeat Cummings via a majority decision. Next was the coaches’ challenge, where $10,000 was on the line in a Jon Jones- Chael Sonnen matchup.
However, no punches were thrown, but rather heavy machinery was used to complete a bevvy of challenges. Jon Jones got out to a steady lead as Chael Sonnen struggled to stack tires with the excavator. However, it would be Jones’ folly in the end that would allow Sonnen to come back and seal the victory. Finally, the wild card choices are announced as Chael Sonnen makes the easy pick of Kevin Casey, while Jon Jones struggles to choose between top pick Clint Hester and underdog Robert “Bubba” McDaniel.
