In the last episode of the Ultimate Fighter, Team Claudia’s Tatiana Suarez defeated Team Joanna’s JJ Aldrich via rear-naked choke in the second round. Catch up with all the action from that episode here.
This episode features a featured Light Heavyweight Bout between Team Claudia’s Andrew Sanchez will take on Team Joanna’s Myron Dennis.
Sanchez shoots early and lands with ease. This was his gameplan from the beginning and so far it’s working wonderfully. Dennis has attempted a few escapes but Sanchez is completely smothering him through the first two minutes, controlling posture and landing some heavy ground and pound. Dennis nearly gains some separation but to no avail. This was basically an entire round of dominant top game. It should easily be scored a 10-9, if not a 10-8 in favor of Sanchez.
MMA Mad scores the first round 10-9 Sanchez.
An early takedown attempt is stuffed by Dennis and we get to see some of Sanchez’s striking game. He’s landing clean and each punch is met with a smile from Dennis. A single leg around the three minute mark lands and Sanchez is again on top and in full control of this fight. A flurry of up-kicks from Dennis is the most offense we’ve seen from him so far. With a minute left, things return to the feet, but it isn’t long before Sanchez secures another takedown as well.
MMA Mad scores the round 10-9 Sanchez.
Official Result – Andrew Sanchez def. Myron Dennis via unanimous decision.
Next week, we’ve got our next strawweight matchup. We will have Team Claudia’s Lanchana Green vs. Team Joanna’s Helen Harper.
