‘The Ultimate Fighter 17: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen’ Episode 4 — Complete Video & Recap

(Props: ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ on Hulu)

With Team Sonnen up 2-0 following Uriah Hall‘s brutal knockout of Adam Cella, it’s time for Team Jones to shift the momentum before it gets out of hand — and it’s up to their #5 pick Collin Hart to save the day. Here are the brass tacks from last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen, which you can watch above in its entirety.

- Adam Cella returns to the TUF house, still wearing his hospital gown, and claims he has no memory of the fight. Nevertheless, he tracks Uriah Hall down in the shower and jokingly asks Hall why he hit him so hard. Hall still feels uncomfortable about the fact that he nearly ended Cella’s life. The fact that he’s naked while Cella is trying to have a conversation with him does nothing to alleviate the tension.

- Kevin Casey suffered a cut over his right eye during his elimination-round fight against Eldon Sproat, and says he chose to fight Collin Hart — a wrestler — because he runs a lower risk of getting the cut re-opened against Hart than he would against a talented striker, like Bubba McDaniel, for example. So yeah, in a way he is ducking Bubba, but it makes sense from a strategic standpoint. Unfortunately, Collin vows to elbow Kevin Casey’s face in.

- Gilbert Smith tries to start a rap-battle with Kevin Casey, and gets beat about as badly as Luke Barnatt beat him.

- There’s a power-outage, and a prank involving toilet paper. You don’t need to know details.

- Instead of shaking hands after the weigh-ins, Collin Hart sticks his middle finger in Kevin Casey’s face. The move doesn’t go over well with Team Sonnen. Collin’s only explanation is that you should respect his sleep. Uriah Hall tells Collin how disappointed he is. Uriah Hall is not the kind of dude you want to be disappointed with you.

- The fight isn’t exactly a barn-burner. Collin imposes his will immediately, scoring a takedown off the bell — off of a failed ninja-kick — then controlling Kevin on the mat and against the fence. Collin works some knee strikes from clinch, and Kevin is completely stymied in the first round aside from a few punches he lands during a brief separation in the closing seconds. Kevin tries to get aggressive at the beginning of the second round, rushing at Collin and throwing heavy punches, but Collin snatches him up after about 20 seconds and it’s back to Clinchville. Kevin’s cut opens up and Collin takes control again with his wrestling. Collin spends the remainder of the round on top, throwing down short strikes. All three judges call it 20-18 for Collin, who immediately heads for the treadmill to get a workout in.

- Team Jones regains control of the matchups, and select Bubba McDaniel to fight Team Sonnen’s last-pick Kelvin Gastelum. Jones acknowledges that Gastelum has better wrestling, but as Bones explains, “wrestling really doesn’t win fights.” Huh. So I guess we can expect Bubba’s game-plan to consist entirely of spinning back-elbows?

I wonder if Kevin Casey is going to give himself his own UFC championship belt to go with the black belt he gave himself?

Real talk: Is Bubba McDaniel the least likable TUF contestant ever?
J.Jones- February 13, 2013 at 1:51 pm
So I gotta be the guy that mentions Junie Browning and the "let me bang, bro" fellow, then? To be fair, I didn't watch enough of TUF 16 to learn anything about the latter, but I'll just assume that, based on his attitude/mohawk combo, he is a supreme douche.
El Famous Burrito- February 13, 2013 at 1:49 pm
Jamie Yager and Bruce Leroy also come to mind
ReX13- February 13, 2013 at 1:53 pm
Hating on Bruce Leroy? Whaaaaaaaaaaa
ReX13- February 13, 2013 at 1:21 pm
He's obnoxious, no doubt, but how soon we forget the douchecanoepilotry of Misters Koscheck and Southworth.

... but as Bones explains, “wrestling really doesn’t win fights.” He then went out to say wrestling shouldn't even be an Olympic sport. Little did he know...

That fight sucked. It probably would have been entertaining had they stood up and swung...but overall, boring.

Btw, I enjoy not looking at Jabba the Hut anymore...these other bitches are nice to look at

I hope Kevin Casey has a real day job. His rapping and fighting will not pay the bills. I loved it after the fight when Kevin said, "I was just waiting for Collin to gas out!" Bad game plan too.

Thx danomite, that had been bugging the shit out of me as well.
danomite- February 13, 2013 at 11:59 am
nevermind. I just found it. It wasn't $kala, it was that flesh beard kid from that mtv show.
danomite- February 13, 2013 at 11:56 am
Can someone please tell me if Kevin Casey was in some kind of rap video with $kala a few years ago? I thought he was but I couldn't find the video when I looked for it. It's been bugging me every time i see his name.

Maybe. He also has his own vid with a rough looking crew, including Spencer Pratt.
