Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video Preview: Shit Is Going to Get Violent on Tonight’s Episode of ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ But Will You Be Watching?

As one could tell from the opening moments of The Ultimate Fighter 17 premiere a couple weeks back, some drastic improvements have been made to the long neglected reality show. The sleek production, the lack of fabricated drama, the fight quality — nearly everything audiences were demanding over the past few seasons seems to have improved for the time being and has been reflected in the show’s much improved ratings.

And tonight’s episode, featuring a showdown between the highly touted Uriah Hall (Team Sonnen) and the all but completely overlooked Adam Cella (Team Jones), promises to deliver not only one of the most violent KO’s in the show’s history, but in the history of the sport. That is according to noted TUF hypeman and occasional UFC president Dana White, of course.

So in order to do a little TUF-hyping of our own (I know right? WHAT YEAR IS THIS?!), we’ve thrown a preview of tonight’s episode above for you all to check out. And indeed, if the audience’s reaction is any indication, then someone is going down in a big way during the night’s main event. Unfortunately for you spoilerphobes, if you freeze frame the video around the 45 second mark, you can see that the fighter strapped to the stretcher appears to be of the African American persuasion. A bit of intentional misleading by the TUF production team, or a massive upset in the making? And more importantly, how many of you Taters will be tuning in to find out?

After the jump: A little more video hype, featuring a sneak peak of Ronda Rousey’s special on Real Sports, which airs February 19th on HBO. Liz Carmouche’s special, on the other hand, will be airing tonight on Lifetime After Dark in the form of a 30-second trailer during the network’s coveted 3 a.m. spot. We kid, we kid; Liz didn’t get a special.

I have been thinking that one of these little white guys is the sleeper. I hope it is Adam, that would make for some good tv! I hope to be watching tonight.

Could always just watch it instead of these shit guesses?

Except sonnen running in could be from another fight and is just edited to fool us into thinking it's from this fight. Same with the ambulance.

I was going to say this.

When I freeze the video the guy getting put into the ambulance has facial hair. It looks like it is Kevin Casey or maybe even Clint Hester. If you watch the highlight of Uriah fighting Adam they show Uriah to be clean shaven.
So, yeah, just some good editing moves to keep us guessing.

If you watch the previews for this episode, when (we assume) the big KO happens, you see Sonnen BOLT into the cage, leading one to assume that it's one of his guys who got KTFO. Hall is on Team Sonnen. So yea, my guess is Hall get's KO'd BIG TIME... we'll see...

It is a team So-nin coach standing outside the ambulance though when the guy gets loaded inside.
