In last week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen, Team Jones got their first win of the season and gained matchmaking control. Coach Jon Jones picked the most seasoned fighter in the house, Bubba McDaniel, to take on the youngest contestant in The Ultimate Fighter history, 21-year old Kelvin Gastelum.

Nice grappling match but the lack of gnp was lost on me. Bubba seems like a head case. He sitting there in side control with every chance to throw elobows he decides its better to get swept? That was a strange fight.

good fight. bubba needs to work on his wrestling and top control. he never could seem to keep kelvin down. i think Hall will destroy kelvin if they do meet later on.
