Meet Martin Svensson, who never lost on 'TUF 22,' made weight but didn't fight at finale
History will remember grappling wizard Ryan Hall as the winner of “The Ultimate Fighter 22,” but there was only one fighter on that show that never lost a fight, and while he was in Las Vegas – and on weight – for the show’s live finale, he’ll have to wait until February to make his UFC debut. “It was bittersweet,” Martin Svensson told MMAjunkie. “You don’t ever really hope that anyone else gets injured or pulls out of their fights, and I never really did. But it was tricky. It was a fun experience, but at the same time it was very hard emotionally. It was a lot of ups and downs.” Svensson is a 30-year-old Swedish prospect who earned a spot on the recently aired “TUF 22” series, scoring a decision win over Mohamed Gabinski in the tournament’s preliminary round to earn his way into the “TUF” house. He then scored a second-round submission win over Thanh Le to set up a quarterfinal bout with eventual finalist Artem Lobov, who had lost in the preliminary round but was brought back into the field by his training partner and “TUF” coach Conor McGregor. Unfortunately, Svensson suffered a broken elbow in the Le fight and was forced to withdraw from the tournament.

Dan Miller, Darrell Montague among 13 fighters released from UFC
Normally at the beginning of each month, the UFC does a purge of its roster and releases several of its fighters (or at least updates its database to reflect that). So it is on this 1st of September that we find out more than a dozen competitors are evidently no longer with the promotion. UFCFIGHTERSiNFO runs a script (then publishes it on Twitter) scanning any changes to the roster, so while not official, this has historically proven to be accurate. The 13 released fighters are: Light Heavyweight: Hans Stringer Middleweight: Dan Miller, Ildemar Alcantara, Tom Watson Welterweight: Andrew Craig, Igor Araujo Lightweight: Anthony Christodoulou, Yosdenis Cedeno Featherweight: Niklas Backstrom, Aaron Phillips Bantamweight: Cody Gibson, Royston Wee Flyweight: Darrell Montague LINKALOON

It was Hayder Hassan’s idea to donate 'TUF 21' money to Wounded Warrior Project
On the 12th and final taped episode of “The Ultimate Fighter 21,” American Top Team head Dan Lambert announces his squad is donating $200,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project after winning the team vs. team reality show tournament against the Blackzilians. On the season finale of the show, which aired Wednesday night on FOX Sports 1, it looks as though Lambert is the one initiating the donation to the fund, which benefits wounded U.S. soldiers and is a cause long supported by the UFC. But Lambert said it was actually the idea of Hayder Hassan, who delivered the team its victory with a split-call over Blackzilians fighter Vicente Luque on Episode No. 12.
