Hopkinsville, Kentucky

Fort Campbell


Dennis Bermudez fell short on becoming the featherweight Ultimate Fighter winner, following a first round submission loss to Diego Brandao in the show’s finale, but has since rattled off four-straight wins in the UFC. Notable victories include a first round submission win over Tommy Hayden, earning him “Submission of the Night” honors, and a split decision victory over Matt Grice which is the current front runner for “Fight of the Year”.

Nick Lentz earned his third straight victory in the UFC following a unanimous decision win over highly-touted Brazilian featherweight, Hacran Dias at UFC on FX 8. Lentz has quietly gone an impressive 8-2-1 during his time in the UFC, and a couple more wins will surely put him in title consideration.

Ultimate Fighter 15 winner, Michael Chiesa took a big step up in competition at UFC on FOX 8, taking on former Strikeforce title challenger Jorge Masvidal, but was submitted in the second round. The loss ended a nine-fight win streak to begin his mixed martial arts career, which included UFC victories over Al Iaquinta and Anton Kuivanen.

Colton Smith flew under everyone’s radar to win the sixteenth season of the Ultimate Fighter after he defeated Mike Ricci unanimous decision in the show’s live finale. In his sophomore appearance, things didn’t go quite as well for him against TUF: Smashes winner, Robert Whittaker, who battered Smith until the stoppage finally came in the third round at UFC 160.
