UFC TUF 26 Finale: Montaño vs. Modafferi



Evening everyone. Jody Jamieson here with the live blog for The Ultimate Fighter 26, where a new flyweight champion will be crowned to round out the latest TUF season. Here’s your card for tonight.

Prelims just wrapped up. Five fights and five finishes!

Gillian Robertson def. Emily Whitmire via submission (armbar) at 2:34 of Round 1.

Shana Dobson def. Ariel Beck via TKO (punch) at 2:53 of Round 2.

Rachael Ostovich-Berdon def. Karine Gevorgyan via submission (armbar) at 1:40 of Round 1.

Ryan Janes def. Andrew Sanchez via TKO (punches) at 0:59 of Round 3.

Montana De La Rosa def. Christina Marks via submission (armbar) at 2:00 of Round 1.

And that’s us caught up, just as the main card begins! Joe Soto vs. Brett Johns opens up the card. Soto was a former challenger for the bantamweight title. Welshman Johns, a good friend of ByTheMinute, looks to move to 15-0 with his third straight Octagon win.

Dan Hellie is calling the action tonight. I think he did the Contender Series, but I was watching SnoopCast. Daniel Cormier will be super excited in the analyst role.

Nevada still haven't adopted the new unified rules of MMA yet. Starting to really get on my nerves.
