19 Oct TUF 16: Episode 4 notes and results
Episode 4. October 5, 2012- Roy Nelson tells his team that they are going to draw straws to see who gets to fight next and pick their opponent. Julian Lane drew the shortest straw and elects to fight instead of passing to one of his teammates. Nelson is allowing Lane to pick his opponent. Lane says he wants to fight Matt Secor, Mike Ricci or Bristol Marunde.
Dana White brings the coaches and the fighters to see a movie premiere for “Here Comes The Boom,” starring Kevin James.
Julian Lane is shown training and Roy Nelson says his cardio is his weakness. Lane refuses to do a third round of training and hopes to finish the fight in the first round.
Roy Nelson announces Julian Lane (4-0, Team Nelson) will fight Bristol Marunde (15-7, Team Carwin). Marunde was selected 2nd by Team Carwin, 3rd overall in the draft while Lane was selected 8th by Team Nelson, 14th overall. Marunde tells Lane that he made a big mistake.
Nate Marquardt, Shane Carwin , Pat Barry and Trevor Wittman are shown coaching Bristol Marunde.
Marunde weighs 186 lbs. and says his training is over and his focus now is to cut weight. Marunde is shown cutting weight by sitting in a hot-tub and sitting in the hot sun while wearing sweats.
Marunde makes weight but Lane and Joey Rivera notice a problem with the scale and don’t believe that Marunde truly made 170 lbs.
Julian Lane gets emotional when talking to Igor Araujo (Team Carwin) about his wanting to win for his daughter and family.
Julian Lane (4-0, Team Nelson) v. Bristol Marunde (15-7, Team Carwin) (TUF 16 Welterweight Tournament- Final 16)
Round 1- Lane and Marunde exchange a heavy punch each and clinch against the fence in the first minute of the round. Marunde holds Lane against the fence and lands solid knees and punches to the body. Marunde holds Lane in a plum clinch and lands several good knees to the head and body. Lane escapes but is cut in a few spots on his face after the exchange. Marunde pushes Lane against the fence but Lane pushes away and fires back with some solid punches to the head. Marunde’s nose is very bloody and could be broken and he pushes Lane against the cage while he tries to recover. Marunde lands more knees in the clinch and punches and sprawls out of a take down and finishes the round in top of Lane delivering hard elbows to the body. I would score Round 1 for Bristol Marunde: 10-9
Round 2- Marunde lands hard leg kicks and controls the octagon but neither man lands much in the first two minutes. Lane lands a heavy right hand but Marunde lands a left hook and a good leg-kick as the fighters remain apprehensive to engage. Marunde clinches Lane against the fence but Lane pushes away. The fighters throw wild punches but cannot connect as they appear hurt and tired from the previous round. I would score Round 2 for Bristol Marunde: 10-9
Bristol Marunde def. Julian Lane via unanimous decision (20-18, 20-18, 20-18) to advance to TUF 16 Welterweight Quarter-Finals
Roy Nelson approaches Dana White after the fight to tell him about the problem with Bristol Marunde’s weigh-in. Nelson asks White if he wants him to make sure the commission is doing their job. White tells him that if the commission says Marunde weighed 170 lbs., then he weighed 170 lbs. White tells the camera that Nelson should have said something at the weigh-ins, not after the fight.
Julian Lane is very disappointed that he lost and cries in the locker room with his team.
