In what is being called the most shocking twist ever on The Ultimate Fighter, one of the middleweight tournament’s finalists will indeed be ousted from the competition following an incident that will air tonight during a special 90-minute episode of The Ultimate Fighter 7 on Spike TV.
Spike TV has issued the following announcement regarding tonight’s final episode:
In one of the most stunning twists in the history of the Ultimate Fighter, for the first time, a gladiator who endured through six weeks of living in seclusion with fifteen other mixed martial artists in the Las Vegas desert, and defeated three of his housemates for the right to fight for a guaranteed six figure contract with the UFC, will not be participating in the showâ€™s live finale.
Viewers can find out what the ousted fighter has to say for himself exclusively at Spike.com, where a video interview will post at Wednesday, June 18th at 11:30pm EST.
Based on the release the eliminated fighter will be Jesse Taylor, CB Dollaway, or Amir Sadollah. Taylor qualified for the final bout with a victory on last week’s episode while Dollaway and Sadollah clash on tonight’s episode in a battle for remaining finals spot.
A video of the incident depicting someone breaking out the window of a limosine has been shown during previews for tonight’s final episode. Though the circumstances surrounding the incident are currently unknown, everything should become clear following tonight’s episode and subsequent interview with the ousted fighter.
