The Ultimate Fighter 17: Kevin Casey Explains Stoppage Loss

Kevin Casey TUF 17Last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 17 featured one of the stranger stoppages on the show as Kevin Casey was unable to continue for a third round in last night’s fight with Bubba McDaniel. While the cameras showed an exhausted Casey being brought to the back and taken away in ambulance, it did not show the full explanation of events. The fighter took to twitter to explain what the cameras missed.

 

 

Kidney problems are not an uncommon issue due to hard weight cuts. With the rapid fire nature of the fights on The Ultimate Fighter 17 fighters are often forced to make extreme cuts on short notice. It should also be noted that the episodes of the show are often edited to sensationalize some things and downplay others for the narrative. Ironically, last night’s episode also utilized previously used footage of Casey being taken away in ambulance.
