TUF 19: Episode 4 – Stand and Bang
After loosing two fights in a row, Team Edgar starts to get frustrated. Leading up to the fight, Team Edgar’s Matt Van Buren begins to act out. There comes a point where he starts to call out Team Penn’s Chris Fields and targets him specifically for a future match up. Meanwhile leading to his upcoming fight, Team Penn’s Tim Williams talks about a brain aneurysm he had before a fight he was supposed to have against Chris Weidman. At the same time Team Edgar’s Dhiego Lima talks about his immigration and family life.
At the weigh-ins Team Penn begins to chant again which starts to irritate members of Team Edgar, including Lima who says he is going to silence them. The first round goes in Williams favor who controls both on the feel and on the ground, utilizing ground and pound against Lima. In round two Williams still maintains control, however Lima stays alert and in one stuffed take down is able to take Williams’ back and sink in a rear naked choke, submitting Williams. With that Team Edgar gains control. Next match is Corey Anderson versus Josh Clark.
