UFC Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale Results: Facebook Preliminary Card

The UFC streamed five preliminary card match ups on their Facebook page preceding the live Spike TV broadcast. The lineup featured featherweight and bantamweight competitors from the reality show who were knocked out of the brackets. The only exception was Josh Clopton, who was defeated by Dustin Neace in this series' opening elimination match.

Neace kicked off the undercard against Bryan Caraway in a featherweight bout. These two were probably the strongest wrestlers of this season. Looking comfortable on his feet early, Neace's striking momentum was interrupted by a Caraway takedown. Caraway was persistent from the top and stayed in the driver's seat with strong control and submission attempts.

Caraway's wrestling prowess proved to be the difference in the second frame as well. After another smooth double leg and more top play, Caraway was able to take Neace's back and secure a rear-naked choke to elicit the tap, which gives Caraway an impressive eight total wins by mata leao.

Stephen Siler took on Josh Clopton in more featherweight action. Capitalizing on his height advantage, Siler snatched the Thai plum in the clinch and punished Clopton with knees throughout the fight. Clopton was game and returned fire at all opportunities, but Siler left few with his relentless clinch assault, taking a unanimous decision with 29-28 scores across the board.

More results after the jump.

SBN coverage of The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale

Seeking revenge, Josh Ferguson was matched with Roland Delorme, who submitted his brother in the first episode to make it into the house. Though it was a valiant effort, Ferguson could not avoid the same fate. After spending most of the first fighting out of a triangle and mounting a comeback in the second, Ferguson was dropped with a stiff jab and Delorme pounced, taking his back, sinking his hooks in with one of Ferguson's arms trapped and stopping the fight with a rear-naked choke.

The Dustin Pague vs. John Albert was a sixty-nine second affair that played out with Albert tagging Pague immediately with a combination. Albert followed the stunned Pague to the mat and transitioned quickly to the mount position where he unleashed a flurry of ground-and-pound for the first round TKO.

In the final Facebook fight, the quickness and striking of Marcus Brimage was too much for Stephen Bass. Low kicks and a hard straight left propelled Brimmage to a unanimous decision with two judges giving him all three rounds and one turning in a 29-28.
