UFC Ultimate Fighter Live Results: Mike Chiesa Defeats Jeremy Larsen

TUF 15

This week's episode of UFC's The Ultimate Fighter Live featured the fourth tournament fight as Michael Chiesa from Team Faber took on Jeremy Larsen from Team Cruz. In the end, Chiesa survived a 1 point deduction due to an illegal knee to take home the unanimous decision victory after 2 rounds. With that win, Team Faber ties up the competition at 2-2.

Heading into the fight the battle plans were clear - Larsen wanted to keep the fight standing and make it a slugfest, while Chiesa wanted to use his wrestling to take it to the mat. At first, Larsen did good work defending the takedown, but Chiesa was relentless, switching between different takedown approaches to get the fight to the ground repeatedly. There, he had a distinct advantage.

Near the end of round 1, Chiesa was looking to land a knee to Larsen from the clinch. Larsen dropped to one knee, Chiesa did not recognize it, and threw an illegal knee to the head. Referee Steve Mazzagatti took away a point for the illegal strike. Combined with Chiesa's control in that round, that made it a pretty clear 9-9 with the winner of round 2 poised to take the fight.

In the second round, Larsen had more success keeping it standing, but ended the fight with Chiesa on his back defending against the rear naked choke. That dominant position, and his general control of the ground game throughout the round, was enough to give Chiesa the round 10-9 and the unanimous decision win.

Back in control, Urijah Faber set up next week's fight: Joe Proctor vs. Chris Tickle. Come back next week for an in-depth preview.
