TUF 17 Finale Predictions


This weekend, TUF is taking place live on FX at the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. These are the fight predictions and who we think will win.

Bubba McDaniels Vs. Gilbert Smith

With this fight starting off the main card, Bubba has plenty of fight experience and it should play a factor in this fight. Gilbert is still finding his stride in the fight game. Jon Jones hyped up McDaniels throughout the season and in this fight we should see why. Gilbert Smith needs just a little more seasoning before coming up to the big leagues.

Prediction: Bubba McDaniels def. Gilbert Smith by second round submission.

Travis Browne Vs. Gabriel Gonzaga

With the heavyweight division looking thin, this fight is an opportunity for the winner to move up the rankings and eventually make their way towards a title shot. Gonzaga has looked impressive with his three fight winning streak. Look for that streak to end. Browne is coming off a loss but he is too young and too hungry to lose this fight.

Prediction: Travis Browne def. Gabriel Gonzaga by TKO second round.

Miesha Tate Vs. Cat Zingano

This fight offers the most intrigue, the winner will become the top contender for Ronda Rousey’s UFC Bantamweight title. They also get to coach season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter. The experience factor will play a major role in this fight. Look for Tate to keep the pressure on Zingano and win by points.

Prediction: Miesha Tate def. Cat Zingano by unanimous decision.

Uriah Hall Vs. Kelvin Gastelum

This fight will decided who wins this season of The Ultimate Fighter. Uriah Hall has been nothing more than spectacular during his stint on TUF. Gastelum has a chance to make history. He can become the youngest winner of TUF since he is only 21 years old. Look for Hall to overpower Gastelum and knock him out. Making a statement as an immediate threat to the Middleweight division.

Prediction: Uriah Hall def. Kelvin Gastelum by TKO first round.

Urijah Faber Vs. Scott Jorgensen

When the initial main event Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga falling through due to Johnson’s injury. Faber and Jorgensen were able to make the save and the winner of this fight has the opportunity to stay relevant and work their way to a title shot. The loser of this bout will be nothing more then a gatekeeper for the division. Urijah Faber has too much to lose in this fight. Faber has too many tools and his cardio will play a factor in this bout.

Prediction: Urijah Faber def. Scott Jorgensen by unanimous decision.

    I have the exact same picks and same methods! I think Kelvin is good, but we saw how shocked he was when Uriah finished Dylan Andrews from the bottom, and that will make Kelvin think twice about taking Uriah down, and obviously Uriah has better standup, which will be the deciding factor in my opinion

    Kelvin will be a force….at 170 or 155…. he can’t stay at 185. IF he can get uriah on his back early he can make it a fight….the kid is to young to know he is supposed to lose. If he can hang for 2-3 rounds then those smaller guys better watch out down the road.

    Oh and bubba will get KO’d or tap out. He has no heart and that ain’t gonna change.
