Being on The Ultimate Fighter is a tough thing to do as a fighter, you leave home, your gym, your family behind. You have no contact with the outside world as if you were sequestered on the O.J. Simpson jury, all in pursuit of becoming The Ultimate Fighter, and moving on to the UFC.
Attempting that in a house full of undefeated fighters just adds to the pressure of it all. If you survive the house, you can do anything in life.
In this episode of the show, we caught up with 2 of the guys from The Ultimate Fighter Season 27: UNDEFEATED.
Tyler Diamond, who was a consensus favorite to win the Featherweight division of that season stops by to discuss his life on and off the show, not getting a UFC contract, and his new deal with The Professional Fighter’s League and his quest for a million-dollar payday that will have to wait till next year due to the coronavirus.
Mike Trizano, your TUF 27 Lightweight Ultimate Fighter Champion revisits us to update us on his status, life during the pandemic, and the house.
We had both guys on together as they were castmates, and actually during the show became best friends.
This was a fun episode that if you missed it, jump on this chance to watch it now.
