Friday night’s The Ultimate Fighter: Live Episode 10 hosted the first two quarterfinal bouts of this season’s lightweight tournament.
Team Faber’s Mike Chiesa pounded out Justin Lawrence, while Team Cruz’s James Vick won a decision over Joe Proctor to move into the semifinal round.
Shortly after their fights ended, the pairings were made for next week’s quarterfinal brackets.
While the first two quarterfinal bouts paired up fighters from opposing teams in both, the final two bouts have one match-up between teammates.
Andy Ogle and Al Iaquinta, both of Team Faber, square up in one of the quarterfinal bouts, while Vinc Pichel of Team Cruz faces Chris Saunders in the other.
The two semifinal bouts will take place on Episode 12 on May 25. The winner will be crowned at the TUF: Live Finale on June 1 in Las Vegas.
