Ep 1 of TUF 28 saw a Nelmark of a KO. ‘Heavy Hitters’ is a fitting name

After watching episode 1 of The Ultimate Fighter 28: Heavy Hitters, the name is quite fitting thus far. We were once again introduced to sixteen contestants vying for a shot to become TUF champion and a contract in the UFC. Both of the men’s and women’s heaviest weight classes are represented on the show, so you knew there would be some big finishes.

Such was the case in episode 1 where Maurice Green (6’7) took on Bellator veteran, Przemyslaw ‘PM’ Mysiala 6’0). While PM has much more experience than Greene with over 30 fights, Greene was just too damn big to handle.

Greene used his length to keep PM away from him to stifle PM’s grappling. It worked well, as the closing sequence saw Greene land a solid uppercut that put PM down in a Nelmarkish way.

One fight, one finish. TUF 28 is off to a great start.
