The middleweight fight between Nordine Taleb and Tyler Manawaroa may end up being the best battle during the entire season of The Ultimate Fighter Nations: Team Canada vs. Team Australia, but did the right man win?
Nordine and Tyler went to war over all three rounds, but when the final judges’ scores were rendered it was the 19-year old Australian nicknamed ‘Wild Thing’ who came away with the victory.
On this week’s episode of TUF Talk, coaches Kyle Noke and Patrick Cote discuss the fight and how the scoring ended up. Australia’s Noke believes Tyler could have actually wrapped up the fight after the second round, while Cote believes Nordine sealed the deal with a strong round three.
The one thing both coaches can agree upon is the sign that hangs over the door as you enter The Ultimate Fighter gym, don’t leave it in the hands of the judges.
Listen to what Cote and Noke have to say about the latest episode as well as previewing next week’s fight pitting Australia’s Richard Walsh against Canadian striker Matthew Desroches.
