The Ultimate Fighter 17 Recap: Episode Eight Features Fight, Coaches Challenge, Picks

The latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter featured a little bit of everything, as coaches Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen took part in the annual coaches challenge. Also, the final prelim fight went down, as Dylan Andrews locked up with Zak Cummings.

Sonnen captured the challenge, earning himself an extra $10,000 and $1,000 for each of his fighters. Cummings, one of those fighters, was not as lucky, falling to Andrews via decision.

Jones and Sonnen were also asked to pick the two wild cards, fighters who lost prelim fights, to compete for the final spot in the quarterfinals. Jones went with Jackson MMA teammate Bubba McDaniel, while Sonnen selected Kevin Casey.

McDaniel and Casey will face each other next week, with the winner joining Andrews, Collin Hart, Josh Samman, Luke Barnatt, Kelvin Gastelum, Uriah Hall and Jimmy Quinlan in the quarters.
