Harley Davidson product placement segment! Harley-Davidson is one of the UFC's main sponsors, and they got their money's worth in the opening of Tuesday night's episode. The four semifinalists and two coaches head to a Harley store to pick out the motorcycle he will win. They also play around in the clothing area, and everyone talks about how awesome Harley is.
Semifinal one: Josh Samman (Team Jones) vs. Kelvin Gastellum (Team Sonnen)
Though Samman came into the cage with plenty of swagger, it didn't show in the fight. Gastellum controlled the bout on his feet, and then got the takedown. He controlled the top position, used ground and pound and got a rear naked choke. It was a clinic and a surprisingly easy win for Gastellum.
Dylan Andrews' Dana White impression! Though he was one of the last fighters picked, Andrews made it to the semifinals with an impressive run. It also turns out he does a pretty sweet impression of UFC president Dana White, complete with F-bombs.
Semifinal two: Uriah Hall (Team Sonnen) vs. Dylan Andrews (Team Jones)
In the first round, Hall didn't land anything flashy, but effectively landed strikes and caused some real damage to Andrews' face. Was this going to be Hall's first fight to go distance? Andrews managed a takedown in the second round, but couldn't do anything with it. From the bottom, Hall managed ground and pound, weakening Andrews until Hall took the top position and ended the fight with 12 seconds left.
With those results, Hall will face his teammate Gastellum at Saturday's finale. With two Team Sonnen fighters in the final, Chael Sonnen drives away on a Harley (yay product placement!) as the winning coach.
