01 Jan Video: Best Ultimate Fighter finishes features Uriah Hall’s scary spin kick KO, Scott Smith’s insane comeback
The Ultimate Fighter will be back on the air next week, so now is a good time to catch up on some of the best finishes from the long-running reality series.
On Wednesday, the UFC posted a highlight reel of TUF knockouts, including Uriah Hall’s unforgettable spin kick knockout of Adam Cella that ranks among the scariest KOs in MMA history.
Also featured are Scott Smith’s classic comeback against Pete Sell from The Ultimate Fighter 4 Finale and James Vick’s spectacular knee KO of Daron Cruickshank from the first and only live season of TUF.
TUF returns for the first time since 2018 with its 29th season that premieres next Tuesday on ESPN+. This upcoming season features two opposing teams comprised of bantamweights and middleweights coached by UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega. The coaches are expected to meet in a title fight later this year.
As per tradition, the winner of the bantamweight and middleweight tournaments will earn a UFC contract.
