TUF 29: Episode 8 live stream, start time, and channel guide.
Team Volkanovskii picked up its third straight victory of the season in episode 7 of The Ultimate Fighter. Josh Rettinghouse got his hand raised after three hard-fought rounds over Team Ortega’s Brady Hiestand. The contest will return to middleweight for the final bout of the first round for that weight class. Gilbert Urbina of Team Volkanovski will take on Team Ortega’s Miles Hunsinger next.
After seven fights in the TUF house, Brian Otega‘s squad still has the advantage over the champions team. The team records are 4-3 heading into episode 8. Early in the season, Team Ortega jumped out to an early lead, and it looked as though his squad was going to run away with this season’s competition. However, showing true championship resolve, Alexander Volkanovski has rallied his team and is now only one loss away from evening things up.
Looking to episode 8, it will be the undefeated Hunsinger representing Team Ortega as he looks to break the momentum wave of Team Volkanovski when he fights Urbina. Hunsinger, 30, is an LFA, and PFL Everett veteran. The Nampa, Idaho product has been honing his craft with Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is a high-energy fighter that likes to push the pace.
As for Urbina, the 25-year-old from Archbold, Ohio, has spent time training at the BMF Ranch with UFC legend Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in the past. He will be the bigger fighter, standing at 6’3; Urbina will have a three-inch height advantage over Hunsinger. Urbina has only one defeat on his record, that being to fellow UFC fighter Sean Brady.
