Ricky Turcios



TUF 29 bantamweight winner
August 28, 2021
Turcios won The Ultimate Fighter 29 Bantamweight Final on Saturday, defeating Brady Hiestand via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN 30 in Las Vegas.
This fight wasn't as close as the "split decision" term would lead you to believe, although Hiestand certainly had his moments. Turcios started strong and finished strong, which is generally a recipe for success. Turcios' biggest moment came in Round 3 when he scored a knockdown. All told, Turcios out-landed Hiestand by more than a two-to-one count (201-82), unofficially. The one concern for Turcios was that he allowed Hiestand to connect on 6-of-11 takedown attempts. On the flip side, Turcios landed two tries of his own. The 28-year-old Texan is now the newest member of the UFC roster.
