Falls in TUF 29 final
August 28, 2021
Urbina dropped The Ultimate Fighter 29 Middleweight Final to Bryan Battle on Saturday, falling via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:15 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 30 in Las Vegas.
Urbina was given a second opportunity here and was unable to take advantage. He lost to Tresean Gore in the semifinals of the TUF 29 middleweight tournament, but a knee injury suffered by Gore after the show propelled Urbina into the final against Battle. It started well for the 25-year-old Texan, as he used his physicality, aggressiveness and a pair of successful takedowns to win Round 1, but Battle connected with a double leg takedown in the second frame and quickly took Urbina's back before choking him out. It remains to be seen if the UFC will still extend a contract to Urbina, but the fact he lost on the show won't help matters any.
