Drops tight TUF final
August 28, 2021
Hiestand dropped The Ultimate Fighter 29 Bantamweight Final to Ricky Turcios on Saturday, falling via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC on ESPN 30 in Las Vegas.
Both men had their moments in what was an excellent fight. Hiestand more than hung around, but the judges got this one correct. Hiestand's offensive attacks were entirely centered around his wrestling game. He was borderline overwhelmed by Turcios on the feet, but Hiestand managed to keep this one close by landing 6-of-11 takedown attempts for 7:40 worth of control time. It's difficult to be that successful in the wrestling game and still lose a fight, but that gives you an idea of how ineffective Hiestand was on the feet. A native of Spokane, Washington, Hiestand trains with a team which produced former Ultimate Fighter winners Michael Chiesa and Julianna Pena. He may not have earned his UFC contract tonight, but Hiestand is just 22 years old, and it's extremely likely we will see him in the company at some point in the future.
