Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16 results and live blog for episode 5 tonight (Oct. 12) on FX

Complete results and a running live blog for episode five of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 16 on FX, featuring the next elimination fight and all the usual madness in the TUF house.

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) returns TONIGHT (Fri., Oct. 12, 2012) for episode five of the once great reality television show's 16th season on its loving home on the FX channel at 10 p.m. ET.

Last week's episode saw Zuffa veteran Bristol Marunde executing a smart game plan on his way to a unanimous decision victory over Julian Lane, the resident bad boy of the house with his pink hair and short temper, to the delight of no one.

Now it's time for the next elimination fight and more hijinks inside the TUF house.

As always.

A complete live blog with full results from the show:



Geno here.

Broadcast is live.

Typical intro. Shit's going down tonight, lame song, highlights, blah blah.

Man, the stock formula for this show is awful. Guess what's happening at the start of this episode?

You got it!!

Reactions in the locker rooms of the winner and loser. The winner is happy, the loser is sad.


Back to the house and Lane is upset still. He tells the guys he's never done two rounds before. Now he's telling everyone he'll get mad quick and beat someone's ass in the house and get sent home. Now he takes his shirt off and gets in Secor's face, throwing his toe nail clippers.

He's pushing Secor and saying he puts people to sleep for fun.

"I knock people out every day, man!"

This guy is an idiot.

"I will go home right now! I will go home right now, man! I don't got shit to fight for right now! I lost my fucking fight; I will go home, dog!"


Nelson team training session and Diffley tells coach everyone is pissed about not doing two-a-days. Nelson is resistant, of course, and the guys aren't happy at all about the training regime.

How surprising is it that Roy Nelson's training is soft as hell?

His argument is that you can't be doing two-a-days when you have to fight as often as they do. That's actually not bad and he gets some support for that.


Fight announcement time.

Carwin picks:

Nic Webb vs. Igor Araujo.

Everyone feels good about the pick. The staredown gets intense because they bump foreheads and Webb pushes Igor's face away.

"Don't touch my face, bro."

Sounds like the entire house is ready for Webb to get his shit pushed in. Oh, he's the guy who was whistling and jumping rope in the middle of the night waking people up.

As expected, training montage stuff with both squads. Eliot Marshall is brought in by Carwin and Igor really likes that because Marshall speaks Portuguese. Carwin says the game plan is simple and he should be able to put it into play just fine.



Mike Ricci got his mattress tossed outside. He goes out there and it's on the gazebo.

Apparently Webb did it. He says he's not going to go get it back.

Webb and Lane deny doing anything. Webb then admits to it and says he won't be getting anything. Ricci knocks his hat off and goes climbing up the gazebo to get it while Webb and Lane sit there and laugh.

Ricci calls them bums and flips his lid the whole way.


Time for the Nelson training session with a special emphasis on Webb. He reminds us he comes from Alaska, which could help explain his lack of social skills.

Then again, it is the TUF house.

Nelson tells Webb he just needs to be on top during the fight. Big surprise there. Webb promises to shock with his "jitz," which is just the worst abbreviation for Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

"I'm going to show people why I really deserve to be in this house."


Igor is crying tears and says he's been doing so every night because he misses his family. He's convincing us that he's not weak and each tear is just making him stronger. He's happy to be here but really misses his family.


After a brief cut away to Webb chit-chatting in bed talking about how he thinks he's got a good match-up, we cut back to Igor and he's praising the most high.

"I will never underestimate anybody. I'm better than him but of course he can come and submit me too."

Why does it seem like the best all talk like that? Silva, St. Pierre, Dos Santos, they all act like they're going to get beat by pedestrian contenders who really have no chance. Maybe it's like Van Gogh never being happy with his work.

Or some shit.


Time to fight. Finally.

Nic Webb vs. Igor Araujo (170-pound limit)

Round one: Igor immediately gets a takedown and works from top. Webb goes for butterfly guard, Igor pops up and comes down with a hard punch. Now he's sitting in half guard. Passes to full mount with about three and a half minutes to go in the round. He keeps working and now he's got Webb's back. Punches from both sides, hooks in deep, flattening him out, looking for the opening for the rear-naked choke. Igor dominant here. The round closes and Nelson tells Webb he lost that round. Uh, yeah.

Round two: Igor on top again to start the second and Webb grabs a kimura. Igor rolls through and gets an armbar of his own but Webb gets out and lands on top. Now it's his turn to work with superior position, which he's not doing such a good job of. In fact, Igor finally reverses and ends up on top but Webb stays busy from the bottom. He misses on the upkicks but grabs for a kneebar and an ankle lock. He gets neither and gets up to sit in Igor's full guard. The hammer sounds to signal 10 seconds left and everyone thinks it's going to a third round.

Final result: Igor Araujo def. Nic Webb via majority decision


Well, that was unexpected and Dana White is upset, saying it should have gone to a third round.

"That was bad," he said.

They go over the fight and Carwin was confident in his guy, Nelson said not to leave it in the hands of the judges, and White is pissed that the judges didn't let Webb get one more round.

A couple judges scored 10-8 for the first one, which I don't agree with either.

White goes into the locker room and tells Webb that was as bad as it gets. "You got fucked."

I don't know about going that far, but whatever.

Next week, we get more turmoil in the house and Coach Roy is pissed his team keeps losing.

See you in seven, Maniacs.
