Ultimate Fighter Season 30 Results Are In For Zac Pauga vs Nyle Bartling

Ultimate Fighter Season 30 Zac Pauga vs Nyle Bartling

Results from the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter 30: Zac Pauga vs Nyle Bartling

Amanda Nunes was once again outwitted by Julianna Peña.

It wasn’t nearly as high a stakes as the UFC 269 bantamweight title bout between Peña and Nunes, but Peña can still claim her part of the bragging rights when Team Nunes’ Nyle Bartling (6-0) was defeated by unanimous decision in the season opener of The Ultimate Fighter 30.

Pauga was Peña’s second heavyweight pick, and he didn’t disappoint, out-striking Bartling and stuffing his takedowns for the rest of the two rounds. Pauga is a training partner of Curtis Blaydes at Elevation Fight Team in Denver.

It wasn’t until the second round that Bartling was able to land a hard left hand, but Pauga was able to get out of unfavourable positions and land a hand on Bartling both on the ground and when he was standing up to secure a victory.

It was revealed earlier that Peña had picked Helen Peralta and Mohammed Usman, the brother of UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Nunes had chosen flyweight Claire Guthrie and heavyweight Eduardo Perez.
