Ultimate Fighter results



Las Vegas, Nevada – The oldest fighter in the competition, Igor Araujo, won a majority decision over the youngest, Nic Herron-Webb, on The Ultimate Fighter® Fridays episode five – “Unleash The Beast" – that aired on FX on Friday evening.

 

The victory - the second in a row for coach Shane Carwin’s team over coach Roy Nelson’s - gives them a 3-1 edge after four preliminary bouts.

 

The 6ft 3inch Araujo, aged 31, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is 22-6 in his mixed martial arts career; the 5ft 10inch Herron-Webb, 22, of Anchorage, Alaska, is 11-3.

 

Araujo, a father of two young children, lives in Switzerland six months of the year and has taught Brazilian jiu-jitsu at a school in Geneva since 2006. The French-speaking Araujo trains with TUF 14 winner, Diego Brandao, at Jackson's MMA in Albuquerque. Brandao is in action at UFC 153 tomorrow night.

 

Araujo said: “I felt really happy because I won my fight on my son's birthday. It was really strange fighting in the TUF gym, with Dana White watching, I felt so much pressure. I should have finished Nic, but I didn’t and I didn’t get the $5,000 bonus because of it. I respect Nic, he is a nice guy, he is young and a tough fighter, but in this situation being away from my family was my biggest opponent at that time.”

 

Herron-Webb , nicknamed “NAP-Time” as much for his fondness for snoozing as for his hard-hitting fighting style, said: “I was pretty disappointed after my fight. I felt like I got robbed of the chance to go to a third round. I wish I would have been more aggressive and fought harder. After my fight it felt like the team moral dropped because all of the guys on my team thought it was my fight to win and take back control for our team, so it sucked."
