Check out our Team McGregor vs Team Faber recap for episode four.
At the end of the last show, Urijah Faber chose Tom Gallicchio vs Marcin Wrzoseck as the next fight.
Conor McGregor was going at Sascha Sharma in the locker room, telling him that it was his errors and not the fact that his opponent was better than him. He thinks that he just didn’t have it in him to win.
Urijah is throwing digs at McGregor for not coaching enough. McGregor said that world champions don’t need their hands held.
Gallicchio talks about his rise to the sport and how it took him much longer to get to the UFC than he’d hoped and he’s not there yet. Faber tells Gallicchio that Wrzoseck doesn’t have good takedown defense but does have good submissions off his back.
McGregor feels badly about how he reacted after Sharma lost. He said he was once a young kid who made mistakes.
Johnny Nunez stayed behind with Gallicchio to help him cut weight and missed practice. Faber was bothered because they brought Nunez back and he should be with the team.
Marcin Wrzoseck Vs Tom Gallicchio
Gallicchio was high on Wrzoseck’s back and Wrzoseck was like a tripod and punching him right in the face. With barely over a minute in the round, Wrzoseck bucked him off. He was winning the stand-up for a second until Gallicchio shot in and was able to get on top. Gallicchio tried to roll him into something, but Wrzoseck ended up on top.
Gallicchio was on top quickly and trying to ground and pound, but Wrzoseck maneuvered his way to the top. Wrzoseck blasted him from the top. Gallicchio looks like he’s in slow motion by comparison. Every time Gallicchio goes for a slow takedown, Wrzoseck stops him. Wrzoseck ended the round on top with ground and pound.
Winner: Marcin Wrzoseck by way of unanimous decision
Faber thought there was going to be another round.
McGregor picked Saul Rogers to take on Billy Quarantillo.
Final thoughts: The fight was a bit lackluster and there wasn’t as much firepower between Faber and McGregor. Still a solid episode, but maybe the least entertaining of the bunch.
