The Ultimate Fighter® Finale 5: Maynard vs. Emerson

April 29, 2009

Matchup: Gray Maynard (2-0-0) vs. Rob Emerson (6-6-0)

Date: June 23, 2007

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

Recap: Maynard dominated the bout with his ground attack, and by the end of the first round, Emerson limped back to his corner with injured ribs. Looking to end things, Maynard jumped right in Emerson┬┐s face early in the second and picked him up for a thunderous slam. After referee Steve Mazzagatti waved the bout off, apparently due to the tap by Emerson, the verdict came back as a no contest, with the reasoning being that Maynard was knocked out by his own slam, rendering both fighters unable to continue.

Outcome: No Contest, Round 2
