Where Are They Now? – The Ultimate Fighters (Seasons 7-8)

Season 8:

Fighters still contracted to the UFC: 6

(Efrain Escudero, Ryan Bader, Kyle Kingsbury, Tom Lawlor, Eliot Marshall, Krzysztof Soszynski)

Shane Primm

Shane Primm was relatively inexperienced heading into TUF  with only two pro fights under his belt, though the last of those was a win over fellow season 8 competitor Tom Lawlor. He made a successful start on the show, negotiating the preliminary round, but then came undone against Eliot Marshall.  Primm remained in the house and later was caught up in one of the most controversial moments in the series when Junie Browning threw a mug at him and then punched him.

Primm was given the opportunity to appear in the season finale, but after getting caught in a kimura submission by Krzysztof Soszynski he lost the fight, and his place on the UFC’s roster.   7 months later he returned to action against TUF season 7 competitor Mike Dolce, and claimed a first round TKO victory, followed by a further win in November at ‘Art Of Fighting 9’.

Now 25, Primm’s most recent fight came in January when he faced former UFC fighter Luigi Fioravanti at Raging Wolf VI.  He lost by unanimous decision to go 4-2 in his career to date.
