Plus his first win on the show...
Adam Cella recently spoke with MMAjunkie about how he got into MMA, picking up his first in on The Ultimate Fighter 17 and more. Check out the highlights:
On how he got into MMA: "I graduate high school, and I got fat. I really wanted to get in shape, but as that was going through my head, I went and saw a local fight in St. Louis and saw someone get knocked out. I was like, 'Wow. That's cool. That was better than TV.'"
On beating Jake Heun via tapout in the TUF season debut: "I'm supposed to be a standup guy, but I've got a couple submissions (in my career), and to get in the house, I got a guy in a pretty good armbar. The black belts here were pretty impressed. I think it was a little bit of luck, but I'm good at knowing when you can finish a fight."
