Neace Advances, Beebe Out on TUF 14


Carson BeebeIt was mixed results for Dustin Neace and Carson Beebe on the first episode of “The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller”.

Dustin Neace won via unanimous decision (20-18 on all 3 cards) over Josh Clopton, although Dana White and both coaches believed that Clopton should have got the win. That doesn’t matter now, as Neace is officially in the 145 lb. tourney with the win.

Unfortunately, Gilbert Grappling’s Carson Beebe did not fare as well as Neace. Beebe did land some shots against John Bedford, but Bedford was able to take Beebe down and submit him with a neck crank.

Still, Beebe was happy to have had the opportunity. “TUF was a great experience. Dana White is a super-cool guy and he shows a lot of respect for his fighters,” Beebe told us recently. Just 23, Beebe already has 7 pro wins under his belt and will fight on.

The tournament begins in earnest next week, when the teams will be selected.
