"Obviously, I'm happy that I won, I'm pleased that I pulled off the win," Chivichyan said. "But I'm the type of fighter that when I fight, my No. 1 goal is to finish the fight.
"Dane was a tough guy, he was physically stronger than I thought [he would be]. I think I underestimated his wrestling, he was harder to take down than I thought."
In footage leading up to the fight, both Sayers and Chivichyan are showcased.
A conversation between Koscheck and Chivichyan is particularly revealing, as Chivichyan tells his coach about his life in his late-teens when he drank and partied too much and one particular night after, "being at the wrong place at the wrong time," was shot in the leg by "gangbangers."
"Psycho has been through a lot, you know, running the streets, drinking, partying, to being shot," Koscheck says during a confessional, referring to Chivichyan by his nickname. "He comes back and starts training and three years later he's on 'The Ultimate Fighter.' The kid has changed his life and I think it's mostly because of this sport. This sport will change you."
The show then segues into the coach's challenge, a seasonal tradition in which opposing head coaches go one on one in some sort of athletic endeavor. This time it's baseball, with the American Koscheck, although seemingly somewhat of a novice, holding a distinct advantage over the Canadian, St. Pierre, who says he's never swung a baseball bat. The two engaged in a game of over-the-line, more or less, earning different point totals for hitting pitches certain distances.
Koscheck urges his fighters to make some noise and they oblige, with Magakian being the most boisterous.
