TSN: The Ultimate Fighter Undefeated: 16 Fighters, 0 Losses, 2 Winners

April 17, 2018 — 

A new season of “Ultimate Fighter” is back on TV and a U of M Faculty of Engineering alumnus is among the fighters to watch. What!? It’s true. 

As TSN reports in their rundown of the fighters:

Brad Katona: Katona is the show’s lone Canadian and the 26-year-old, 6-0 featherweight has been fighting in Western Canada’s regional scene since he was 23.

Katona has shown his diversity by winning at least one fight by KO, submission and decision.

While his game is well-rounded, he is a decorated striker, having won the gold medal at the Canadian Golden Gloves boxing championship in 2013.

In addition to fighting, Katona also has a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Manitoba.
