Dane Sayers Wiki Update Wiki

Dane Sayers is best known for his time on season 12 of the Ultimate Fighter. Sayers would defeat Ariel Sexton via standing RNC in the second round, a fight which he was heavily losing, to get into the house. In Sayers' quarterfinal bout, he would face judo practitioner Sako Chivitchian. Sayers would go on to lose a hard fought unanimous decision. Despite his bout being close with Sako, he was not selected for the "wild card" to re enter the competition due to his lac of experience. 
Since the show he has moved up to middleweight and amassed a record of 11-3 on the regional circuits.
