UFC: Welcome to the 29th season of The Ultimate Fighter! You are the third Urbina brother to participate in the series. What does it do?
Urbine: Following them and having older brothers doing great things kind of underestimated me, not overlooked. I’m thrilled to be the third Urbina brother in the series, but since I was 18 I have dreamed of being in the UFC.
UFC: What do you think will be the most difficult challenge of the series?
Urbine: Dude, I’m going to miss my mom’s flour tortillas. She kills him in the kitchen and I will definitely miss her. I’m not the type to cook; they have talented hands and i will miss it.
UFC: Why do you think you’ll be the last man standing in this competition? Why are you going to win The Ultimate Fighter Season 29?
Urbine: Growing up training at American Top Team and Jackson-Wink, seeing how much they love the game and the mentalities. I got it; I already know I have this. It makes me more valuable to the UFC. Even though I don’t win the show, just like my brothers failed to win the show, I know I’ll be picked by the UFC because I have what it takes.
I have a loss – I lost to Sean Brady by decision in a three-round main event which doesn’t make sense to me and he’s currently ranked number 15 in the world and I weigh 170 pounds, but I’m a welterweight coming after middleweights right now.
