Roy Nelson evened the score with Shane Carwin on The Ultimate Fighter Friday night, as Joey Rivera defeated Sam Alvey via decision. Last week, Carwin's team scored the win and gained control of the fight selection.
Rivera, who trains at his own gym in Tucson, Arizona, scored a majority decision to advance. He joins Neil Magny in the winner's bracket.
"I felt fantastic after this win," Rivera said. "My dreams were finally becoming a reality. I felt a lot of tension. It was the hardest fight of my life to that point because I didn't know a lot about him."
