Andy Ogle secured the final quarterfinal spot on this season's The Ultimate Fighter on Friday night.

The lightweight submitted Mike Rio with a rear-naked choke at the 4:19 mark in the second round, keeping his chances alive for the reality title.

"Mike is the nicest guy on their team so it was a pleasure to beat him," said Ogle. "If I was going to lose, it would be great to lose to someone I really respect."

"Andy fought a great fight. He was beating me to the punch - literally to the punch," said Rios. "He made me chase him the whole time and my gas tank was empty."

UFC president Dana White also announced the show's first two quarterfinal showdowns after the fight. Joe Proctor will square off against James Vick, and Justin Lawrence will take on Michael Chiesa.
