    The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion: Wednesday Nights at 10pm/7pm ET/PT on FS1
    Hey everyone, I thought it'd be cool to have a thread dedicated to talk about the weekly fights and chatter about what happens on the show! I'll try to keep things updated as they progress from week-to-week. Live Sherdogging is welcome while the show airs as well :D

    Episode No. 1 recap: Aug. 30 - We should expect the TUF coaches to select their teams tonight (8 on each team). We had a fight already!
    Roxanne Modafferi (21-13) def. Shana Dobson (2-1) [Rd 1-TKO]: Wow, once Roxanne got that top position it was all over for Shana. "The Happy Warrior" has some nasty elbows! Although Shana was covering up pretty good and didn't look like she was in any real danger, the ref still called it. What do you guys think?

    Episode No. 2 recap: Sep. 6 - #4 DeAnna Bennett (8-3) def. #13 Karine Gevorgyan (3-2) [Rd 1-TKO]
    Episode: Fight! Emily gets hurt in training (doesn't look serious). Both ladies started off looking very focused throwing good punches. DeAnna got the takedown giving her a huge advantage and once she had good positioning she landed numerous elbows and punches. Good stoppage. So far we are 2 for 2 for finishes!

    Episode No. 3 recap: Sep. 13 - #6 Montana Stewart (7-4) def. #11 Ariel Beck (4-4) [Rd 1-Sub]
    Episode: Time To Shine The teams step away from the TUF gym to train at the new UFC Performance Institute, Emily gets treated for her rib injury and look like she's gonna go ahead with her prelim fight. Ariel has an emotional breakdown before her fight with Montana. The Team Gaethje girls go out for a night of bowling (Montana's killing it!) Montana had a good game plan, gets the take down and looks for the finish... and gets it! Well-executed D'Arce. 3 for 3 for finishes! Wow.

    Episode No. 4 recap: Sep. 20 - #14 Nicco Montano (3-2) def. #3 Lauren Murphy (9-3) [Un. Dec]
    Episode: The Truth in Me Lauren Murphy opens up about her troubled past while Nicco Montano teaches the house about her Navajo heritage. Nicco with some very good kicks in Rd. 1, followed by solid elbows to the head of Lauren in Rd. 2. Lauren didn't look that great and looked to clinch late in the fight to try and slow Nicco down. Un. Decision victory for Nicco. Montano vs. Montana in the quarterfinals!

    Ironic that Gaethje is talking about how important mental strength is, and is doing the interviews with Trevor Whitman, who coaches a major head case in Namajunas.

    I'm surprised that the Armenian woman needs a translator. Has there ever been a fighter needing a translator in the TUF house before?

    A square cage. Didn't think those were sanctioned anymore. There are some old Extreme Challenge vids on Fight Pass where they used a square cage.

    Roxy really does look much improved since her first stint on TUF so far. Hope she can live up to that #1 seed.

    Surprised Roxy is the number 1 seed over Barb, but I am guessing unfamiliarity and being off for so long pushed Barb to #2.

    Here is the bracket. Green is Team Alvarez, Blue Team Gaethje

    She had basic present tense and some simple past tense grammar ability along with level one vocabulary, so she could basically communicate needs. She got better the longer she was in the house. (I tried to help her since I'm an English teacher)
