    Tonight’s episode will feature the second heavyweight fight of the season as selected by middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. With his team taking two losses already, he decides to turn to his biggest gun as former kickboxer turned mixed martial artist - and his No. 1 overall pick - Anderson Da Silva is in action this week against Team Gastelum's Justin Frazier.

    On paper, Frazier should have the advantage just based on mixed martial arts experience alone. With a 10-2 record, Frazier has faced some fierce competition while fighting on the regional circuit in the United States.

    Da Silva comes to the UFC with a wealth of experience in kickboxing, where he regularly competed in GLORY and was previously ranked amongst the best heavyweights in the entire sport. In kickboxing, Da Silva is a ferocious fighter with massive power in his punches and kicks.

    Away from the fight this week, there's an interesting situation brewing in the house amongst the competitors on Team Whittaker and Team Gastelum that has nothing to do with the tournament.

    The international flavor on this season of The Ultimate Fighter is quite diverse, with athletes coming from all over Europe, as well as Brazil and even Cuba. While that shows the true power of MMA on a global scale, it also makes for some difficult communication between some of the fighters.

    Whitaker going for the give me victory... Not to hate. But hopefully the three seconds of training footage was at 30% for Frazier.

    So far... really doubted this guy vs K1 Silva. But he is a round away from advancing.
