A Canadian Recap of TUF 9 UK vs USA – Episode 2


TUF 9 Team USA

Episode 2 starts out with Dan Henderson being announced as the USA coach.  What does Hendo want to do?  “Beat the hell out of the UK guys!”

Jason Pierce, a US Welterweight, faints at the start of the episode due to troubles cutting weight.  He ends up staying to fight.

However, John-David Shackelford has a Herpes lesion on his forehead and has to leave the house.  Christian Fulgium showed up overweight, passed out on the treadmill, could not make weight, and also had to leave before fighting.  Replacements fighters will be named to replace these early exits.

A couple of notable points from the show:

  • Mark Miller and Kevin Knabjian train together yet must fight each other to get into the house.
  • Santino Defranco made TUF 2.  During the doctor’s examination prior to the show, it was determined that Defranco had a brain aneurysm.  Defranco had surgery for the condition and is now back on TUF 9.  Nice story.

    Agreed Denter. Let’s hope Dent beats him as quickly as Miller beat Browning Sr. I don’t want another TUF season like last year.
