    How did Jessica Rakoczy even make the cast, I thought you had to have atleast 4 pro fights and a winning record to be on TUF?

    @mma – Sean Shelby told me we only needed at least one pro mma fight to try out.. I think the rules that were put out originally (regarding minimum of 4 fights) limited them to available girls that they could work with. And so the change! :)
