Well, I can’t believe that the final episode is done and the season is over. It seems like just yesterday I was at the tryouts in Vegas waiting in line for hours with 300+ plus fighters from all over the world, all with the same goal. Jessica Rakoczy vs Raquel Pennington I will kick things […]

It was the first semi-final fight for the girls – Julianna was facing off against Sarah. I think everyone in the house was cheering for Sarah just because nobody was very fond of Julianna, including myself. I did not hate Julianna at all and she might be a good person in the outside world, but […]

We kick off the episode with Rhonda and Marina coming to the house to visit her team. Rhonda began making everyone these mudslide type alcoholic shakes for her team. I think I was the only member from Team Tate that joined them in the festivities. The shakes she made were pretty good too. It was […]

I didn’t submit a write up last week due to the fact that the UFC only aired a recap episode with no fight and no new footage. I personally think the recap episode was totally unnecessary and pointless and I know a lot of viewers were not happy with it, but maybe they didn’t have […]

Team Rousey regained control after Davey beat Louis last week and they selected Jessamyn Duke to fight Raquel Pennington. I think this was the match up our team wanted anyway so I think Raquel was pleased with it. In the house, Julianna gave Raquel and Sarah a make over. Anyone could tell that those girls […]

This week starts off fresh from Roxanne’s defeat from Jessica. I knew Roxy was very upset losing, just like any fighter that loses. Many people do not realize how much time, effort and sacrifice goes into the training, into the preparation and into the actual fight. Most people just see two people enter the cage, […]

This week kicks off right away with some drama and again it is the coaches not the competitors that are the ones involved. Team Rousey’s coach Edmond and our newest coach Dennis Hallman somehow got into it right off the get go. I don’t know how exactly it started between them, but Edmond said something […]

Well, now the drama is starting to begin in and out of the house between coaches and contestants Before the match up between Beal and Holdsworth was announced, Team Tate discussed it and it came down to either me or Holdsworth fighting first. I had popped my knee the first actual day of training down […]

So one hard part is now in the books and now comes the even harder challenge: living with total strangers in a house for six weeks, contained from the outside world, no contact with any family or friends, no music, TV, cell phones, internet, books, or even magazines and, oh yes, having to fight again […]

Well, after weeks of having to keep my mouth shut, I can finally open up a little bit and speak about what happened on The Ultimate Fighter. Sitting at my girlfriend’s parent’s house having dinner about a month after the tryouts and my phone rings and I see the name on the phone and got […]
