TUF Smashes, Episode 1 recap

by Dann Stupp | source: mmajunkie.com

-Dana pays a visit to the "TUF" house, surprising the fighters. He gives them another pep talk. He tells them that no one knows what the top tier UFC fighters make – but hopefully one day they'll get to find out just how much that is.

-During a training session, Team U.K.'s Michael Pastou injures his bicep. He'll need surgery, and his "TUF" future looks doubtful.

-Pearson will go with welterweights for the first fight, and Sots picks Team Australia's Ben Alloway to fight Team UK's Valentino Petrescu. The two fighters face off.

-The fighters are cleared at official weigh-ins when Alloway weighs 170.5 pounds and Petrescu weighs 171.

-After a back-and-forth first round, Alloway defeats Henescu via second-round TKO after dropping him and pounding him out with follow-up punches. Team Australia goes up 1-0 in the competition.

It's UK journalist Gareth A. Davies that is credited with giving it the name. Some great guys on the show. Freakshow is a chap I know quite well. That dude can fight, very scrappy and crazy sub game. Pastou (who went out) is the guy I grappled with at the trials. Massive lightweight (I'm a FW). His replacement to come in tonight is also a guy that I've trained with who is a small lightweight but very well rounded, trained with a catch wrestling team up until recently, now trains with a great team at SBG.

There's gotta be a lot of animosity between the two teams. Interesting attempt at a new format.no fight to get into the house, and your team mates never have to fight each other

I'm really looking forward to see how he goes. I hope he puts on a show but Aussies still get the win.
