FIRST ELIMINATION FIGHT: Chip "The Surgeon" Pollard (7-4) vs. Tim "The Ginga Ninja" Welch (9-4).

The pair trade jabs to open, feeling out the distance as they move well around the cage. Pollard looks the faster fighter to open, but Welch lands clean with a right-left combo that sends Pollard to the floor. Welch pounces with a few follow-up shots, and he's awarded the first-round knockout.

COACH SELECTION: Welch elects to become the first member of Greg Jackson's team.

SECOND ELIMINATION FIGHT: Eric "Easy E" Scallan (11-4) vs. Chris "The Action Man" Curtis (7-3)

Scallan kicks the body early as Curtis is trying to touch gloves. Curtis answers immediately with a flash knockdown on a straight and another on a knee shortly after. But Scallan answers back with several takedowns in a round that's aired in highlight form. The second frame is also shortened, but it shows Scallan again working to control the positioning. At the end of two rounds, Scallan is awarded a majority decision.

COACH SELECTION: Behind the scenes, Joe Warren admits he's not sure Scallan is a proper fit for his squad. Unaware of that concern, Scallan elects to become the first member of Warren's team.

THIRD ELIMINATION FIGHT: Brendan "Tiny Shorts" Tierney (10-5) vs. Nick "The Phoenix" Barnes (6-0)

An aggressive Barnes opens with a flurry and drives through a takedown on his larger opponent. Tierney turns for a leg, and while the submission won't come, he does escape to the feet. Barnes fires punches on the restart, but Tierney moves to a Thai clinch and drops his foe with big knees. Tierney immediately moves to the back and looks for a series of submissions. Barnes somehow survives the tight hold and sweeps to the back, where he earns an impressive rear-naked choke finish.

COACH SELECTION: Frank Shamrock offers up the hard sell, and Barnes bites. He's the first member of Shamrock's team.

FOURTH ELIMINATION FIGHT: Darryl "Devastating" Cobb (6-6) vs. A.J. "Pinoy Punisher" Matthews (6-2)

Cobb opens with a power-based game, firing heavy strikes and driving in for a takedown. Matthews answers back in the second frame with hard kicks on the feet and nearly securing the back. With the score even, the pair moves to a third frame. Matthews gets a key takedown and spends much of the frame there, earning him the fight by decision.

COACH SELECTION: Matthews hears positive feedback from all four coaches but ultimately elects to become the first member of Randy Couture's team.

FIFTH ELIMINATION FIGHT: Josh "Quay" Quayhagen (6-1) vs. Chris "The Cleveland Assassin" Lozano (10-3)

Lozano seems to outmuscle Quayhagen in the opening frame. A tired Quayhagen tries valiantly to answer, but Lozano takes him to the floor and pummels his face until the final bell in a brutal beatdown.

COACH SELECTION: All four coaches have positive words for Lozano after the impressive performance. Greg Jackson has an inside track with past experience training Lozano, but the fight elects to get a new look and chooses to become the second member of Shamrock's team.

I had a chance to watch the first episode. I can't necessarily say that I was blown away, but it's an interesting spin on the typical TUF format and I definitely plan on catching the next one. Worth a watch.

higherprimate718 - no offence to that bellator dude. But why would you not go with randy or greg?
Frank shamrock? really?

Olympic level wrestling and training routines, heart of a champion based off the Curran beating, and overall work ethic. Joe Warren just got to the mma game a little late in his prime man. I bet he's a solid coach. Phone Post

Just because he has turned into a delusional asshole doesn't mean that he has forgotten his extensive knowledge of MMA. Phone Post
