The 18th season of the Ultimate Fighter debuted last week on FOX Sports 1 and featured sixteen first round bouts to determine which eight men and eight women would enter the house. After the bouts, coaches Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey picked teams and the first round women's match up was announced with Shayna Baszler vs. Julianna Pena.

 

Discuss tonight's episodes as it airs, live on Fox Sports 1 at 10:00 PM ET...

Tonight is Pena vs Baszler. Baszler is the only other fighter with as much ring time as Roxy. That means Bsszler has to GO.

Plus, that would give Team Tate control of the next pic. That's not nearly as important for Roxy, though, as the next fight will be men. Team Tate needs to get control and KEEP control.

Does control even remotely matter?

 

It seems alot of the time it really makes no difference in the end and it just provides a small

bit of drama.

I think it's unfair for one coach to be able to say "I want my guy to fight THIS guy."

If one team wins then the other team should have to nominate a fighter. Then the team with control gets to pick what fighter they put up against him (or her).

I'm predicting Baszler either gets injured during training and isn't able to fight Pena OR she is injured during the fight and removed from the tournament at that time.

EDIT: This is based on her being seen at XFC wearing an air cast/boot.

Technically, it should be a huge advantage being able to pick your own match up.... It seeming like it doesnt make much of a difference is more a testament to bad coaching then it not actually being an advantage.

I'm so counting on the possibility of cameltoe this season. I hope the shorts ride extra high and no board shorts are worn by the prettier fighters. Fingers crossed. Phone Post 3.0

Well, she definitely makes it into the fight as the preview shows them throwing down.

Only for team morale really.

If you pick well you could possibly come out with a numbers advantage if use good matchups, but the best will probably make the finals anyways Phone Post 3.0

Just by Ronda's extreme level of bitchiness whenever this season is really brought up, I have a feeling her team does a Ken Shamrock. So I think Pena wins.
