The Ultimate Fighter 9 Episode 3 Recap

The Ultimate Fighter 9 LogoTwo spots on Team US remain after John-David Shackelford and Christian Fulgium were sent packing on last week’s episode. Rob Browning and Frank Lester were tapped to square off with Jason Dent and Kiel Reid respectively for the final openings.

Before we get to the fights the US and UK teams as well as the fighters who must still fight their way onto the squad head to The Ultimate Fighter house. The fighters get along well, except for Browning, who opts to lob eggs onto the basketball court where the other fighters are assembled. Back in the house, Browning gets his drink on then gets into it with Team UK before eventually smashing an egg on potential teammate Jason Pierce, who wisely chooses not to respond to the instigator.

The next day is the first workout for both teams and the trash talking begins between Team US and Team UK coach Michael Bisping. After the workouts we’re onto this week’s bouts.

Frank Lester joined Team US after opponent Kiel Reid knocked himself unconscious when his head hit the mat during an attempted slam.

In the final elimination bout, Jason Dent filled the final Team US opening with a first-round TKO of Rob Browning.

Team US coach Dan Henderson wins the coin toss and will pick the first matchup on next week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 9.
