Team Rampage’s Marcus Jones became the team’s only fighter to advance to the tournament’s quarterfinals, handing Team Rashad their only loss of the opening round with a quick and impressive armbar submission of Mike Wessel.
After consulting with the coaches and interviewing the fighters, Dana White announced the quarterfinal matchups as:
- Roy Nelson (Team Rashad) vs. Justin Wren (Team Rashad)
- Brendan Schaub (Team Rashad) vs. Jon Madsen (Team Rashad)
- James McSweeney (Team Rashad) vs. Matt Mitrione (Team Rashad)
- Darrill Schoonover (Team Rashad) vs. Marcus Jones (Team Rampage)
Next week on The Ultimate Fighter 10, Mitrione is taken to the hospital and it’s teased (yet again) that Kimbo Slice could be tapped as a replacement, while Nelson and Wren meet in the first quarterfinal bout.
