The Ultimate Fighter 8 Episode 8 Recap


The 155-pound tournament resumes this week as two of the remaining four lightweights clash to secure a spot in the semis.

Team Nogueira has been pilaging Tom Lawlor’s fruit trays while Team Mir has been eating Phillipe Nover’s sushi. Each squad devises a plan to punish the other with Team Mir peeing in the fruit tray and Team Nogueira depositing some sperm onto the sushi. In one of the grosser moments ever broadcast both teams, as anticipated, proceed to down the tainted food.

At fight selection Team Mir chooses Dave Kaplan to face Phillipe Nover in this week’s lightweight contest.

At the Team Mir training session Junie Browning is angry that his team won’t train with him, so he decides to share some details on Kaplan with his opponent Nover.

In the fight Nover is dominant from the beginning, connecting with a barrage of strikes before dropping Kaplan to the canvas. On the ground Nover quickly finishes his opponent off with some ground and pound followed by a rear naked choke.

The teams now sit even at 3-3 and next week it’s Team Mir’s Krzysztof Soszynski against Kyle Kingbury in the final light heavyweight quarterfinals bout.
