The Ultimate Co-ED fighter!
Getting the thread going early so everyone can see the preview and know when it airs, sept 4th.
As Joe Rogan puts it, "this could be the first TUF where someone gets pregnant" hahaha!
I love how Ronda slapps Miesha with the glove!
I'll be following this one closely, mostly because a friend of mine made it into the show. Watch for Sarah "cheesecake" Moras. She has been naturally tight lipped about what happens on the show, but I'm confident she does quite well :)

I find it funny that Shayla Basler made it on for one I think she lost her last match and two she criticised Rousey's one trick pony status. Hope she landed on Meisha's team else things would've been akward...

I find it funny how TUF is supposed to be a way to bring unknown fighters into the limelight and build prospective newcomers to the UFC but the female cast list is full of extremely experienced fighters who have more than made a name for themselves already.
It's a shame female MMA isn't large enough for the UFC to bring in a bunch of actual untested newcomers.

I might have to watch this season, since Jessamyn Duke is from my hometown (Richmond, KY).
My best friend (and several other people I train with) has actually trained in Muy Thai with her, and says she's an utter badass. For that reason alone, I have to support Ms. Duke.

i'm already interested in the way the fights are going to turn out after watching the 1st episode. i am also already sure that the house drama is going to be really annoying this year, getting my ffwd finger ready (gotta love tivo.)"Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.

Geez, already with the drama on the preview for the next episode.
I really liked the format of this first episode. The new "tale of the tape" is simple but much better imho since I can actually see the fighter's faces without putting strange faces or weird full cocky postures. The slowmo highlights summing up the fights were nice as to not make it too long and boring, though I'd appreciate it if they uploaded the full fights on their web or something.
Best phrase thus far "Peggy don't give a ****, man. Yeah, Peggy don't give a ****."

It's the same format as last year and it's still good. I'm interested in all the fighters but don't look forward to Rhonda acting like a moron.

Some pretty good fights in the first episode. Some not so good fights too hahaha. I fucking hate wrestlers....
My girl Sarah did pretty awesome, as we suspected she did :)
