With another episode of The Ultimate Fighter down, the field is beginning to thin out. Pretenders are being exposed, while contenders are making a case to become potential tournament champions.
The teams, coached by Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, continued training and prepared for a fight between Bubba McDaniel of Team Jones and Kevin Casey of Team Sonnen.
Here are the power rankings for the show in the aftermath of the McDaniel-Casey scrap.
Note: Rankings are based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the following: overall record (before coming on the show as well as on the show), strength of competition (extra points given for how they have fared against current and/or former UFC fighters), number of decisive victories (extra points given for knockout and submission finishes) and the X-factor of their upside/ceiling.
