The Ultimate Fighter 12: 5 Things We Learned From Last Night's Episode (Ep. 6)
Episode No. 6 of this season's installment of The Ultimate Fighter was all about the fights. In fact we got a double header this time!
In case you didn't get a chance to see it, we've decided to give you the best five things that you can take away from last night's episode.
Some highlights include:
Team Koscheck getting cocky
Quiet doen't necessarily mean weak.
BJJ is prominent in this episode.
Team Koscheck Acts Like They Won the Whole Show Already
After winning their first fight of the season, Team Koscheck decides to rub it in the faces of their Team GSP house mates.
Thankfully , this little celebration didn't last long as the episode later shows a very disappointing performance by 2 members of the team.
Cody McKenzie: Cool As a Cucumber
Cody McKenzie is a wolf in sheep's clothing. He may look cool but watch out, cause he'll get you.
Fight One: Cody McKenzie (Team GSP) Vs. Marc Stevens (Team Koscheck)
In what amounted to one of the fastest submission defeats in TUF histotry, Submissions expert Cody Mckenzie put Marc Stevens to sleep with a beautiful guillotine choke that put him into unconsciousness in less than 20 seconds.
This guy's new nickname should be "The Sandman"
Fight Two: Jonathan Brookins (Team GSP) Vs. Sevak Magakian (Team Koscheck)
In the second fight of this double header, super sleeper Jonathan Brookins went up against Team Koscheck's wild man, Sevak Magakian.
Brookins used his superior wrestling to set up a beautiful suplex, which he then transitioned into a Rear Naked Choke to secure the win within the first round.
GSP Practices Politeness
While Koscheck walks around talking smack and serving as a terrible example of how to conduct yourself as a fighter.
GSP teaches his camp to speak politely and strike hard where it counts: in the Octagon.
Apparently, the formula seems to be working since they are now up 5 -1 over Team Koscheck.
