TUF 6 Quickcap
Not looking for a minute-by-minute account of each episode? Just want the basic facts so that you're caught up for the next week? Well, you've come to the right place. Let's go straight to my quickcap of episode three of The Ultimate Fighter 6.
Notable Matt Hughes quote of the week: A week after holding bible study and comparing himself to the Queen in the parable he had his fighters read, Hughes continued with more memorable quotes this week. Hughes claimed to his team that he only has two or three fights left in his career and that he didn't train up to his standards in his last four or so fights.
Will Joe Scarola finally leave the house?: It didn't take long for the real-life Matt Serra protégé to finally call it quits. After whining about wanting to go home for the better part of an episode and a half, even a visit from Dana White couldn't ultimately stop Scarola from leaving the house on his own in episode three. Serra claimed that if Scarola, the best man at his wedding, left he would no longer be Serra's trainer. Alas, nobody could convince Scarola to stay. I'll miss watching him slowly throw away the best opportunity he may ever have in his life.
TUF fighters meet their 17th cast member -- alcohol: Reality TV wouldn't be what it is without alcohol and hot tubs. In the third episode, we finally got some alcohol. And the fighters did what we would all do -- they banged their heads against large metal shields, they tossed punching dummies into the pool, they climbed the roof of the house, and they "painted" the walls.
The fight: Hughes picked Billy Miles from his team to fight Team Serra's Joe Kolosci. It seemed as though everyone including White believed Miles would win. Everyone, that is, except Kolosci and coach Serra. Even suffering a cold or the flu on fight day, Kolosci defeated Miles by Guillotine choke in the first round.
The score: Team Serra now leads Team Hughes 2-1. Team Serra picks the next fight.
Next week's teaser: Apparently, week two's eliminated fighter, Dorian Price crosses the line and attempts to or actually does assault a member of the show's filming crew.
