Review of The Ultimate Fighter 18 episode 13

This is the final episode of The Ultimate Fighter 18. The finals will be this Saturday at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The men's final is Chris Holdsworth of Team Tate vs Davey Grant of Team Rousey. Holdsworth should be the favourite. Jessica Rakozcy of Team Rousey will face Raquel Pennington of Team Tate to decide who will face Julianna Pena in the final. Both fighters have nagging injuries. Jessica is still having shoulder problems. Raquel seems to hurt her forearm while training with Louis Fisette. Raquel believes that because Jessica is a pro boxer, she plans to take Jessica down and beat her that way. Jessica plans to keep it standing. Raquel is larger than Jessica and probably stronger. But she admits after the fight that she psyched herself out and didn't do anything that she said she would do. The first round is close but it's a bad sign when Raquel doesn't attempt a takedown until the end of the round. In round two, Jessica executes her game plan to outpunch Raquel. And Raquel is ineffective for the final two rounds. So Jessica Rakozcy will face Julianna Pena in this Saturday's TUF. I'll have more on these two in a separate post coming immediately after I finish this one. There will be two other women's fights on the show. Jessamyn Duke will face Peggy Morgan and Raquel Pennington will face Roxanne Modafferi. Shayna Bazsler and Sarah Moras are out with injuries. Enjoy the video!
