The Ultimate Fighter 16 Episode 3 Discussion Thread

The 16th Season of the The Ultimate Fighter continues on FX

The ratings continue to be poor for this season, but drama between the coaches Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin continues to build. TUF 16 drew their worst season premiere numbers in series history, and this week the ratings were even worse. According to MMA Junkie, TUF put up a paltry 872,000 this past Friday.

As Fraser Coffeen pointed out in his weekly recap power-puncher Sam Alvey ran away with the most impressive performance of the night and earned his spot as Carwin's #1 pick. Both Fraser and Dana White also noted that Shane appears to have picked the stronger team from the 16 fighters.

The show starts at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST), jump in the comments and tell me how much you love Roy's beard and mullet.
