Men's Bantamweight

Ronda Rousey won the coin toss and deferred receiving the kickoff to the 2nd half chose the first fight of the show, and she's pitted Shayna Baszler and Julianna Pena against each other in a battle of their top picks.

The television promos have been calling this a heated episode between the rival coaches, and that the fight itself will produce "one of the most shocking battles in TUF history". Well will it? Watch the show on FS1 and discuss the episode with us right here on Bloody Elbow.
