TUF The Smashes Episode 8 opened with both teams coming together for the announcement of the final preliminary fight, which is between lightweights Grant Blackler (AUS) vs. Mike Wilkinson (UK).

With one of the UK welterweights getting a second chance after Manny Rodriguez’s injury, training was ramped up for the eliminated welterweights in case they got the call.

One of the UK training staff decided to walk in on an Australian training session and coach George Sotiropoulos wasn’t impressed, ordering the UK coach to leave. UK head coach Ross Pearson also came in as they looked for their training book and Sotiropoulos went toe-to-toe with his next opponent.

“I’m not scared of George,” Pearson said. “If he spoke to me like that on the street, I would have knocked him out.”

The teams came together once again, but there was yet another twist. Sotiropoulos revealed that Australia’s new teammate, James Vainikolo, would in fact fight eliminated Australian welterweight Xavier Lucas for a spot in the semifinals.

Both teams once again came together for a Skype meeting with UFC president Dana White...

'm not sure what was the 'worst thing ever' still, was it the UK team using a cell phone?

I saw the preview last week for this one
I though maybe someone snuck a friend into the house
Cell phone use is blown way out of proportion

Considering the rivalry was expecting: Death/serious injury.


I am not impressed.

Yeah I think the worst thing is an entire team going out and assaulting the other teams coach and engaging in group activities with a young female family member...

I do know why they did it though... I got diagnosed with stress when I was in Australia for missing home when I went out there for a month so I know it's tuf living the other side the world

You Brits are softer than dog poo

Still "the worst thing ever" is pretty strong.

Dog poo goes hard in the sun. It's VERY sunny in Australia.

Lol, well played.

As far as the worst thing happening goes I think Dana was referring to them leaking results. He mentioned that during his little rant. I was expecting someone getting killed or setting the house on fire or something of that nature though.
