Shayna Baszler Talks Strippers, Drunks and more TUF 18
(punchdrunkgamer.com)
Not sure if this is the right sub forum but here you go....

1. Did you participate in any of the little princess makeovers or fashion shows that Julianna Pena was organizing? Shayna Baszler - We were at practice when those things were happening, just Team Tate was at the house. So we didn’t even get to witness it first hand, we would come back from practice and hear all of the stories. I couldn’t believe that Raquel Pennington was doing that, she is the last person that would be putting on high heels and a dress. So yeah no, luckily I didn’t even have to make a choice of whether to participate. I think more than anything it showed you how desperate we all were in the house for any kind of entertainment. 2. Did Dennis Hallman hand out shorts from his personal collection for Team Tate fighters to wear at practice? Shayna Baszler - [laughing] I am sure you are talking about the sparring session they showed on the episode were Cody Bollinger is wearing some very colorful volleyball looking shorts. He actually stole them from Sarah Moras, she had an entire wardrobe of crazy colored and patterned compression shorts, and he stole them and showed up at practice like that to surprise everyone. So no they didn’t come out of Dennis Hallman’s personal collection but I like your thinking.

Five observations about TUF 18
(mmafighting.com)
Whenever the colors of the "Ultimate Fighter" franchise begin to bleed together a little bit the UFC gets to experimenting. Over the years we’ve seen the shake-ups: There was the live version. There was Kimbo Slice season, which produced the single most comical epiphany of all time ("The enemy is the inner me," realized the back-alley brawler). There was the invisible season (purportedly TUF 16, which nobody can confirm because nobody watched). And there was the "comeback" season, which regurgitated the likes of Shonie Carter and Matt Serra back into existence. This season -- the 18th -- is sort of being rolled out as an evolution. It’s the first time we’ve seen an elixir of women and men in the same house. That the women are part of the enterprise isn’t so much a movement for fistic equality as a long-overdue inevitability. And this was all made possible by current UFC champion Ronda Rousey, who made up for Dana White’s concerns regarding divisional depth by containing multitudes, star appeal and armbars...

Cung Le favors 'TUF' coaching over fighting, but Bisping still on his radar
(mmajunkie.com)
Cung Le said he's waiting to hear whether his next career move involves fighting or coaching. At the moment, he doesn't know which one it will be. Le (9-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC), who his past November knocked out ex-champ Rich Franklin, said he still wants to fight Michael Bisping. And until recently, he was under the impression he would do so. "Before [Bisping's] last fight, my camp was talking to (UFC matchmaker) Joe (Silva) about a potential matchup, and they said that if he wins, it looks good," Le told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "Next thing I know, two or three days ago, I saw that Bisping was going to fight in October in England...

The Ultimate Fighter 17 Episode 11 Recap: Semifinal Matchups Announced

Episode 11 of The Ultimate Fighter 17: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen featured the last two quarterfinal bouts and the announcement of the semifinal matchups. Having to face Uriah Hall in the quarterfinal round didn’t sit well with Team Jones’ Bubba McDaniel from the moment it was announced. Last week he was having trouble getting mentally prepared. In this week’s episode, McDaniel’s concerns turned to his physical state. “I’ve fought three times in a short time period now and I feel completely drained. Like, I’m pretty much just wanting to be asleep, and then my back has been hurting again too around my kidney area,” said McDaniel...

Team Sonnen's Kelvin Gastelum, meanwhile, thinks his opponents ares till underestimating his skills. He's paired up with Team Jones' Collin Hart, who's known as a jiu-jitsu specialist. Hart admits he wasn't satisfied with his opening-round win over Kevin Casey and wants to instead throw his hands and be exciting. Chael Sonnen seems to believe that would be fantastic, as he sees Kelvin as a brawler – not the wrestler most seem to believe...
