Middleweight Chris Leben isn’t the only TUF contestant to insert bodily fluids into the equation but he’s definitely the first. As fans likely remember, Leben relieved himself on fellow fighter Jason Thacker’s bed. Worse yet, the incident came on the first night of taping, setting Leben up as a “bad boy” for years to come.
This week’s episode of the Ultimate Fighter 18 delivered a handful of eye-opening moments including, of course, a shocking upset win involving relative neophyte Julianna Pena submitting seasoned veteran Shayna Baszler. The fallout from the defeat sent Ronda Rousey into an emotional frenzy ranging from threats to rival coach Miesha Tate to tearful confessions to the TUF cameras. The entire episode was full of surprises, though fans might be accustomed to such being true regarding the groundbreaking reality show. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
