TUF 16 fighters Dom Waters and Mike Ricci join MMAWeekly.com each week to give their thoughts on the latest episode of the Ultimate Fighter.

This week both fighters look back on fight selections and drawing straws.

Dom Waters weighs in on his thoughts from Team Nelson:

To start the show off this week, we had Joey “Boom Boom” (Rivera) and Team Nelson celebrating his great win against Sam Alvey.

I was excited to see who was going to fight the next one, and Roy just had us pull straws. That didn’t workout too good for me.

Julian Lane won with the shortest straw, and he picked Bristol (Marunde) to fight against, I know Roy was a bit concerned about his cardio.

Dana had an announcement so we went into the other room and he told us we were going out to see “Here Comes the Boom”, we were all excited to get out the house and see a movie.

Julian didn’t have a hard time cutting weight, he is normally a 155er. Fight time he seemed ready to go.

1st round it was a lot of clinch work and he bloodied Bristol up a bit but it seemed Bristol got the best of him, 2nd round was more of the same with Bristol taking the 2 round dec, and getting control back for Team Carwin.

Afterwards Julian was very sad in the locker room. Everyone else on our team was just saying make sure our weight is good because you never know who they will pick.

Mike Ricci gives his thoughts from Team Carwin’s side:

What a great fight between Bristol and Julian!!

It was full of big strikes from punches to knees to low kicks. Bristol’s experience technique and conditioning made it a lop sided affair.

Julian was considering picking me instead of Bristol well either way there are no easy fights in the house.

It was sad seeing Julian break down after the fight but that’s the game there will always be one winner and one loser. Things seem to be a little calmer in the house this week but that won’t last.

So with the win it’s puts Team Carwin back in control and Carwin’s approach to who fights will be a lot more strategic than drawing straws.
