TUF The Smashes Episode 5 opened after Team UK leveled the score at 2-2. Both teams returned to the house with the UK team celebrating the win.

“The Freak Show” decided he would deface another photo of George Sotiropoulos and gave the Australian coach a makeover.

The UK team had a competitive game of pool volleyball with the losing team having to a nudie run around the yard. Meanwhile, Team Australia began to get annoyed by the noise as they were looking to get some sleep.

A food fight erupted in the house between the UK teammates with food splattered all over the house. ”Why the Australian’s haven’t been acting up is because we have class,” Xavier Lucas said.

The UK team went for a pool session with the UK coaches bringing a female swimming outfit for “The Freak Show” to wear. The Australian team were left no option but to clean up the mess left by the UK team after their food fight before heading off to their gym session.

The teams came together for the fight announcement and UK coach Ross Pearson chose Bola Omoyele (UK) vs. Manny Rodriguez (AUS) in a welterweight bout.

UK’s Luke Newman returned to the house after having a brain scan and told coach Pearson that he has been referred to another brain unit. Newman said that because he’s under a forced medical suspension, he wants to go back home, as he’s not allowed to spar or grapple with his teammates.

“I know what you mean,” Pearson said. “But the UFC will see it as you walking away from a big opportunity. If I was you, I’d stay in the house.”

Newman was left to sleep on the decision and the UK trainers spoke with him in the morning. “There’s so much more you can do,” Pearson told Newman.

Newman made the decision to stay in the house.

Bola Omoyele made weight at 170.5 pounds, as did Manny Rodriguez.

Bola Omoyele (UK) vs. Manny Rodriguez (AUS):

Round 1- Omoyele opened with a head kick that was checked by Rodriguez. Omoyele went on the offensive, and a solid leg kick saw Rodriguez lose his footing and hit the mat. Omoyele moved to side control. After grappling for position, Omoyele landed with hammerfists before regaining the top position, but Rodriguez was finally able to get back to his feet and then took Omoyele to the mat. After locking in a North-South choke, Omoyele was forced to tap late in the opening round.

Manny Rodriguez def. Bola Omoyele via Submission (North-South Choke), Round 1 at 4:07.

“I let him off the hook,” Omoyele said. “He capitalized and did what he had to.”

“I’ve given up a lot of things to be here,” Rodriguez said. “Time away from my kids, that’s definitely the hardest part. The desire to succeed is a lot greater at the moment.”
