Meet 'The Ultimate Fighter 26' cast: DeAnna Bennett, who used water polo to get to MMA

LAS VEGAS – “The Ultimate Fighter” returned Wednesday night with its 26th season, which will culminate with the crowning of the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion.

MMAjunkie recently sat down with all 16 cast members. Watch the video above to get to know DeAnna Bennett (8-3), who discusses her early days playing water polo and how that led to high school wrestling, which eventually led to MMA; her background in California and the differences to her current Utah base, and more.
