Meet 'The Ultimate Fighter 26' cast: Emily Whitmire, who used a fake ID to make her unplanned MMA debut

LAS VEGAS – “The Ultimate Fighter” returned last week for 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 Emily Whitmire (2-1), who discussed how she got her start in MMA on a random Wednesday night in the Pacific Northwest with the help of a fake ID and a little liquid courage, why she’s technically homeless, how she’s ready to take her day job and shove it, and more.

“The Ultimate Fighter 26,” featuring former UFC and Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez and former WSOF champ Justin Gaethje as coaches, airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FS1.
