With “The Ultimate Fighter 26” on hiatus this week, apparently for some sort of baseball contest, take a moment to reflect on what’s happened thus far with a few of the season’s cast members.
“The Ultimate Fighter 26: A New World Champion” debuted on Aug. 30 and features 16 competitors angling for an opportunity to become the inaugural UFC women’s flyweight champion.
Under the leadership of former UFC lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez and former WSOF champ Justin Gaethje, there are currently nine athletes left in the competition, including No. 1 seed Roxanne Modafferi, who scored a TKO win over Shana Dobson, as well as No. 8 seed Emily Whitmire, who meets No. 9 seed Christina Marks in the final opening-round contest of the season.
Modafferi, Dobson and Whitmire all participated in the panel discussion, which took place at UFC headquarters in Las Vegas. Additionally, No. 5 seed Maia Stevenson, who suffered a disappointing upset submission loss to Sijara Eubanks earlier this year, also joined the roundtable.
