Episode 6 of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate was billed as the most intense fight of the season, and it surely delivered. Team Rousey’s Jessamyn Duke took on Team Tate’s Raquel Penningston in a women’s bantamweight quarterfinals match up in a bout that was back-and-forth until the final bell.
It was a great bout that will help put women’s mixed martial arts on the map to those who had not previously paid attention and both women will watch their stocks soar and fan bases grow from the incredible display inside the octagon.
When it was all said and done, Pennington edged Duke in a sudden death round that put control of the fight picks back in Miesha Tate’s corner.
