On Saturday night, season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter came to an end as Team Tate’s Julianna Pena, who was the show’s No. 1 overall pick, and Jessica Rakoczy of Team Rousey stepped in to the octagon to determine who would be the first women’s champion in the show’s history.
After a dominating performance, Pena was able to stake her claim to the title as referee Mario Yamasaki stepped in to stop the action due to strikes with just one second remaining in the first round.
