TUF 18 post fight press conference

Two new Ultimate Fighters were crowned tonight in a fun night of fights. Julianna Pena dominated Jessica Rakoczy en route to a TKO finish in round 1. With that victory, she became the first ever women’s Ultimate Fighter. Chris Holdsworth submitted Davey Grant in Round 2 to become the Bantamweight Ultimate Fighter.

In the main event, Nate Diaz took it to Gray Maynard and TKO’ed him in the first round. It was an incredible performance by Diaz coming off a loss. That is two straight KO losses for Gray Maynard.

Overall, it was a solid night of fights for the UFC and the up and coming TUF fighters. In the video above you will see the post fight press conference where all the fighters from the main card will field questions from reporters. Of course, Dana White will be there as well fielding questions.
