Tune into FS1 on Wednesday, June 14th at 10 PM ET/PT for episode 9 of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption, with coaches Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw.
An all-new episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption airs tonight (Wednesday, June 14th) at 10 PM ET on Fox Sports 1. Last week, Joe Stevenson got melted by a Hayder Hassan uppercut in the wild card matchup, sending Hassan to the quarterfinals. In the actual quarters, Tom Gallicchio defeated Justin Edwards by rear naked choke to make his way into the semis.
Tonight’s episode features the second quarterfinal matchup, as Team Dillashaw teammates Gilbert Smith (TUF 17) and Dhiego Lima (TUF 19) go to battle. Literally the only Team Garbrandt fighters left are the two dudes who beat up on Joe Stevenson. Anyway, you can discuss the show in the comments section, then Beau Dure will have a full recap on Thursday.
To keep you up to speed, here are the two sets of teams, with the winner taking home $250,000. The season finale is Friday, July 7th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
