The Ultimate Fighter 17 episode 2 recap: Barnatt vs. Smith

With Coach Chael Sonnen getting the privilege of picking the first fighter for his team in episode 1, Jones got the privilege of being able to pick the first fight.

The beginning of the training session shows Rampage taking time to work on Kimbo’s weak points. One thing, from the show that I think more and more people will start to realize, as the show goes on is 1) Kimbo might not be the guy he has commonly been portrayed to be, and 2) That he really does want to learn how to be a mixed martial artist.
