The Ultimate Fighter: US vs. UK episode 7 recap

As the episode starts viewers are treated to seeing Team US fighter Richie Whitson’s herpes-like sore on his lip as he talks to his housemates about it and they spray disinfectant around the house to prevent the spread of the funk. He assures viewers it is not herpes.

Team UK worked out with sledgehammers, swinging them over head and hitting tires. One of the guys miss the tire completely and puts a hole in the expensive mat. Another fighter misses the tire and hits the concrete floor. David Faulkner apparently hit his leg with the sledgehammer and now the injury has become infected.

Coach Dan Henderson said he doesn’t know what’s going on with Jason Pierce. Team US assistant coach Cyrille Diabate said Pierce has a negative attitude, then gives a speech to the team letting the guys know just like their bodies, their attitudes need training too. Pierce’s teammates also complain about his negativity.
