“Women’s MMA Today” gets you caught up on the week that was and the week that will be in women’s MMA.

—TUF News—

In last week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter, Team Tate looked to extend their 2-0 lead by matching MMA veteran Roxanne Modafferi against multi-time boxing champion Jessica Rakoczy, however it was not to be as Rakoczy picked up the TKO victory after a second round powerbomb followed by unanswered strikes. The much needed win would now put Team Rousey in control of the fight picks and they would choose Davey Grant to face Team Tate’s Louis Fisette. TUF airs each Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Fox Sports 1.
