“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 Rousey’s Davey Grant beat Louis Fisette to even the team score at 2 wins each. The win also kept Team Rousey in control of the next fight pick, which they used to match Jessamyn Duke against Team Tate fighter Raquel Pennington in what is billed as, “the most intense battle of the season”. TUF airs each Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Fox Sports 1.
