“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 Jessamyn Duke and Team Tate fighter Raquel Pennington engaged in a epic back-n-forth battle that would need a “sudden victory” round to decide the winner. Once the dust settled, the judges awarded Pennington the victory, giving Team Tate a 3-2 lead in the overall team score and more importantly, putting them back in control of the next fight pick. With that pick they choose Josh Hill to face Team Rousey’s Mike Wootten. TUF airs each Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Fox Sports 1.
