“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—

Last week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter featured Team Tate teammates Julianna Pena and Sarah Moras facing off in the first women’s semi-final bout and unlike their first encounter in April 2012 in which Moras won via second round doctor stoppage, this bout was all Pena, winning via guillotine choke late in the second round. Pena now moves on to the finale and the chance to win the 6-figure UFC contact. On this week’s episode Miesha and Ronda compete in the coaches challenge, plus the second semi-final men’s bout as Team Rousey’s Anthony Gutierrez takes on teammate Davey Grant. TUF airs each Wednesday night at 10pm ET on Fox Sports 1.
