Underrated prospect Nicco Montano scored the biggest win of her career during tonight’s fourth episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” The talented flyweight, representing Team Gaethje, upset the heavily favoured Lauren Murphy of Team Alvarez via Unanimous Decision.

Team Gaethje increased its lead to 3-1 over Team Alvarez with Montano’s victory. She controlled the striking battles in both rounds of the bout tonight and thwarted all but one of Murphy’s takedown attempts. Montano was rewarded for her efforts and advanced on to the next round with the win.

Talented grappler Montana Stewart showcased her slick submission skills en route to a quick victory during tonight’s third episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Team Gaethje’s Stewart finished Team Alvarez representative Ariel Beck with a first-round Brabo choke.

Coach Eddie Alvarez tried to motivate and inspire Beck, who struggled with her confidence prior to the fight, and she fared well on the feet in the early striking exchanges. Stewart wisely took the fight to the mat, where she dominated the action until she was able to secure the fight-ending choke.

Former Invicta FC title contender DeAnna “The Argentine Assassin” Bennett won in quick and impressive fashion during tonight’s second episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Bennett, representing Team Alvarez, finished Team Gaethje’s Karine “The Princess” Gevorgyan.

Bennett’s victory evened the team competition at 1-1, following Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi’s stoppage win for Team Gaethje during last week’s premiere. Bennett took Gevorgyan down and dominated the action on the mat before finishing her foe with a barrage of ground and pound.
