So team Dos Santos is up 1-0. This episode starts off with Dos Sants's team doing a crazy cardio workout wearing gas masks and running on a treadmill. Dos Santos's fighters Keon Caldwell was having a difficult time keeping up with the workouts. And in the back of his mind which was the words of his daughter. Saying "please don't go". This ate away at him and he had to grab his coach Dos Santos. Junior gave him some words of confidence and he went back training. Dana made an appearance and also talked to Keon. Saying the usual do you want this? Do you want to b in the UFC? After the discusion with Dana, Keon went back to training and struggled. After the training sesion Keon decided to say goodbye to his team and coach, and to this opertunity. Now that's 2 fighters have left in the 1st 2 episodes. One from each team. Well now it's fight pick time. Dos Santos picked his 3rd round pick Javier Torres. And picked Brocks 2nd to last pick Chris Cope. Brock then had a meeting with his fighters saying " do you know what the term any given sunday means"? His semi-imsperational speech talking about how anyone can win a fight. Pumping Chris Cope up. Fight time. The bell sounds and Javier clinchs with Cope and pushes him against the fence. Where he preaty much kept him. Landing knees. Cope just didn't seem like he could get off the cage. And that was round one. Round 2 saw Cope landing some strikes and !avier clinching with him and pushing him into the cage again. Now you could tell Javier was starting to get tired. Cope was now able to turn off the cage and push off out of the clich. This happened a couple of times till the round was over. The judges declared to a draw. And they had to fight the sudden death round. It was just like the 2nd round only Cope was more controlling and landed more strickes. Winning him the decsion. The score is now 1-1. And team Brock has control of the picks. Not a great episode but not bad.
