The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 Episode 2 Recap

In the season premiere episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs Team Koscheck, 14 fighters were identified as coming to the TUF house after each winning their elimination bouts.

In the second episode, they enter the TUF house  with a mad dash for others to claim their bedrooms while others went to the bar.

Focus immediately shifts to Jeff Lentz who goes on a smoking and drinking binge and Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres who went on to tell some tall tales.

The next day was the draft: coaches Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck finally get to select their fighters.

In a team meeting, GSP tells of his intention to pick Michael Johnson first but Kos might also pick him first if they won the chance for the first pick. So GSP devised a plan, he made a fake list with Marc Stevens at the top knowing that since he is Kos' buddy, Kos might pick him first if he sees GSP's list. After all, who wants to let go of a friend right?

At the draft, GSP let Kos peek on his fake list. When Team Koscheck won the coin toss, they selected Marc Stevens. GSP then picked Michael Johnson.

Dana White just says, "Well-played". That's the episode's title my friend.

The draft continues, and the teams include (in draft order):

Team Koscheck

   1. Marc Stevens
   2. Sevak Magakian
   3. Sako Chivitchian
   4. Andy Main
   5. Nam Phan
   6. Aaron Wilkinson
   7. Jeff Lentz

Team GSP

   1. Michael Johnson
   2. Jonathan Brookins
   3. Spencer Paige
   4. Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres
   5. Kyle Watson
   6. Cody McKenzie
   7. Dane Sayers

So, on to the first fight: it's Jeff Lentz vs Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres.

To cut it short, Alex Caceres defeated Jeff Lentz via submission (triangle choke) at 2:27 of round 2.

Caceres was actually surprised that Lentz have a good stamina with all that drinking and smoking.

At the end of Episode 2, it's Team GSP 1, Team Koscheck 0.

In The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 Episode 3, Mike Tyson visits the TUF training facility and  features one of the best fights of the season.

Watch it on September 30, 2010.

Here's the sneak preview.
