David Grant vs. Louis Fisette

Tonight’s fight is David Grant vs. Louis Fisette.

After losing, Roxanne Modafferi told Jessica that didn’t want to lose, but if she had to lose, she’s glad it was to her. This girl is the ultimate babyface. After crying for a bit, she started laughing, almost maniacally. She says she needs to still be the happy warrior.

Both Grant and Fisette really like each other. Fisette understands that he wasn’t supposed to be here and got another shot.

Raquel Pennington says that she’s a gay athlete and her mother took it hard. Her pops was cool about it.

In a game of Truth Or Dare Anthony Gutierrez called Fisette the house’s weakest link because he tapped and still got into the house.

Grant had to cut 13 pounds before weigh-in.

Ronda’s mom, Dr. Ann Marie Demars came in to help train ground work. Part of Ronda’s reasoning to bring her in was to show her team where she got her intensity from.
