In the 7th Episode of the Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, Team Silva is not happy with Team Belfort being up 5-0. And now Gasparzinho has to fight Rony Jason Bezerra, even though the two are friends, but Team Wandy’s fghter (Rony) feels better about this than Gaspar. It’s interest because, as you’ll recall, Gaspar has been the troublemaker all season. Rony actually decided to go into fighting even when he had the chance to go into a career in law.
The two friends fighting creates some interesting discussion in the house, but the fight is set. Rony had to get naked at weigh-ins, but he did make weight. Team Belfort is going for 8-0, and Werdum encourages Team Wandy to deface the picture of Belfort in the gym. (Belfort’s team is more concerned about this than he was.)
In another fun twist, Belfort tells his team that Dana White will allow him to replace unmotivated fighters. It actually looks like this was Belfort’s idea, but all of his guys are now working harder and explaining why they deserve to stay. One has to wonder whether or not Belfort made this whole thing up, but there is a tendency to get complacent after a series of wins, so maybe that has something to do with it?
In the fight, Rony defeats Gaspar via 1st round armbar. After the fight, Wandy expresses his anger at Vitor making two friends fight, and is astounded when Belfort said he didn’t know the two were friends.
Anyway, it’ll be interesting to see if the tide turns next week now that Wandy’s team is in charge.
