The guys make their way into the house for the first time noticing the banners and decorations for Team US and Team UK. Both teams arrive at about the same time. They introduce themselves and instantly find the difference among themselves very funny. Santino Defranco finds David Faulkner even though his accent makes it hard to understand what he is saying. Ross Pearson, Brit fighter finds Rob Browning funny because he keeps saying dude.
Outside a couple of the guys play basketball but their pleasure is ruined when Rob Browning starts throwing eggs.
Rob gets into a vocal confrontation with one of the English fighters but nothing happens. Jason Pierce takes offense to Rob urinating in a shower. Rob goes to confront him. He begs Jason to hit him. When he refuses, Rob cracks an egg on his shirt. Thus Rob is insulting both Team UK and Team US.
The guys agree that Rob needs to be the first one out of the house. The festivities come to an end. The fighters train the next day for upcoming two fights in Team US for the new alternates: Kyle Reed and Rob Browning.
Mark Miller, Damarques and Dan Henderson talk about how great Team US and that they will beat Team UK. Michael Bisping arrives on the house. He goes to get coffee and is amused by Team USA's confidence. He engages in playful banter with the guys.
Michael Bisping now trains with Team UK. He is surprised by how aggressive his team is sparring with him and each other.Ross Pearson talks about USA's boast and says they are in for a shock if they are just going to breeze through each other.
Jason Dent talks about his fight with Rob. He says he knows everyone wants Browning out of the show. Kiel Reid is excited about his fight and takes it seriously. He says he no job to go so fighting is his calling. Frank Lester talks about being a former US soldier and how important this fight is against Kiel. Kiel says Lester isn't as mean as he is and he doesn't want it.
Up next is the fight with Kiel Reid and Frank Lester for a spot in Team US.
In Round 1, the two fighters stall and then grapple on the mat near the last seconds of four minute mark. The two jockey for position. Then around the the 2:45 mark applies a strong guillotine choke to Frank. Frank, however, is tough and manages to fight out of it.
He lands a solid right hand then a kick but Kiel stops his momentum by grappling with him again. This time Lester has positioning on him. Keil tries to grab Lester's legs while Frank tries a Kimura.
In a surprising twist, as Kiel tries to slam Frank, he knocks himself out, albeit for a few seconds. The guys see Kiel briefly pass out so the referee stops the fight after Frank continues with the Kimura.
The guys are disappointed with the outcome as they all agree that Kiel beat himself in the fight. The only who thinks otherwise is Frank. Kiel and Frank engage in trash talk with Frank still claiming that he beat Kiel when in reality Kiel beat himself.
The next fight is Rob Browning. vs. Jason Dent for a spot in Team US.
The first two minutes of the fight is a long sparring match between the two. Each fighter delivers their strikes but don't give up the big hit. However, near the two and a half mark, Jason starts to show his domination on Rob. He has Rob on the mat and continues to punch away at him while all Rob does is just cover up. Jason delivers a couple of hard knees to Rob's ribs with again not much defense by Rob.. The onslaught continues to the 1: 28!!! The referee pleads to Rob to fight back but eventually stops the fight for the winner Jason Dent.
Everyone is happy to see Rob, Junie's Browning's brother go. Dana White congratulates the guys and now says he'll flip a coin each episode to give control of the chosen fight to whoever wins the toss. Team US wins the toss and they'll decide the upcoming fight.
