In Episode 5 of The Ultimate Fighter 18, Team Rousey tries to even the score with Team Tate at two wins apiece. Team Rousey looks for its second win as it pits Davey Grant against Team Tate’s Louis Fisette.
In the beginning of Episode 5, Roxanne Modafferi tells Jessica Rakoczy, who defeated Modafferi in Episode 4, that although she is disappointed about her loss, that she is glad that she lost to a person like Rakoczy. The two fighters embrace. Despite the mutual respect, Modafferi hides in the backyard of the TUF house to cry.
With Rakoczky’s win, Team Rousey has one win against Team Tate’s two wins. Team Rousey decides to match Grant against Fisette, who has joined Team Tate as an alternate.
In the TUF house, fighter Anthony Gutierrez is asked who the weakest fighter is in the house. Gutierrez points at Fisette, who is the only fighter in the house who did not beat anyone to get into the house. Fisette is offended.
To help Grant and the rest of her team, Riverside County’s Ronda Rousey brings her mother, Ann Maria Demars, to the TUF training facility. Having won the 1984 World Judo Championships in 1984, Rousey’s mother has plenty of advice for members of Team Rousey. Later, she goes inside the TUF house and meets Grant, who has been trying to cut weight for his fight against Fisette. Grant talks to Demars and reveals that he has two sons with his fiancee. Demars gives Grant words of encouragement as he prepares for his fight.
In the first round of the fight, Fisette tries to avoid Grant’s striking and attempts to take the fight to the ground. Grant is able to get a takedown of his own. The round ends with Grant punishing Fisette with ground strikes.
In the second round, Grant takes down Fisette and mounts him. Grant then takes Fisette’s back and finishes Fisette with a rear naked choke.
After getting its second win, Team Rousey matches Jessamyn Duke against Team Tate’s Raquel Pennington.
