CAUTION: SPOILERS INCLUDED – The first bantamweight elimination bout of the second round is on tap on this week’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller. Who will move on?

Team Miller breaks the tension of practice with a little fun in the UFC Training Center to open things up, but as this is going on, Team Bisping’s coaching staff decides to respond to last week’s prank that was played on them by taking all four tires off Miller’s car. Miller takes the prank well, but he promises that things are just getting heated up.

“It has just begun,” said Miller. “Well done.”

Team Bisping’s sparring sessions are pretty intense, and things quickly get out of control, forcing coach Bisping to get involved to break up Marcus Brimage and Diego Brandao.

“Diego is definitely a bit of a ticking time bomb,” said Bisping. “He’s so emotional it’s ridiculous. But I’m an emotional guy too, so I can relate to that.”

Back in the house, Akira keeps his teammates entertained with his antics and various pranks, but the next day there’s some fight business to take care of, and with Team Miller in control of the board, they choose Johnny Bedford to face Josh Ferguson, and things quickly go to a whole new level when Ferguson writes “$%^% you Bedford” on a piece of paper and shows it to his foe.

“I felt like I was in the middle of a country-western bar about to get stabbed,” said Miller.

The showdowns aren’t finished yet though, as Dustin Neace has finally had enough of Akira’s antics, and he takes it out on Corassani’s bed. Corassani confronts Neace and a rivalry is born.

Also adding to the intrigue is the alliance started by Ferguson, Louis Gaudinot, and John Dodson. Dodson, of Team Miller, tells Team Bisping’s Ferguson that his opponent, Bedford, is coming into the fight with an injured hand.

Bedford is clearly favoring his right as the bout begins, as he almost exclusively uses his left hand after taking Ferguson to the mat. While standing, Bedford also focuses on using his left hand and his kicks, but since it’s working well for him, there are few concerns. With a little over a minute left, Bedford almost locks up an armbar, but Ferguson escapes and gets back to his feet. A final takedown before the bell locks up the round for the Team Miller member.

There’s more of the same in the second round, with Ferguson giving a scrappy effort, but Bedford just one step ahead of him in all aspects of the game, allowing him to take the unanimous decision and move on to the next round.

Team Miller takes a 2-0 lead in the competition. Here’s how the teams look:
