On tonight’s episode of TUF 26, Emily Whitmire of Team Gaethje meets Christina Marks of Team Alvarez! Will Whitmire, who suffered a rib injury earlier this season, emerge victorious or will the athletic striker in Marks advance in the tournament?
Round 1: Miesha Tate is in the corner of Emily. The bell rings and Emily rushes forward. She manages to secure a takedown on Christina. Marks begins scooting her way toward the cage. She licks off the cage and they scramble but Whitmire goes for the back of Marks. Marks’ arm is exposed as she attempts to scramble and Whitmire attacks the arm. Whitmire gets the arm bar sub! She advances in the tournament!
Also on tonight’s episode, Lauren Murphy and coach Eddie Alvarez got into an explosive argument that resulted in Murphy “quitting” Team Alvarez and moving to train with Gaethje.
