After a recap of Ben Alloway beating Valentino Petrescu, we see some outside hostility. Norman Parke is seen throwing the birds at Team Australia, much to the dismay of Xavier Lucas.

After that, UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos visited both teams. After visiting the two rival contingents, dos Santos proclaimed that the Aussies were more excited to see him and that he is grateful that both teams had the opportunity to meet him.

Michael Pastou, who suffered an arm injury, is removed from the house, leaving a lightweight position up for grabs. Brendan Loughnane, who is 5-0, takes his place and helps fill in the emotional gap that Bola Omayele missed when Pastou left.

Coach George Sotiropolous picked the fight, pitting Ben Wall against the opposing team’s Colin Fletcher. He picked him because he acts like a clown. Many of the British team call Wall by the nickname “Fox Piss,” which may be a motivating factor in the picking of the fight.

Both men make weight and are ready to go.

Ben Wall vs. Colin Fletcher

The first round consisted of much clinching and position fighting. Fletcher showed great takedown defense, as well as some ground-and-pound when he was on top. Fletcher easily earned a 10-9 round.

The second round was dominated by a clinch and knee attack by Fletcher. It was easily scored 10-9, giving “Freakshow” the win.

Official Result: Colin Fletcher def. Ben Wall by unanimous decision (20-18)

After the fight, Fletcher gave Wall credit for being tough.

Next week, we will see who is going to be the next to advance in this tournament.
