UFC Fighters Blind Date Episodes
Look for former UFC® Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia and four other UFC fighters as they appear as special guests on the popular television show Blind Date during sweeps week of Nov.15-19.
Sylvia, and UFC fighters Tiki Ghosn, Pete Spratt, Wes Sims and Josh Thomson each will be featured on a blind date with a woman they have never met.
Monday, Nov. 15, Pete Spratt and Andreina
Pete’s an Ultimate Fighter who has put his bad boy days behind him. Andreina’s an independent girl who doesn’t fall for cheesy lines. Will these two strong personalities knock each other out, or will they be an equal match for one another?
Tuesday, Nov. 16, Josh Thomson and Denise
Denise wants a guy who is as masculine as she is petite. Josh is an Ultimate Fighter with more experience in the ring than with the opposite sex. Will Josh’s old-fashioned attitudes appeal to Denise, or is his game of hard-to-get going to make him hard to want?
Wednesday, Nov. 17, Tiki Ghosn and Rebecca
Tiki’s an Ultimate Fighter who likes a girl to carry herself like a lady. Rebecca’s a part-time model who works at a Hooters Restaurant. Is she hiding a deep reserve of feminine mystique, or do her short skirts and belly shirts reveal all there is to know?
Thursday, Nov. 18, Tim Sylvia and Jennifer
Tim’s the Ultimate Fighting Champion who wants a girl who can hold her own with the guys. Jennifer’s got a weakness for bad boys, and claims she can drink anyone under the table. Will Tim’s affinity for girlie drinks be a turn-off for the Irish girl or is his strength of character enough to carry her interest?
Friday, Nov. 19, Wes Sims and Erika
Erika works in a sex shop, and likes spending time with guys who enjoy strip clubs. Is Wes an Ultimate Fighter with more brawn than brain? Will he be able to keep his foot out of his mouth when he finds out that Erika’s a former stripper, or will the girl from the wrong side of tracks have to teach her date some manners?
