Ask the TUF Fighters

Wonder why welterweight prospect Kenny Stevens came onto the series twenty pounds overweight? Or why heavyweight Eli Joslin went through a lengthy audition process only to fold on the first day of taping?

Full Contact Fighter gives you your chance to ask the The Ultimate Fighter 2 competitors what’s really on your mind. Each week, we’ll interview that episode’s ejected fighter, getting the answers to your burning questions.
