After seeing viewership drop to a six-figure number for the first time in series history a week ago, this past Friday’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 15 was a little better received, giving hopes the series might still recapture its former glory.

By all accounts the program was one of the finest in the series’ storied history, featuring an excellent mixture of drama, heartbreak, and MMA action. Things started out with the fighters’ reactions to moving into the house, celebrating with a handful of adult beverages before settling in for the night
