EPISODE TWO: "WHAT WE DO”
Las Vegas, Nevada – The Ultimate Fighter® Fridays episode two – "What We Do" – aired on FX on Friday evening and saw Team Carwin win the inaugural fight of the competition, as Neil Magny claimed a unanimous decision victory over Las Vegas native Cameron Diffley.
Magny said: “Winning was a big relief. To be able to get that first fight out of the way and enjoy the house felt good. The pressure was off and I actually got a good night’s sleep. I think the fight went well. I did a good job keeping the fight standing. I didn’t allow him to work his game and it worked out pretty good for me.”
The eliminated Diffley said: “I kept coming forward and attacking and was really trying to win the whole time. But I think this fight brought out some of the holes in my MMA game and some things for me to work hard and improve on to be a better fighter in my next fight. It was little depressing when I got back to the house after my loss, it took a little of the energy out of my team. But we knew we had to moved forward and get right back into the competition.”

Team Carwin (1-0)
Neil Magny (1-0, defeated Cameron Diffley by decision in episode 2)
