The show featured a live fight between Team Cruz top draft pick Justin Lawrence and Team Faber’s third pick, Cristiano Marcello. Lawrence earned the victory, scoring a second round knockout. Dominick Cruz and his fighters are a perfect 2-0 through the opening two fights, as Urijah Faber‘s team has yet to claim a victory.
The debut of TUF 15 reached 1.3 million viewers while the second episode hit 1.1 million. This is the first season to feature live fights and also the first on FX, though ratings-wise the show has done as good or worse as previous incarnations.
The series will try to do better tomorrow night when Al Iaquinta of Team Faber takes on Myles Jury from Team Cruz.
