Rose Namajunas finally broke the egg, giving Gilbert Melendez his first win as coach on The Ultimate Fighter 20 Wednesday night.
Namajunas defeated Alex Chambers from Anthony Pettis’ team, earning a first round submission via rear-naked choke. Namajunas, the girlfriend of former UFC fighter Pat Barry, moved into the quarterfinals along with Team Pettis fighters Carla Esparza, Joanna Calderwood, Jessica Penne, Aisling Daly, Felice Herrig and Randa Markos.
The final first round bout will air next Wednesday on FOX Sports 1, as Bec Rawlings represents Team Melendez vs. Tecia Torres. Torres was originally a teammate of Rawlings, but after being allowed back into the tournament as a replacement, she was moved to Pettis’ squad.
