“The Ultimate Fighter” reality show is under way. It is my second-favorite reality show next to “Dual Survival”! We are very lucky because one of our local boys, Julian  Erosa, is on “Ultimate Fighter.” The first episode was Wednesday (Sept. 9) and Julian kicked some serious butt to advance into the house!

Love this kid from Yakima! Julian is one tough cookie!

“The Ultimate Fighter” is such an awesome show, especially if you love to see people throw down. It is great because it is pro, but unknown fighters are getting a shot to hang with the best!
