The episode opens at the house in the aftermath of the Olivier and Jake's fights last week. As the victorious Olivier celebrates with poutine (how French Canadian of him) Jake is upstairs in his bed. He may be only 19 years old with a bright future ahead of him, but he's taking the loss hard. His teammates come to cheer him up, but it doesn't seem like their words are having much effect.
The focus then transitions to this week's matchup between Team Australia's Vik Grujic and Team Canada's Luke Harris. Vik knows that he has the biggest fight of his life ahead of him, but his mind is back on his family at home. He has a wife and three daughters, and the time away has been very difficult. He realizes that his career choice has placed a great strain on the family, but he hopes that his run on The Ultimate Fighter will change things. He wants to give them a certain lifestyle, and he sees the UFC as his chance to make that come true.
