TUF Talk Episode 6: The surprise of victory, the agony of defeat

On the latest podcast of TUF Talk, Ultimate Fighter Nations coaches Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke discuss Sheldon Westcott's shocking performance to eliminate one of Australia's best hopefuls in four-time Olympian Dan Kelly.
Westcott entered the fight with a bum leg, but a lot of confidence and he took the fight to Kelly, finishing him in the first round via submission. The fallout from the loss was felt on the Australian's side immediately as the entire time rallied around their fallen friend while lashing out at the Canadians who celebrated at his expense.
Is it okay for a team to cheer victory for one fighter while the other team is mired in misery after the defeat of a close friend and teammate?
Noke and Cote both give their thoughts on this and preview the week ahead for the next matchup on TUF Nations.
