Episode 3 of “The Ultimate Fighter 28: Heavy Hitters” opens with focus on Team Whittaker’s Anderson Da Silva , who meets Team Gastelum’s Justin Frazier in the second heavyweight quarterfinal later in the episode. Da Silva was the first overall pick in the competition, and that’s likely due to his decorated kickboxing background. The veteran of GLORY and various other kickboxing organizations is working to adapt his skillset to MMA, and head coach Robert Whittaker is mentoring him on how to best implement and effective strategy on fight day. The terrifying Silva is essentially the antithesis of Frazier, who was the last heavyweight pick from head coach Kelvin Gastelum and has already been struggling in the competition. The American has had to cut some training sessions short because he’s not in proper shape, and getting himself as prepared as possible is a key element to his pre-fight preparation. Coach Gastelum says he’s impressed with how Frazier is looking in the lead-up to the fight.
