Video: Alex Volkanovski grapples with Brian Ortega’s snake on TUF 29

Alex Volkanovski has a new training partner to prepare him for Brian Ortega’s jiu-jitsu.

Alex Volkanovski gets a hand on jiu-jitsu lesson from Brian Ortega’s snake on season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF 29).

Ortega (15-1) continued his prank war against opposite head coach Volkanovski (22-1) on Tuesday’s episode (recap here) of The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) reality competition series. “T-City” called up a friend of his to deliver large snakes to Volkanovski’s dressing room. Volk’s team was startled by the slithering serpents, but Australia’s UFC Featherweight champion played along with the gag.
