Storyline

Chandler is greatly appreciated by his boisterous boss Doug, but finds it unsettling to receive the highest praise in the form of systematical swatting of his posterior, to the point of its pain and his colleagues' envy... Millionaire Pete chose as his new challenge after business to 'conquer' the brutal martial art of Ultimate Fighting, but despite an expensive entourage his confidence is so obviously and utterly misplaced that Monica can't watch his physical pain and public humiliation, even makes a breaking point of his persistence... Rachel gave her blessing to Phoebe presenting Ross with her friend Bonnie as date, without realizing she's no longer eerily bold, in fact quite to Ross's taste... Written by KGF Vissers

The One with the Ultimate Fighting Champion
16 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Pete decides to become an ultimate fighting champion, for Monica's despair. After having his first fight and stayed all hurt, Monica asks Pete to stop with this goal, but he refuses to listen to her.

Chandler stays angry with his boss, who has the strange and inconvenient habit of slap his butt all the time.

Phoebe introduces Bonnie to Ross,after having Rachel's consent. Rachel thought that Bonnie was bald, but in fact she is is very beautiful and with a lot of blond hair.(She was bald in the past) To make Rachel even more upset, Ross enjoyed Bonnie's company a lot.

Monica and Pete break up, since Monica cannot agree to see her boyfriend being beaten up all the time.
