    The Ultimate Fighter


    Have any of you been watching The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV? I watched the first two episodes and decided to Tivo it. Looks like it's going to be a good show. Here's the link if you want to check it out.

    I've wanted to check it out, but starting a show @ 11 on a weekend night is a little too late for me. I may start recording it. I hear it's pretty good.

    Yeah, okay...I remember seeing the preview for the NFL games too, definately a good watch.

    Although I don't remember the BB"ers being teens? nonetheless....

    Yeah, I'm loving the show. The fights are definitely gonna be sweet, but I have a feeling the cocky guy (Chris Leben) is actually gonna hold his own pretty damn well. He looked really good in the footage against Mike(?) on their match a few months before the show started. And I used to train (will be training again if Bobo continues to whip my ass back into shape) with some various MMA competitors, signed and unsigned... two guys actually knew and fought a few of the guys on the show, and both said they've seen Chris fight in a few matches, real good in all of 'em. Plus, he's on Randy's team... and Randy's team just has to win

    Anyone watch last nights show? Some pretty funny ****. Kind of reminded me of the **** that went on in the barracks on a friday night, especially after a long field op. Should be a good fight next week.

    Last night was a good episoed. Wish they had made it into a 2 hour one. They want to hook you for the ratings next week. It worked for me. A stand up fight will be good to see, Last week was short when Diego(?) got that rear naked choke hold. I was hoping for a longer match.

    In the beginning, I hated Leben. But now, I'm growing to like him. I find that I'm hoping that he'll kick Josh's ass next week. He's a cocky bastard, but definitely keeps the show interesting and he certainly is a team player now. I was laughing when he planned on losing the challenge just so he could take Josh out and handicap Lidell's team....and then they changed the rules on him. He was so pissed

    I have Comcast and although the first showing is at 11:00, it shows again on Sat at 7:00 and Sun at 5:00. So check your local listings to see if there are earlier replays.

    Actually I was laughing at Leben's crying ass. He was playing pranks and intimidating others but he can't take the same. Leben's got a much better MMA record so I'll expect him to win although Koscheck looks good. Koscheck is definitely the best conditioned of everyone in the house being a D1 college wrestler.

    Pretty disappointed to say the least. Josh just went for the take down and layed there on top of Chris not doing much of anything. He held back way too much IMO. He had plenty of oppurtunities to tap out Chris. And Chris who was supposed to have a "great" left hand looked pretty weak. I was waiting for a KO blow, but it never came. Chris pussed out.

    Very disappointing fight. Chris was respecting Josh way too much, which allowed Josh to run the match at his pace. Was Josh smart by doing so? Maybe. He got the win, and suffered no injuries. However, I don't think he has what it takes if he were to go against, say, Diego, or a person who can wrestle and punch. I believe if Chris would have been more aggressive, and taken the fight to Josh, it would have been a different story. I was hoping for a round three, but I don't know if it would have helped Chris.

    That was a VERY anticlimactic fight! Maybe Leben was trying to control his temper and take his time. I know he's a stand up fighter, but I expected a little better take down defense and at least some ground game from someone with his experience. Koscheck fought like a wrestler and held his own against a much more experienced opponent.

    I was SHOCKED that Leben went out like that. Way to much respect for a guy with no power. If he went after him in the first minute of the fight, it would have been over. Instead, he let Koshcheck get past his initial jitters and get into his game plan. Huge mistake.

    Very good fight. I didn't think it was as close as everyone thought it was. I tought that Stephan was clearly the winner.

    I think that they are bringing back a middleweight to replace the guy who is hurt. I am not even going to attempt to guess.

    Last night was the best fight yet. Action throughout most of it. I feel that it should have went another round. I don't believe there was a clear winner. Round-1 to Bobby and Round-2 to Stephan.

    I think they are going to bring back Lodune. At least that's who I'd like to see back. They seemed to like him. However, I can see the need to bring back a middle weight.

    yeah, last night was good, that's what mma should look like. I thought round one was a draw, but Stephan had Bobby on the run most of the second round. Bobby is tough, and I know he said he didn't get hurt, but he was clearly keeping his distance from Stephan. I thought Josh (was that his name?), the guy who switched teams, was acting like a little sullen bitch about it!

    Common problem for wrestlers and fighters. It is known as "cauliflower ear" and is caused by trauma to the ear.

    A good piece of advice I follow -- if you ever want to pick a fight with a guy with messed up ears, think twice. Then proceed if necessary...

    Dude...Diego's da' man for his weight class. I can't remember the dudes name he fought, but he punished him, and got the submission for $5,000.00 once again. The other guy never even got a punch off.

    I liked when the guy challenged Diego, then apprached him to talk about it, saying it wasn't personal or anything. Diego gave him the look like he was all business...which he was. Diego doing his yoga in the parking lot while a lightening storm was overhead, saying he was channeling its energy into himself, is why I like this dude.

    Then they bring back Chris to stir up some controversy.

    Hell of a groundNpound, especially from a submissions guy! That was brutal. Like someone on the show said, maybe Diego's sending a message, fight me and you WILL get hurt.

    The guy Diego fought was Josh Rafferty, he's from Cincy. He made a mistake of calling out Diego, could've fought better. He was at the Hook N Shoot March 4th in Columbus, in my boy's corner. Rich Franklin was there as an honorary rederee for a couple fight and a judge in others, who's fighting Ken Shamrock , supposedly on the final episode of The Ultimate Fighter. Rich trains with my buddy Nick who was fighting at the Hook N Shoot. MMA is a great sport. Here's some pics I found online of my boy- Nick Ollberding, they spelled it wrong. They don't even have the person he fought correct.

    I trained at a few Gracie academies, but now school takes too much time. With a background in Thai and training in BJJ, you shouldn't worry about one on one fights with your average joe.

    I never worry about fighting outside of a ring anymore. Now that I have a family, the legal and financial penalties would be too much to deal with. Sometimes its better to swallow your pride, not pull someone out of their car and knee them in the head until you hear their scull crack

    j/k I really am a mellow guy, I think all of the MT has help keep my frustrations under control.

    In case anybody is in the Atlanta area and you are looking for a place to train, these are the two places that I have worked out at.
