  1. Yes he did talk lots, mucho sheit, but hey thats the nature of the game. Like I said he was at a disadvantage because he was on Shams team. (pun intended)! All in all it came to controlling Rory on the floor, and he could not, and becasue he was tired from his lack of ROLLING SKILLS, and PRACTICE, he dropped those hands, and was taken out by a hugh kick to the head.

    I highly doubt that 4-5 weeks of missed rolling had anything to do with him dropping his hands. He broke the first rule of striking: always keep your hands up. If he has not figured this out yey, then he does not deserve to advance.

  3. What a tremendous b*tch that guy that left last night is. Its not even like hes a p*ssy, more like a reta*d. Made me sick to watch him make all the guys worry and then its some bull over a short term girlfriend. The guy asks him is your family hurt or something to that effect, and he says wheeping "it could be even worse". Hopefully they'll throw that cat on a UFN to get beatdown.

    Tis true, Always protect yourself I was told.

  5. To keep your conditioning up in MMA training you have to stay at it. You would be suprised at how much taking it easy for a fews weeks will really screw up you cardio. The only way to stay conditioned for MMA is to ROLL and SPAR. (At least in my experience) You can be in great running shape and you'll still fatigue very easily. (It's a different type of conditioning)

    I also would have to agree that shamrock is totally screwing his team. I used to watch videos of kens lions den training and they seemed to train pretty hardcore. What were seeing on the ultimate fighter is a low testosterone shadow of his former self. Maybe he just lost the passion for it. JMO......

  6. Kens a douche, snaggles deserved to get spanked. I love nothing more than seeing people that talk mad sheit getting showed up. Its so gratifing. I dont dislike Rory, although he is kinda dorky. I gotta support my people, and there's nothin better than a dorky jew that can fight.

  8. sorry about the dub post. Damn Compters...

  9. Well I stumbled across this thread one day, having never seen any season of TUF, and I started watching. It has certainly been interesting, but this last episode, #6, I feel they went too far with the drama vibe.

    That douchebag Noah gets a letter implying his girlfriend thinks he is cheating on her, and thus he decides to pack his bags and quit.

    First of all, I thought he guys were supposed to be cut off from contact, how the hell does that letter make it to him. More over, how does a letter like that in a big manilla envelope make its way to him. I am sure they have emergency contact info for everyone, so the producers had to know it was not a serious situation. I think this was all done intentionally to create drama, and make it more reality series-esque. That letter should have never made its way to him, but someone in charge intentionally made sure it did so that some "interesting" situation would manifest itself. I don't know about you guys, but there was no fight that episode and that annoyed the **** out of me.


    Rogue Drone, I agree that the first season seemed a lot more serious. After the last TUF 3 episode I decided to see if I could find one from Season one. Sure enough the fighters and general atmosphere seems to be more focused on MMA and less on drama. Don't get me wrong, this latest season is still entertaining, but I hope they can keep it on track.

  10. I believe that they are allowed to receive letters. Whether or not this is only for emergencies, I'm not sure. The thing that I do know, having worked on a few reality shows, is that they CANNOT initiate ANY contact w/the outside world. They sign so many confidentiality agreements (as did I) because they don't want you spilling ANY secrets to anyone.
    As far as this season being more ridiculous than other seasons; that happens with just about every reality show. Just look at season 1 of The Real World. That was a REALLY interesting show with interesting people. Have you seen it lately? It's more like Girls Gone Wild than the interesting social experiment it once was.
    At any rate, the fact that what's his name left the show wasn't because of the letter, really. He knew he didn't have it in him and that was his way out. No one in their right mind, who believed that they had a shot at greatness, would do what he did. I think he saw an exit and took it.

    You're so right about the Real World. Season 1 was great, and then there were a few decent ones here and their, but the last 4 or 5 have been horrible. They have made up for it with there Real World vs Road Rules challenges(gauntlet or whatever). RW vs RR is no interesting social experiment, but its entertaining as hell. I see what your saying about Noah taking an easy exit, knowing that he didn't have it in him. Although I would've though beating Jesse would've boosted his confidence big time, as Jesse seemed to be one of the tougher dudes on the show. Who really knows I guess, either way he is an idiot and wasted a lot of peoples time and effort. He didn't even tell Tito he was leaving.

  12. Anyone catch tonight's episode? Josh vs. Tait

    I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. As hard as tait was trying to take Josh to the ground, Josh was trying just as hard to stay on his feet. I have to admit though, there were several times where Josh went to the ground that I thought Tait had him for sure. However, Josh truly stuck to his "never quit" attitude and after two rounds ended up winning by point tally.

    As impressive as I found Josh's ability to evade Tait's submissions, I still thought that Tait controlled 2/3s of the fight, and should have won.

    Never the less they both seemed like good guys. Shamrock is the real looser here, as he is out another fighter, 5-1 Ortiz leads....

  13. Yeah, I think Tait should have won if not a draw and an extra round. I think Danny is in trouble next episode, short fuse or whatever he calls himself is gonna run through him.

  14. Tait got robbed...I personally don't like the guy, but he controlled that fight. I think the scorecards show ho perception determines who wins. I understand that there are split decisions, but how can the score be 20-18 for both??

    They need to start getting older fighters to judge these because they actually know what to look for more than the average judge.

  15. I think the fight was too close to call. It should've gone to a third round. I hated Tait until his "farewell" speech. He seemed pretty gracious in defeat.
    Decision could've gone either way.
    I hope Danny (the "nice guy) beats that red haired dude...he's too full of himself...it seems those guys always seem to get beaten this season. Hopefully that'll continue

  16. I dunno fellas. Not only did I think that fight was way boring, I thought that Tait was a better fighter than that. Wow, I guess I judged that book by it's cover! I guess that's how he made his living as a bodyguard...he looks the part but damn, he sure was taking a lot of blows while standing. I think it should've gone to the 3rd round but I was so bored by the end of the 2nd, I didn't even really care.

  17. I think Tait was robbed too. He definitely seems to have a better chin than Josh. Josh got some good flurries in and defended takedowns pretty well, but he wouldn't have made it through another round.

  18. Tait couldnt finish...He had so many opportunities but was too tired at that point. He had to had that triangle locked atleast three times.

    And he did get knocked down from a punch once...

    It was too close IMO...shouldve had a third round. Tait wouldve taken it.

  19. That was a close fight. Tait was taking some shots, but none seemed to really do anything to him, but they were connecting.

    Either way, GO Mat Hamill!!!!!!!!!

  20. Does anyone remember Shamrock yelling anything during the fight except "Get him on the ground Tait"? Tito instructs his guys throughout the fights and Shamrock just screams the same thing over and over again. He's useless as a coach and in the corner.

  21. Yeah, but the thing is, if he would have gotten him on the ground instead of taking a bunch of punches to the face he would have won. He dominated Josh on the ground.

  22. Can't wait for "short fuses" fight. It'll be him and Kalib in the finals for the 185ers.

  23. Ed Herman dominated that fight ridiculously well.

    And you know, he did claim that he had a good jaw and with that first punch barely hurting him he blew right through that guy.

    On the other side, I think that his attitude of "I'll fight anybody" is funny as hell. It never hurts your career to say something like that in the fight game...but you better be pretty confident of your skills.

    vicious armbar btw, I thought with the angle and force there might be shoulderjoint damage from that in addition to elbows.

  24. danny was talking after the fight like he won...saying how tough he was and how he showed everyone that he had what it takes. he landed one punch early and was dominated after that. maybe he thought it was a moral victory for not getting ktfo.

  25. Yeah, the guy that lost was a joke. I don't know what the hell he was talking about at the end. But really, did you guys think that "the Ginga Ninja" did so great? I mean the end result justifies the means but I don't know, his skills didn't seem all that sharp to me. Normally, I'd say that it was becasue he's still an amateur and whatnot but he was talking so much crap. I was expecting him to run right through this guy and be done in seconds. I'll have to watch it again.
