Yeah, doubtful that drugs did that to him. Burnett looks like he got his ass kicked 24/7/365. Good guy, I was sad to see him go. Anyone have any predictions yet? I'm thinking Lytle, and Lutter.

I dont think that's a fair assessment. Couture and GSP are there as coaches only. I would bet that 99% of footage with them is on the cutting room floor.Originally Posted by pistonpump
In the first three TUF's there was almost nothing in the way of coaching footage shown. It was the actual fights and all the drama stuff; TUF 4 is no different. They probably don't want to be providing free MMA tips or be liable for injury by airing coaching footage.

I came across one of the spoilers by accident. I'll keep my trap shut in case it's accurate.Originally Posted by Alexander

He's like all the Lion's Den fighters, they were really good back then, and everyone else progressed and they didn't progress much. He's still as much of a beast, just Din Thomas is waaaay better then anyone he was fighting back in 97 or whatever.Originally Posted by pistonpump

I will have to politely disagree about GSP being there for the exposure/$. I remember watching his first big PPV against Karo and he has done nothing but make a name for himself since then...that was about three years ago. I doubt there are many MMA fans that don't already know who he is. I'm not knocking you bro, that's just my opinion.Originally Posted by pistonpump

LOL...I have to agree about Burnett. Nice guy but damn he has a mean eye twitch.Originally Posted by Alexander

Yeah, I was pulling for him, but he was just out matched. What do you guys think about this year in comparison to the past two years? I was against the concept at first, but I have been surprised with how much I have liked this season. Shonie Carter cracks me up and I love it that some of the guys "get" his character and what he is doing IE Matt Serra.Originally Posted by dagecko

I don't doubt that. And the fact that English isn't his first language can't help any.Originally Posted by pistonpump

I was pulling for Burnett, but you could tell that he wasn't going to win. He's missed too much time and may not have the fire he used to have as one of you said. It's weird that he went home too. The other guys who lost have stayed around to train.
He should have probably won the title against Millitech back in the day. All Millitech did was tie him up and try to neutralize him causing it to be terribly boring.

He wasnt in nearly as good of shape as he was before. Could be age or just lack of training.Originally Posted by jas123
So...Matt Serra's fighting this week? Cant remember when TUF plays, anyone?

It first airs Thursdays at 10pm and then replays on Saturday nights (I believe at 10pm as well).Originally Posted by pistonpump

This thread has kind of died...is anybody still watching TUF4?
I thought Serra was going to get knocked out last night, but he recovered pretty quickly...and that stuff with Franklin was funny...I don't think he meant his advice quite the way that Serra took it.
09-29-2006, 10:39 AM
Yeah that was weird advice. Maybe they edited to make Franklin look worse. I'm surprised they made their posterboy look like an ass, though. The knee Serra took on the takedown looked pretty hard. I thought he might have been out too, but kept going like a champ and it was all over on the ground.

Yup, by GNP. Spratt got in a few good shots, but once it went to the ground Spratt was done for... Serra just teed off while he covered up on face down. It was not pretty, but it was a win.
09-29-2006, 05:00 PM
Serra is one funny motherf*cker. The way he handled that advice had me laughing out loud. Franklin really looked like a douchebag on the show, but that really means little. I love this show, best season IMO.

I was adamantly agains the preface of this season, but I decided to watch it anyways...I will have to agree that it is the best one yet.Originally Posted by Alexander

No doubt about it I wasn’t sure how this season would be but I am really enjoying it. I thought Franklin was funny as hell. I mean dropping to a knee so he can’t kick you. That’s a good one.
Also he could have felt a little weird around a bunch of guys some of whom he knows giving advise

I haven't seen enough of Lutter to make a strong assertion, but many people think that Linland could take out Silva and Lutter seems to have a similar style to Linland. What do you guys think about Lutter's chances against Silva if he wins the TUF finale?
Edit: Looks like Bisping's off the TUF Finale Card. UFC® : Ultimate Fighting Championship®
It's floating around the mma forums too that there was a visa issue or something.
