Yeah, Dean pretty much sucked on the show. Couldn't remember how he got beaten either, but it was by DaMarques Johnson via submission apparently. So at least he got beaten by a decent fighter, DaMarques has looked very good since his loss to Wilks at the Finale.
Just checked the BAMMA website to see how much demand there'd been for tickets, and it's been pretty mental. There are a few tickets left in the worst place in the arena, and a couple in the better areas, but it's almost entirely sold out. Tickets were pricey too, £150 if you wanted tickets in the decent part of the arena. Not a particularly stacked card either, other than the Watson-Reid fight, the only other notable names on the card are Seth Petruzelli and TUF Almuni Jeff Lawson. Really not worth paying out £150 for tickets.
Just seen the end of the first episode. Reid got submitted by Gracie 9 times in what can't have been longer than 10 minutes. He seemed to tap as soon as Gracie got a hold of him. Gracie moved his arm under Alex's chin to secure a rear-naked, and before he could even get close to sinking it in, Alex tapped. Then he got beaten up by 8 blokes in the MC Fighting demonstration, wasn't particularly impressive. The preview for the 2nd episode doesn't look great for Reid either. Looked like he was getting schooled by some Indian MMA fighter, before comparing himself to Gandhi. Brilliant.
