Ok, I'm not a gambling guy. From how I understand it... For every 100 points I put on Nover I stand to gain 415 if he wins. Is that correct?

So did Efrain. And don't say Shane Nelson isn't, he is.

Shane Nelson and Junie are miles ahead of Roop and Kaplan.

Are either of them good? no. But they are worlds better then the guys Efrain beat.

Junie & Shane ARE miles ahead of Roop & Kaplan. The finals should be Junie vs. Nover. You can say Junie & Nelson are bums, but you're straight up wrong. Again, it all goes back to what I said about insufficient training. Mir is not a coach, he sucks training and doesn't care.

THE RED TEAM had such an unfair advantage this season it wasn't even funny. Not only Noguerra, but they had ANDERSON SILVA on there as they're "assistant coach" the whole season, the show tried to make it out as a guest coach but he didn't leave, he was on there the whole time training them. The red team had atleast 2 good coaches and the blue team didn't have 1 coach. It was just ridiculous this season, Junie, Nelson, and the rest didn't come close to their potential b/c of their coaching, and the red team went well beyond theirs b/c of Silva & Nog.


(my 1st trial sig, any advice/help for the next one would be greatly appreciated)

FAVORITE FIGHTERS:
1. MICHAEL BISPING has been since day 1 of TUF 3
2. Matt Wiman
3. Urijah Faber
4. Joe Lauzon
5. Junie Browning

First off the blue team had Robert Drysdale who has better BJJ then anyone on team Nogueira.

Miles ahead? Junie took Roli to a split decision and apparently Shane Nelson took George Roop to a split decision. While yeah, Junie/Shane are a tad bit better fighters, they're still bums and aren't worlds better.

I wouldn't say Junie and Nelson are bums not great fighters but undercard fighters.

Roop and especially Kaplan aren't that much IMO.

Well, obviously I was wrong. Kudos to those of you who predicted Escudero's win. It sure wasn't an exciting or even dominating fight, just a "victory." Did he take the easy way out? ..Yes Did he do the smart thing? ..Well, it can be argued. He did JUST enough to win the contract and money and didn't take much of a chance, he went in with the gameplan of laying around on him and taking him down to win point wise and "get in there & get out," money made, deal done. But it can be argued, quite persuasively, that if he had gone in there and stood up swinging (or even some action-packed ground-n-pound) then though he would've taken a bigger chance, if he had won he would have gotten a lot more popularity and fights in the future. People want to see exciting fights, its a fact, he got the "win", the money, & the contract BUT....

I guarantee you Junie Browning will have a much more fruitful and succesful career due to his performance tonight compared to Efrain's. He'll get bigger & better fights almost right off the bat.

ALSO, Junie sure looked like the bum he was tonight, huh?

Guaranteed huh. That just means he will get beat down faster if he gets bigger and better fights. I would personally love to see him thrown to the wolves.
