WOW, did figure that result ... I guess they gave rd1 to Cote ...which goes to show that sometimes the judges pay attention sometimes to work done from your back.

Voelker looked pretty impressive though.

Round 1 was a toss-up. So Cote winning isn't that much of a surprise. People always complain that judges give too much weight to top position. And now they complain because they didn't do just that in this fight.

Better question is how many plants are going to be with the women at 135.

But yeah Meisha Tate better win.

Lol come on guys, the decision wasn't a robbery. Voelker dominated the third, but Cote won the second. Voelker may have gotten a take down in the first, but Cote did more from his back than Voelker did on top. I think the third round is making people over react a little.

Haha, this TUF will be fun. What if a guy and a girl got the urge to hook up though? They spend a lot of time in that house after all.

Kinda meh on the decision. I scored it for Voelker but didn't think the fight was a robbery or anything. An I the only one who is really uncomfortable with a Co-Ed TUF?

Judges should score the final round of fights like that a 10-8 just because it is so obvious that so much more damage was done in that round then in any of the other rounds.

Volker had top control for a pretty significant amount of time in the first, but Cote both rocked him and did a lot of work off his back. I figured split decision I thought both early rounds where close enough someone would digress but I'm happy with the results.

Also let us just pray
