haha, thanks buddy


I think the selection of guys in smashes is a lot better. I think there is a lot of potential, especially in the UK guys like Norman, Freakshow, The guy who got his eye injured and Brendan.

I think The Aussie surfer guy could mak BW as well.


TUF 16, there is literally nobody in there, with the exception of maybe Ricci and Colton who i think deserves to be anywhere near the UFC... That, and the vast majority of them are total dicks. That Julian guy, what a tool.

Trust me, it's not because you're from the UK. The Smashes is a lot better than TUF 16.

Yeah, the fights are pretty terrible this season. It's kind of funny actually. They talk a load of trash to each other, but then when they actually get inside the octagon, most of them are content with just leaning each other against the fence and attempting to hold each other down waiting for the time to run out, and how about the ridiculous over use of the back mount? It's a dominant position for sure, but you see guys take each others back, and once locking in a decent body triangle, they coast and ride each other for 5 minutes without doing any real damage. It's as if they're thinking "Well, I got a very dominant position, but I'm not gonna do much just in case I lose it. I'm not very skilled after all. At least I'll win the round either way cause he's not going anywhere."

Secor vs. Hill was cringe worthy. I scored it for Secor, but neither deserved the win. I thought it was funny that Hill won actually. Secor took his back and just did.. Nothing. Hill wasn't good enough to get out of that position, and Secor just clinged on to him the entire time waiting for the time to run out thus making us wish we never tuned in. It was boring, sloppy, and justice was served by giving the loser the win. Maybe it will encourage guys to not have such ridiculous tactics.

I get it, they want to win the tournament and don't want to risk losing, but do they realize that if they end up losing, Dana will want nothing to do with them? Nobody wants to bring back a boring grinder. (There are exciting grinders out there, just not on this show.) Although, a guy who brings it and is exciting, he's more likely to be brought back down the line, if not immediately. Last season is an example. It was considered a very good season, and because of that, every guy got a second chance. That should be looked at more by future TUF contestants. I don't get why it isn't already.

That being said, I'm hoping Colton and Ricci make it to the finals. They're fighting out of their weight classes, and are still winning. They are really the only ones with any sort of skills and potential on the show in my opinion.

Good point, Neil is another guy that might do something in the future that I kind of forgot about. His reach is crazy for a smaller guy. 80 inch reach? That could present problems for a lot of fighters if he keeps fine tuning his striking and footwork. His fight with Ricci is a hard one to call.

Man, I've really only been watching the fights because these guys are so boring this season, but I watched this most recent episode in full and now I think I understand where some of the Roy Nelson hate I see on here is coming from.

People need to understand that you can edit 'reality TV' to tell whatever narrative you want, especially when you let a guy who just got beat tell you about all the other people he thinks are responsible for it.

That Rivera kid needs to shut the f*** up, and it's no coincidence they let him have his soap box when the topic was how bad he thinks Roy Nelson is at coaching.

To be fair though... Roy does seem to be a terrible coach.

I actually Roy is the better coach but he's so unlikable. Carwin seems like a great guy but a terrible coach. It reminds me of Lesnar/Dos Santos where everyone on team Lesnar hated him but they all over performed while Dos Santos was trying to be everyone's friend and they all failed.

Anyways for the finale I'll take Tobey Macguire to smash Sloth.

Yeah Carwin doesn't seem like much of a coach either.

To be fair, they were both terrible coaches along with terrible fighters. I found myself skipping most of the episodes and end up watching about 10 minutes altogether.
