The guy who did the fake touch gloves said he didnt mean to, i can believe it - i done it in sparring once and busted a guys nose.... although the speed of which i threw the shot after the touch seems to get smaller each time i see him But it was somewhat quick on my part, sometimes you are just raring to go.

Well he had no problem accepting the take down and position that he unfairly got. If that were me, I would have let the guy up and apologized. (It's not like fighters haven't apologized during a fight before) I'd feel like if I potentially won off of that unfair move (who knows, he could potentially have.), it would tarnish my win and I'd feel bad for my opponent who was probably training just as hard and needed the win as much as I did. I'd feel like I unfairly robbed him and that's not the kind of guy I want to be.

Besides, it's different to throw a quick punch in a sparring session than it is to shoot a take down in an actual fight that matters so much to both fighters. It also takes a little bit more effort to shoot in for a take down than it does to throw a punch in my opinion. I don't think he didn't mean too, but that's just my opinion as well. Who knows, it's still shady either way.

Its not great and he will somewhat pay for it - dont help the other guy though...High pressure situation though, cant say what i would of done in his place after the "mistake" I agree he should of done that, but its hard to give up that position in the fight of your life so far.

Cameron's stand-up was laughably bad.

Dude with the pink mohawk seriously needs to get KTFO. People like that are why mixed martial artists are still viewed as meathead twats (in America at least).

I feel bad for Cameron. He subs probably every wrestler in the house, and Roy puts him against a stand up fighter. If he had some more confidence, perhaps after a win or two, he would be able to go for more takedowns which, wether successful or not, engages grappling and potentially submissions and he would do a lot better.

Neil looked quite good. His takedown defence, although I dont think he got put on his back, looked a little weak and against an actual wrestler I see him having a lot of problems. He has long legs though so he might be able to sink in a triangle or something. On the feet though he looks smart and composed so he might do well this season.

Nelson is an awful coach.

a few thoughts.

- Julian is a dickhead
- Roy is kinda slacking off his coaching gig, from the footage at least.
- Does Carwin have a sense of humour, at all? Dude is like the terminator.

Julian is a dick but I sort of prefer him to everyone on the other team. Usually thhe cocky guys with the stupid hair and the ones I hate most but it just seems like this season is jam packed with arseholes.

I'm starting to HATE Roy through this. I thought Roy was going to be the hilarious dude who I insantly side with, and Carwin was going to be, well how he is, and it would come off badly against Roy. I always thought Roy was the man, but watching this he's lazy as fuuuuk. I mean you'd expect it, but his fighting ethic made it seem as though he wasnt. But he doesnt seem to give a fuk about anyone this season and cant be bothered doing any of the work, even down to the fight pick which he should have been so excited to choose. From day one when he was saying "I dont care about having exciting fights" to making stupid decisions with Cameron and Julian, he's just an awful coach and it sucks for his team.

Roy is an awful coach, if he didn't make weight he should have said something at the weigh ins! What the **** did he expect Dana to do?

By the way at 3:20 of the first was that a knee to the nuts of Julian? Sounded he got him in the cup and that's why he screamed.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

I wondered that myself, it was a little weird that he screamed like that, but the knee was pretty solid. Honestly I don't give a shit though, I was glad to see him lose and cry. I hate all these guys that don't work and try to make it as fighters with no back up plan. I really hate it when they have family. It's pathetic. Be a man.

Completley with you. When someonne says "I'm fighting so my family can have a future. I just want to take care of them", I'm thinking 'Then why dont you just get a secure job'? Really, no one is a fighter for their family. It's a selfish sport (which is okay because being selfish is pretty important at times). A wife would much prefer a lawyer husband who takes care of them fianancially, and where she doesnt have to see her husband bloodied and bruised going through the harshed despair of his life after a devistating loss. People arent fighting for their familieis, they are fighting because they are fighters, and the stupid excuses and 'I've have a hard life' shit annoys me.
