They probably have confidential agreements signed... but your right, they probably would tell friends family ect.

I think its the UFC limiting the possibility of results getting out, they might not be able to control it for few weeks they are out of the house leading up to the final, but they can control it while they are in the house.

Dana already said, he'd seen the messages and one of them that was sent contained results. TUF is already struggling with ratings, I can see why Dana made such a big deal of it.

Had it just been one person and not half the UK team they'd have been made an example of and kicked off the show. As it happens kicking 4 UK lads means there wouldn't be much of a show left. Plus the UK guys are making TUF one of the most interesting in years.

I knew who won the Ferguson and Nijem series before it even aired, so it does get out. Was trying somewhere to bet but obviously with it being prerecorded there was nowhere

Yeah I kinda liked the idea of the live show they had when on spike... Guess thats not likely to happen again.

I dont know if it was the punch that dropped him, banging his head on the mat after the push or the punch as Whitaker coming down that done him....

Weird one....


Im kind of starting to like Whitaker too, love how quick he goes from warm and friendly in the build up to the Xavier fight to back to stoic badass when he starts thinking about brad....

I actually like none of the aussies. You've got X, who is a terrible fighter who thinks he's amazing. Whitaker who landed a lucky punch and acted like he was JDS, Ben Alloway who is easily hateable. Theres pretty much no one to like. The only guy from the UK team I dont like is the greek guy or whatever his name is.

That being said, Brad is probably getting stopped. He looks terrible stand up, and despite what he thinks, his cardio is terrible. Whitaker has decent enough stand up, and will probably easily smack Brad at a distance to take the win. I said something similar when Demarques took on Wilks a few years back so hopefully I'm wrong again.

Freakshow should be able to take his fight. I find myself siding with the UK during these things even though I hate to be called British haha. Another all UK win would be huge for TUF, clean sweeping the only country Vs country shows and keeping themselves on top.

I can see fighting a friend in the final playing on his mind, the Irish doesn't seem to give a shit
