It begins! I've got a good feeling about this season.

Uriah Hall looks to be the most well rounded imo. Hard to tell after one fight, but he really looked good.

Clint Hester is obviously a tank. He's going to have a strength advantage in just about any fight.

Luke Barnatt looks very experienced, and technically sound but he has a tough match up stylistically with Gilbert Smith.

Tor reminds me a bit of Fedor is his demeanor. Hopefully he can get some W's.

Josh Samman gets the first episode douche bag award for his double fists on the ground and fight schedule itinerary.

Also I think Chael Sonnen is going to walk away from this show with a lot more fans. He is the world's biggest troll, but when he isn't hamming it up for the cameras he's actually a likable guy.

Looks like this is going to be a great season!! can't wait to hear Chael's speech in full and see that "nasty" KO.

Sucks to be the guy that fought uriah hall. He would have walked through just about anybody else.

This season looks like it is going to be good. They have some solid fighters in the house including Tor Troeng, Kevin Casey, Uriah Hall & Clint Hester. That is of course without mentioning luke Barnatt who I thin actually has a good shot at winning this thing. Josh Samman is definitely going to be the douche of the show without a doubt. There were some others as well who I thought were good such as Gilbert Smith and Bubba McDaniel

There was a part of me hoping that Bubba McDaniel was picked last by Jones.

OK, seriously, what was Josh doing with those double punches? Trying to be funny? Memorable? As soon as he started them, I was hoping the dude was going to reverse him and pull it out. WTF?

They were actually kind of effective at opening the guy up. It looked stupid but still. No really different than when Saku used to do those rolling hammerfists/go ape and just overwhelm the guy from mount.

I like the new production for the house stuff but I don't really know if I'm gonna like watching every single fight like that. I know most didn't like the whole sob story thing but I did like the element of having the families there and seeing their reaction it adds another element of realness to it, when Fekete got knocked out you could see his girl's reaction, when the guy that brought his kids there lost you could see their reaction. I kinda liked that.

It looks like it'll have some good fights but watching the fights under the new production is gonna be the real test in my eyes.

Did anyone notice that the fights all looked like an action scene from 28 days later? I mean I know they are trying to be grittier, but sometimes it got hard to watch fast exchanges. Also they better show entire fights, they used two hours last night and edited parts of the only fight I wanted to see....I didn't even realize that they only showed me the first round of Uriah Hall's fight until they went back to the corners. So the editing is nice, but I want to see the whole fight.
