the lack of a crowd and announcers plays a HUGE role in whether or not a fight is exciting...

I'm sure if that fight was in front of 20,000 and had goldie and rogan freakin out, people would have different views.

the ground work near the end was exciting.

The 1s rd was pretty dull....Diaz was just feeling out the stand up game and workin his jab range.

The 2nd rd was fairly entertaining and give Diaz some credit he worked his ground game really well and totally dominated.

To say it was the best fight in TUF history was way over the top though.

I didn't hear any hype....I fast forward through all the commercials and shit so I didn't realize there was any hype as it being a good fight, but I dropped my jaw when Dana said it was the best fight out of all 5 seasons.

It's was alright but hardly the best fight ever... and I sure as hell wouldn't have billed it as "showing us what this season is all about".

A) That just goes to show you how weak the TUF fights have been throughout the 5 seasons.

B)Considering Emerson is supposed to be such a great kickboxer and has great sub defense, why didn't he throw more kicks?

Emerson got beat by a bigger, more ground savvy and aggressive opponent.

TUF is not an outlet to find unsigned talent who can compete against the best in the world. It's a draft to find fighters to fill up the UFC's thin divisions. There are only a couple of guys that are even memorable on this season and half of them are memorable because of stupid s*** they do on camera.

I agree with that. If someone is standing in front of you pawing at your left hand, trying to hold it to keep you from jabbing what do you do?

You snap an inside leg kick to his right thigh to keep him from doing that.

I was yelling that at the T.V..... I'm not the only one that does that right?

I was yelling at the TV as well, wondering why the hell Nate Diaz couldn't finish him on the ground. He HAD that armbar, and he just transitioned out of it. He could've ended it right there. What the hell was with all the hype behind Emerson? He had good takedown defense, but other than that, it was completely one-sided.

That arm bar wasn't tight enough so he HAD to transition to a choke. If you watch closely, you can see that Emerson's thumb is not pointing up so the arm wasn't comletelty locked. That's why Emerson was able to roll for the scramble. He got lucky. That armbar looked like he sunk it in deep until Emerson squirmed out of it.

Not the most impressive fight but Diaz was stlking him for both rounds. Emerson barely mounted a real offense. He was lucky in Round 1 that Diaz's stand up wasn't very good in the beginning. That's the only way he could have won round 1.

Like everyone else i agree, think it was way overhyped.

But ya gotta give emerson props the dude was in TROUBLE the whole 2nd round.



He reminded me of BJ penn though.








in the sense he came out in the 2nd round completely exhausted and undertrained for cardio.
