Best fight in TUF history, yeah right

It might be just me, but the fight tonight that was suppose to be the best fight of all 5 seasons was not what I expected. The standup was boring and when it went to the ground it was one sided. I was expecting an all out brawl with lots of blood, like Griffen/Bonner. Not saying blood makes a fight good or anything, but from the way they were talking I expected someone to get hurt bad. I wasn't really impressed with either fighter standing or on the ground. What did you guys think of the fight.

Yeah, pretty dull. I wasn't really paying full attention, so when White said it was the greatest LW fight ever, I was figuring I missed part of it...

White as the falling snow
Black as our citadels burned against the sky

Sanchez vs Koscheck was so much better. I mean, seriously, you'd think Dana would remember that fight since he referenced it not too long ago.

That being said, I dug it, but I didn't think "Wow, that freakin' blew my mind!" because it didn't.

Clementi vs Carter was better as well, and I dug Bonnar vs Swick more, as well. I mean, Swick vs Bonnar was short, but it ruled.

Yea that fight was a let down. I cant believe Dana really thinks that was good. I'm pretty sure they will be better fights than that this season. Emerson didn't even land one good punch the whole fight. He had one decent elbow. Props to Diaz. I thought he had that arm bar for a split second

It was a decent fight, how the **** was it boring? It was a none stop pace and by all means not BORING, but it wasn't great, nor technically good, but it was decent.

The hype got to it and that's what killed this fight.

The best TUF fight will always be Diego Sanchez vs. Josh Rafferty.

You're just a cook...

all of the fights so far this season have been pretty terrible imo...

going into the 5th season, they're probably running low on talent to recruit for the show
