I don't know about team canada but whoever picked team australia did a lousy job because the two out of our team that are decent is tyler and daniel and jake is unknown at this point we have a lot better fighters than people like vik and brendan and chris and zein.

I don't know too much about the Australian fight scene... but these fighter picks are making you guys look bad.

They all just seem like 'tough guys' but not one of them have exhibited any remarkable skill set.

That's really too bad... I wouldn't doubt if this seasons ratings are in the toilet as well.

I know a few guys that have given up on this season because 'it's just so blah'

I usually watch no matter what, but I understand where they're coming from.

I actually have found this to be one of the most entertaining tuf seasons in a long time

Iím enjoying this season, but I generally enjoy TUF. Still loving the production of the show as the flow is much better than the Spike version.

I can see why people are tuning out as I thought last nightís fight was watchable but sloppy. Given that Taleb broke his foot in the first thirty seconds it is more understandable but when I was watching I could not understand why he seemed to tentative. I picked Taleb over Tyler and thought he should have taken the third round because of the takedown at the end. I didnít think Tyler reversing it really changed the entire round, but thatís how it goes. For all of Tylerís ability to just walk in and start swinging he took a lot of damage and I canít see that playing well in his next bout. If Tyler maintains that style, and I canít see him changing that much over the six week filming process, he is going to be in terrible shape when this is all over. For a guy that is only 19 heís got the guts and potential, but needs to get in an established camp to capitalize (as well move down to 170).

Of course Iím cheering Team Canada but I like the Aussies more and more. Chris Indichís blog on MMA Junkie sums it up best:

It was a really special opportunity and a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing. Some guys think it was the worst thing that ever happened to them and say theyíll never go into the house again, but I thought it was a unique experience, and I would definitely do it again.
It annoys the hell out of me to see some of the TUF fighters bitchin about living all expenses paid, free room, board and food, and full time training for six weeks.

Anyone else notice that weird twitch that Taleb does after every time he got hit? It's like his tell... he should really stop doing that.

The judges certainly aren't blind... but you're basically confirming every time he hits you and almost making it look like you're shaking the cobwebs loose after getting punched.

He probably doesn't even realize he's doing it... but he needs to figure out how to stop.

I like that nordine " i have a funny accent so im automatically tough" taleb got taken down a peg, tyler needs some cardio work and some straight punch improvement.
