I mean hasn't there been a food fight on every show so far? And writing all over the walls, it just comes with the territory.

Atleast in the real world house they have chics to have sex with to pass the time lol .... And if MTV who caters to 12-16 year olds promotes sex on every show they got, then TUF who has like one scuffle per season is nothing.
To answer your question NO I do not think that Chuck Lidell, or Randy Couture, or Matt Hughes would tear apart the house they lived in. I also know for a fact that the guys I train with would not do it either.

I DO believe that they are encouraged to do it by the producers. I guess they feel it is every 16-23 year olds dream to eat, drink, and tear up a million dollar home.

If these guys want to be taken seriously they should stick to fighting in the ring, and stay sober in the house.

I want Hughes to win because I can't stand Serra and the way he thinks he's hotshit becuz he got lucky and beat GSP for the title.

BUT...I want Serra to win so GSP could have his rematch with Serra and destroy him.

I don't know, whoever it is, GSP will get his belt back!
I agree, GSP deserves revenge.

GSP will beat Hughes again.

Back to square one.
Then hopefully we can get past the same matchups over and over in this division and GSP can defend against the likes of Karo, Mach, and Diego.

Hughes kicks the crap out of GSP the next time they fight. Serra is a non issue. I hope Serra had plenty of pictures taken because if he wants to touch the belt again after He and Hughes fight, he better ask permission.

I liked GSP until he told Hughes he was not impressed with his fight, and made excuses for the Serra fight. I was really disapointed.

The preview looked pretty intense. All I want to know is why the guys can destroy the crap out of the house they are living in without Dana getting all pissed off about it? It just boggles my mind.

I refuse to count Matt Serra out of this fight with Hughes. I had Serra getting destroyed by Lytle. It didn't happen. I had Serra getting destroyed by GSP. It didn't happen.

I'm not saying that I'm picking Serra to win this fight, but I think that Serra has a good enough ground game that he can present some problems for Matt. Hughes is strong enough to power through most stuff, but there's always a chance that a guy as good as Serra can sink something in and finish the fight.

I also think that Serra has an advantage standing up, since he actually has a striking game.

As for the season of TUF, it should be interesting. I think Serra is probably a more well rounded guy than Hughes and I'd rather work with Serra, but the there's alot of hero worship there for alot of guys. Plus, Hughes is going to have some good guest coaches. Bring on Marc Laimon!

I personally do not want to live in a world where Matt Serra is the champion. He has absolutely no class whatsoever.

Hughes loses, he can kiss his career goodbye as far as I am concerned. Serra should pose NO problem for GSP or Hughes, GSP got caught. 9 of 10 he wins against the scrub. We witnessed the 10th with GSP. I would NEVER have picked Serra to beat GSP, but man I was excited when he did. Then he opened his mouth and ruined my impression of him.

Like I said in another post, it takes A LOT to get me to root for Matt Hughes.... Serra made me a HUGE fan, and if Matt beats his ass like I want him too, I will owe him a favor.

That's pretty serious coming straight from a Miletich man. You've got a great point too. There has been a ton of hero worship toward Hughes and it's gone to his head. I used to have a lot more respect for Serra until recently, and I know he is capable of pulling off another surprise win. I just think it's unlikely. Either way, I'm just waiting for GSP to get his belt back and fight some more deserving contenders.
