Things I've learnt this season...
So, this TUF has pretty much reached its midpoint and we have essentially seen what we needed to see to get a real clue of what is actually going on in that house, and I've learned alot of things this season.
Ive learnt that all of these guys put on these "shows" before fights, and act the way they do because, well, they're amateurs. And I say "amateurs" not in a bad way, but that these guys don't know any better, they are young, they are naive and aren't hardened fighters like the UFC vets, they don't know any better. They come from doing small indie shows to being on national television apart of the biggest MMA org in the world, these guys' heads obviously aren't where everyone expects them to be. But thats ok, they have much to learn.
Iv also learnt that Dana White, on the show, is a great guy. Hes extremely supportive, gives the fighters more support than their coaches, and doesn't act like the arrogant ass that he is outside of the show. He is stoic, humble and very forgiving, and I like that.
There has been great controversy about this particular season as of late. Many have labeled it "crap", and "No where as good as previous seasons". Well, actually, Ive also come to see that in terms of fights, this season is freaken great. out of 7 fights only 1 has gone to dec, and even that ,was one of, if not the best match of the season. We've had great finishes, and great heart. The entertainment aspect of the show is also top notch. You have TONS of drama. Really folks, what more can you ask for!
So I go by saying this season is great, really great, and hopefully there are more exciting fights to come. But thats just my opinion, obviously you guys have yours.
PS: Do you think having all of your fighters in the next round a good thing, or a bad thing considering they will all face each other next?
