Im not saying your wrong, because there is definately a team component to the sport but if you consider mma a team sport then I think just about anything is a team sport. I cannot think of anything besides maybe running that doesnt require the help of others and even in running I am sure you have dudes you run with, a track team, a coach, probably at the highest levels trainers and stuff like that. So there is definately a team component to mma I just feel like when you actually have to do the sport yourself I just think it is an individual sport.

Either way, these guys just met each other (most of them) and were thrown onto teams and it isnt like they owe some huge amount of loyalty to the guys. Riddle was annoyed with May and thought Brown was a cool guy so he gave him a pointer, really didnt have an affect on the fight though because I dont think Brown threw a single leg kick and instead of kicking his leg, he kicked his face. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on the team sport thing, even though yeah to be successful you def. need good guys around you.

im going the other way on this. i think matt did what was necessary. people get really hung up on the team aspect of this show, but really... in the end its not a team that wins the contract. just one person. Of course people are gonna play one teammate against the other, sure some might do whats best for them and leave someone else blowin in the wind... tough luck man. watch out for yourself. Its not the IFL, the teams dont stay teams- it narrows down to a single person. what about at the end of the season when you end up seeing teammate vs teammate anyways?

I dont think this is an issue and i am very glad may is done. that kid sucked.

Evil will always triumph over good...

Because good is dumb.

You don't betray your team. Even if there was a few people I didn't like on my team I wouldn't help them lose. I don't think what Riddle did what was right. Neither did May by faking a injury then he gased like a ***** in the fight. Pisses me off...
