For people who train under some of the best fighters and fighting is all they have to worry about and do all day i thought they were awful. They were dead tired before round one ended and they showed no skill. What got me was how everybody at the end of the second fight, said it was such a good fight and a good performance. (Rampage and Dana White). Again i'm usually not one of those guys who say i could kick their ass but i think myself and probably a lot of people on this forum could have done better.

I'm not so sure you or anyone in here could "do better"... but I do agree that the second fight was not a good fight.. I prefer to watch highly skilled MMA guys over two bangers that keep their hands down at their sides and just throw bombs from left field.

You do have to give props to their chins though.. those guys took some pretty heavy shots.

That's not good fighting to me.. If I enjoyed that, I'd just watch ToughMan competitions on Fox.

No thanks.

They took a few decent shots, but for the most part it wasn't really powerful shots. I thought they had terrible power behind their punches. i dont know, maybe i'm over reacting but when i was watching it, it was almost funny to see how bad they were along with Jeremy May.

I watch pretty much anything to do with MMA, i don't think it means your a "noob" just because people watch the show.

The funny thing is this season they made a big deal about having to fight your way in. Although the fights were a nice bonus it didn't seem to weed out the fighters who were not as skilled.

I have to say though I would not dare say I would kick that guys ass or anything of the sort. Until your in the Octagon with the cameras rolling and someone in front of you for the whole nation to see you just don't know.

MHO

I wouldn't go so far as to say I could kick anyone's ass, but i saw a complete lack of skill from May, and the second fight was pretty crappy as far as both fighters were concerned..."let's hold eachother and trade punches to the head hockey style" is about how i'd describe the strategy.
