One thing to keep in mind is that Nogueira may not have ever seen the show before. If he hasn't, he wouldn't know about the history of these types of antics, and that the fighters more or less think it's expected of them. And yes, the way team Mir disrespected Nog was b.s. but keep in mind we have the benefit of subtitles, the fighters don't. They may not really have understood why Nog was so serious about it.

I was really annoyed by the conduct of the cast and Frank Mir in this past episode. Nogueira is such an easy-going guy, but he's really being walked over by some guys that really should be kissing his feet. The fighters have one of THE greatest fighters in the world in their midst and they treat him like a nobody. When Nogueira speaks, silence should be immediate. I lost respect for Krzysztof last night when he refused to give up the games in the house when Nogueira asked him to.

I don't even wanna talk about Frank Mir shrugging off Nogueira's suggestion. Nog clearly cares about his fighters more than Frank does.

Whether he knows about it or not, he's earned the right to confront those fighters about their antics, and if they had any sense of gratitude they'd listen to him, red jersey or blue jersey. If anything these others coaches on previous seasons never took charge like Nog. He cares for his fighters man; he doesn't want that crap interfering, espcially itching powder. Like I said earlier, who knows who could have had a reaction to that powder and it obviously affected the way the fighters trained or else Nog wouldn't have been upset by it. He's doing what he feels is right, and it is. Team Mir and Mir himself just needs to grow a pair and learn a thing or two about respect and get out of their cute little "TUF" mindset.

I can actually understand Nog pretty well without subtitles. They know what he was saying and they still acted like pricks.

You're just a cook...

He did work for a comprimise by saying the beds are off limits and no pranks the night before a fight.

Big Nog's a great guy and I like him even more now. He's the real deal and he's making Mir look like such an immature and unprofessional meat head.

And yeah, Krystof is totally a d-head.

There's a difference between telling your kids non-chalantly to do something, but guess what? Chances are they aren't going to listen to you unless you sit them down, talk to them about it directly, and set limits. Frank Mir didn't even look at his guys, he just waved off Nogueira, and really didn't pursue the same cause. Obviously he doesn't care, because if he did, he'd take Nogueira's words more seriously. If I lost a fight because I was up all night due to someone ******* with my bed, I'd be very pissed off.

I was referring to Krzysztof.

Mir is their coach. Not their mommy. Not their babysitter.

I support Mir's reaction 100%.

also Efran was saying he was tired due to the itching powder not the morning after but the following morning. Itching powder causes irritation for roughly an hour. There's no reason for him to be complaining about it 2 days later.

Dana knows about the pranks, yet he does nothing.

If I lived in that house for 6 weeks and people tried screwing with me, I wouldn't do anything the first time, but I'd tell Dana and the coaches that if anyone ever fawked with me again, they're gonna get what's coming to them.

As far as I'm concerned I am not liable for any of my actions, as Dana knows exactly what is going on and isn't doing sh*t to stop it.

If you splash wine in my eye and throw glass at me, you're getting a bottle cracked over your skull.

Don't allow booze in the house Dana if you're so f*cking strict at kicking people off the show!
