After you get beat in a fight (especially after you get subbed by someone you A) should've beat or B) should NOT have gotten subbed by you want nothing to do with anyone for about 15 minutes for fear of just destroying someones face out of rage at yourself. Had Tito waited 5 minutes it would've been fine but the dude just got subbed, he probably wanted to crawl into a hole and forget he was a fighter.

I think that I heard something about Clayton being a BJJ black belt as well, so that must make getting submitted in the first round sting more for him. He had a few opportunities to get out of that position and he didn't seem to try to take them. It makes me wonder where he got his belt from.

It's not your home, the outdoors are safe enough, and it's warm.
It's a typical interior door. Has nobody notice that interior doors nowadays are pretty much hollow??

Anyhow, the best escape for me from the triangle has always been the feet in the armpits and sitting back. That one he was doing does work fairly well though, but I don't have as much success with it as the other one.

Clayton is only a blue belt, I read somewhere it might've been on the UG from one of the guys he trains with. The black belt reference is a typo i guess...

That makes more sense, I looked up his record and he has multiple submission losses. His most recent professional loss was against Steve Bruno by brabo choke in the second round. What a nice typo to make.

I was going to say, if he's a black belt, someone is handing them out of the back of a truck, because his ground game looked weak and that's being nice.

Even so, at some point you can clearly see that even Rampage was not "imbrest" with the door's performance. Dana should have provided Rampage with a slightly more worthy door, certainly not wood, but this one seems like beating up an empty egg carton.

Those doors just sit around asking to be torn apart, they probably thought it was going to happen on the first season. So they put up cheap doors. Honestly I'm shocked it took ten seasons for a door to get smashed, it's a house full of fighters fighting for a career and it's a coach that ends up smashing a door, I did not see that coming.

His submission defense was so poor that the fight almost seemed fixed. I know that it wasn't, but he never once tried to get out of that position, even when Noke was nowhere near locking it in.

They mentioned that he was a BJJ black belt, and I looked it up on a web site to see if it was true and supposedly it is. Someone needs to fix that error because I even think saying he is a blue belt is being generous, no disrespect intended to him.

Not even the Triangle, Noke almost got him in a kneebar twice before he finally got the triangle. I don't know why he ever tried to go to the ground with Noke anyway, I thought he was winning the fight standing. Yeah it wouldn't have been an impressive win if he just circled for two rounds, but he would still have advanced.
