Dana said something about Tito picking most of the fighters that won their fights in the first round which I didn't think made the case that he picked the right fighters. If anything, picking fighters that won their fights in the first 30 seconds or so is a bad idea. If you disagree, let me just say this. Even D level fighters can win a fight in 30 seconds depending on the competition they face. It happens all the time. I don't think that it really tells you a lot about the fighter. A lot of one hit wonders have been in the UFC and demolished their opponent in very quick time, but then when in fights where they actually have to work and put in effort, they get demolished themselves.

Chuck did his homework by not only watching his fighters in action before hand, but also by looking up their records online and seeing what they are all about. Just because a fighter doesn't knock out his opponent in under a minute, that doesn't mean that he will be less of a threat than guys who did during the season, and Chuck knows that.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of these fighters get tested against competition that won't get put away with ease. I don't think that us seeing them finish an opponent quickly shows us that much about their overall skill sets other than how much power and aggressiveness they have. Now if they can do that consistently like guys like Junior Dos Santos and Shane Carwin have, it would be a different story then. Although at the moment, that isn't the case.

I think this season will be a lot closer than some people on this season may think.
I think Chuck will do better than most people would expect after the first fights, and maybe has a show winner in NOKE, with RING from Tito's team as my other favourite, to win, so far. There was no debating the first fight, but to be fair, I thought the second fight between Tavares and the other guy could have gone either way. Chuck has the edge at the moment but apparently Tito got injured half way through the show, and Rich Franklin took over as coach, after watching Franklins poor coaching in past tuf when he advised fighters to touch the floor so that they couldn't kick you in the head,lol.
I wonder how his impact will affect TITO's teams chances if this is true.
Add to this the fact that TITO's team seems to have a lot of in fighting, and I think it just adds to the interest of this seasons tuf.

He told them to touch a knee to the floor so they couldn't get knee'd in the face. Sounds like a good idea to me. Dip shit Serra was the one who made a big deal out of it cause he was too stupid to understand IIRC. Been a while since I've seen it though.
