At the end of the day, Neace still lost the fight and complaining about that looks like a security blanket for losing. Never mind the 9 minutes where he was almost getting out worked in every aspect of mixed martial arts. He showed a lot of holes in his game. After that moment, Akira probably knew that all he had to worry about were submissions. Once he was careful, Neace never came close. Akira was the better fighter regardless of getting caught in my opinion.

If Neace wants to concentrate on getting potentially robbed of a submission win instead of concentrate on how his holes were clearly shown, that's his decision.

I never said he wasn't getting worked before he sunk in the sub. But the fight should have ended there. But it didn't and Akira won.

Next issue. Akira had Neace hurt pretty bad and couldn't finish. Then acted like a complete tool and almost got suspended. I may not have hated Akira so much if he would not have jumped up like he knew for sure he won.

All in all great episode. It has me reeled in for sure

No doubt, Akira's reaction after winning wasn't very professional. I'm not a fan of either guy, but I want to see the more talented guys move on so we can see just how talented the advancing fighters are. It would have been sort of a shame if Neace moved on and got wrecked by someone in the semi finals that Akira could have potentially beat. I don't want to see any easy fights for any of the fighters.

This season has me reeled in as well.

I don't mind Dodson. I think it's funny how he basically says it's his fault, but then just shrugs it off like it's no big deal. An "Oh well, moving on." type of moment. I found his lack of apathy in his attitude amusing. You can't blame him for not caring that much when you think about it. In the long run, it's about your career, not your team.

Ignorant statement of the day goes to.... YOU!

So, it's about his CAREER and not his TEAM? Right, so when I wake up each and everyday, my BJJ isn't better, nor is my striking or wrestling. I go to the gym, and my TEAM helps me improve. Last time I checked Dodson is there to IMPROVE HIS CAREER, just like you said. However, if it weren't for his team....?

Alright, Akira didn't tap. He's still an ass though.

Proof:





I feel kinda stupid now but from the TV angle it looked like he tapped.

I think you misunderstood what I said. Dodson is still getting the training in with his team, but them not advancing in the tournament doesn't effect him. He probably won't even train with half of them once he leaves the house.

What I mean is, if he is going to be all "TEAM YEAH!! LETS PRANK!! YEAH OUR FIGHTER WON!!" it won't improve his training either way. Whether his team mates win or lose, he's still going to be training with them, and I doubt they are going to be like "YOU ARE FORBIDDEN TO TRAIN AND LEARN SINCE YOU'RE NOT SUPPORTIVE".

In the long run, it's about your career, not your "TUF team advancing". Obviously where you train and who you train with matters in the long run, and training with your team in the house is clearly beneficial.

I'll end my post with this, if I got eliminated in the first round, but then a team mate of mine who I wasn't friends with went on to win the tournament, I wouldn't be all that excited because my team won. Sure, I'd be happy for him because he probably earned it, but my reasons for going on the show would be to further my career and use my earnings to help support my family and give them a better life. I'll use the training with my team to better myself, but them advancing wouldn't effect me in the long run considering they'll stay on the show and continue to help train whether they win or lose. I'll help them train and do my best to help them advance, but I wouldn't be broken hearted if they didn't.

Sorry, haha.

If it were my home gym, I'd feel differently because I'd probably be close to them. I'd be very sad if a friend lost.

"Maybe it was a little tap, there, I don't know," Corassani said. "I thought I was going to tap. I was tapping in that moment. I was going to tap in that moment. When I hit him, I hit him once on the thigh, so it was not clear. In that moment, if you look at my heel and not concentrate on my hand, you see that he misses it, and then it comes out."
