Firstly, Danny did better than i expected him to. I guess that's why they call him the prodigy.

Ed beat Danny standing up and on the ground and he'll do the same to Starnes. Starnes isn't very versatile and his takedowns were sloppy. I don't think he stands a chance, even if people are putting him in the top 20.

Team quest has the middle weights division.

This is the way I would like to see the semi finals matched up.

Ed Herman vs Rory Singer

Kendall Grove vs Kalib Starnes

What does everyone else think?

Kalib's jiu-jitsu is not the best of the group, I think that his takedowns are too sloppy and Ed will probably KO him standing up. Remember Ed is a student of Couture and team quest and he has fought some of the harder fights and won.

I think that Rory isn't really a contender and I think that forbes is just a punk who needs to get his clock cleaned again.

Ed Herman for champion.

Obviously, I don't think we see enough of the fighters in training/sparring sessions on the show to make a truly educated guess at who will win, and it's not really wise to judge the overall picture after seeing each one fight just once, but since we have no choice but to do that, I'd have to go with Ed.

Even though I wasn't very impressed with Ed after seeing his last match, I expect he'll shake off the 'ring rust' and get his game face on for this next match and beyond.

If Ed loses, I blame Ken. He's proved that he's not a very good coach and if Ed does manage to win, he deserves no credit.

I don't think that Ed has improved since coming on the show, but I think his dominance with Team Quest might be enough.

yea that was my biggest problem with the shows, you see them doing all this stuff at the house and other things but not alot of the training I think that would make the show better from an MMA athletes or fans stand point

I don't have a problem with Kalib going home, I've like Kendall from the beginning. I didn't think that he was going to get this far, but at this point he's definitely proved that he deserves to be here.

He's won one fight by submission and one with strikes and that proves that he's multi-dimesnional. If he beats ed in the finals I'll be OK with that,but I'd still put my money on Ed.

Good luck to Rory, but I don't think that he's got a chance in hell at beating shortfuse.

Logically, Ed is the heavy fav. I'm definitely picking him to take Rory. However, my heart reminds me that this is mma, and literally anything can happen to affect the outcome of a match. Rory might have some skills we haven't seen in his debut bout, but from what they've shown of him on the show so far, he definitely doesn't have his head in the right place to become a champion, or to even make it to the finals.

I like the way Tito seems to coach his fighters. He's incredibly positive towards their abilities (even if they seem lacking), yet he obviously pushes them hard. When a match is underway, and both coaches are calling out input to their fighters from outside the cage, Tito seems to be right on top of the situation from start to finish... you hear his voice loud and often, while Ken isn't nearly as aggressive. I appreciate that about Tito (as a coach), and to a fighter like Rory, who seems to harbor a lot of self-doubt going into a fight, it's something that could help him rise above his means.

Bottom line: I expect Ed to win. He SHOULD win. But there's always a chance for the underdog. :thumbsup:

That would be a valid point if you weren't trying to speak for everyone. Some people here haven't just seen them fight once on TUF.

I Have To Say I Would Have Agreed With You But Kendal Has Shown Alot Of Improvement In His Last Fight And I Can't Wait To See Him Fight Again To See Whether Or Not He Keeps It Up.ed Vs. Kendal Should Be Good

This reminds me of when there were several people in another thread talking about Rory winning yet as you can see there is not one single vote for him.

Now there are at least several people saying that Grove will win but there is only one vote for him. :laugh:

I'm prob the only one that finds this funny though.
