personally i don't mind watching the little guys on TUF... these guys do fight balls to the wall from what i've seen. my problem is that watching them chill at the house and stuff is becoming pretty stale. it's kind of an ancient reality show format at this point and time is not being kind to it.


@bdreason,
that does make me wonder though... do you have any sense of what percentage of these guys make it in the more successful MMA orgs? like bellator, WSOF, etc...?

Palhares got banned from ufc for his submission hold vs pierce and of course his bad history of holding subs too long

Good he deserves it

The guy was tapping frantically and the ref is literally on top of them trying to pry them apart yet he keeps cranking the leg trying to do more damage for NO reason. No place for that in pro fighting

just finished this week's TUF. more boring reality show stuff, but great fight obviously between pennington and duke.

nice little demonstration of how a shorter fighter can use their speed, power, and the taller person's own strikes to get in to range and punish them. nice job also slipping away from all those potentially brutal muay thai attacks.

interesting. so mister harris’ former coach, bustamonte, disclosed that harris had injured a bunch of sparring partners at the gym. always had an excuse or got in to a big argument over it. even a sports psychologist couldn’t help.

so good riddance to that dickhead, and hopefully nobody else wants him. bellator certainly doesn’t.
