F*ckin Lavar Johnson

They give him a whole hype video package, a backstory feature and then he comes out and gets laid out face first in like 40 seconds

finally caught this week's TUF episode. i wonder how long i'm going to last with this.

i think the UFC could take that classic fights program they run on hulu and add something to freshen it up for live TV. for example, they could pause in between rounds and do an updated, more professional breakdown of what went right and what went wrong rather than just rogan and goldy hurriedly recapping highlights. maybe find a way to relate the techniques covered to upcoming fights.

maybe do a little gameshow-style segment in which the action is paused at certain times, three choices / scenerios are presented for what happens next, and viewers text in their guesses as part of some kind of running contest or something. anything to get people involved. sort of like chess problems.

at least this way they'd be starting with a solid product, i.e. classic fights. the problem with TUF is that they're starting with something of mediocre interest in the first place. i mean, ronda and miesha's personalities are getting pretty stale at this point, most of the fighters are pretty uninteresting, and of the two people who probably stand out the most, one is that total d--khead coach edmond tarverdyan. the other is that super likeable roxanne modaferri... who looks shot at this point in her career, honestly.

I tend to get bored of TUF when I realize none of the fighter are legit UFC material. I'm not a big fan of the mens 135lb weight class either.

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.
