What's up with TUF Brazil? I went to videos and the image for the newest episode is a ****ing spoiler... I heard they did something like that which spoiled an earlier episode, also (something about showing one fighter with his hand raised at the very beginning of the episode).

Benson has wins over Edgar, Guida, Jim Miller and Cerrone, that's some pretty tough competition, although I get what you mean.

Edgar beat them pretty clearly. TKO stopped Maynard, grinded Penn to 2 unanimous decision wins and he clearly beat Sherk.

Cormier just beat Barnett.

I'll give you this.

No their stand up striking is not that good.

amazing how drastically this card has changed.

originally:
JDS - overeem
cain - mir
roy nelson - bigfoot
del rosario - gonzaga
struve - hunt

now:
JDS - mir
cain - bigfoot
roy nelson - herman
del rosario - miocic
struve - johnson

still a fun card, i guess. but we went from 3-4 'absolutely must see' fights to one or two at best.

JDS - mir, i think we can all picture how that's going to go right now.

nelson - herman, SDR - miocic, struve - johnson... meh... all fun fights, but none will change the HW picture all that much.

nope, i'm going with cain - bigfoot as the most interesting fight of the evening. either man can destroy the other in the blink of an eye, and i think the fight is a lot closer than the betting lines have it so far. it also has immediate implications for the challenger and top-5 picture.

As much as I am rooting for Mir and hope he wins, I see JDS taking it easily. He'll catch Mir, then TKO him by raining vicious punches on him. 2nd round maybe?

He should have lost to Penn in their first fight, and Penn had no motivation for their 2nd fight. That was by far the worst performance I can remember from him. I don't consider Sherk a top LW. I can't even remember the last time he fought. Wait, wasn't his last fight an absolute joke of a robbery?

How many subs did Barnett go for?

They're both underrated strikers.

I pointed out 1 of the spoilers... Other people were complaining about another episode as well that had spoilers.


Anyone catch TUF live? Chiesa looked awful in the first round, and well, Cruz was right about Vick's ground game...

This card turned out decent but it's not the "must buy" PPV that it was when they first announced it. Too many injuries (and steroid scandals) and too many opponent changes. I'll probably try to find a sports bar showing it and hang out there tonight
