I've not been able to watch the last few episodes of TUF, but I'm sure that I can catch the replays...have they been that bad?

Yea, SUPER bad. Two fights that could have been awesome had they gone a third round (which they should have) had insanely scored 10-8 rounds. The last fight, the guy who obviously won was robbed.

I have been soured by TUF lately, but I'm going to the finale in Vegas this year, so I guess I gotta stay current lol.

Yeah, for sure! It seems like there hasn't been a PPV in forever!

I think GSP will take it by decision, although I hope that it does not happen that way.

Hendricks for the second fight

Haven't seen Carmont fight before...so can't really make a decision

Going with Ring

Going with Hominick

How about you?

Solid picks!

I agree with GSP via decision over Condit. Although, GSP has been out of the ring for a long time now. It will be interesting to see how he responds to the long layoff.

Looking forward to Kampmann vs Hendricks. Kampmann is very under-rated and a great technical striker. But I agree on Hendricks - big power, solid wrestling game.

I would like to see Lawlor get back to form and get a W, but it will be a tough test for sure. Still, I'm gonna go with Lawlor on a gamble.

Philippou and Ring will be interesting too. I'd like to see Ring continue to rise through the ranks. I'm gonna say Ring in this one too cuz I'm rooting for him.

Hominick vs Garza is a trap fight. I feel Hominick should win this, but he has had some wild ups and downs lately. I think that is gonna continue, I'm going with Garza.

Ha, love it.

My GF's daughter's BF (got that?) is a high level Tae Kwon Do practitioner. It is pretty cool discipline. However, with my boxing background, I have a bit of a hard time with it. Every time I go to one his matches and he is in close, I'm always tempted to yell, "THROW THE RIGHT! (hand)". I probably couldn't do that sport. I would definitely accidentally throw a fist lol.

It definitely is a great art...I love the Tornado Kick that they use:



I believe I was told that the kicks in Shorin-Ryu style Karate (my "parent" art) are derived from TKD. And I would be tempted to use my hands as well.

That was crazy! What a fight though. Marquez battled back after that knockdown very impressively.

So much for the super fight!

Anyone catch the UFC on Fox fights? The whole thing, prelims included, were pretty great. I was most excited for the Rory MacDonald,/BJ Penn fight. MacDonald is going to be a beast, that kid is young and has skills. Only gripe with him is I'm afraid he's fighting too much like GSP. Amazingly technical but not able to finish fights. He had BJ staggered twice where if he got aggressive he could have ended it. Early on BJ was ready to curl up in the fetal position from some good body blows but he just kept picking at him.

I think thats the problem with really smart fighters like the GSP camp haha. They stick to their safe gameplan so much that they won't pounce to end it when they can.

I agree with you on Rory's potential. He executed perfectly, and his stand-up continues to grow and expand.

However, I completely disagree with you regarding the gameplan discipline. As someone who trains in MMA, that level of discipline is very admirable, and takes a long time to obtain. BJ Penn is no slouch. Even when hurt, he is incredibly dangerous. I think Rory went about trying to finish him the right way without leaving himself open to significant counterstrikes. Keep in mind, BJ Penn has NEVER been knocked down and never knocked out. He was definitely hurt many times in that fight, but he was firing a good counter left that could have done some damage. He did catch Rory a few times.


My biggest issue with the last 3 fights, the big fights, was the scoring by the judges. I am getting very concerned with the way judges are handing out 10-8 rounds now like they are candy. In the three fights, at least one judge scored a 10-8 round for one of the fighers. While all three winners won in fairly dominant manner, I can't say they won a one-sided, 10-8 round at any point. Hell, after the Gustafson fight, I figured it might even be a split decision, or at best a 29-28 unanimous. Very surprised at the extreme scoring of the judges.

Hey, I train too I ain't no couch commentator here haha!

Oh yeah, I totally agree BJ is dangerous, but I just thought it was funny that GSP is often criticized for not finishing fights, then I saw two good spots where I thought if Rory kept the pressure on he could have taken the fight then and there and didn't strike. But I guess GSP and now MacDonald have gotten the wins so in the end thats all that matters. But isn't it just more exciting when a guy is willing to stick his neck out a bit?

The judges in these things are a joke. It is getting ridiculous some of the calls. Even on TUF, you watch that? There needs to be a revamp of the system, some of them are truely awful. Just look at Dana's rants haha.

Yea, I totally hear ya on the exciting fighter part. Just my opinion regarding the gameplan thing

Yea, it seems like the recent TUF is where this judging mess started actually. I can't decide if judging should be revamped or not. Honestly, I could go either way. On the revamp side, a re-evaluation of the criteria judged to win a fight could certainly help to modernize the sport and help everyone, from fighters to fans, understand the critera better. On the anti-revamp side, the system is not terrible. What IS terrible is the inconsistency of the judging. If they were all on the same page, we would be better off. So, again, I could go either way.
