I have a hard time staying interested in TUF, reality TV just doesn't do it for me. With this season I watched the first episode to see the fights to get in the house and since I haven't bothered. I think the only season I watched to conclusion was the Mayhem Miller one :P

funny, the brasil tuf is better than the US as far as i'm concerned. They're all beasts, there's hardly been anyone showing so far that they are a **** (there's only 1 in fact, that I can think of that talks himself up more than I think he has the right to, and one semi-douche) all beasts though.. great collection of fighters

So overeem seems to have a plan for fighting junior as he's applied for his fight license. I don't see it happening, and if it does it'll be a tainted fight. It's a real shame as I was really keen for this fight.

Interesting to see them give Renato Sobral a little camera time on Wand's team this week on TUF Brazil (considering Dana seemingly hates him). I also thought it was interesting how they had a little "anti-dengue fever" section, pretty smart way to spread awareness considering how many people over there are watching.

It could be related to this point raised by The Voice on Inside MMA

Hate Jones, hate Evans even more, I wonder if he's spent the last year practicing closing the distance against an outfighter? It will be pretty obvious before a single round is over IMO, it would be interesting if he gets in there and puts Jones on his back but TBH i think we all know that "wannabe HW boxing champion of the world" Rashad is the one who will turn up.


edit: missed my picks last week too sorry, meant to do them before i went to bed on friday night but had a family medical emergency, gonna get them in this time for sure.

Stupid decision IMO. Take one interesting fight off the card (Mir vs Cain) and replace it with a completely one sided title fight.

They were in a pretty tough spot man, you can't really get mad at Dana. If you should be mad at anyone it should be Overeem.
