TUF 11.6 Recap: Don’t Go There, Sister

Don’t know about you guys, but I’m still reeling from the horrible decision on last night’s episode. Seriously, the way the judges scored Nick Ring vs. Court McGee made Garcia vs. Jung look like Brown vs. Board of Education. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning…

Kyacey Uscola is pissed that Coach Tito had Kris McCray doing intense plyometrics in the days leading up to his fight, which might have sapped his energy. McCray doesn’t feel he was overtrained, and his boy Jamie Yager appreciates that he didn’t make any excuses: "I’m proud of you that you went out there and did your dizzle. ‘Nuff said." James Hammortree thinks Tito is just pushing them to their limits, and "some of us haven’t had that before." To Nick Ring, the TUF workouts feel like a vacation compared to what he normally does.

Kyacey’s bad vibes get back to Tito, so he arranges an Airing of Grievances. Tito defends his methods to Kyacey, explaining that he’s training his guys to fight back to back to back, and points out that Kyacey’s cardio has visibly improved since he entered the house. Tito doesn’t doubt himself, despite the score, which is 4-1 in Chuck’s favor. He still feels that the fighter who gets his hand raised at the end of the show will be a Team Punishment member.

Oh snap, it’s time for the Coaches’ Challenge already, and it’s…dodgeball? That’s more of a team sport, but conveniently, each game ends with a faceoff between Chuck and Tito. Dana brings out the money stack, and Yager makes a move for it. First team to win three games scores ten G’s for the coach and $1,000 for each team member. "I’m just excited to hit Chuck with my balls," Tito says. And yet, that’s not the gayest moment of the episode. Team Liddell wins the challenge in a 3-0 shellacking. Ortiz is the last out in each game. "He has trouble beating me in just about anything," Liddell says.

Okay, so here’s the gayest moment of the episode: For the sixth fight, Chuck chooses his fighter Court McGee (#6 pick) to go up against Team Punishment’s much-hyped #1 pick, Nick Ring. They face off, and Ring — who’s a lispy son-of-a-bitch to begin with — puts his finger in Court’s face and says "Oh no you didn’t…Just don’t go there, sister." As Ring explains, "If you’re gonna go out, go out with style." Christ, man. This is The Ultimate Fighter, not RuPaul’s Drag Race. Another detail about Ring: He wasn’t really into sports until he discovered the "rawness" of MMA…although he did play a little soccer when he was younger. Well that settles it.

Court’s a monster on the heavy bag. He’s also a former drug addict (cocaine, Oxycontin, heroin, you name it) who has been sober for 1,300+ days, since being thrown into rehab by his family. He tells the guys about the time he went on a four-day alcohol blackout and woke up in Iowa with no pants, which would be a hilarious story if Shonie Carter was telling it, but it’s mostly sad coming from Court.

Bad luck strikes Team Punishment again as James Hammortree wrecks his back during practice and has to be taken out of the gym on a stretcher. It’s a scary moment, but he comes back later saying it was just a bulging disc and he can probably still fight, so I guess all of his girlish screaming wasn’t really necessary.

Ring is undefeated, 8-0 as a pro and 2-0 as an amateur. And how many of his ten opponents currently have winning records? Three. Court’s competition has been slightly better, and he actually holds a win over Damarques Johnson.

It’s go time…

Round 1: McGee opens strong with a high kick and a takedown, but Ring locks him down on the ground and McGee doesn’t have space to do damage. Ring escapes and they trade kicks for a while. Eventually McGee shoots again but Ring sprawls this time, transitions onto McGee’s back, then gets into his half-guard. Ring starts scoring points with hard punches from the top. Unable to escape the position, McGee starts returning fire from his back in the closing moments of the round. Ring edges it out, 10-9.

Round 2: McGee starts off with a right straight. Ring returns with an inside leg kick, then a high kick. He lands two more leg kicks. McGee is working his boxing, but Ring is landing kicks at will. It’s at this moment that all three judges decide they’ve seen enough, and leave the gym to grab a smoke. The momentum begins to shift, quite obviously. McGee lands an uppercut in a clinch, then a knee and a punch combo. McGee with another uppercut, and some effective dirty boxing. Ring tries to clinch from six feet away, wading in with his hands in front of him like a zombie, and gets tagged coming in. Nick is looking lost out there. Court scores with body-shots in a clinch, and ends the round landing shots. There’s the bell. Unless the judges gave the first round to McGee, this should be going to Sudden Victory. But what’s this? They judges have already made a decision…

The scores are: 20-18 Ring (???), 19-19, 20-18 Ring (???!?!!?!!!?!?!). What the fuck. Ridiculous. Chuck is understandably pissed off. "That’s why you don’t let it go to the judges," Dana explains. Easier said than done, you asshole! Why don’t you just hire some competent fucking judges and we wouldn’t have this problem every other week? Oh, and remember

@Ratel - Mike Rowe does the ON CAMERA for a lot of the recent Ford commercials... mostly trucks.

@ J-Dog - Kiefer Sutherland does the voiceovers for Ford.

Re. Nick (cock) Ring - he specifically said, "I had to do it," speaking of the Oh-no-you-didn't-sister thing, "for calling me out."

He's been called out. As in, out of the closet. Chuck was the one who chose the fight, so I must interpret Ring's saying McGee called him out as having identified Ring's overwhelming gayness and calling him on it.

Ring, having been called out and realizing that his options are limited, decided to embrace his gayness publicly by 'coming out', as it were, right there on the show.

So, the cat's outta the bag. Big fucking deal. It's called The Ultimate Fighter, to the Ultimate Gay-off. Let's try to stay focused on the original premise of the show, for fuck's sakes. Homo or not, he can fight - and had he been on Chuck's team there would be not question over the victory, since Chuck's d-bag level is only 1% that of Frito's

Ahh, another beautiful day in the Potato Nation, the thing I most love about this website is this: You all know that line in the sand that you dont cross, cause its hurtful, or politically incorrect or whatever, well over here at the Nation thats whats used as the start line, accept it and have a giggle, or not, whatever, but its pointless bitching about it here, we know that between us we can come up with some pretty obnoxious racist homophobic xenophobic misonygistic redkneck retart shit, but it makes us laugh our asses off and we just dont give a flying fuck what the PC Police /grammer nazis think.
Happy Friday to my Potato Nation brothers and sisters

I'm with wifey. Ring either is gay or deliberately letting people think he is. Whatever. I expect CP to notice this, and I expect CP to make a joke about it. In fact, the zucchini line is funny. But the general tone of this piece comes off, to me, as mildly homophobic, and I'm not feeling it.
HokeyPokeyLikeAoki- May 6, 2010 at 9:44 pm
I have to add one last thing here. On a serious note, there's nothing wrong with being gay. But I was just calling it how I see it and Ring is hardly in the closet. My own Wifey agreed with me on that. Regardless, gay or not, that last name was made for abuse!
dranokills- May 6, 2010 at 7:11 pm
"Gay people are no more of a threat to anyone than straight people. What is wrong and dangerous are the people who are scared and threatened by it. Its close-minded, discriminatory, and simply wrong. But hey, you never hear about gay students going on rampages killing heterosexuals do you?"

yeah thats cause they are to busy sucking each other to go on a real Rampage. Only real men can go on a rampage damn it, you fags don't have enough testosterone (in your stomachs maybe) in your body to muster up a good killing....besides they can't kill other men cause they are "to beautiful".

hey wifey---" don't tighten up....lighten up!" (the late great Richard Pryor)
wifey- May 6, 2010 at 6:45 pm
@rex: yup, I'm a female. And for the record, I generally like it around here and think the comments and shit are hilarious - even when off color - but I don't care for staff writers who make the obvious, unclever joke that reeks of homophobia.

Or maybe I just need to get that zucchini out of my ass and lighten up.

*Or maybe I just really miss old dad and haven't quite adjusted to the new dude yet.
ReX13- May 6, 2010 at 6:31 pm
Well, finally watched this "controversial" episode, and here's my (not) expert opinion:


I saw it going to the third round, but i didn't see it as some outrageous robbery. To be honest, i wasn't impressed with either fighter. Certainly not Ring.

On a side note, Ring amuses me to no end. I think his fruity little accent is probably the result of a childhood speech impediment that he's embraced as a way to make other people uncomfortable. As a fan of uncomfortable people, i be diggin it. He's funny, but damn, i wish he could fight like he was 10-0. C'mon dude, HIT SOMEBODY.

No use complaining about someone else being racist, homophobic (which is defined by it's popular use, not strictly by its etymology), retarted, having a bad day, etc. It's CP--there's a lot of assholes here. It's shocking we manage to get along at all.

Question: Is wifey a female? Just curious, because i can count the female users i know of on one hand. (Yes, i realize that there is a masturbation joke there waiting to happen.) How many women frequent this site? If it increases response, i' asking for this paper i'm writing for my sociology class...*

BryanF- May 6, 2010 at 5:35 pm
Man...sounds like I missed a crappy decision. It sounds like it should have gone to the third.

Well really, it is what it is for my boy Nick. Its his job to fight, not score the damn thing. Court McGee will inevitably get his shot in the UFC at the finale or something. After all, TUF is really just a show for the UFC to build up a few prospects rather than signing them right away. The right people will end up in the UFC despite whether or not they win the contract.: Florian, Koscheck, Evans, etc. anyone?

And as for the homophobia, that's to be expected in a male-saturated sport like MMA. I always find Nick hilarious because I know he's just playing things up to be funny and entertaining. He's a funny guy and everyone around town asks him if he's gay now, Nick just takes it all in stride and laughs it off.

Gay people are no more of a threat to anyone than straight people. What is wrong and dangerous are the people who are scared and threatened by it. Its close-minded, discriminatory, and simply wrong. But hey, you never hear about gay students going on rampages killing heterosexuals do you?

Preach on 'Boner. Keep that PC shit @ BE, fags.
ghostboner- May 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm
And for the record, I don't think Ring is gay, I think he is just an attention whore. He knew that this schtick would get him the most camera time, so he went with it. I don't blame him. I would have done the same thing.
ghostboner- May 6, 2010 at 3:27 pm
WTF is up with all these whining asses coming on CP and crying about homophobia? Seriously??? Apparently you are new to this site, but they make fun of everything. That is why I come here, and I will not have some whiny bitches taking it away from me. If anyone tries to introduce one ounce of political correctness into this website's articles, I will summon up the most loathsome demons of the pit and beset them upon you. Just fyi.

Also, Court got robbed! I bet they got his wallet too.
ghostboner- May 6, 2010 at 3:19 pm
After safely retrieving the missing zucchini, Nick "As soon as it is legal in Nevada I'm gonna present my boyfriend with a wedding" Ring was so overjoyed that he decided to use the newly tenderized vegetable to make a hot steamy loaf of zucchini bread for all is favorite big manly men in the TUF house.

Sorry, was comparing all other season because in general they're more fun than this. However I do agree that the 10th season was the worst one yet!

"Lame season so far" Compared to what last season? A bunch of no talent washed up ex NFL stars who none of which could fuck with anybody in the top 5 of the HW division.

Why do fags prefer ripped comdoms?

-Better traction in the mud.
HotPotato- May 6, 2010 at 12:51 pm
I just don't see why the author of this article are so upset by the decision, that's all. And why he shiatz on Nick Ring that much, seems to me like he's got some personal beef with him or sumthin..

Lame season so far.

"Patrick Says:
Thu, 05/06/2010 - 21:58

drainokills feels unbearable guilt about secretly watching gay porno so he goes on huge anti-gay tirades to say "look how much I hate fags! Somebody who hates them as much as me CAN'T POSSIBLY be gay! Being gay makes you a bad person and anyone who doesn't blindly hate fags is a retard! I'M NOT GAY!"

Whatever helps you sleep at night, homo."
you can always pull the fags out the woodwork, it is amazing that if you are offended by fags, and you say it, and you call a fag a fag, they get offended that you are calling them fags, and instead of saying "im a fag and Im offended that you offended you straight guy" , they instead try reverse psychology on you and call YOU a fag for daring to be offended.
Well Im here to tell you Patrick that your gay offense, and attempt to call me out because I dare to be straight, well it just offends me, so stop being a fag or at least shut up about it. And admit you gay and I offended your gay ass.
"wifey Says:You can be as much of a bigot as you want to be, but you're not getting paid for what you write on here. Or maybe you are. I don't know."
I thought me and you were cool but I can see right now we are NOT so let me clarify something, I didn't call him a honky fag, I just called him a fag so reel in your stupidity on the bigotry ok?
As for who gets paid to write anything, I hate to be the one to bear the burden of telling you this, but it's not one tiny bit any of your goddamn business what BEN or Newdad writes, if you don't like it go get a writing job of your own, and website to plug it in, and then spread your feeble opinion. everybody wants to bust on someones balls cause they think they have a right to tell someone what they can or cannot write get off your highhorse.
Oh and one more thing stop embellishing your posts, no one said I saw nick sucking a dick, I said he was a fag. I don't have to see him do an act to know it, again stop defending the fag.
