Kendall's 2 bits' worth makes sense. If I wanted melodrama, I'd go to a family reunion or watch WWE. I liked the idea of "TUF" when it first came out and for about the first few seasons. Childish antics & douchebags get tired after a while, and when assholes get penalized, it's like their punishments are about as solid as James Toney's midsection. Jesse Taylor, Junie Browning, and other fuckwits got penalized and yet they've all fought for Zuffa for a while. The candidate screening process for "TUF" isn't worth two squirts of piss in a bucket. Christ - if a rank amateur like Corey Hill can bullshit his way to the house, those motherfuckers have some explaining to do. Goddamnit Dana, your punishments don't matter in the least until you grow a fucking pair of balls. Oooh... Dana's gonna give his "Do you want to be a fuckin' fighter" speech yet again. Maybe he should listen to his own yammering bullshit.

I stopped giving a dry fuck about "TUF" years ago, and none of that shit ever really mattered. It was a nice experiment, but I'd rather see a "day in the life of" type series of the fighters for a big event than putting a bunch of alcoholic jizzmonkeys in a big house...unless it's "Oz." That shit was great.

^^^if what Grove is saying is true then, IMO, Yeager got his spot by being black with a big fro and some skills. If anything, they prolly figured he'd be good at bein' a loudmouth prick and at least give them their moneys-worth in drama... he can talk shit, he just can't back it up as well. I still think he'll get better and stay in the UFC for a couple more fights, maybe burn through a few other TUF alums.

Nice summary almost, saved me some time, and Seoul Bro has a very good point, I mean what kind of screening did Yager go through, he basically has no MMA skills and as soon as he gets hit he crumbles, how the fuck did he get a start on the show let alone the finale card.

Awe... it's McSweetie and his papabear. He sure likes 'em furry!

I agree with Clyde, Jan Finney is in way over her head. She wont make it out of the first round. Look for Cyborg to slaughter this poor Lamb.
Also Carwin will KO Brock, His nice guy act is just that,....an Act.
Clyde- June 23, 2010 at 7:37 am
I really wasn't expecting Jan finney to cuddle Cyborg. In fact after the fight she may be shying away from all physical contact for the foreseeable future, pending an intensive course of therapy. Best of luck to her.

Carwin isn't doing enough to sell the fight? Carwin has done everything he needs to do to make me want to see this fight. He's trampled over every poor bastard put in front of him and he's fighting a guy I don't want to see win, humble new attitude or not.

Man, Ricco Rodriguez has really fallen off the wagon.

- Haha, OK pal cool story

- I wouldn't either

- Top ten lists stopped being interesting in 1998

- Carwin should register at CP, he is a funny dude in text

- Sure sucks to be a prelim guy if you are trying to make a living as a fighter

- That would explain some things

- I was going to listen to this last one but then I read "Ben Rothwell shares tons of stories and thoughts from his fight with Gilbert Yvel. " and I am not ready to fall asleep yet today.

Some nice links today CP. That picture is horrifying.
