OK, so I've only watch 2 episodes this year, so as I sit here at "work" (weekend guy in a leasing office) I've got tons of free time to sit back & watch the marathon on Justin.tv. I'll finally get to watch all of Bisping's douchebaggery!!!

OK, so I slept through the English trials (hurrah!!), but I'm tuning into the US now.

-Miller/Knab: pretty f'ed up if Dana chose to put the teammates against each other. I mean, if it was just a ratings thing, then it would have worked better later in the season after we got to see what good buddies.
-Richie/Paul: I hate guys who talk about "Once that cage door closes, I can legally do whatever I want." Guys like that are still thinking of the UFC Dark Ages, not of the athletic competition that it really is.
-Lowe/Defranco: Man, after looking thoroughly craptastic the first round, Defranco turned it up in that 2nd round. If he's that close to quitting in a prelim fight, though, how's he going to handle an elimination bought against the UK?
-Berger/Pierce: Woo-hoo?
-Dollar/Hayden: Nice comeback, but not certain he'l ldo too much for Team USA
-Johnson/Elbe: "I'm here to get paid & hurt people's feelings". :laugh: I remember liking DJ The first time I heard that. Elbe's MT is pretty obvious. Standing straight up, lotsa kicks, oooo lead elbow! Wow, MT guy goes for the TD? Prolly not the best idea against a Jeremy Horn disciple!! :laugh: Nice elbows from mount, good control while Elbe tries to shuck him off. Great finish, Elbe looks like he got run over.

O man, I completely forgot that Mini-Browning was on for an episode. Faaaaaaaantastic.

So far I think I'm going to like Ross Pearson, Andre Winner & Demarques Johnson.

Pretty bummed that Keil didn't make it, I would have loved to have a Miletich & Horn fighter working together.

Haha "He's the toughest guy on our team, hands down!" Setting him up to fail & make UK look good, huh editors?

:laugh: :laugh:No, I was going to post a video response, but my camera's fugged up again, so I couldn't. By the time I got it working, it'd been too long, so I just decided to forget it.

Answer me this, though, Dave: if you challenge me to a football (i.e. soccer) match, & I show up & play an American football game, do I win the match if I score more touchdowns? Nope. If I don't play by the rules, I either lose outright (like you did), or I'll get DQed, which also counts as a loss. Just because you're not smart enough to check the rules doesn't mean you have t oabide by them.

Tell yourself what ever you like, Dave, but you lost & I won.

As for the pranking going on right now, I think it's within acceptable limits...for now. They're not yet going into private spaces or destroying property, just "decorating" it a bit. As long as it stay at this at this level & doesn't escalate too much beyond this, I think we'll be good.

Good first round, very back & forth. A lot of fun to watch.

Nice head kick on to end that fight. Both guys were tired.

Winner/Defranco is going to be a pretty easy win for UK. Santino seems to lack a bit of heart. Even Dan's not confident in him "he could win."

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 06:26 PM
Great fight for Andre! Santino looked overwhelmed the entire time. Only thing that sucks is that now I've got to hear Bisping gloat. I really don't hate team UK, I just hate their coach.

DeMarques/Dean should be fun. I guess I already know who wins, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 06:53 PM
WTF, where's Bisping? Man, I thought it was unprofessional when Rampage missed the semi-final match-up debates, but this is worse, this is fight day. Dean needs everything pre-fight to be smooth and perfect to get his mind right. By not having his coach & not having an explanation, he's not able to focus on the fight.

Hahaha, he lost by triangle! I bet Bisping is gonna be PISSED when he finds out!! Hahahahaha

"Just seeing the Americans celebrating after beating one of our guys pissed me off!"

Really??? And how do you feel about Bisping's antics? Hyprocitical, much?

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 07:26 PM
Man, Dollar tore him up. I'm actually disappointed, I really wanted Stapes to win, he's a nice guy & Dollar came off like a wannabe $h!t-talker. O well, at least I don't have to hear Bisping talk now.

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 07:27 PM
Lester/Wilkes should be an interesting fight. Again, I guess I already know who wins, but I'm looking forward to seeing Wilkes throwdown.

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 08:01 PM
Eh, not overly impressed. I mean, cool that he was able to knock a coupla teeth out, but Lester's not that great a fighter & Wilkes didn't really outshine him by that much.

Pierce looks pissy all the time, Dave is being built up hard-core & Dent is hopping on his high-horse. With nothing else to do, I'm sure everyone sits around & talks about everyone else. It's not a friendship thing, it's a boredom thing. Stop sewing strife & just get over it.

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 08:32 PM
Richie/Ross, yet another where I already know the outcome. O well, war Ross!!

06-20-2009, 08:39 PM
Man, Dollar a whiner!

VCURamFan
06-20-2009, 09:00 PM
Nice armbar transition! I could tell he was too high up & that Richie ws going to shake him off, but good job by Ross to latch onto that arm & finish anyway!!

OK, well works over, so now I'm off to home & no cable. I'll have to invade a friend's place tonight to watch the fights.

don't you already know who's in the finals lolHaha, I was referring to attitudes, not fighting technique, but yeah, I had seen a spoiler. I had actually heard the spoiler back during episode 2. I was watching on justin.tv (don't have cable at home) & someone in the chat window threw out the finalists. Between that & the pain of not having cable, I lost interest.

Overall, the season was OK. I was glad to see more fights/training and less house drama. I just wish they picked better fighters to be on the show. Very few of them seemed to posess any real skill.
