I know it's because it was the first episode, but way too much time was spent on fighter's families & back stories...yeah we get it, seems half of you are here because you have families to feed, the other half fight because of various issues stemming from childhood, etc.

It might be do to with editing, but Rhonda's coming off as a bit of a self centered *itch.

Yeah, I was fast-forwarding the family crap. I don't know them and don't care at all about their family situation. I just want to see the fights. Spend less time on family crap and more time on fights.

As for Ronda's reaction when Meisha shows up, Ronda thought Dana was using Meisha to replaced her (not Cat) & that's why she got pissed. Apparently Ronda now has a "Hollywood lawyer" (Dana's words), who called making some "bull$h!t" demands & Dana got rather heated about it. Guess Ronda felt like Dana might get a little vindictive about it.
Anyone notice how I spelled Tate's name both ways 'cause I couldn't remember how to spell it?

Unless we're talking about the family of Cody Bollinger, right?

great fight last nite! glad to see shayna got her cocky ass handed to her .. LOL .. i mean, you're in the house for a reason, so saying someone doesn't belong in the same cage as you, or as ronda put it, breathe the same air is kinda cocky ... ronda still coming off as a whiny cry baby ...

Yeah, definitely liked the upset. That Pena chick hits hard (for a girl). ;)

Very glad Shayna got her ass beat down. She needs to learn some humility. After the loss, Rhonda should have straight up told her 'no, you're not three times the fighter she is, you've simply been doing it three times longer'. But no, instead she agrees and tries to massage her bruised ego.

And yeah Mike, that chick does hit hard! I'd like to see her throw some kicks...she has legs like tree trunks.

I knew it wasn't going to be an easy fight for Shayna. Rhonda should have used logic instead of petty vindictiveness and went for a much better match up. Waste of a winning coin toss IMO.

The pre-fight talk about "You're the best, you got this easy, etc. etc." was a big coaching mistake. They coached her to underestimate her opponent.

Absolutely. I'm beginning to think Rhonda's last name should be Diaz...lots of whining and chest thumping at the same time.

i guess i fell for the editing hype .. LOL .. cuz i was praying that the pena girl would get through the fight without being too hurt ...

She's good friends with the Diaz brothers, if that tells you anything about her attitude. I think she's pretty hot and a great fighter, but always thought she was super cocky.

Being cocky can be a very good thing for a fighter, as long as it doesn't go so far as to make you underestimate your opponents. You have to know that you can win every fight without thinking you can do it easily without even trying, or that your opponent doesn't even deserve to be in there with you. That's how you end up getting thumped.

I couldn't make myself watch this season and going off of the ads they show I still don't want to watch it. It looked like one stupid girl coach was about to cry about the other girl coach being mean to her. Yuck. I'll just read what you guys write about it. :laugh:

yeah .. if dana wants to give more legitamacy to the womens division, he needs to edit out the crying and the cat fights .. i mean, the guys do it do when they coach, they just don't cry ...

I'd actually like to see 4 teams total with hall of fame coaches who don't fight at the end of it. Just coach and build the competition with the coaches by making the losing coach do something silly at the next fight or have a cash prize to the coach for the winning team. Less house antics and emotional drama, more training and technique. I'm absolutely not the demographic they are aiming this stuff at so I'm not going to get what I want. The young men they are marketing to apparently like the crying drama. :laugh:

So you want Bellator Fight Master, essentially. I actually enjoyed this inaugural season of it, myself.

My PVR for some reason didn't record episode 3 :muttering:

So anything much happen beyond the bar yelling scene? Did Rhonda showcase her super bitch side again?

Sounds like the fight was decent, albeit brief.

Well, Ronda went to get something from the bar, & Meisha apparently felt that Ronda was standing too close to Bryan Caraway, so she started puffing up & demanding Ronda move. Ronda didn't, so Meisha started trying to squeeze herself between Ronda & Bryan. The whole time, Bryan's trying to tell Meisha to chill out & leave it alone, then somebody says something about the fight, Ronda says she'll punch Meisha in the mouth, Meisha says Ronda doesn't even know how to hit pads, the Ronda calls over Edward (her striking coach), who is apparently still super-pissed at Bryan over the "punch Ronda's teeth down her throat" tweet from last year, and he starts promising to see Bryan "when the cameras aren't around", etc., etc., etc.

No one came off looking good, but Edward came off looking the kookiest, IMO.
