I know we have a bunch of Ultimate Fighting fans on here so I started this thread to chat about it. I'm not really into it but some of my friends compete and train at my gym. There are some general threads about martial arts or boxing, but this one can be specific to Ultimate Fighting.

Have Fun!

hey thanks for this! i didn't start a thread myself because i didn't think enough ppl knew about it. :D

so i caught the first show. the tension between shamrock and ortiz is gonna spill over sometime soon i think. but right now i am really looking forward to the rematch between andre arlovski and tim sylvia next week. then after that, the match between royce gracie and matt hughes in may. i can hardly wait for that.

i know there were a few luke cummo fans here. i thought you might like to know i just found out luke cummo won an easy decision over jason von flue last night at the ultimate fight night. you can read about that and the other fights here.

You can bet you bottom that's going to happen before it's over! I noticed it is much more "produced" this round. So I think they will be "put into situations" to help it along.

Me and the wiferoo are big UFC fans. In the pre-show fights last night, I thought Stephan Bonner got a gift win over that Layne Staley-looking dude. Bonner looked very vulnerable.

The Shamrock-Ortiz rivalry is an obvious selling point of the season, but I honestly started feeling like it got to be just slightly foolish during the show. I almost hope they just get it over with next episode and move on. Despite his fighter losing, I think Ortiz seems like a much better coach so far. It's a little old-skool vs new-skool - and it's hard to believe that Shamrock doesn't have a ground-game guy on his coaching staff.

The next UFC is going to be awesome. I think Ortiz is going to kill Forrest Griffin. I don't see that getting past the 1st round. And as humbled as I think Tim Sylvia is after the Mir and Arlovsky losses, and as much as he seems like he is training his butt off for this fight, Arlovsky is a freak. I see him holding the belt for a while longer.

bonner lost, bad decision by the refs as usual.

jeff monson is going to crush whoever (arlovsky) wins the title fight. none of the heavyweights hold a candle to the pride heavyweights though.

Tito will destroy Forrest because Randy is the only guy with the cardio of Tito, so Forrest's only chance is a KO or TKO, but that isn't going to happen.

I don't think anyone in the UFC is going to be able beat Arlovski maybe some of the Pride guys but probaly not

i have caught a few of the pride showcases over on the FSN channel. i was very impressed with "cro-cop", antonio nogueira, and especially the emelianenko brothers, fedor and aleksander. those two are monsters in the ring. aleksander looks unstoppable right now. in 3 of his last 4 fights, he has knocked out his opponent within 30 seconds of the first round.

in the next ppv, i think arlovsky takes it too. at least that is what i would like to see.

i remember someone here mentioning at the end of this season when the finals are televised live, that the coaches, ortiz and shamrock were going to have a rematch. anyone else heard this?

Crocop's kicks are friggin brutal.
Fedor Emilianenko is probably the top heavyweight fighter in the world at the moment.

I'm just wondering with this new season of TUF, since they're doing away with the challenges every week what they're going to do to fill time instead. Usually the challenge filled up like 20 min. or so of the show. These guys seem a bit wilder than last season's cast so they may fill the time with them getting drunk alot and acting like jackasses like with the first season.

yeah i don't much care for the new format either. like we need to see any more footage of them drinking and shaving each other. and yeah, these fighters seem more stupid than i remember the others being. and how are there people on the show who have 10 years MMA experience and others who claim to have less than 6 months.

I don't necessarily dislike the new format, I'm gonna have to wait and see what they actually do.
Hopefully it will end up being 2 fights per episode instead of the challenges.

i dunno... with 2 fights per show it would be a pretty short season. i'm also wondering what they are gonna fill up the time with. i guess we're gonna get to know the fighters real well this season.

i caught the encore of the first show saturday night. answered my own question when i caught the opening i missed the first time. there will definitely be a rematch between ortiz and shamrock at the finale. they are gonna hype this up all season. maybe that's what the extra time will be dedicated to, hype up the finale.

Yeah, building up to a rematch was always the plan going in, and the reason they got Shamrock and Ortiz on as coaches in the first place.
