i had just read what matt had typed up about the semi'brackets for tuf 5. i believe i remebering hearing that too. that it would be teammate vs teammate. but just to confirm i was on the ufc site and was looking over the schedule and found an interesting spoiler. as you guys know the last two episodes of tuf 5 will air back to back well when i looked at the two tuf timings on the calender they have. the first show simply spoke about the confrontation b/w karo and nate. but on the second one, heres what it said 'maynard faces nate diaz in the last semi to determine who will fight manny G in the finale'. well they just gave away the first finalist and if going by rumours circulating through out it should be a nate manny finale. im just wondering why would they say teammate vs teammate on todays show when it obvis isnt the case.

TV promos for most shows for the upcoming episodes are almost always misleading to make the next episode seem more interesting.

Nate is fighting Manny in the semi-finals, so no it is not Nate vs Manny in the finale. That would be like....Impossible?? :blink: :blink:

sorry for the double post but i noticed a 'click here for more info' tab and heres a direct link to anyone having trouble finding this...

that for the second show. it doesnt give away the winner of the first semi but clearly states the remaining semi is b/w nate and gray eliminating the whole 'teammate vs teammate' concept. the earlier post with the link still shows manny so you can still check that one out

ya i checked it out and that is weird... hmm i think ppl saw the clip of next week of jens flippin out cuz he doesnt want it to be teammate vs teammate maybe dana listens to him and decides that is how it should go?? but i guess for the best finals match the semis should be teammate vs teammate that is just how it falls

so this suggests that Manny defeats Lauzon?

i'm glad to hear this, but i can't imagine HOW manny pulled it off.

the only way i see it happening is by submission. maybe a kimura.

The Ultimate Fighter® 5 episode 12
Premiere: Thursday, 6/14 at 11:00pm
Reairs: Thursday, 6/21 at 11:00pm and Saturday, 6/23 at 8:00pm

It’s mayhem at the Ultimate Fighter House as the fighters go stir crazy. And Gray Maynard faces Nate Diaz in the last semi-final match to determine who will move on to fight in the live finale on June 23rd at the Palms Hotel. so it does not state any thing about manny being in the finale

yeah i was over it right now and they obvis changed it. manny's name was put in right in between that line 'to determine who will move on to fight MANNY G. in the live finale'. i bet dana was reading my thread... lol
well either ways it should atleast prove that the semis are going to be a pulver vs penn semi instead of a team mate vs team mate. like the poste above im curious to see how manny takes out lauzon. to be honest i think maybe a desicion (split)

I disagree, this is a team concept until the finals........why change it in the semi's. Team Pulver vs. Team Penn until the finals!!!! It wouldn't be the first time teamates have faught in the finals.

Posted on the main site that it will be teammate vs teammate so its going to be Joe vs Grey and Nate vs Manny.

Hey guys, when you open up the official UFC web site, pay attention to the banner about tomorrow night's TUF, it cleary states Lauzon vs. Gamburyan and Diaz vs Maynard...

thnx for tht blazeallwayz. yup i guess that confirms its not going to be team mate vs team mate.

Well looks like the main site is wrong.


The forums over at the ultimate fighter seem to believe that it will be teammate vs teammate also

The whole show is ment to make to believe things and not happen, so they want you to think its Joe vs Manny and Diaz vs Grey thats the logic choice. But seeing this season has been different i would belive anything at this point.

Also it says it was announced on ufn last night that it would be teammate vs teammate

yup they just gave that away on another site too except they were slower than u =P they put up the version w/o Manny G. in it so props to u for finding it so fast ^_^ but i am glad that Joe loses i think Cole pointed out holes in his game so he is not invincible like every1 on this board thought =P

It's interesting that Manny would end up fighting Nate in the finals (if the rumour is true) considering the drama that's unfolded between Karo, Manny, and Nate. Coincidence? Better bullshit TV? Making a rivalry to help support the card in which BJ Penn is going to crush Pulver? I dunno...

if this is true, this blows ass. manny is the biggest tool. he's so full of himself and spends all of his time up karo's ass...and Diaz is a pothead...

Joe vs Gray would have been the best fight.
