Update: Bowman injured his knee in last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6, which required surgery to repair.

(Note: Steve Cofield will have exclusive first interviews with each ousted fighter every Thursday throughout the sixth season of The Ultimate Fighter.)


BLAKE BOWMAN ANSWERS CRITICS, SAYS HUGHES IS A JERK, CALLS DORIAN PRICE CRAZY AND VOWS TO MAKE IT IN THE UFC! (http://mrsunshinevegas.wordpress.com/2007/10/11/blake-bowman-answers-critics-says-hughes-is-a-jerk-calls-dorian-price-crazy-and-vows-to-make-it-in-the-ufc/)

I can’t remember being more pissed off after an episode of TUF than I was following the latest episode. I walked away thinking how in the hell did this kid Blake get on the show.

Is the talent pool that thin around the country?

Bowman popped on the phone to answer my criticisms. The kid won me over. His confidence is unyielding and he was brutally candid about the show and the other cast members. See what you think.

Bowman blamed his lousy performance on the knee injury he suffered.

Bowman says he knows a few thousand Matt Hughes-types. Calling him a typical jock with an elitist attitude. He said Hughes wasn’t a very good coach and the jiu-jitsu training was laughable. But in the same breath, he said Hughes was a quality person at times.

Did he even belong on this show? He took that one head on.

His background is interesting. He looked like the rest of us, a few years back…a fat slob. He once weighed 240 lbs.

He also addresses how a guy who is 0-0 professionally gets a spot on TUF.

In part two, Bowman says Dorian’s threat to the Spike TV crew member..was legit. Not a TV stunt. Price is simply wacky, according to Bowman.
He said with a healthy knee, no way Richie Hightower beats him.
The Georgian also laughs off the criticism that we see on the show coming from teammate Mac Danzig.

I know the editing has a lot to do with the way these fighters appear on the show, but once the fight was announced by Serra I couldn't believe these two guys were even there when comparing them to the others. I wasn't impressed by either of them. However, *spoiler* I did pick Ritchie to win so I'm on a role this season.

shouldnt this be in the ultimate figher section

well i could be wrong since no one knows who the finalists are...but ill bet that Hightower doesnt make it to the finals. and if so, then have him and Blake rematch on the finale and see if Blake was right, or if he just cant beat Richie Hightower. i was actually very entertained by their brutal, yet very very very brief, exchanges LOL

If Blake took out his ACL there is no way hes fighting by the time of the finale. Even tearing another ligament wouldnt allow him to train for the fight at all.

Between Blake, Joey, & Dorian Dana has all the whiny-waif boybander look-alikes he could want... & we know Dana likes em small & young!! What a joke!! Blake= another stick-boy who flops to the mat when hit; a total disgrace; yet not surprising!!!! NEXT SEASON TRY getting some real fighters; instead of anorexic whiny kids!!!! MAYBE EVEN SOME HV weights DUHHH!!!!

*sniffs* So that's what a troll smells like. Ok, good, glad we got that out of the way.

Blake needs to take his finger off the trigger, and whipe the blood off. I will say though I am a blake fan and I can't wait to see him fighting at 100%.

10-17-2007, 06:36 AM
so Matt Hughes is a jerk?

Holy Hell!

Someone call CNN, Fox News, or ESPN. So glad Bowman came to the party. I can't wait to see him on the undercard of Corey Hill's next strip club fight night.

So Blake Showman,I mean Bowman,is talking shit about Matt Hughes,even after Hughes pretty much stuck up for him on episode 5,& told Danzig that he should,in so many words,be ashamed of himself for making fun of Bowman.The truth is,he's not a fighter,as Danzig said,& he never would've even hurt his knee if he hadn't have jumped to the canvas knees 1st,in a sort of diving away from danger effort that just looked ridiculous the more I saw it.If anybody ever needed to go home after losing,it was Blake Bowman!:lurker: :lurker: :wah: :wah:

I think Richie will be one of the better fighters to come off this show. I got a feeling.

10-24-2007, 06:20 PM
Blake Bowman? Hmmm, the name doesn't ring a bell.

10-27-2007, 12:18 PM
this comes from a little douche who can't fight and blows his knee out in what 12 seconds? what a fag, he should just drop off the face of the planet.

Who is Blake Bowman and why is he in the same sentence as Matt Hughes? Matt Hughes doesn't seem like the ass to me... Serra is the one who can't stop talking about him. I am counting the days when Serra gets choked out by Hughes and we can finally have the real match with GSP. Out!
