I said it before on another thread. i love watching TUF contestants fight on PPV's and SPIKE, but I hate it because only one of them can take the "W". Forrest and Stephan are good fighters and funny bastards. They are great for the sport. How can you not like these guys?
It looked like Stephan wanted this so bad that he was a little stiff. I think he respected Forrest's power too much. Yes, he was flinching as his corner was saying. Forrest came out like he was going to have fun. I think it boils down to confidence.
Anyway, getting back on topic, I think the Babalu stoppage was perfectly timed. Big John moved in at one point when Babalu was down and everyone I was watching the fight with yelled "Don't stop it!" He let it continue a few more seconds and then that shot that made Babalu turn his back was the coup de grace. NOBODY in a house of 15 people where I saw the fight thought it was a premature stoppage and most of them (all BJJ guys) wanted Babalu to win.
