    I'm working my way through this season of TUF and i just watched this ep. Up to this point in the show this is what i think:

    Mitrione (sp?) has some issues to say the least. I really hope someone beats his ass by the end of this season.

    Wes Sims is hilarious, if they ever do a roast of an MMA fighter they should have Sims host the event lol.

    I'm surprised at Rampages lack of coaching skill, but i'm glad his team makes up for that.

    I'm surprised at almost everything Rashad says, i'll admit I judged his book by it's cover and didn't think he had that coaching ability.
    (I expected Rashad to act more like Rampage and vice versa)

    I wanted Junk to win this fight, i thought he looked good in training, but it didn't seem to come out so much in the cage for whatever reason.

    I Think that Kimbo probably would've fared better on Team Rashad, and Roy probably would've fit in better with Team Rampage. Kimbo seems to actually want to better himself, and with Rampages lack of coaching ability, regardless I didn't think he was going to have a real chance against Roy Nelson with what i saw from him on the show. Roy seems to want to work on what HE wants to work on, and Team Rampage didn't seem to be as active in their teams training.

    I feel bad for titties, i'm guessing that he was probably a fan of Rampage's to some degree before this show lol, but getting in Rampage's face is probably never a good idea.

    Worst of all, Rampage walks away from his fighter that just lost and took a major blow to his dream. I don't care what coaching skills you do or don't have, if you're in the corner for a fighter, you don't leave unless that fighter needs something and it's your job to leave. You all walk in together and you all walk out together.

    I am almost sure that Marcus is going to win and at least put a 7-1. 7-1 is embarrasing anyway

    Since cardio has been a major problem on all tuf seasons that's probably not a bad idea

    the question is, if rashad does indeed to 8-0, will rampage just leave? i guess rashad could split up his coaches to get through the rest of the fights, and the infighting alone would create some good tv.

    So you don't think having a pulled Achilles and a torn retina would affect your performance in any way?

    Having an injured Achilles would definitely cause movement problems and I remember thinking Junk got poked in the eye early in the first round. As someone who has had an eye injury (though nothing as serious as a torn retina), there is no way this didn't have a HUGE impact on the fight.

    I think Scott is a good fighter who just needs to translate his practice attitude and training into the actual fight. Once Scott can do that, he will be a force to be reckoned with for sure. One thing that did happen to Junk before the fight was while in the process of warming up he injured his Achilles' heel bad, which I think limited his movement.

    Also, in the fight, if you look closely, Scott's eyelid is inside out. He accidentally caught a finger from Matt. He lost almost all his eye sight after this, which happened in the first minute of the fight. He ended up having a torn retina.
