Anyone watched the 1st episode?
IMO there is actually not a lot to talk about. The fight was pretty boring, actually the wretsler tried to do some things, he tried to change positions, to do GnP but he was not succesful so at the end it looked like a total LnP fight.
Sucks for the guy that got injured, but who is the new guy? Where did he come from?
The verbal coaching was pretty weak IMO, both of them looked more like fans shouting than real coaches giving good advices. I dont really blame them, I dont expect them to be great coaches, they are relatively new in the sport actually.
At the end as always we saw some footage of brawls inside the house, well it happens absolutely every season, so we will see who will be the douchebag this time. BTW I would like to know what the ratings are, The first episode of TUF is the biggest in history with 2.9, it was because of Kimbo. I would like to see if Brock can beat that.

Yea, fight was terrible. I almost had to give it to the guy that lost, I mean, the guy that won, sure he out wrestled the hell out of the other guy but other than that, what did he do? Nothing? A weak few punches towards the end of the fight. I mean, it's great to control someone but I've never seen anyone get KO'ed by being "controlled" and "held down", nor have I ever seen anyone submitted by it, so how does that really mean anything in scoring? The best it does is put you in positions to win and considering someone was in the position to win the entire fight and didn't finish, that tells me a lot.
The other thing is that it appears submission attempts don't mean squat. They do damage, but the non-damaging "controlling" or "holding down" a fighter seem to score more points with judges? If someone has you in a submission attempt, bending your arm, cranking your neck, etc. that does damage! It freaking hurts and it stays with you through the fight, most of the time more than a punch would.
Sorry, just was thinking about how judges judge fights and started ranting.
Episode was kinda weird lol. Nothing really happened. Coaches are really laid back and friendly to each other. No drama. Previews didn't really show anyone being too crazy. Weird season.
