And he didn't even seem to put much effort into fighting off the takedowns either. Should be an interesting season to watch.

And +1 on the blood - that was a naaasty cut!

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

Rampage told Abe Wagner that John Madsen was only "average" as a wrestler.

Madsen is a 2 time NCAA Div II Champion, and 1-0 vs Lesnar at the high school level.

Rampage, once again, is a ****ty coach and an even ****tier corner.

I'm a huge fan of Rampage, but man.....he really is terrible at cornering a fighter. "You gotta do something!" is not helpful instruction

+1 for Evans picking up Greg Jackson, and -1 for Rampage for not doing the same. Hopefully he can bring in some decent guys to work with his team, or this season will be one sided in terms of talent development.

Big country minus the gut ftw this season. Or maybe with the gut, because that is the source of his powers.

Marcus Jones could also win this season if he can half fight. He is GIGANTIC!

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

They look like they actually have talented fighters this season.

I'm actually pulling for Kimbo due to the fact that I don't like everyone talking crap on him. They hate him because he's not a "real" fighter or something but he's just as real of a fighter as any of them.


Most seasons have some pretty terrible fighters though, so at least some of these guys look good.

Although there sure are a lot of style mismatches on this show.

Re: TUF 10 - heavyweights

I wish I could tell all of you what happens. I have seen through episode 4 and will be getting the rest this week.

What I like about this season is that it's not so much about acting like idiots in the house. These are guys are trying to make it. period

Anyway, you have to love Kimbo after watching this season. He is one hell of an athlete, humble, and simply making money.

And all I know about Kimbo was his "street certified" credentials, which I assumed like everyone else he was a "fake." However, let me be the first to say that after spending a significant amount of time with Kimbo, I now know those assumptions couldn't be further from the truth. Kimbo is a good fighter and very talented not to mention a great guy. I'm a huge fan."
I still dont get why people would think he was a fake with no skills because he was "just a street fighter". He fought hundreds of people. Yeah he might not have had some of the technical skills of some guys but to assume he was worthless as a fighter is plain dumb. Good on Schaub for writing this but he shouldnt have assumed it in the first place.

I will say that every interview Ive ever seen Kimbo do he has been pretty articulate and humble. Now it could all be an act, but I have no reason to believe otherwise. Definitely pulling for Kimbo and I will be back stateside soon so I can actually watch some more MMA, TUF and otherwise!!
