    Saw every episode. Shamrock has been washed up for about 5 years. It was nice to see Tito smoke him again.

    Tito is a pussy who will never be able to beat the top fighters in the ufc,also if he is foolish enough to accept vanderlei silva`s offer of a match he will get hurt badly.

    I've only recently started to watch UFC and I must pose the question is the Shamrock/Ortiz rivalry over acted! I know that theres no doubt the fights are real but is the pre match build up just like WWF wrestling no?

    Another thing do tou think Earb Deane was right in his decision to call a stoppage against Shamrock in the Ortiz match??Personally I would have liked to have seen it go a bit longer and the crowd certainly did!

    The rivalry is real... they hate eachother and the ufc capaitalised on that to draw more interest to the fight and the series...
    I think considering the circumstances the ref was right to stop the fight.... shamrock was stunned and taking elbows to the face and the ref would have known the background and known that ortiz was looking to damage him...
    he stopped it as a favour to shamrock

    Tito is a good fighter but one of his strengths is that he works on his weaknesses.... he's improving all the time.
    And i thought he was excellent as a coach on the ultimate fighter... pissed all over ken shamrock's coaching

    Yep, Pride and also K1 for the stand-up fighting. I think that plenty of UFC fighters who also played in Pride.

    I have watched them all and I still think the first Ultimate Fighter reality show was the best, it had characters.The 2nd show was poor, the third has been watchable but still doesn't compare with the first show.

    Nevertheless I haven't missed an episode of any show.

    BTW anybody see the beating Leben took recently.

    I didn't see that... but after seeing leben on ultimate fighter 1 i have to say i felt sorry for him... he was kinda annoying at first but it became clear that he's a troubled soul... he was like a big mixed up kid... and those 2, josh and bobby were totally out of order with him... showed what a pair of nasty fukers they are

    in case you didn't get the joke, there is a gay as in homosexual event called pride.... and there is also a mma fighting event also called pride.

    But if you did get the joke and you just didn't think it was funny then fair enough

    If Liddell beats Babalu at UFC 62, He's going to fight Silva in a battle of Champions. That is going to be a sick fight.

    apparently vanderlei came into the ring for a bit of eyeballing at the last ufc,chuck liddel was battered by a guy called rampage a few years ago in a cross code competition and in the next fight silva beat the crap out of rampage.i predict chuck will last all of 5 minutes with silva before he is seeing stars.

    Silva's a beast. I hope he knocks the hell out of Liddell. I can't stand him, especially since he wears that mohawk with the Chinese symbol tattoos on the side of his head. He looks like a putz.

    BTW, that was Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.

    Jackson left Pride after his his fight at Pride 31. He signed with a new organization: WFA - World Fighting Alliance. He won his first match against Matt Lindland by split decision last weekend.

    Bisping is the real deal, but he is in probably the most competitive weight class in the UFC. Liddell, Babalu, Horn, Ortiz, Griffin, Bonnar, and so on. It will be interesting to see how he does when he starts fighting the top guys in his weight class.

    Anyone watching Ultimate Fighter Season 4? From the first episode it looks like it will be pretty good.

    it looks very good... don't know why shonie carter won his fight though... all he did was stay on top of the other guy as much as possible.
    the other guy ( cant remember his name! ) took shonie down more times than the other way round.. he went for far more submissions than shonie did and he struck shonie more ( see shonies battered face at the end? )
    If that's not enough to win... what is?

    In the fights that go to the judges, they always seem to go with the guy who spent most of the fight on top, regardless of whether they were actually doing anything.

    so it seems... but you'd think that judges for these type of fights would be aware of the technicalities of that form of fighting

    They don't seem to understand that being on the bottom doesn't mean you can't do any damage. Shonie was getting hit with all kinds of shots during that fight, but that didn't seem to matter. :confused:

    that's what i thought... shonie was busted up and exhausted at the end and the other guy seemed pretty fresh and mark free.... maybe they wanted to keep him in the show cos he's a character... a retarded character, but still a character

    BTW, did you see how bad Dewees was cut. That elbow was pretty vicious. I'm surprised they didn't stop the fight.

    Dewees' hair turned completely blood red. His whole head, it wasn't a really bad cut, it just bled like crazy. I was actually surprised he didn't pass out from the blood loss.

    Anyone see the PPV yesterday? The Liddell & Babalu fight was a joke and Griffin-Bonnar II wasn't that good. I wish I could get my money back!! :mad: :annoyed: :mad:

    i saw it last night... fukin hell... that was kinda nasty... if i was the guy on the bottom i would've been more scared of getting his blood on me than any strikes or submissions...
    imagine if it dripped in his mouth

    saw that too.... it's a pity when fights finish so quick but liddell did the business.... it was babalu's fault really, he should have been more cautious against someone who strikes like liddell
