The Ultimate Fighter Season 5 Finale

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

By Erin Bucknell A very interesting juxtaposition between the two sets of “major” fights tonight. Where Nate and Manny are pretty much “I just want to win the fight”, Jens and BJ are much more of the “I just want to want to beat his ass”. Manvel “The Anvil”? Oh dear, that’s just unfortunate.

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

By Erin Bucknell Episode 11 Karo is very happy with Manny’s win and is sure he will take it all. Nick and Karo mess around with each other, which then escalates to them really getting pissed at each other. Wha? Huh? Apparently Karo got too touchy-feely with Nate who took exception to this. Not exactly […]

The Ultimate Fighter Season 5 Episode 9

Thursday, May 31st, 2007

By Erin Bucknell Brandon says that he’s run down from his first fight and trying to cut weight. He’s also apparently not a fan of Jens’ coaching style. They get into a bit of a kerfuffel over whether or not Brandon is giving enough. This leads to Brandon having a bit of a cry. Good […]

UFC: Liddell vs. Jackson

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

By Erin Bucknell Well, well, Dan Henderson is announced as the challenger for whoever wins Liddell vs. Jackson. Which is cool, but having Rogan and Goldberg announce this almost pre-show? Kinda anti-climatic, isn’t it?

The Ultimate Fighter Season 5, Episode 8

Thursday, May 24th, 2007

By Erin Bucknell Dana brings the coaches into the gym to discuss the upcoming matches. Oh, this is a good plan, let’s stick Jens and BJ in a small room together for a long period of time and get them to agree on things. Yeah, good thinking there. Predictably Jens and BJ start squabbling with […]

The Ultimate Fighter Season 5, Episode 7

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

By Erin Bucknell Whoa it’s another two fight show. Does that mean we won’t get our weekly dose of Drama? Horrible. Who needs fights when we can watch pig outs and break downs? Recap of Lauzon destroying Geraghty and Hill vs. Emerson. Dana gives BJ a talking to because of his team is losing. Which […]

Fight Opinion Radio #49: The future of MMA

Thursday, May 17th, 2007

No guest this week, as we’re too busy ranting angrily about the latest happenings in MMA. Will 2007 be known as the year that all of UFC’s major competition folds (PRIDE, IFL, etc.)?
