UFC in Australia?

So, I guess the Aussies have there own Ultimate Fighter series, and the finals are tonight.

I wanted to sleep, but I just watched Lombard beat Palhares. He called out Bisbing afterwords. The final is Sotiropoulos vs Pearson. I guess I am going to be tired tomorrow.

For the record, lets blame humble for this.

Regards,

Watched one episode of the “smashes”

never again

I never thought I’d be so embarrassed to call myself Australian.

So, it really is a copy of TUF huh?

The fights are good so far.

Whitiker needs a jab, badly. It would set everything up for him.

I had no idea it wasn’t part of the regular TUF broadcast, I was under the impression they had just chosen aussies vs UK for the latest season, guess not.

But yeah at any rate, it’s a house full of douchebags looking for their 5 minutes of fame interspersed by a few decent fighters just looking for a foot into the UFC. Business as usual.

lol at Robert

CAUTION: MAY SPOIL IT SO DON’T READ ON IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT.

Davo, I agree. I was embarrassed by all their shit house abilities. Rob whitaker looked like ass. Ben’s front kick to Rodrigo was my highlight. That Rodrigo is an arrogant cunt, walks around at shows her in Sydney like he owns shit. Glad he got owned.

Hector did what he normally does but Palhares was a frightened little kitten which was very surprising.

Pearson fucked George up bad.

The two brits looked like fucken dog shit. I can’t believe that the little fucker sat their like a spastic with his neck braced by nothing, reaching trying to grab the freak with no fucking clue of a technique. Basic fucken neck grappling defence out the fucking door on more than one occasion. Throw him in the bin.

A world famous fighter said it best "When your striking sucks, pick up two pieces of heavy rope and throw them up and down, or grab a sledge hammer and hit it on a tyre. Now I’m ready. "

Sadly that is the state of MMA fighters today and with the advent of “UFC GYMS” I fear for the office worker warrior who will now think because he has a better double under skipping record than you that he will be able to slap you one in the cage.

Fuck MMA again.

Lol it’s disturbing to me how similar aussie culture is becoming to popular american culture.

It’s not that we haven’t always had dickheads but shit, I can’t tell the difference between guys like Rodrigo and jersey shore douchebags anymore besides the accents.

Anyway yeah, a much better performance for Lombard than his debut, but marred a little by how timid Palhares was I think, which was surprising as you pointed out.

Pearson looked fantastic though I was surprised. I never got all the circle jerking over G-sot’s supposedly fantastic boxing, I’ve always though his boxing was rudimentary at best and pearson highlighted that.

Fuck the rest of the smashes fellas, I didn’t even watch their fights.

Palhares broke his foot early on with bad leg kick. His striking has never been great, and that probably put the stamp on it.
