I might crash and burn on this Tuf finale. I went with a lot of consensus underdogs; Gadelha, Silva, Ferreira, Lee and Hendricks.

This could be a disaster but who knows?

Damn. Opening the night 1-1. Hopefully the MMA gods smile upon me more favorably for the rest of the night.

I like what I'm seeing so far defensively from Ferreira, anybody who like me, picked him to win has to be happy to see that. Protect that chin buddy, it could be your undoing!

Thinking I picked the wrong guy in Bruno. I figured maynards chin would give out on him again, but I didn't figure Bruno would be this sloppy. I can't help but feelaugh that if he was more technical and would throw straights instead of these dumb winging punches he would put him away.

Well fuck. Why can't we have nice things?! I hate to presume to know things, but I think it's safe to say he probably got popped for pot. He had been dodging that bullet some crazy magical how for years.

Huzzah! Needed that 22 points! Also needed for the ship to be righted for the night. Hopefully I end the night on top nailing these last few fights.

AAAHHHH!!! Doo Ho Choi!!
Is it just me, or did it look like they both knew it was over as soon as they separated? That right hand and stance also looked like the same way Conor throws his left.
Nailing the hot bout will help
