    Ha ha, yeah that was funny. It'll be interesting to see how they all struggle.

    One thing I don't like is the term 'English' that's been branded about all the time. Okay, all the fighters are English, but it's Team UK. It's a shame that a Welsh/Scottish or Irish guy wasn't good enough to make it through.

    Well it is team UK and they are flying the Union Jack but they are all English.

    I'm sure some Scots, some Welsh and even some Irish did try out, they just didn't make it.

    I'm not doubting that, the Welsh guy on there got his ass handed to him, but as long as they keep referring to themselves as Team UK and not England I'll be fine with it.

    When Team GB are at the Olympics you don't hear people referring to them as England.

    Should also mention that the Wed on Setanta will simply be a replay of the show that was shown on Virgin1 on the Sunday.

    Re: TUF Season 9 Discussion Thread

    I'm catching up on the first couple of episodes, as I was in Houston and missed em. I can honestly say that I have zero excitement for this season. I just don't care for the show much anymore. Not quite to the point where I won't watch, but its getting close.

    Well was it not you that I had to try to convince about the show not giving MMA a bad name?

    If so, I'm not surprised you're not excited... I AM surprised you're bothering to watch it.

    It was me. And its not that I think the show gives MMA a bad name, just that the reality show drama on it tends to reinforce the negative stereotypes that already exist about the sport.

    The show is watchable when the focus is the fighting, as it is for the first couple of episodes. A bit of drama, with the idiots who can't make weight. That's something I will never understand. Ever. I just get annoyed when the focus becomes the garbage going on in the house, especially when editing manipulates things heavily to emphasize the drama. I understand why they do it, but that doesn't make me like it at all.

    I couldn't believe they let that american use the turtle defense for the entire first round, that guy got beat down then landed a lucky armbar to get a win. I don't care if he was on season 2 and got sick, the fight should have ended in the first when he didn't fight back.

    He wasn't getting beaten enough, it's not his fault that his opponent didn't capitalize on it chops.

    After some encouragement he then took it himself.

    I remember when i was excited for TuF

    Watching the Episode from the prelims for america, ugh. Hopefully they do something a bit different when they get in the house.

    Then, now, forever.
