Neither guy deserved to win but I'm fine with the decision. Hill might be the biggest tool on the show so I wanted him out but Secor had his back for over 4 minutes and did absolutely nothing with it. He was okay with just laying there and winning a boring decision.

Speaking of tools, the preview for next week shows Julian once again acting like a moron in the house. Do people actually want to see this crap? Just get rid of him already.

I don't even know why I still watch this show. None of these guys deserve to fight in the UFC.

Boring fight. I had Secor winning, but giving the win to Hill didn't bother me at all, I don't think it was nearly as big a deal as it was made to be on the show.

Judging by how fast the "TUF" card is filling up with UFC regulars...Dana and Joe don't think so either.

Yeah so far we've had what, around 10 or so fighters? Not a single one looked good.

I'm looking forward to seeing Ricci and Waters, but with the way the season has gone, my expectations are low.

This season really sucks.

Ricci is the one guy I've liked since the beginning. I'm hoping he wins it all but like you said, the expectations are still low right now.

Waters is the black guy right? He picked up a quick win to get into the house but they barely show him. I guess you have to be either doing something stupid or fighting to get some camera time.

Have Carwin and Nelson previously had any "beef" or anything? Certainly wouldn't be able to tell from watching the show.

It's like the producers and editors have absolutely nothing to work with whatsoever.

None that I'm aware of. That's why they're showing guys cupping farts in the house.

They've had a long standing "twitter war" from what I understand, but that's about it.

It's so strange that there are so many stars involved in the coaching, some of which have fights booked and coming up, but the UFC doesn't spend any time in the show promoting them. Who have we seen so far? Forrest Griffin, Pat Barry, Jake Shields, Nick Diaz... maybe others?

Throw in some quick highlight reels of these guys and who they are, and promote other upcoming events a little!

I also think it would be cool if each show taught viewers one simple thing related to the sport. Whether it's related to nutrition, fitness, or martial arts. Remember when shows did things like that? Joe Ferraro even does it a little on UFC Connected. I think it would be a nice touch.

There is a show on FUEL I saw once with Kenny Florian and Rashad Evans going over grappling/wrestling techniques. It was cool and Florian would be an awesome coach.

They need to get back to a show about fighters & quit looking for "characters" & drama.

The luster has worn off the show in Joe public's eyes & the majority of the audience is probably the long time fans who want to see more substance.

Hopefully they get back on track soon, afterall, it was an actual all out war of a TUF fight that put the sport where it is today.

Switch back to the survivor reality tv model as opposed to the current honey Booboo model.

Well, Lane and Hill looked like the two biggest tools in the season preview and they're living up to it. I like how every challenge they made so far tonight was to someone who would beat the **** out of them.

They are the type of guys who only took up MMA..not for the love of martial arts/competition but to try and validate themselves as "badasses".

Not a huge fan of the Ricci/Waters matchup. Could be the two top dogs.

Ya it was a good fight tonight. I wish they wouldnt even air the drunken rantings of dbags like mohawk dude and Michael Hill or whoever. To me that would be embarrassing for the UFC and professional fighters, but apparently not.

Its quite sad actually.

Also props to the guy for admitting to biting on purpose. Even though it was a dbag thing to do in the cage, at least he was man enough to admit to it.

Jon Manley has some skill and definitely has heart. Will be interesting to see how far he goes.

Agreed, best episode of the season thus far.

A little disappointed that one of Waters/Ricci won't be able to advance.

Finally, those two put it all in the line. Great fight that made up for the first 15 mins of stupidity.

Next weeks fight should be really good also.

Good fight last week and easily the best fight thus far.

But my favourite part of the episode was watching Roy do all the track and field events. Seeing a big grin on Dana's face as Roy ran around the track made it that much more enjoyable.

Also, they should have just let Julian bash his head against the wall. I don't know why they stopped him.

Great fight.

These two have shown more in that fight than the others have shown in my opinion. Great fight and sucks that one of these guys had to lose.

Looking forward to next week though.

Good god Julian is such a clown.
