    Glad Roy won after all the **** he got for not baby sitting his TUF fighters. So glad for Pat Barry he really needed this one. Mike Pyle was fun apparently mullet power is real based on this card. It was good from Facebook to Fx.

    Roy came across as a retard on that show. Still a good win.

    Shame Ricci did'nt get a win but I half expected Colton Smith to get another victory via the standard play it safe wrestle routine.

    Yes, Nelson did it to Mittrone. Figured that was going to happen. Smith did a lot better than I thought he would.

    Smith is the most boring fighter man.

    also, if i lost to someone and they stood in the middle of the ring yelling "THIS IS EASY! THIS EASY! PRAISE THE LORD" id want to go hang myself.

    Was that most suplexes in one match surpassing Dan Severn vs Anthony Machias (there were two in that match afaik)?
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    Soldier wins reality show, earns UFC contract

    By Jon R. Anderson - Staff writer

    When Army Staff Sgt. Colton Smith got the nod to represent the Army on Spike TV’s reality mixed martial arts competition “The Ultimate Fighter,” he had to burn through two years’ worth of personal vacation to be on the show. “Sixty days of leave in order to go get punched in the face,” he says with a laugh.

    Of course, he’s laughing all the way to the bank.

    The two-tour Iraq veteran and Ranger-tabbed infantryman is the first active-duty fighter to win “TUF,” beating Canada native Mike Ricci in the show’s title fight Dec. 16 in Las Vegas with a unanimous-decision win.

    Three days later, Smith was back to work at Fort Hood, Texas, where he serves — appropriately — as a hand-to-hand combatives instructor. That’s where OFFduty caught up with Smith during a break in training.

    Q. First off, congratulations. Going into the fight, you were seen as the underdog. Did you have any doubts you could pull off the win?

    A. I relished being called the underdog. Honestly, it kind of takes the pressure off your shoulders when people think you’re going to lose and you know in your heart you’re not going to lose. Win, lose or draw, I knew it would either be a fight that I won or an exciting time trying to win.

    Q. Going to live and work with a bunch of people you don’t know is nothing new for anyone who’s been in the military. What was the biggest surprise for you living in the “TUF” house?

    A. What surprised me most were these tough fighters who were breaking mentally in the house. We were all tough athletes, but there was a lack of mental toughness. Some broke under pressure. Some had never been away from their families. They just broke mentally.

    Q. You had about two months to prepare for your final bout. What did you do to get ready?

    A. Tim Kennedy [an Austin, Texas-based Army National Guard soldier and pro MMA fighter] played a huge role in my training camp. The second I came out of the [“TUF”] house, he took me under his wing and started showing me the way a real pro fighter trains. I had never really trained full time for a fight. … I was in Austin three or four days a week, where Tim is co-owner of Austin Muay Thai. The rest of the time, I was training with my jujitsu coach and my striking coach, as well as Chris Perkins, my boss here at the combatives facility.

    Being hit by Tim and training with Tim constantly is definitely trying. A lot of guys quit when they start training with him. You can’t always be the hammer — you have to be the nail sometimes. When I’m training with Tim, I’m usually the nail.
