    I was hoping the nerdy chick would win last night.

    Here is a link to Sarah Moras' blog on last nights episode if anyone is interested.

    Who needs antics from the fighters in the house when their white trash coach is providing all the drama? Ronda Rousey is the least professional person on that whole show.

    As for the talent level of the women - I decided last night that the most athletic woman in the house will win since none of them are very skilled fighters.

    Funny how everyone is hating on Ronda still. It's very disheartening to see because I know the type of person she is and she is without a doubt a fine person.

    Jessica has some serious hands. I can't wait to see her at 100%. She also needs to listen to her corner.

    Roxy is a warrior. Very impressive fight for both ladies.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    Doesn't mean she isn't a twat on camera.

    We judge everyone on TV. Nobody whines when people call Frank Mir an asshole because nobody feels the need to protect him since he doesn't have tits. If Ronda doesn't want to come off as a thundercunt she shouldn't act like one when cameras are rolling. What I see when she talks is a drama whore with air between her ears.

    It's funny too. TUF has a reputation for building fighters' fan bases through exposure. I'd bet a year's salary Ronda has fewer fans when the show is over than she started with.

    Am I the only one still wondering what the hell was going on in that refs head? Unless the editing of the show has mislead me, in the first round Jessica grabs the fence several times and he says nothing, then come second round when she grabs the fence again the dude goes berserk and gives her a warning by stopping the clock and splinting up the fight. Do I just have an unrealistic expectation of how judges are supposed to handle this stuff?

    Frank Mir is a really good guy as well. Just goes to show you what you see on TV isn't always true.

    Really? I'm pretty sure everything on TV is true.

    Seriously, there are limits to what can be misconstrued via selective editing. Ronda has been captured on film behaving like a stupid, classless bitch. There's really no way around it.

    Jessamyn Duke's take on the ref:
    Quote Originally Posted by Jessamyn
    The refereeing in that fight was some of the strangest I had ever seen. The way he stopped Jessica in the middle of striking Roxanne and screamed in her face was weird. We thought she was hitting Roxanne in the back of the head. He pulled her off to the side and talked to her, but didnít take a point.

    She did grab the fence unintentionally several times but just because it wasn't on purpose, doesnít excuse it, so she probably should have gotten a point taken.

    You canít give that many warnings. If you are going to give that many warnings, you have to take a point or stop giving warnings. I donít think taking the point would have done anything to change the fight outcome, but she probably should have been penalized.

    The finish of the fight was crazy. Roxanne was lifted up by Jessica and slammed to the mat. Her head bounced off really hard and you could tell from her eyes that she didnít know where she was. She got hit again, and it looked like it brought her back to consciousness, which happens. One more punch and she was out again, and thatís when the stoppage came. Sometimes you get knocked out and another strike wakes you back up, and thatís what I think was the case there.

    The stoppage may have seemed late because Roxanne looked loopy while on the ground, but she was still throwing her legs up for attacks, and we were yelling for her to back off. Roxanneís dangerous even when sheís hurt badly and thatís why I think the ref let it go as long as he did. That final punch that earned the stoppage may have been overkill, but the ref was giving her a chance to work.
    From her blog entry.
