Human Weapon - MMA in LA & Las Vegas episode
As expected, this episode kept the BS to a minimum. They spent time with qualified instructors, like Couture and Bravo. And, of course, they included the gratuitous "Bravo made a Gracie tap" reference, complete with vid. In fact, they used a lot of submission wrestling vids without pointing out that those people were not in fact doing MMA. Strange.
They capped off the show with both hosts fighting 3 3-min. rounds under MMA rules. Chambers subed his guy with a Twister (don't see that every day). Duff fought Ricco Rodriguez (!) to a 3-round decision.
Maybe I'm just not up on the lingo, but I think "Duff fought Ricco Rodriguez (!) to a draw" would be more accurate.

FUCKING HISTORY REVISIONISM WITH THE FUCKING BJJ HISTORY!!!!!
Now that I got that out of my system, it wasn't a bad episode (they didn't go to practice some unrelated bullshit in order to understand it better and have some deadly tricks under their sleeves).

Can some one tell me if I missed the "this technique can kill" satatement that always gets made ;)
Never thought I would see a twister done in an MMA fight, so that was pretty crazy.
Duff's fight was ok, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if they would of left off his commentery and just shown us the fight, but I guess that is what the mute button is for ;)
Over all a nice episode and I really enjoyed the trainers they were able to land for this go around.
I kind of liked seeing the old black and white catch wrestling and bareknuckle boxing clips.
Guess I blocked that out of my memory, because I sure forgot to complain about it.

Duff has a up hill climb all that muscle mass and weight slows the big fellow up.
The episode was ****, but at least the "first heavyweight back kicker" quote was funny.
They said it in reference to a triangle choke, but that can actually kill if you hold it long enough.
