    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.

    I enjoyed this episode more than the others, but I was bothered by their saying "guard" when they meant rubber guard.

    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).

    But still, something about having a black guy or a lesbian jump out from behind a garbage can yelling "SURPRISE GONG SAU" at any of your big-named RBSD kooks makes me giggle like a little girl.

    I must say that this is the best episode I have seen of this show.

    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.

    I liked this one you have to understand duff is a large animal. Unlike chamber's he's learning as he goes. Chamber's had training before .
    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.

    Could Rodrigues (?) be more out of shape. He also went easy on Duff. How big was Rich Franklin? I did not quite get the back kick excitement, hardly ever see it in MMA..
