    Century products are crap. Damned near all of them. The day a UFC fighter has the stitching come undone while trying to finish his opponent, I will laugh. What an insult to Ouano....

    My Century Judo gi came apart while grappling in a Judo class. The sleeve ripped from shoulder to wrist. The rip wasn't even near the seem. The gi only cost around $55 and was two years old. Not a great loss but still a loss. I would rather pay more for something that will last.

    because century has deeper pockets than combat sports. they used to have a deal with combat sports to use all their gear on TUF. then last season we started to see century gear being used on the show.

    i would assume this is because century made an offer that combat sports couldn't match. let's hope that they make special higher quality stuff for the UFC though.

    and this sucks for john ouano, he is a great guy and has made quality stuff for years. i hate to see him lose out due to big business outbidding him.

    Please, all of you are mistaken. The free market would never let that happen. If someone gets outbid, it is purely because of the merits or lack thereof of a specific product, and in no way, shape, or form can an inferior product be put on the market and win just through virtue of money or purchasing power. Absolutely impossible.

    I've had these debates on Sociocide and some people seem to think that's true.

    On another note, that sucks for the dude whose knee blew out. As someone recovering from an injury, he has my sympathy. It's good he's so light-hearted about it, the first guy finding out about his broken arm didn't take it so well.

    Well you know Dana has to try to save money wherever he can. Do you know the cut off for the richest 400 people in the US is 1.3 billion dolllars? How can Dana get on that list if he is paying top dollar for Combat Sports gear?

    i thought Dorian was pulling some stupid stunt to get kicked off the show on purpose. Man he's got issues.

    Serra calls it right every time when he talks about Hughes reactions, and its damn funny too.
    Good strategy by Serra for the picks, definitely put some thought into it, rather than alwayys pairing the strongest against the weakest like in the past seasons
    (tho, this will no doubt pit at least 2 of the better fighters together early on instead of having the best guys make it to the quarter finals or finals)

    As much as I want Serra's guys to win, I always have this sinking feeling that Matt Hughes will do the Miletich thing and sit quietly through defeats only to come out the overall champ.

    Bullshit. I sympathized with him. Being injured when your sole attribute is working hard is frustrating as all hell. I've snapped and got in peoples faces when I couldn't practice (long ago in HS sports). His reaction isn't at all that ridiculous except that he agreed to let cameras in his face.

    When you're trying, but unable, to train hard the last thing you want is someone in your face.

    According to Billy, camera guy was 50 feet away from him when he came unglued...just saying. Props to him for getting his stuff togather, and I hope he stays.
