    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone watch Nerd MMA on G4 last night?

    Combat is the last, greatest and truest measure of manhood. It is the ultimate form of competition and in the midst of it, one either embraces wit and strength or, in failing to do so, makes defeat their bedfellow. Today, spirits will be tested and intellects tried in the showdown to end all showdowns, the only competition where brain matters every bit as much as brawn, where skilled pugilism weighs equally with an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture, the Nerd MMA!
    Witness men, who represent the pinnacle of human development both physically and intellectually, outfox, then outbox each other and look on in awe as one rises above his foes to become the King of the Nerd Fighters!

    Was pretty hilarious actually!

    Poor Andy Wang... instead of fighting in the UFC, he's reffing for a one-off segment on an extended cable channel program.

    See, these are the long-term ramifications for not listening to your corner.

    I think the "Nerd MMA" title was a bit overblown. While not elite fighters, these guys obviously had a decent amount of training. From the show title, I was expecting guys a la "Beauty and the Geek" with minimal training to be fighting, not half decent amateur fighters who happen to play video games.

    Yeah, that sucks for Wang. Damn.

    I've come to the conclusion that G4tv is mostly a piece of crap. I think Attack of the Show is mostly rubbish. Olivia Munn is hot, but she comes off as an idiot. And Kevin Perreira is a clow.

    But yeah, Nerd MMA sucked.

    Did anyone see the Attack of the Show MMA special with Bas Rutten? That one was much better.

    I thought that was Best Damn Sports Show. They got Bas, Yoshida, and Nakamura for that special which made it about a thousand times better than something with Wang.

    The thing that gets me, is MMA has a fair share of "nerds" in it already.

    I mean, J-lau could have been on that show before the Pulver fight.

    It would have been destructive and inappropriate sandbagging, but he could have gotten on.
