    shogun's gas tank eh? i think i may have found our hybrid fighter's achilles heel.

    first fight... good back control by cameron and finishing the rnc.

    second fight... was kind of disappointed the american only got subbed and didn't get ktfo'ed.

    Once his teeth got knocked out, he'd lost his "warrior spirit" as Ken Shamrock would put it.

    I suck at striking, but if I am winning the standing exchange (like in both fights) why the hell would I try and take the person down?

    As an aside, why is it alot of these fighters seem to lack stamina? Do you think it is nerves, lack of training, etc?
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    I think it's nerves and "the house" being a bad place to try to prepare for a fight AND not knowing very far in advance when you have to make weight and fight. No one ever looks as bad in a real fight as they do on the show.

    I didn't think that Stapelton was doing that well on his feet (it looked like he totally froze), but Wilkes was owning Toothless when he kept his hands up. He also owned him on the ground, but he hardly missed on the feet.

    I'm guessing that this season isn't as popular as others, because the sort of ironic hubris displayed in this episode would have made for a ten pager in previous seasons. I'm not sure why; they're showing way more fights and way less drama than usual.

    I felt bad for the losers of both fights. Usually when I watch this show I'm thrilled that a jackass got beat up. There is no one to hate this season and it is hurting ratings I think.

    I'm thinking these guys have watched previous shows and thought: "Man we are not going to be those guys." -- so yes less drama and more fights; general audience will hate it, but those that actually train will get more out of it seeing training sessions and fights.

    I find it kinda ironic how the american team was joking around about knocking the british fighter's tooth and giving frank ( i think that was the american fighter's name) a $100 for each tooth and then the american dude gets 4 of his teeth knocked out by a brutal knee.

    The ratings aren't any worse than most of the seasons.

    Every season needs a Leben/Junie, or it's just not reality TV.
