    Yeah, but that pierce guy could have said the exact same thing, but with a smile and a shrug rather than in a pouting manner.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    I thought I caught a brief glimpse of relief on Pierce's face when he was told he wasn't fighting before he went into the somewhat forced "I am so pissed" routine. I could be wrong though and if I am Sirc will be here in a minute to tell me so.

    And Dent (sp?). Wow. Seriously? For the first time in my life I found myself agreeing with Dana. The dude won, but wow was that unimpressive.

    Before this season didn't Dana say that this was the best season ever in terms of fights? He must've been high
    I think I've felt this way with every single season during the first round of fights. Even season 5 which had the best mix of fighters seemed really lousy before the semis. I always have the memory of the more competitive fights with high level guys from the previous season in my head and then the new batch always seems to suck. I doubt that feeling will last.

    That said, anyone to goes by what Dana White says about a show he's trying to sell is dumb.

    I think Dana was weighing the injury. Just a gray zone where it was "technically" safe to let him fight, but Dana wanted to see how the injury was affecting him mentally.

    If he wanted to fight he should have kicked and screamed and threw a tantrum until Dana let him fight. Obviously he didnt want to fight, regardless of whether it was because of the injury or not.

    I think they'd have to edit that part out for sure.

    I think he didn't want to be known as someone who 'pussed out' (as Dana has said in past seasons) because of the injury so he created this lie that he wanted to fight then, like you said, acted disappointed when he wasn't allowed to fight.
