Amir showed alot of heart in his fight last night. The guy got visciously slammed quite a few times. Some of the fighters probably would have given up. But man did that kid keep figthing. He's really impressing me for not having a single professional MMA bout before the show. Whew, and tempers a flairing between Forrest and Rampage now. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I think this should be considered a spoiler and I'm not happy that it was on the front page in bold letters a matter of hours after the episode aired.

There should be at least a 24 hour period before stuff like this is put up on the front page.

As far as I understand it, it says nothing about whether he won or lost. Just his comments on this episode. I believe even if he had lost he would still have posted his thoughts on what happened. In other words, not a spoiler.

no but the very fact that his blog is posted the day after his fight indicates very strongly that he won. The only blogs I ever see of TUF fighters are the blogs of winning fighters. Mac danzig's blog was popular last season, it's just obvious. I saw that headline and I knew immediately that he won his fight.

It's not really that big of a deal, but it kind of sucks to have the outcome ruined. It would be nice to wait just one day.

My pick at the start of this TUF was Dolloway over Harris in the finals...

The episode aired last night on cable tv. Come on man, if you haven't seen it yet, don't visit MMA websites with news postings all over the main page. Use your head.

Acutally, im pretty sure amir posts a blog after every episode, ive seen alot of them posted on this site. I saw it earlier and it didnt make me think he won. I actually just got through watching it, and the only way is can be considered a spoiler is if you opened it and read other peoples comments.

Actually, just looked in the related topics thing under the comments, and amirs blog for 4 and 5 are both there. Im pretty sure his blog gets posted in the new section every week though.

True, Luke Zachrich's blog about his fight was up within minutes after his loss and he continues to write about each episode. This guy is over-reacting...guess he had a bad day or something.

Gerald Harris was a bad pick to fight Amir. Stylistically it may have made sense at the time, but I knew eventually those knees would connect on one of those patented double legs. I mean, seriously... did he have any takedowns (besides the slams) that weren't double legs?

This is my homepage, I did not intend to come to this site, I can't avoid it if I go to check my email though. Secondly this is a site that doesn't allow spoilers so I shouldn't have to try to avoid it. I know that it aired last night, I made the post early this morning, as I was about to watch the episode which had been tivo'd.

The sites rules state that spoilers are not allowed, and this is my homepage, drop the "use your head" nonsense. Like I said it wasn't a big deal I just would prefer not to see it so soon after the episode airs.

It was a great fight pick, Harris has everything on Amir on paper, including a ton more experience. Amir hung in there, showed some heart, and landed the knee.

Power double is his style, of course he's got more takedowns than that. He took him down quite a few times, why change something that works? He also got slams off a couple of high crotches too.

if he does a blog every week that's my mistake then. I took it to mean he won because I have only ever seen blogs posted of winning fighters. (even if they didn't win on the day of, this is all taped far in advance and then the blogs are released afterwards.)

i love these blogs the guys are doin and really think rampage needs to relax and realize he's not a judge or a twelve year old and cant just call a round (which was clearly in cale's favour, see takedowns) and then throw a temper tantrum after some petty threats haha. if anyone knows anything about losing a round from a takedown, its forrest, so get over yourself, furthermore, i was glad to see patrick get his ass kicked, never liked the guy, he threw the same boring punches all fight and then after he lost, again, had the nerve to say somethin like that to forrest. im definetly buying the dvd of this season as well, good job cale and amir, cheers.

Well, no offense.. but OBVIOUSLY it wasn't a great pick, haha.

I'm still sticking with my original belief on this issue- He should have picked CB to take on Amir since Amir was the toughest fighter left on Forrest's team. I look at it like this-

CB can beat any of the three guys Forrest had left easily. Amir being the biggest threat, I put my best guy against their best and knock him out of the tournament.

Harris could definitely beat Cale, but it was questionable (IMO) whether or not he could beat Amir or Klein.

Schultz obviously couldn't beat any of the guys Forrest had.

So I take CB, put him against their best, take Harris against Klein and hope Harris' strength and wrestling gets him the UD nod (I believe it could), then I take Schultz and give the fans what they want to see. A stand up war between two cans.

I mean, really... on paper a lot of things make sense, but if there's one thing we should all know by now it's that paper doesn't mean jack half of the time in MMA. I put styles against styles, and Harris' standup didn't match up with Amir's.
