I just watched it last night, it was really good. A lot of finishes which is what I like.
Same here, I downloaded it from iTunes once it was available. Good opener, some of the outcomes surprised me, and a nice tribute screen for "Mask" at the end before the credits.
Just read that the actual rating for the show (not total viewers) was 1.34. UFN 18 did a 1.36, so TUF held on to about 83% of it's lead-in.
Glad to see it got so many people, it's starting off pretty well, hopefully the whole season is as good as episode one.
Loved how the Brits utilized leglocks.
The UK didnt look to bad. Hope the US comes ready to rumble.
the US is going to have their hands full with that UK team, those guys fought like they were hungry, and in the promo the US team was having trouble even making weight.
Pretty solid bunch of fights to start the season. We'll see if they can carry it through out the season.
