Wang is an idiot. He stood there and played that other guy's game. I still can't believe a BJJ 6'3 reach guy decided to stand with a lankey guy with a 7'2 reach. He should have listened to BJ. He was right, it did look like a bully taking his lunch money... I was waiting for Brandon too put one hand on his head and hold him back while he hits the air with an frenzy.

They gave away that it's Gabe vs. Corey, which makes me think he doesn't make weight since they spoiled him picking it. Gabe has had 4 fights (every 3 days) ahead of him, he should have made a dent in that weight by now. I'm not too worried about BJ's team, so far Pulver has put his best against his worst... the tides will change with Wiman, Gray, Joe.

Man, I hope Gabe makes it... I hate to go a week without a fight.

Yeah, Andy was down right stupid. He definitely played into the other guy's game. He is a BJJ black belt yet he never got the fight to the ground to show off his skills. He is wrong when he said that people will call him a warrior - they will call him an idiot for wanting to brawl with a striker.

Oh, and I think Gabe will make weight ... but he will be so tired and crappy that Corey makes quick work out of him. Round 1 KO, you heard it from me.

Can't wait to see whiny Gabe get destroyed by Corey "DMX" Hill. This doesn't even seem like TUF anymore, it seems like the Gabe Ruediger Show. Even when he loses he'll still be in the house stirring shit up.

After interrupting my movie to see that BS fight last night, I have to say that I don't think I'm going to watch the rest of the season.

The first 45min is always just a bunch of drama and little/no focus on training.

The fights, except for Manny's have been either lack lustre or crappy. Last night the two fighters looked like a couple of beginners in the ring. There were hardly any combos being thrown and no take downs at all. I have seen BJJ/MMA white belts fight at the same calibre as those two.

Andy, for a BJJ black belt you should be ashamed of yourself for standing the whole fight. Your crying did not garner any sympathy from me.

Ha...i knew Diaz wasn't gonna wear that crappy belt Team Pulver made..lol

that Andy Wang is an idiot....f*ckin lied to BJ and promised him he would go for a takedown....and what does he do? tries to striker with a striker,and tries to land a RHK that didnt even reach Brandon's chest!lol

I dont care how good Brandon Melendez is....i dont respect anyone who steps on the scale with a thong on......hope he gets KTFO the next fight...things like that disgust me...im kinda like Diaz.....and how Kendall was on season 3...just layed back and chilled.....i am from South Texas after all... Stoner Style!..im pretty sure Diaz,and Kendall toke out..

Nate Diaz is a great fighter, no question about that. A class act fighter of equal calibre is always going to have more fans though. Acting like a tough guy in a house full of fighters makes no sense to me.

Andy Wang fought without thinking. You are a BJJ black belt and you won't even try to take the fight down? Dana did not look pleased. It was like watching a gunfighter pulling his knife at high noon. I know Dana didn't put him on the show because of that overhand right. Damn that was frustrating to watch.

I was yelling at my TV out of frustration. BJ is flipping out yelling at Wang to take him down and he refuses. If Wang thinks people will see him as a warrior, he's delusional. They'll see him as a moron who didn't take advantage of his biggest strength.

first andy refuses to take it to the ground where hes an expert then he cries like a baby in the ring after the fight

i highly doubt anyone will remember him as a warrior

i thought it was funny as hell when bj said he was trying to have his bruce lee moment

That and the worst crybaby in TUF history.

Loved how BJ walked behind him giggling.

its much funnier when you rewatch it,and see how they edited the show and make Andy look more like an idiot...

its funny how even Gabe called it before they fought...BJ told gabe..."You've cornered Andy before right?"...and Gabe was like "Yea...he wont listen to a word you will say".....and BJ laughes

even if Andy ties taking him down,i dont see it happening.......what good is BJJ if you dont know how to wrestle...you could tell Melendez was way too strong for him...but he still should of tried and put him on his ass
Andy said before the fight to Melendez..."dont hold back man,cuz when this is all set and done and all the dust clears,theres gonna be some blood,TEARS, everything!"...he didnt lie about that

funny how BJ was mocking the way Andy was crying...

theres always one idiot each season. 1 dude quits cause of a girfriend, 1 dude quits cause he cant lose 5 more # to make weight, 1 dude quits cause he cant handle the cameras & the attention, 1 dude gets kicked out for sneakin out of the house, etc. the only problem is that the idiots havent usually made it to a fight. wang will be the 1st tuf to never fight in the ufc.

I just hope that Gabe gets dropped by a body shot again like he did against Melvin guillard at ufc 63. That stuff was too funny melvin told Joe rogan that gabe must have a soft a$$ stomack to get dropped by a body punch

understanding this is 'tv land' and they edit and show what they wish...but I just don't see Gabe working out like Corey....

now i'm not a fan of Corey, ( and i like DMX) but man i gotta say he sure is sweating his @$$ off and all i see Gabe doing is sitting by BJ and sipping water..i can't WAIT for this next episode....

So Gabe has fought professionally before? Corey never had a gym?

i'm still new to this and the show itself so excuse the noobness...

I just watched TiVo for the second time..what's with the Chuck Norris/Steven Segal guy the first part (missed the name) about whupping 9 or 24 guys or something one after another?

oh and a hint:

if you use TiVo, NEVER teach your 5 yr old how to work the TiVo remote

"you can watch cartoons after Daddy's show is over"

"Ok, daddy, thank you"

THEN everything is being fastforwarded by the munchkin behind the couch

"See daddy? Almost over and my turn!"

I can't decide yet if this is my favorite season. I love the fights so far. On the other hand, all these guys have the maturity of high schooler about to get laid for the first time. I don't say this to take away their talent, but they're playing WAY too much to the camera. Some of it is just rediculous.

I can't decide yet who is going to win the show. Just have to wait and see everyone fight. The only finalist I feel safe to call is Corey. I'd like to see Joe Lauzon in the final, but just don't know yet.

Only fighter I'd like to see eliminated as soon as possible is Nate Diaz. I just can't stand his attitude.

Yeah... Gabe is 10-3. He got body punch KO'd by Melvin. Before that though it was pretty even. Corey hasn't ever fought, so a lot of people are banking on hid potential right now. I think Gabe may have this one, even though I'm slightly pulling more for the people's choice in Corey. And yeah, Marlon is a moron... no way that guy or weems win their fights.

I wanted to comment on something earlier, even though Pulver's fight picking style right now is working and he's doing a good job, it isn't anything new to take your top 4 and make them fight the other team's bottom 4. Sure by doing this he has momentum and a good chance at maybe some upsets out of his bottom fighters later on, but I still have hope that one day we'll see a TUF coach select fights that are so well picked that he sweeps the season with a perfect record because he knew one of his guys had a slight edge in the fight. That would be so awesome.

Good season so far.

i think corey has had some fights, but only 4 and they were probably at local events, but i see him having great potential and also i see it will be take a lot of energy out of gabe to cut weight, if it goes past the 2nd i'd take corey on that alone.

but i guess we will see i cant wait!

I just hope for a great fight, hopefully ending in a brutal KO or a slick sub.

Cory got on the show because of his aggressive personality and his height, period. He gives the fans something to talk about and tune into see. Could he be a force someday, maybe. Right now I think Gabe has too much experience
cowcatcher
5/2/07 1:25:52PM
gabe does have an obvious edge in experience, but between the weight cut, his soft midsection, and cory's size i dont see gabe winning this one. not to mention he is my least favorite guy on TUF since sam "sausage tits" hoger so i have to root for cory. cory has started to grow on me too, hes a lot of hype, but everything the coaches have said about him is extremely positive.

5/2/07 2:58:36PM
Gabe looked like he was totally exhausted after cutting that much weight that quickly. I will be surprised if he wins this fight. Corey just needs to stuff his TDs and push the pressure and he will tire Gabe out, leading to the (T)KO.

The next few fights should probably go to Penn's team, Pulver's top guys have been picking Penn's weakest. Although I won't be surprised to see some of the underdogs win after the low morale on Penn's team.

Corey is also an all american wrestler and a decent striker but Gabe has experience and trains with a really good camp so idk tough on to call. im rooting fro corey hes a beast

I'm watching this and I want to PUKE....

Gabe doing all the drama..trying to get out of the sauna, then whining for someone to put him back in LOL....

hope that didn't spoil nothing..i'm shutting up now...woose

how many people get a chance to get on tv and get a contract, jeez!!
Ydoc
5/3/07 11:06:50PM
Yeah... that was awful. Don't want to see him in the UFC again and looks like I won't. If he did all this for heat as a reality star villian he's got it, but that doesn't really matter when you won't be allowed to fight in the UFC.
