1st round:
Johnson slams Alex.
Johnson knocks Alex's mouthpiece out with a hook.
Alex lands a few flurries.
Alex really does smile through the whole round.

I score it 10-9 for Johnson despite hardly controlling Alex on the ground for more than 5 seconds both times he had him down.

2nd round:
Johnson slams Alex again right into side control and wisely keeps him down.
Good GnP against the fence for Johnson.
Alex drops a few elbows.
Johnson gets a double-leg and remains on top for a full minute.
Johnson gets another double with 15 seconds left.
I score it 10-9 for Johnson again.

Nothing but negativity and lameness from Koscheck after the fight.

Brookins vs Johnson finale, I think thats the match up they want for the finale.

Brookins sounds like nate diaz the way he talks.

Certainly looks like that'll be the fight.

Watson wont be able to school Brookins on the ground like his last two fights, so I see him struggling. Johnson should be able to take Nam down and dominate like he did to Alex, but then again Nam hits alot harder so that fight seems a bit more interesting.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that Kos just comes off as an idiot when he tries to chirp GSP.

Yeah, it seems like Kos is trying to play the role of instigator/idiot on the show. I think he's trying to hype up the show and fight between him and GSP.

I picked Brookins when the cast was announced, and over the course of the show I think he has shown that he is the most likely to be able to have success in the UFC.
He has real ground skills, and we know he can take punishment based on his fight with Aldo a couple years ago.

Something I have been thinking about is what happens with guys like Nam and Brookins after the show. Both seem like they have made the cut to at least get a contract, but both (and especially Nam) belong at FW. It makes me wonder if the finals are Brookins and Nam, and that had a part to play in bringing in the lower divisions from WEC.

Oh man, i fell in love with koschecks fraggle-ness during that episode.

"You know he matched up you 2 because he thinks one of you is the weakest"
"You're on your own now"

He's totally doing it purposefully, but man is it hilarious.

I'm shocked by all the longtimers in this thread (pleasantly shocked). I thought those of us that have been around a while were definitely loosing, or had already lost interest in TUF. I know I certainly don't watch it as religiously as I used to.

But I guess it goes to show that we're still starving for MMA, even if it means putting up with some of the silliness that is TUF.

Ya, even though im not as into it as I once was I still try to take a general interest. I guess I like the idea of getting to know a fighter before they become an industry "star". Granted, most TUFers dont amount to much, but guys like Bader and Roy Nelson now grace top ten lists and they were on the show just 1 or 2 seasons ago. Ya never know!

I still haven't missed an episode.....sometimes it's after the fact but I never miss an episode. I thoroughly enjoy it.
