Well, life caught up with me and I’ve gotten a bit behind on these reviews. That doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten them.
I spent a good portion of my weekend catching up on Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter. I’m glad I did.
When last we checked in on our Vegas house full of MMA wannabes, Roy “Big Country” Nelson had just laid a beating on Kimbo Slice.
Rashad Evans, still in control of picking the fights, pairs Brendan Schaub with Demico Rogers and our matchup is set.
Marcus Jones is shown training and then sweating profusely back at the house. You know something isn’t right when Kimbo Slice comes to your rescue. Big Baby doesn’t get the fight and doesn’t like it.
The fight was set after Justin Wren balks at fighting Scott Junk because they’re buddies outside of the show. Way to man up Justin!
Rampage Jackson continues to be edited like an idiot. He doesn’t give his fighters much good advice and spends most of his camera time making silly cracks about the other fighters. I’m not sure if this is part of Rampage’s punishment for shooting the A-Team movie, but he isn’t being portrayed in a good light at all.
And then, its fight time.
In the first round, Shaub takes the victory with an anaconda choke. Rogers was outclassed.
Jackson was not happy with the submission and left Rogers alone in the ring. It was a childish display. The only person giving Rogers and positive reinforcement was Rashad Evans.
Team Rashad is is now up 4-0.
