The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, The Ultimate Finale

You know what is really annoying? You spend three months watching and chronicling these fights, then, the night of the big finale, the main event goes over the DVR assigned time limit and you lose six and half minutes of the final fight. That's right, I didn't actually see the end of the second or … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, The Ultimate Finale

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 11

  For the life of me I can't figure out why this episode has to be two hours. I mean, combined, the fights are 30 minutes.  That's an hour and a half of filler.  Is there really that much left unresolved that we need to see the ousted fighters banter for that long? Nope. I'm … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 11

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 10

We already know Jonathan Brookins and Nam Phan will be in the semi-finals. Who will join them? That's what this week's show is all about. They've saved Bruce Leroy's fight for the very end, presumably to milk every last bit of his irritating personality before disposing of him (see also - Slice, Kimbo). Our first … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 10

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 9

This is where the rubber hits the road, so to speak. After eight weeks of fights, we are down to our quarter-finals. There is a lot at stake for these guys. I haven't been as diligent about writing up these recaps this season as I have in the past.  Things have been hectic.  I've also … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 9

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 8

Two guys. One fight. One slot. That's what this week is all about. Yes kids, its the return of the "wild card" fight. Marc Stevens comes into the fight as a controversial pick.  Aaron "English" Wilkinson not so much. Things get off to a rough start as Josh Koscheck once again gets into a verbal … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 8

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 7

We're down to our final first round fight.  Team GSP has won 5 of the first 6 fights and is firmly in control of the competition so far. Tonight's fight will feature Dane Sayers (TEAM SaGSP) taking on Sako Chivitchian (TEAM KOSCHECK). Sayers was the final fighter taken during the draft and he seems intent … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 7

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 6

Tonight's show will have two of our final three first round fights.  Can Koscheck retain control or will GSP get it back?  Lots of action to get to.  When last we checked in with our Ultimate Fighter cast, Team Koscheck had finally won a fight and taken control of the fight creation aspect of the competition. Now, … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 6

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 5

So we are into week five and our fourth fight and Team Koscheck is still on the outside looking in. Did GSP really draft that much better? Has Koscheck really been that snakebit? Hard to say.  All I know for sure is that the three losses are clearly taking a toll on Josh Koscheck. With … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 5

The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 4

For those of you just joining us, Team GSP is in firm control of this season.  They've won the first two fights and befuddled Team Koscheck. Before the fights, we get more footage of Bruce Leroy's in-house shenanigans.  He's full of shit and his housemates call him on it. He doesn't take kindly to it … Continue reading The Ultimate Fighter – Season 12, Episode 4
