Hey guys, I'm back. I forgot about this whole TUF thing this season because, frankly, it offers nothing of value. Because of a conflict with my jiu jitsu class, I won't be able to watch this live for y'all, either. I'll try to make it up with the weekly posts.
So, I caught up with the season last night. Looks like standard TUF fare so far. The coaches are already talking smack. Some dude "quit on his dreams." Pranks. Someone dogging it in training. Etc. etc.
Oh, but what's this about Rich Franklin stepping in for Tito Ortiz at UFC 115. This is
very moderately barely interesting news! The MMA blogosphere seems confused why Zuffa leaked this information on Monday. Are we that dense? The UFC put this out there to try and wash the Dancing Silva and Crosby'd Penn out of our mouths. I think I'd rather watch Silva dance around for five rounds than Franklin fight Liddell. Meh.
I'm gonna guess "When Does Tito Leave?" becomes "Does Kimbo Fight Again?" for the season. Oh joy.
