Join Bloody Elbow every Wednesday night to discuss the latest episode of the Ultimate Fighter 12, featuring UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Ultimate Fighter 1 alum Josh Koscheck.
I missed TUF last week. Heartbreaking, I know. I was "stuck" in Las Vegas for the week, helping my dad run brackets at a bowling tournament.
Let's stroll over to Wikipedia and find out what happened, shall we?
- Jon Fitch arrived at the training center to train with Team Koscheck. Jean-Charles Skarbowsky also arrived, intoxicated and following a 14-hour flight from Paris, to train Muay Thai with Team GSP. I'll just assume this was the best part of the show.
- Chuck Liddell also arrived and shared some words of wisdom with Team Koscheck. I never was a big Chuck Liddell fan. I rooted against him when he fought Quinton Jackson. I rooted against him when he fought Wanderlei Silva. I rooted for him when he fought Rashad Evans, which caused me to root even harder against him when he fought "Shogun" Rua. But as Chuck's career has stumbled, I've come to respect his passion for fighting. It's contagious. Unfortunately, it's that same passion that deludes him into believing he can still compete against the top of the division.
Alex Careres annoyed teammate Michael Johnson by putting bleach into Nam Phan's fabric conditioner - the very same used by Johnson. Next week on "Ultimate Roommates: Team GSP vs. Team Koshcheck," Kyle Watson farts on Jonathon Brookins' face. This is how MMA is marketed to America. Fantastic.
- St-Pierre announces the next fight: Spencer Paige vs. Nam Phan.
- Nam Phan defeated Spencer Paige via decision. Paige suffered a broken hand a foot in the fight.
Can someone explain the point of "the house" at this point? It's about time they air the week's fight and have John Danaher talk for the other 30 minutes.
