So far, so good

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

I have been a little down on The Ultimate Fighter since, say, the fifth season. The show has simply felt like one long rerun: same house, same personalities, same format, same jerseys, etc. Well, now here comes a sneak peak at the upcoming ninth season, and I must say, this feels ...

MMARated Radio: Patrick Schultz Reflects On His TUF Chances

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Every season of the "The Ultimate Fighter" always seems to have a happy-go-lucky guy who comes off as just feeling blessed to be on the show. There's also usually a guy who gets a second chance to chase his dream due to an injury or some kind of controversy. Just so ...

MMARated Radio: Gerald Harris Wishes He Could Go Back

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

It’s been a fairly unpredictable season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” thus far, but no result was more unexpected (in my mind at least) than Amir Sadollah’s victory over Gerald Harris on last night’s episode of the show. Sadollah seemed to be lacking confidence going into the bout while Harris, well, he ...

MMARated Radio: The Misrepresentation of Jeremy May?

Monday, May 12th, 2008

It wasn't quite Gabe Ruedieger-esque but Jeremy May's behavior on last week's episode TUF 7 was quite the controversial one. Actually, maybe controversial isn't the right word...annoying might be more accurate.So, why did he pour lime juice in Matt Brown's dip anyways? And why did the rest of the cast ... A Tough Pill To Swallow For Luke Zachrich

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

Luke Zachrich is coming off a disappointing, yet spirited, loss to Dan Cramer on last night's edition of "The Ultimate Fighter" and I can't help but feel a little bad for him a day later. You see, Zachrich's fight was nudged right after the whole Matt Brown-Jeremy May battle with little ... TUF’s Matthew Riddle Interview

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

When I first saw Matthew "Chipper" Riddle crush Dan Simmler's jaw on in the second episode of TUF 7, I quickly thought to myself: "That kid's going far in this tournament." I think it was a mix between the smug smile on his face and the excessive TV time he ...

Hightower Hopes For A Home In The UFC

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Coming into the The Ultimate Fighter 6 it was crystal clear as to who the favorites and underdogs were. Phoenix, Arizona's Richie Hightower was no doubt viewed as a long shot to win the reality show. So, it was kind of surprising to see Hightower make it to the quarterfinals ...

A TUF Review & A WEC Preview

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Another busy week for the Zuffa family as Saturday night they held the The Ultimate Fighter Finale on Spike TV and this Wednesday on Versus is another blockbuster World Extreme Cagefighting offering. Guida vs. Huerta certainly lived up to the hype and while I presume a ton of MMA fans lost ...

Park Prognostication: The Ultimate Fighter Finale

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

After interviewing Andrei Arlovski's better half, Patrycja Mikula, last week I realized that this girl really knows her UFC. So, I offered her a lucrative long-term deal to become The Park's official Swami. I think this was a great move on my part. Before every UFC show, Patrycja will make her ...

A TUF Night To Predict

Friday, December 7th, 2007

Sure, it's no Hatton-Mayweather but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to fill your appetite of combat sports tomorrow night you must check out the The Ultimate Fighter Finale on Spike TV (9 PM ET/PT). Guida vs. Huerta. Danzig vs. Speer. Some other filler matches include the return of ...
