Holy cow it’s mid January and I’m finally starting to get back into my every day rhythm. Ok, I’m lying; I still haven’t found it yet. It’s been a life changing few months for sure, getting to compete on the biggest stage in Mixed Martial Arts was a wild ride for sure! I came up short from the goals I set for myself and it was disappointing for sure. That being said, the six years I spent preparing, training, and sacrificing was worth every second and I’m far from done!
First of all, yet another episode passed without some of the more embarrassing house moments being shown, hallelulah! Instead, the episode starts with Dustin Pague giving a gift bag to a homeless guy that we passed every day on the way to the gym, what can I say, he was a genuinely good guy. Then even more Pague antics as he eats a cockroach for $60, I wasn’t impressed.
We’re back for yet another week of Ultimate Fighter action and good fun. This episode kicks off with the different groups in the house being highlighted, which was pretty accurate. I don’t really enjoy playing cards but at this point I was taking what I could get for entertainment.
This week’s episode picks back up with the little bit of karma that is Roland’s foot infection. You get to see him and his teammates talking it over, with them assuring him that everything’s going to be alright. Under the circumstances I wanted to smile but I really did hate that he didn’t get to fight at one hundred percent. I guess that’s what separates me from this season’s dirty little snakes in the grass.
Episode 5 kicked off with Diego having another Diego moment, him having some words with Siler about their upcoming fight. Over the last few weeks I’ve seen a lot of people bad mouthing Diego for his behavior thru the first few episodes so I wanted to come on and say give the kid a break, you all have no idea.
Episode 3 kicks off with the recap of the previous featherweight fight between Marcus Brimage and Bryan Caraway before showing training sessions of each team. During Team Mayhem’s training session, Bisping and his esteemed assistant coaches, Razor Rob, Tiki, and Brady “Stinky Pinky” Fink take the tires off Mayhem’s car and put them in his locker room. That was a definite Win for Team Bisping. So that makes the official prank score 1-1 with Team Bisping coming back strong from the previous tire incident.
First things first, yea, I said it. Hot diggity damn is right, I was fired up. The last episode left off with me and fifteen others winning our fights to get in the house so I was pumped. Again, my hats off to my opponent, Karsten Lenjoint, he fought a hell of a fight. I can guarantee you’ll see more from him in the future.
First of all, it’s freaking awesome to be one of the first 16 chosen to represent the featherweight division on TUF, I FINALLY feel like all the hard work has started to pay off. To be honest, I still haven’t watched anyone else’s fights but my own so I’ll give you my take on my fight and the whole experience.
