RugbyD That bit with Chris crying after a loss really did show how immature he was. Except for maybe looking at that as pansy, there was absolutely nothing pansy about that series at all.
After Chris' s next fight he got his emotions in check, went back inside, and congratulated his opponent on beating him.
C'mon, there just wasnt anything pansy about the series at all. IMHO, as someone that hates most reality TV, that was very well done and a good series.
One guy had to lose 20 pounds in 24 hours to fight. I didnt think that was physically possible. Not only did he do that but he won his fight within 24 hours of loseing 20 pounds in a day bye knock-out.
I know it didnt always have the Hollywood movie blood splatter effect when they fought movies like Fight Club have, but that is what real fights look like.
Unlike the anomaly Forest-Bonner and Hollywoodfights, over 90% of fights end up on the ground if someone isnt knocked out or hurt bad quickly.
That Forest fighter was amazing. I couldnt believe his history and his arm deformation. In a previous fight he had his arm broken in a fight because he refused to submit and tap out after being put in an arm lock. What happens after he has his arm broken? He knocks his opponent out with his good arm.
The producers did a good job a profiling Bonner and Forest in the intro. I really didnt know who to root for. Like someone else said, bye the middle of the fight, I predicted they would both get contracts.
That was one of those 1 in a 100 fights that just made your adrenaline get going from watching. I felt like I was 10 years old leaving the theatre after a Rocky movie again, only that was real.
Two great fighters who each respected the other's ground ability so much that they each with no collaberation decided their best chance of winning was to stay on their feet and try and win bye knockout.
It made for a very rare display in real fights where two fighters gave their all and were so evenly matched, that neither could control the other.
I'm still surprised it didnt end in a draw. I cant wait for the rematch and I will for sure order it off pay-per view.
