“The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights”- episode 11 & 12 recap

Well, this is it. Two hours and four fights and we will know who is the newest Ultimate Fighter. We have been teased with the possible return of “Kimbo” all season since his elimination, and will find out tonight if it was a ratings ploy, or if he truly will be back in contention for the title.

The episode starts with Dana White addressing the guys and explaining the possibility of Mitrione maybe not being able to go. Dana calls in “Kimbo” to see his mindset on possibly fighting again, and gives his thoughts on “Kimbo’s” knee injury.

Dana informs viewers that “Kimbo” is suffering from arthritis, but cannot believe that “Kimbo” is turning down a shot for a fight with McSweeney. “Kimbo” explains that he is using his brains instead of his brawn in this decision to not go, and that he will fight another day.

Justin “The Viking” Wren’s “The Ultimate Fighter 10″ blog – episode 8

Justin Wren takes on Roy Nelson on Wednesday, Nov. 11, on The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights on Spike TV.

Episode 8: Itsy Bitsy Spider

The episode started off with the Recap of the Junk vs. Mitrione fight. I was quoted saying Junk fought to 10 percent of his potential. I think he fought with a ton of heart though. Junk in practice is a monster, an animal; he has great conditioning contrary to what he showed and is a well-rounded fighter.

I still think he was the top one or two guys on his team. Junk had to have eye surgery after the fight, and also going into the fight he put a lot of pressure on himself for his family. I will not go into what happened but there was a family tragedy that struck him before he left and it was really on his mind. All that, plus the house puts a lot of pressure on people, and I think that should be told to people who have never thought about it.

Justin Wren TUF Blog: Schoonover beats Zak

Rampage should have never taken the job of a coach; he is a pure fighter, and has no business at all coaching. I think they have showed Rampage calling Darrill “Titties” a little bit but still no-where near as much as the heckling really was. At least twice a day, whenever we would see Rampage at training he would harass Darrill and call him “Titties” over and over. Darrill took more than most anyone ever would. When he is getting ready for a fight, and being heckled, I can completely see why he wanted to shut Rampage up!

The episode started off with a recap of last episode, and then went into the Darrill drinking in the house. The editing did show it closer to his fight than what it really was. Darrill wasn’t drinking any after the first several days in the house. The talk between him and our coaches was one of the first several days. When the commercial comes back, Rashad sticks up for Darrill, and Rampage doesn’t have much to rebuttal Rashad.
