The Ultimate Fighter 19: Team Edgar v. Team Penn – Week 8 Recap

How about that TUF: Brazil 3 finale, eh? Okay, I’ll admit that the card kind of stunk. The ratings were in the toilet. The main event was an absolute farce. But hey, for those of us who had...

The Ultimate Fighter 19 – Team Edgar v. Team Penn – Week 5 Recap

It’s possible that I’ve been too harsh in my appraisal of the 19th edition of The Ultimate Fighter. This is not the most boring season, nor does it have the least talented cast or the worst...
