The United Arab Emirates made a reality show identical to UFC’s TUF, and the 10th episode just aired…

Last year I got an email from a guy that said MiddleEasy should be partial to this Arab MMA event since our site is just one letter away from ‘Middle East.’ That’s pretty deep logic. Almost like how people say President Obama’s name is just one letter away from ‘Osama.’ I guess the same could be applied to No Fear Energy drink’s slogan, ‘It gives you a kick.’ I mean, just imagine if the ‘kick’ was replaced with the fourth level of the alphabet and that phrase would have an entirely new meaning — a meaning that would be widely popular in West Hollywood and parts of San Francisco.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away there’s this place called Dubai that’s home to an array of gold plated Mercedes Benz. Ewoks live there to protect the planet from Stormtroopers. That’s what someone told me, I’ve never been there personally. Actually that’s a lie. Last year I had a five-hour layover in Dubai, so I took the metro out of the airport and visited some mall that had the biggest pinball arcade I’ve ever seen.

That’s my extent of the UAE, some superfluous mall with an enormous amount of pinball machines and an abundant amount of halal food. However if you want to know more about the Middle Easyt, then perhaps you should check out ‘Al Batal,’ an MMA reality show filmed in the United Arab Emirates that’s exactly like UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter. In fact the 10th episode just aired, and we have it after the jump for your viewing pleasures.
