I’ll be pretty upfront about this: the last time that I watched The Ultimate Fighter was when Tito Ortiz was pissing off Ken Shamrock and the elusive “double turn” happened where Ken Shamrock, who went into the show as the babyface, walked out of the show as the irrational heel while Tito Ortiz, the heel, walked away as the good guy. Ken Shamrock didn’t bring in a BJJ coach to the show, he brought a guy who was there to cook steaks for the team. Why? Because Ken could teach you the leglock and his choice for a coach could cook you some red meat so you get your protein to look ripped, what the hell else do you need?
TUF: Brazil provided some crazy action that had people stoked and apparently TUF: Latin America is providing some similar stuff with their debut season. It’s always nice for people to be hungry and looking to impress outside of just treating TUF as an opportunity to push personal brands and whatever else. There have apparently been some pretty crazy KOs going down on TUF: Latin America, which might be enough to get me to watch. This latest one is from Leonardo Morales against Masio Fullen.
