    One of the most hainus knock outs of all time happened tonight.
    Rich "Ace" Franklin KO'd Nate "Rock" Quary.
    I thought i just watched someone die. Glad he was ok.
    Any other riders follow these epic battles?

    I sometimes watch "Pride" here in Japan. Pretty brutal but somehow compelling. I like the K1 better though.

    I watch UFC when it's on TV, but I wouldn't pay (pay-per-view) to see it. Glad Franklin won. Can't wait to see the knockout.

    You might be shocked to know that I was addicted to the reality show when it was on Spike. I hope they continue with more seasons.

    They are definately committed to season 3 and supposedly have already agreed to season 4.

    Edit: The coaches are Shamrock and Ortiz. That could get ugly.

    It is hard to follow for me here as I only have ghetto cable. I hear about the national stuff but it seems to be kind of canned. We have quite a local scene but it is mostly underground as it is kind of illegal here in NY.

    My last employer found out about my participation in a couple of events and well lets just say we parted ways. I am to old to actively participate in it anyways. My brother was an excellent fighter but his wife put the kybosh on his participation. I still like to fight but it takes its toll on both my personal life and my body. The last event I participated I got my ass kicked really bad. Just watching is not enough for me though.

    One of my best friends is the cousin of Chuck Liddell (he's bad ass). I don't get the pay per view ones because I don't have that option, but I do enjoy the show on Spike and thought Nate had a chance.

    I have rented a few of the DVD's when I have little else to do, now I have to see this knockout.

    I hope there is a rematch soon between Hughes and St. Pierre. Though I am convinced that Hughes has hollow bones because he looks a whole lot heavier than 169.

    Dana anounced that Shamrock and Ortiz were going to be the coaches for TUF 3. He brought them out to the cage, and Shamrock tried to fight Ortiz right there. It was prety funny. Should be an interesting TUF3.
    They hate each other.
