For my own selfish reasons I opted out.I also made a decision to go ho ... Read the Full Article Here

Well, all except Marciea. At the time, we had no idea why she wasn’t coming with us to the tattoo parlor, but when we returned, she let us know that she had a flight booked to leave the house early. Mostly because of the tension between her and Maurice, she felt uncomfortable living in the house, so we had a team meeting and talked her out of leaving by helping her reali ...

  • Expect The Korean Zombie To Deliver An Exciting Fight Once Again

    As Chan Sung Jung watched his protégé, Jinsoo Son, compete in the Octagon for the first time against Petr Yan in September, it was almost as if “The Korean Zombie” was feeling every punch and kick thrown over 15 frantic minutes of action. “Rather than being excited, I was really overwhelmed at the thought of having a fighter that I trained from scratch being in the Octagon,” said Jung, who didn’t have to worry about his fighter being able to handle himself under the bright lights, as if delivered a Zombie-esque performance before losing a decision t ...

  • TUF Blog: Maurice Greene Part 9

    As I suspected, some of my antics bled into this week's episode.I'm not necessarily proud of my behavior, but the TUF house does weird things to your mind and sometimes you need an outlet for all the pressure. My outlet was alcohol. You know, a lot of guys come on the show trying to be a "personality" and that was never my intention, to try to put on a front. I was just trying to be myself, highs and lows, good and bad.Anyway, I was heated up and a little drunk, and I just can't wait to put my hands on Juan. This is the fight that I've wanted since early on in the TUF house. As I've made clear ... Read the Full Article Here

  • TUF Blog: Leah Letson Part 9

    Once again, Maurice Greene and his drinking stole the show this week. I didn't mind Mo's drinking in the house -- I'm not one to judge and it was entertaining sometimes -- until I realized how much it was affecting Marciea Allen. Mo's behavior, along with Marciea basically being eliminated from the tournament, almost made her leave the house before the tournament ended. Thankfully we were able to convince her to stay. Marciea is a fierce competitor and, despite not having an easy go in the TUF house, I know she'd really regret leaving the show prematurely. That's the kind of thing fans will ...
