    It's awesome when two guys who lack knockout power swing at eachother like animals

    It was awesome because you could see how badly they both wanted to win.

    The only thing I thought was lame was the challenges. I'd be pissed to get eliminated from a fighting show without fighting.

    They had 2 "challenges" where the teams would compete in some activity. The coach of the team that lost had to pick one of his guys to send home.

    Injury is a good reason to be out of the competition.

    That's a good observation. When you see a fight where there is THAT much passion and will it's memorable.. which is why forrest v. bonnar was rated #1 ufc fight of all time

    I don't even know how the judges managed to pick a winner. Both guys landed a metric shitload of strikes, both guys took each other down, both guys were aggressive, and both guys fought their hearts out. My head was swimming trying to figure out who did more.

    I remember watching that fight and calling a couple friends to turn it on. It was an epic fight, and like JC said you could see both wanted that fight so bad.

    I downloaded all the seasons in a row, it was interesting to watch the show evolve.

    season one was the only good season imo. And man, what a fight bonnar/forrest was!!

    You could see the look of disappointment in bonnars face...i thought it was pretty sweet that he also got a contract

    S1 was the best season because it didnt have all the 'I wanna be on TV' guys on it.

    True. I've skipped through a lot of the show. Especially on Season 10. Several episodes I just watched the fights.

    Leben was a douche on the show, but koscheck spraying him with water after all that was pretty fucked up. I still don't like koscheck because of that.
