    Yea.. the "challenges" were gay. But this current system of one team having control until they lose has made the show boring and predictable until the semi-finals.

    This season has been especially bad. Jens' team paired up their best against BJ's worst. And once they ran out of talent, we got to see a jem of a fight between Gray and Weems. :rolleyes:

    They need to revamp the fight matchup system somehow.

    no, they need to stop putting little bitches on the show who are drama whores (gabe) and shittastic fighters (weems).

    and give it to real fighters. people they've SEEN fight, even.

    The challenges of the first few seasons were fun to watch as well as giving the fighters a little better chance of not being tossed to the wolves if their teammates got beat. Long term, the show is about one person winning, and it sucks to get paired up with somebody who is a tough matchup for you stylisitcally because the last person who fought got caught.

    Some of them were bad.

    I distinctly remember the competitors carrying water bottles up a fire escape. And the one where the smaller guy had to crawl all over the big guy for 45 minutes, then the other team forfeited.

    But this current system of "I'm going to get my two best guys into the next round by fighting thier cans" sucks. Bad. It makes the show almost unwatchable until the semi-final fights.

    I think the ratings are reflecting that.

    Having Stevenson go over Whitehead was impressive, and Rich's strategy of forfeiting was great. He was right that both Joe and Mike needed to have medical attention and couldn't train properly for awhile.

    I liked the competitions, we got to see the fighters actually do some interesting challenges.

    yeah they definately need to stop puttin cans and drama queens on there. put nothing but skilled real fighters, not 4 people you want to see in the finals and a bunch of scrubs for them to fight so they can get there.
