Discussion in 'OT Bar' started by Bausk, Oct 18, 2007.
Looking for a download and/or recap. Any help?
-Mac freaks out on the Bowman. Calls him an inbred hick because he's butthurt over Andy wang losing and doesn't like Hightower in the first place.
-Hughes takes them all aside, says that he's dissapointed in Mac for doing so. He's supossed to be their team leader or whatever.
-Paul gets a phonecall that his 18 year old cousin just passed away. Dana white calls afterwards and lets him know that he can go to the wake and come back as long as he fights first.
-Paul fights Rude Boy. Paul get's KO'd first round and crumples.
Overall I think this doesn't really show a lot. Serra has been a coach for a long time at his own school. Hughes seems to me to be a guy who benefits FROM coaching not a coach by himself. People on Team Hughes were thinking "oh its Matt HUGHES mothefuckers, MATT FUCKING HUGHES" and they forgot that this guy isn't really a coach.
I think he's got a lot to offer, but he CLEARLY expects people to be like him and not lose.
EDIT: Good recap that I read every week even when I watch the show.
I think its funny how he criticizes Paul for standing when hes good on the ground. COUGH HUGHES ST PIERRE TWO COUGH
I felt kind of bad for Paul, with his cousin and then his loss. And to top it off Hughes hating on him for standing for a total of what, one minute?
Though it definitely didn't look like Paul could take a punch. Every time the other dude (I refuse to call him rude boy) caught him the look on his face was like 'oh shit I don't want anything to do with this!'.
A decent fight after a streak of one-sided crapfests nonetheless.
when you go into a fight saying how you hate getting hit, you are in the wrong sport. His career is as dead as his cousin.
whoops, left of the [/mac]
Looks like Hughes picked the wrong guys so far. Aside from Mac.
Every season has a guy who don't belong and Bowman is that guy this season. Mac has upset because there are other fighters who are more deserving of the oppurnity but since Bowman is funny he got on the tv. The Wang comments from Bowman just gave Mac the chance to come out with how he felt about him.
i'm interested in seeing J-Rock (black dude with the mohawk and high pitched voice) fight...
though i'm fairly positive Hughes' team will lose ultimately
I did laugh at the "his heart wants to fight, but his body is screaming for a desk and a pencil" comment.
Mac is a bitter dude. No, Bowman isn't the fighter he is, but who the fuck cares? He made it there, for whatever reason, and the other guys didn't. Hell, from what I've seen on the show, I've trained with guys who deserve to be there more than Bowman, but he made it and they didn't. Life isn't fair, and the UFC is a business. If Spike or Dana White, or whoever gets to pick thought he'd be good for the show, more power to them for doing what's best for them.
I am as well, only because that guy is so odd.
Black guy, with a mohawk, has a high pitched voice with a southern twang, and dips.
"Andy can take a punch!"
"Just not a kick"
This had been a really shitty season so far, I don't think any of the fighters are good so far.
And what exactly does Hughes expect him to do, the fight doesn't start on the ground, you have to exchange shots at some point standing.
Matt Serra sure can coach.
Rude boy frustrated me when he was on the ground.
That guy was absolutely pathetic on the ground. Completely 1-dimensional fighter. I have trouble seeing him getting past the 2nd ground when the competition stiffens.
Hughes does such a shitty job at coaching that when he does coach, it's to inflict pain onto his students for losing their matches.
Serra seems like a douchebag sometimes, but I was surprised that he went over to Paul after the fight to console him a bit.
In for 5-1 after next week's fight with Serra's pick

Very cool. Good read.
There's a download link on that site if you don't want to watch the stream, just click on Download Original.
Serra seems like a good guy, but he's got an real obsession with Matt Hughes, I don't know what it is. Normally he's respectful even when he speaks his mind and its not positive, but he just resorts to petty insults and losses his cool about Hughes.
I hella loled at that.
