    there has been zero bitching or cattiness with the women seems like the male seasons have had more cattiness.

    Fortunately there hasn't been much complaining this season.

    Only Lauren Murphy bitching about Eddie Alvarez has been featured on three episodes so far. They just don't mesh well. Lots of people think Murphy is being whiney, at best. Other's think Murphy has a point. Only part of the program though.

    There's another thread on Barb too based on the fight from tonight.

    only if she drops to 125 lbs which would actually be cool because a super fight with joanna champion would happen

    If you say so. I just look back at the season with Rose, Carla, etc and they were so petty and always moaning about eachother. Glad that Aussie chick keeps losing since tuf, classic bully

    It's always been that way too, even the season they shared Ronda and Tate coaching.

    Guess wil find out when they fight. Valentina gonna go down and she might be Barbs first fight. I got Barb in that one. Shes gonna avoid armbars while controlling Valentina.

    Honchak looked great. Perfect double leg takedown, defense of armbar and ground & pound in round one. Round two superb stuffing of takedown attempt, gained top control & then slammed elbows till the fight was mercifully stopped.

    Valentina's overrated by many here. She kept talking about how she'd take the fight to Nunes. Then didn't.

    I dont think she gets her down in the first place. I think Val most likely ends up in town via Judo toss now that shes going to be the bigger fighter in the cage.

    That was one of the best performances I've ever seen on TUF. She looked flawless, aside from that armbar. But her composure and that sweet escape were even more impressive than the armbar itself. That was like watching Fedor/Herring.

    great performance but the level of experience and skill was so lopsided; gillian hadnt sparred anyone near honchak caliber, much less fought one.

    this isn't like murphy who is experienced, but athletically limitied and technically limited in striking and wrestling
