Default TAPOUT reality show

Did anyone catch this? It was actually pretty good...shows some of the Biz going on behind the scenes. Worth the watch. We caught it at a friends house right after a great WEC show.

I love MMA.

didn't catch the first show but did manage to catch a couple of the WEC fights. Being my first time watching the WEC I almost prefer it over the UFC due to their incorporation of the lighter weight divisions.

I wonder if/when Urijah is going to make the step to the UFC. He'd be a good match for the muscleshark. Wouldn't be too hard to pack on 10 extra lbs.

yea...that dud is a stud. the WEC is nice in that they pump through a bunch of fights with little fanfare and bullshit. Just some good MMA, all before beddy-bye time!

Saw episode 2 of the TapOut show...really good actually. The premise of the show is the tapout crew is searchign the nation for new fighters. Seems to be a co-promotion for the WEC. last night they went to the Pit and hung out with John Hackleman, Chuck Liddell and a light weight fighter Antonio (I think).

Showed some conditioning sessions at the pit...classic CF stuff plus loads of tire flips, sledge hammer work. Hackleman is frequently on the CF front page but there was no mention of CF in the piece...wonder if this will bring about some panty bunching?

Antonio lost but both fighters were VERY good. Looking forward to next week.

I haven't caught the TapOut show yet, but I have been checking out WEC on Vs. Urijah Faber is a bad azzz... I would love to see him fight Sherk. Karalexis looks pretty tough, too.
