Tonight started the new season of the reality TV show: The Ultimate Fighter (Season 1o). The past seasons of this show are partly responsible for my current affection for the UFC. It's a show in which I not only get the luxury of getting to know up and coming fighters in the industry, but also learn better the personalities and stories of current UFC fighters who are the "coaches" of the rookies.
This season, the focus is the HEAVYWEIGHT division. At first glance, I'm a bit apprehensive about the entire heavyweight division. I tend to believe their fights are slower and more boring. The fighters tend to look like they tire out quicker than some of the other weight divisions, and overall the fights are not that exciting until someone gets knocked out. Think underwater fighting - that slow sometimes. Therefore, it would make sense that I've been a bit unsure about the brand new Ultimate Fighter season involving heavyweights. However, these apprehensions have been put to the side tonight... for one reason, and for one reason only at present... RAMPAGE.
I love this guy... he cracks me up! The facial expressions, the wise cracks, the sense of humor, he's hilarious. I look forward to hopefully being proved wrong regarding the heavyweight division, but in the meantime, at least I know I'll continue to want to see this season because our Memphis own, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is a part of the festivities. Let the games begin.
