Why do you think so?

Neer had his back early on, didn't finish him off (didn't try to), neither of them really went for submissions on the ground, Neer hardly threw any strikes, when Nate threw his punches, he wasn't even trying to hit hard.

No one was looking to finish, when the announcer said the Neer won the first round, he shook his head no, then when he said that Nate one the second round, he shook his head yes, and I don't buy the "Good sportsmanship" line for that.

I'd imagine if he'd thrown the fight he'd have been paid to do it. Wouldn't you want to make sure of your money, like having diaz finish the fight. Don't know if anyone can throw a fight by split decision, especially seeing some of the judging decisions of late.

IMO, was a good fight. Diaz has great jujitsu, that is why neer couldn't finish him off when he had his back.

Guida looked very good and controlled to me, will definately be up there with the best in the division IMO, or atleast he'll allways be on shows as he's such an entertaining fighter.

Exactly. To think that Neer threw the fight is ridiculous. It was just a close decision.

Neer didn't throw any fight; he's not that kind of guy. He's a solid fighter and it was only due to Diaz's style and game plan that it didn't work for him. Diaz DOES NOT throw hard punches; like his brother they throw punches in bunches; a lazy many punch that many times aren't even close fists. More annoying then anything else and add up on the score card but if you don't see one coming then you could be seeing stars.

I enjoyed the fight; enjoyed them all. I didn't have to pay for it but I would have.

One of the better UFC cards in my mind, glad it was on some free TV. I think Nate should get Tyson Griffin next

Bean pole against stocky; what a combination. This would be a good fight but I would put my money on Griffin though Nate always seems to pull something out of his ...

From what I saw this tuf season looks to be the worst ever. Drunken brawls, house destruction, general idiocy.

Gives TMA a good name.

Unfortunately Brian it actually promotes this stuff more.

When I look at the kids today I see a lot of disregard for property, elders and such. This is what these young fighters are doing in the house so it only perpetuates MMA more.

Now as an adult I dislike this component however admittingly I enjoy watching these reality based shows. I enjoy getting to see the other side of the fighter and if you look at most of these, the majority of the good ones rise to the top not only on the mat but also in the house. If they are respectful in the house, while still having a good time, then this goes far in my books and when they make it to the "show" I feel a sense of knowing who and what they are better then just some guy showing up to fight. Almost like I have vested interest in this individual(s). An a$$ is an a$$ and to see them lose is fine with me because they had no respect for anything.
