Observations from My Couch: UFC Fight Night 22 "Ultimate TUFers Go Down"

  • Ross Pearson won TUF 9 and like his fellow reality show brethren, was being brought along slowly and being fed guys he could beat.  Too bad Cole Miller had other ideas.
  • Jim Miller makes me want to grow a beard and kill what I eat.
  • Gleison Tibau makes me want to avoid hair products at all costs.
  • Efrain Escudero won TUF 8 and was fed newcomer Charles Oliveira.  By the end, Escudero was choking so bad the referee had to stop the fight so he could perform the Heimlich Maneuver.
  • If you thought Oliveira was badass, wait until you see fellow Brazilian UFC newcomer Edson Barbosa.  Barbosa is to Muay Thai what Oliveira is to jiu-jitsu.
  • The funny thing about Rousimar Palhares losing is that he had a better chance of defeating Chael Sonnen than Nate Marquardt does.
  • Also, the other funny thing about Palhares losing is that HE STOPPED FIGHTING BEFORE THE FIGHT WAS OVER.
