  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: Judges Don't Have Slightest Idea How to Score Fights

    In this weeks episode the judges proved once again that they don't have the slightest idea about how to do their job.Before I get too far into that lets recap a little bit: Neil vs Cameron was a decent fight with what almost everyone agrees was a good decision.Sam vs Joey was not really all that controversial but it was a split decision with enough people (me included) saying that a third round would have been nice. Bristol vs Julian was a fight that Bristol won but took way more damage during the course of the fight, a third round could have been used.Igor vs Nick was a controversial decision with even Dana White telling everyone that Nick deserved a third round. Eddy vs Colton was ...
  • Meet Anna Dudley: The Future of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

    They say there is always two sides to a coin; two sides to a story. This is generally the case for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners. Some people do it because it's fun and will tell you it's nothing but a hobby, while a select few understand that with jujitsu the possibilities are endless. One of those select few is 9 year old, Anna Dudley, who just recently started fourth grade at Quarry Hill Community School in Monson, Ma. Long before Dudley could even imagine the fourth grade she was on the mats learning BJJ from one of her heroes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Marco Alvan. Under Alvan's tutelage Dudley has become well known throughout the NAGA circuit as a fearsome opp...
  • Ronda Rousey and Cyborg Santos as TUF Coaches Would Increase Ratings and Showcase Female Fighters

    UFC President Dana White is finally warming up to the idea that women have a place in his organization. White, who had previously been extremely critical over women inside the octagon, now entertains the idea ever since he laid eyes on one, "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey. Rousey, currently the women's bantamweight champion for the Zuffa owned Strikeforce, has been destroying her opponents each within the first round of competition and is currently ranked the number one female fighter on the planet. Of course, before Rousey there was Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos, but Santos derailed her own train after testing positive for a banned substance. The one-time queen of the featherwei...

  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: Another Bad Judging Decision and Why Roy Nelson is a Bad Coach

    So in the latest episode, Episode 6 "Return of the "Big ol" Jedi" the show started with a recap of last weeks fight and it showed Big Country informing Nick that he lost because he didn't listen to him. Team Big Country was just starting to get upset about the coaching style of their leaders and it was apparent it was starting to bug everyone. Then once again it went to Secor picking fights with the other team and this time it was the shirtless wonder, the Canadian sensation, the thunder from down under (the north pole) Mike Hill. It was fun watching the show this week because none of us knew who stole that chicken until now. Apparently it wasn't Mike but he s...

  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: The Fart Heard Around The World

    So this week was episode five "The Empire (of Carwin) Strikes Back" and it really had no lack of action. The episode started with a brief overview of how last weeks fight went with Julian explaining how he feels right now, and to his credit he really was upset that he lost. Everyone in the house kind of overlooked him as being a threat but he did some real damage to Bristol and was truly shook up that he lost. Then Flash Forward another day it has Julian getting really upset with Secor. When you take a hot head like Julian and put him in a house with a mouth like Secor you know it will get Rough, and this episode was just the tip of the iceberg. For the rest of the season we refe...
  • Heather Clark vs. Stephanie Eggink Set for XFC 21 : Night of Champions II

    Heather Clark returned to the winning column in her last XFC appearance, with a first round submission choke over Avery Vilche at XFC 18. The Jackson Winklejohn's product is now ready to make her new home in the XFC Strawweight division and will take on newly signed XFC talent, former USA Boxing Team member, Stephanie Eggink.

It was reported at the time that Clark was ahead on the judge's cards. In her post fight interview, the fiery fighter strongly petitioned for a rematch with Kheyfets follo...
  • Sam Alvey's TUF Blog: Marunde Gets Team Carwin Back on Top, Movie Night, and Sleeping in Bed Again

    So it has been one week since my minor setback by the hands (or foot) of Joey Rivera. Fear not, this smiling guy is back in action for episode four (“A New Hope - For Carwin’s Team”). The episode starts off with Dana treating the house to a movie night. He bought us popcorn and everything! The little twist of this sequence is that we actually did not see the movie until after the Bristol/Julian fight. Yours truly got a little screen time testifying how good the movie was. Let me tell you, I actually really enjoyed the movie Here Comes the BOOM. I don’t expect it to win any Academy Awards, but if you are looking for a few laughs or something to entertain the kids, then it gets 3.5 out of 5 ...
