MMA: The Ultimate Fighter Episode 4 Recap

After a fantastic fight last week, Ryan McGillivray beat Len Bentley and put Team Dos Santos up 2-1 in the game.

With another win for his team, Junior Dos Santos and his coaches again had control over the fight matchups. During Team Dos Santos' training session, Lew Polley (the coach who got in trouble for running Dos Santos' practices too hard and injuring a fighter) went into detail about how his team is outworking Brock Lesnar's team in training. That's interesting, considering they never actually see the other team train.

Regardless of Polley's infinite wisdom, Team Lesnar's training session looked pretty intense and fast-paced. Lesnar even booted a fighter from the cage when he thought he wasn't going all out. Lesnar couldn't seem to get on the same page with his fighters though, as everyone looked drained or distracted in one way or another.

The fight announcement came and went as Dos Santos chose Ramsey Nijem to represent his team and Charlie Rader from Team Lesnar. As usual, both teams talked about how this was a "great matchup" for their team, but someone's got to be wrong.

In what I hope to God was a head game being played by Nijem, he had his toenails painted a purple sparkle color and talked at length about how much he enjoyed the show Glee. He then decided to get butt naked and dance around for all the other men in the house. Intense. After Team Lesnar told Nijem they're not sure whether he understands he's going to have to fight, Nijem retreated to his room where he explained to his roommate that this was his plan all along. Well he could've fooled me with the strip tease and purple toenails. Well played, Nijem.

Lesnar decided to bring in UFC legend and former 170-pound champ Matt Hughes as inspiration for his team in their next training session. Hughes had some really good tips for Rader and his upcoming fight. We'll see if it paid off or not.



Round 1 started off with both men clinching and trading knees to each other's body before Nijem put a knee right in Rader's man parts, and the referee separated them. After the break, Nijem rushed forward again to assume their previous clinch position up against the cage. Nijem tried hard for a takedown for the first four minutes with nothing to show for it. Finally, with a minute left, Nijem got a takedown only to have Rader scramble right back to his feet. Nijem got one more takedown with 30 seconds left and the round ended with very little damage being done to anyone.

The second stanza started off with both fighters swinging wildly in the center of the cage before Nijem again rushed in to put Rader up against the cage. Nijem's work paid off as he got a quick takedown and kept scoring points with pressure. Soon enough, the pressure was too much for Rader as he lost a scramble and gave up his back a minute into the second round. Nijem worked quickly to take advantage of his opponent's mistake as he sunk in a rear-naked choke forcing a tap out from Rader to get the victory. Lesnar and Dana White went on to agree that it was obvious that Rader quit once he realized he lost that first round. There's a good way to lose and a bad way, it looked like Rader chose the bad way.

Team Dos Santos now holds a commanding 3-1 lead in the game and will continue to pick and choose the matchups that they want.

Hi Raymond,> you have destroyed the swf fomart for people like myselfSWF fomart had to be open to be successful and accepted, and so Macromedia opened it in 1998.We were the first to offer a decompiler, but today there are (too) many around.This was inevitable with an open fomart that runs in a VM. There were JAVA decompilers, and there are .Net decompilers, as well as obfuscators.> you make an application that allows the theft of actionscriptTechnically, that may be true. But ASV has many legit uses and those are the intended uses. Your generic Xanax may be used for killing people (I guess, with overdose), I don't see any difference. (And computers can be used for crime, cameras can be used for child porn, the list goes on )> Every single one of your customers is just as bad as the warez organisations you hate so much.You are so wrong about why I hate warez organizations. I'm reluctant to write about this I hate them because a pirate copy of ASV is unfair for the paying customers of ASV. People who pay for software do not use warez. Every pirate copy of ASV actually makes ASV more known and increases our sales. But it's not fair. Sounds like crazy? I wouldn't have believed it, if it wasn't my own experience.And about our customers Now I wish my ethics would allow me to quote some of them. Just one example: Ad industry uses ASV and UAE for very legit purposes as you may guess, checking scripts in SWF ads we love to hate.Raymond, I think you are wrong, I know you are wrong. I hope you'll see it in time, maybe 5 years later. You may not approve decompilers, and it's OK. But the way you react and targeting me/us as the only one responsible is way too wrong. Anyway, that's my opinion and probably expected.I wish you well.Burak

It is the moment in time for this truck to show iestlf to the world that it now is a class leading truck.When the video shows him coming out of the quarry,the trailer load needs to be more than a small tractor,how about a full load of mining equiptment,like a tunnel boring machine on a trailer,and some hugh drilling bits in the bed of the truck,strap down and all.Not a back yard tractor brand new,doesn't fit the image coming from the pit.Show this truck tough,loaded for bear and also has the claws to rip the side of the mountain off if needed.Ram-tough get-it,my truck I bought used from a mining company and they beat the heck out of that truck for it was just a 1 year lease get-it,and it look every bit of it. Used as seem at a auction

I'm about a month behind here. I had a goal for July, which I reechad (added 30,000 to my WIP). I took off the first week of August and with the rest of the month, planned on editing everything I wrote in July, to be ready to continue on with the story the first of September. Well....that didn't happen. :( Took me longer to get the work edited and other things came up. Then school started and what not. Then I had to do a pre-edit on one of my other stories. So here I am.....but I'll be ready to get back to writing tomorrow!! So the plan is to write another 30,000 words in October!!

I'm incredibly dissapointed with the season of the ultimate fighter. I haven't been impressed with anyone with the exception of Tony Ferguson. It just feels like sub-par talent, and I don't think Lesnar really gives a crap. I will say that Junior Dos Santos is probably the nicest guy in the world who could kill someone with one punch.

Aldo & machida win. I agree somewhat with the Henderson analysis.. But I think Henderson wins a close fight.. Its really tough to bet against St.Pierre. But- I had to. I got over 3 to 1 on Shields & he's a stud. His record speaks for it self.. St Pierre more than likely wins by dec. -but- I like to gamble. Sigh*

I'd agree if Walt was writing the articles, but I don't gamble on the fights myself so I surely can't ask you to. I'm just giving a breakdown of the fighters and how I think the match up will play out, I guess that's the main reason I don't make it a clear point to tell you to expect what I think may happen. If the insight I offer on the fighters helps you gamble, then I'm glad but gambling isn't my thing (I like keeping my money, haha). I appreciate the feedback though.

I'm a gambler. Walter runs hands-down the best free gambling tip website there is, and it's good because it's clear(and net positive). I'm not criticizing your writing. The writing is fine, but the picks are wishy washy. It's just not consistent with the rest of the website. It should be: Diaz(-220) 2 units. Do you agree?
