MMA: The Ultimate Fighter Episode 6 Recap

Last week's episode was filled with some drama and the season's first finish as Ramsey Nijem submitted Charlie Rader with a rear naked choke to give Team Dos Santos a commanding 3-1 lead in the game.

This week's show started off where last week ended, with Brock Lesnar chewing his team out for their apparent lack of effort in the cage. Of course, Team Lesnar drama captain Len Bentley decided the words were too hurtful and he stormed out of the locker room mid-talk. The other members of Team Lesnar seemed to appreciate their coach's honesty and understood they really had no option but to leave everything they had in the cage from now on.

The fight announcement for this week came as Junior Dos Santos chose Mick Bowman from his team to square off against Clay Harvison of Team Lesnar. Both men are seen mainly as strikers so the fight shaped up to be an exciting one.

For the third or fourth time this season, Team Dos Santos' wrestling coach Lew Polley overstepped his boundaries in training again by coaching over Dos Santos during some boxing work. This prompted Dos Santos to explain his frustration with his assistant coach in broken English: "Lew... Lew come here to coach wrestling, only wrestling. But Lew think he teach boxing... and jiu-jitsu... and everything. I think it's called Team Dos Santos for a reason." All of this was said with a big smile and it still amazes me how he's one of the nicest fighters I've ever seen outside the cage, even with a bad assistant coach constantly overstepping his dutie,s Dos Santos is somehow polite when criticizing or trying to be sarcastic. It'll be interesting to see how much more Dos Santos lets Polley get away with.

Team Lesnar's training session once again took the path toward drama as another fighter complained about teammate Chris Cope watching everyone else a little too closely. There's been no evidence of Cope passing information to Team Dos Santos, but none of his teammates seem to trust him. In the house's Zen garden, someone thought it would be funny to write "Chris Cope double agent" in the sand. Cope didn't find the joke funny and he immediately started pointing fingers at his own teammates, but nobody came forward. After a lot of anger and name calling with a mix of some hurt feelings, it turned out the message was written by Mick Bowman of Team Dos Santos, and that somehow BOTH teams consider Cope sneaky and someone you can't trust. I'm thinking Cope won't be using these guys as job references in the future.

Round 1 started off with immediate action as both fighters looked comfortable and aggressive right off the bat. After taking a couple shots, Bowman shot for a takedown but got denied and had Harvison wind up in guard. Once on the mat, Bowman immediately went for a triangle and an omoplata, but was shrugged off by Harvison. The fighters got back to their feet and Harvison went right back to landing solid combinations as Bowman started to look overwhelmed. The two met against the cage and clinched for a while, both struggling to gain position. The round ended with Bowman starting to look more comfortable striking as he started to gain momentum before the bell.

The second round began just like the first, with Harvison landing solid strikes and forcing Bowman into backing up and running rather than moving and countering. The fighters clinched against the cage for what seemed like forever until Bowman landed a good shot while separating. At that point in the fight, Harvison looked absolutely gassed as Bowman once again started finding his range and connecting with more frequency. With two minutes left, both men threw tired punches with no real damage being inflicted, and another one of Bowman's takedown attempts was denied as the second round ended.

The judges' scorecards came in, and Harvison won by decision. Sounded like good news for Lesnar and his team until Harvison told his coaches that one of his fingers was broken. When his gloves were taken off, you could literally see the bone on the underside of his pinky was sticking through the skin. Nasty. Team Lesnar finally got a win, and his fighter ended up with a compound fracture in his finger and he's going to have to go home. Either way, Team Lesnar pulls the contest to within 3-2 on the season and will control next week's fight matchup.

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?
