TUF 11, episode 2 recap

source: mmajunkie.com

With the season debut and elimination-round fights out of the way, this week we turn to episode No. 2 of "The Ultimate Fighter 11" and the next round of the competition.

An episode-one recap shows us some highlights and introduces us to the 14 fighters who won their way into the "TUF" house: Kyle Noke, Rich Attonito, Charles Blanchard, Josh Bryant, Nick Ring, Kyacey Uscola, Joe Henle, (MMAjunkie.com blogger) Brad Tavares, James Hammortree, Jamie Yager, Court McGee, Clay McKinney, Chris Camozzi and Kris McCray.

As the second episode gets underway, we watch the guys pull up to their new home for the next six weeks. After a mad dash for bedrooms, Clay reminds us how important it was for the fighters to win their first bouts.

"No one remembers the guys who got beat," he says.

After some handshakes, hugs and nervous boasting, a few of the walking wounded share battle stories from their elimination-round fights. Chris, for example, has a broken tooth in the back of his mouth that's now infected, and Clay complains of a shoulder injury.

After some well-deserved rest, the fighters return to the TUF Training Center the following day, and coaches Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz are ready to pick teams.

Think about this - because of the timing of when Tito did it, chances are Clayton will never forget that escape in his life. Tito is a great coach.

That whole sequence felt hammy to me. Tito was playing up to the cameras on “what a great coach he is.” There’s no way Clayton’s mind was in a place to absorb anything right then. Plus, the end sequence was all about mastery of basics. It’s not like he didn’t know what happened, Noke just executed better than he did. In theory proper defense and recognition should render submission holds obsolete, yet they still keep happening. There isn’t much room for error/improper technique when people are going 100% live.

Clayton came off like a douche and so did Jay or whoever the dude with the afro is.Why is losing by triangle so unbelievable? It's one of the most common submissions in MMA for a reason, it's a good one.

How about Noke? As soon as it hit the ground it was like someone flipped the switch to the "On" position. That guy was a machine. Sub attempt to sub attempt to sub.
