I thought it was touching for Ogle to embrace Pearson after the fight. He looked like a proud brother watching from the back of the arena. I wonder if Ross wasn't sitting with Team Cruz because he didn't want to support Rio or Ogle over the other, or what?

 All of this.  In my case, I have Chrome auto-load the UG, before I could even close the window, I see this spoiler thread title by UG News. I'm all for talking about the event, I just genuinely don't understand why spoilers would/should ever be in a thread title.

I clicked the UG by accident and the newsfeed just ruined it outright like 10 mins after the show.Oh well.

 There's a difference between posting spoilers in threads, and editing an existing thread to put a spoiler in its title. TUF didn't air in Eastern Canada until 3am last night.  I have strep, so staying up until 4 to watch it wasn't on my menu.  I know I'm to blame for even coming to the UG in the first place, but I deliberately ONLY looked at my subscribed threads. I knew I had posted in this one, but I was not going to open this thread until I'd watched the show.  Next thing I know, I'm scrolling through thread titles and boom...  event spoiled.  Yes, I take the lion's share of the blame in spite of everything, but I'm still questioning the necessity of editing the outcome of the fight right into the title of an existing thread. Anyway, what's done is done.

How can you have a spoiler for something that aired on live national tv twelve hours ago? Should people not talk about tonights event until you watch it in a couple days, as well?

 I, on the other hand, specifically avoided the UG last night 'cause I couldn't watch it.  I went on this morning assuming I just had to avoid the TUF Live Discussion thread.  It's bad enough we have to worry about douchebags with spoilers in the thread titles, now we have to worry about the UG fucking news doing it. I never understood what was SO FUCKING HARD about keeping spoilers out of THREAD TITLES!

Argh... Was the title edit necessary? I was only looking through my subscribed threads in order to avoid spoilers (I recorded the show, but haven't watched it) only to have it spoiled by this edited thread title.
