This season sucks a giant bag of dicks.  Are any of these guys even going to try to finish a fight?  It's all wall-n-stall, lay-n-pray, and fucking slapfests between guys with horrible standup. Jesus.  I'm done watching.  There isn't a single contender, there isn't a single prospect, there isn't even someone who will eventually fight on the main card of a FS1 show.  It's horrible.

i feel like these guys are overtraining and not getting enough rest in the day or two before the fight although it may just be edited like that.

another boring fight..for being a #1 pick, the white guy sure didnt show much of anything in this fight..he was supposed to be such a good wrestler but we didnt see much of that...his hands were decent at best..the black guy was strong as hell but seemed to be more of a striker but his striking was ok.. so far, no one on this season stands out..just brawlers and mediocre wrestlers...

Almost every fight this season has been awful. Wouldn't be still watching if I didn't love BJ

Sad to say, but the best part of the show was the BJ vs. Frankie kayaking competition.At least BJ and Frankie were attempting to go for it.

I left half way through the 3rd. It's all tied up, a few minutes to go and no real sense of urgency from either fighter. Was infuriating to watch.

Van Buren better get KTFO, and Fields better go see a dentist.
