The shows look and feel is notably different. The opening montage with its quick cuts feels more like NFL coverage, and coverage of families that was remarkably poignant.

In a stark reminder that half the people lose every fight, and what is at stake, Kito Andrews spoke movingly about what it would mean for his family if he won. He lost, and the loss was more painful , more real than it would have been in seasons past.

In the end, his son walked over and said he was still proud of him. It was beautiful.

why do I have a feeling that Chael will end up being a hell of a coach?
Could it be the wrestling background and training regimented into him where he actually has knowledge of coaching?
Or will it be that he pulls a "Tito" and shows he is actually involved with these guys and really takes them and teaches them.

Will the show cast Jones in an even worse angle?

Chael is a master in front of the camera compared to most of the fighters and I somehow feel he will shine in this like no one else has

Leo can scrap, I've seen him fight. He has a solid chin, decent stand up and good power his Cardio in the fights I watched was good. I'm surprised they didn't pick Tim Welch that dude is a stud as well.

I can't wait to see if Josh my old instructor from Sakura makes it on next season, that dude is a beast with great all around skills.

Anyway, Montana's rooting for you Leo go knock some fuckers out and best of luck to you sir! <img src="/images/phone/droid.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>

This is what I'm most looking forward to!
Chael, by many accounts, is a great coach and I can't wait to watch that Phone Post

I`m only watching because I simply can`t believe that a fighter made it that lives in the same city as I do.A city that use to have a population under 30,000.
