    Friday’s at 9 kinda suck, I only caught an hour of it before I went out. Not sure if that contributes toward the ratings.

  2. Eric says:

    Was horrible format and was so bored after 7 fights I turned it off.

  3. Jason N says:

    I liked it. Maybe people didnt want to watch the Gay porn star. He didnt want to fight. He just wanted a hug

    1 round fights was cool.

    Am I the only person who finds everything FoX does to the broadcast to be extremely fucking lame and cheesy?

    The music, The graphics, The announcer… everything… so fucking bad…

    This isn’t fucking Nascar..

      And which retard thought it was a good idea to put a warning at the beginning saying

      “this may be the most exciting event you have ever seen” or some such thing..

      Like.. really? Do you realize that raising expectations like that, actually makes things less exciting? Just makes a less then stellar show even more dissapointing if you put that much pressure on it.

      You had the same warning before the Cain vs Dos Santos fight…. Does anyone remember how that turned out?

      So stupid…. 50% of us roll our eyes at your little warning.

    These are excellent numbers. Lets make TUF Brazil on FX as well.

    I liked it. The only problem I had was Jon Anik. Can someone please shut him the hell up. He’s about as useful as frozen water in Antarctica.

    Let’s get Helwani in the commentator’s chair. The dude is bright, charming (no homo) and entertaining.

    I loved the format and the premiere. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Haters are either have low I.Q.s, are rednecks, women, or gay men. Nothing against them, but those usually are who the haters are.
