All the photographic love has gone to the coaches on this season of The Ultimate Fighter so it's about time we showered some adoration on the man behind the Ultimate Fighting Championship's reality-show darling. You might not like UFC president Dana White, but you've at least got to respect what he's done for the organization and the sport.
For the record, he might not always put his best foot forward, but he's genuine and that's more than you can say for a lot of people in a position comparable to his. Not a particularly high bar to clear, but sadly, that's where we are.
With that possible non sequitur out of the way, let's hit a quick recap before getting onto tonight's episode—the fifth of the season.
In Episode 4, Georges St-Pierre's team continued its domination of Josh Koscheck's squad. Kyle Watson used his superior grappling and a better tank to submit Andy Main after the latter appeared to gas. For whatever reason, Main was having his way with his opponent on his feet, but seemed to fade and that opened up the take down for Watson.
From there, it was all she wrote as Main looked all too content to let the rear-naked choke sink in.
Now, Team Koscheck is down 3-0, Kos promises to be on edge, and we've got some manner of Muay Thai specialist coming in to guest coach Team St-Pierre. There are also rumors of a Chuck Liddell sighting and Alex Caceres' Bruce Leeroy act is wearing thin.
Actually, it's wearing out as far as both teams are concerned.
As Terrell Owens would say (just threw up a little bit in my mouth): "Get your popcorn ready" because this should be a spicy meatball.
Check back in about 15 minutes for the start of the festivities.
