    Vinny has been relatively active on the "official" TUF forum the past few days. Starting to make me think it's because he wins the fight that will be aired tonight. He has also said that he is training at Xtreme Couture along with Junie - and that Junie has been nothing like the way he was in the house/on the show.

    I hate to say it, because I am a fan of Bader and all of the ASU wrestlers who fight now. But that was possibly the most boring fight I have seen. It was a good plan to win but very boring. Seemed like Bader respected Elliot's BJJ and did not want to get caught by being to aggressive. Still I am happy bader won and I hope he gets Krystopgfhg in the final.

    Elliot was smart for wanting to fight Bader sooner than later.

    Bader looked 90% wrestler - 10% fighter.

    By the time the finals roll around, he should be a more complete fighter.
    (At least that's my theory)

    Terrible fight from Bader from a viewer perspective. From a "get to the Finals" perspective, it was excellent.

    Dana wasn't too transparent in his dislike of the results of that fight. I am a huge Bader fan, but I think it is going to be tough for White to get excited about Bader. Funny considering how he is so high on Brock given that the two fighters seem to be carbon copies with the exception of Brock being more ground and pound to Bader's ground and ______.

    Bader did what he had to do.

    Elliot is an accomplished black belt so if Bader got overaggressive it could have put him in very dangerous positions.

    Right now Bader is a newbie in the sport so once he learns more bjj he will become more exciting.

    Thank God Junie is gone!!!!

    Also I am not blaming Bader for what he did. He did what he had to do to win and that is fine. From a fan that was boring as Zapp said.

    Yes, Bader's fight was pretty boring, even he admits that. But if you can take a guy down at will and be guaranteed a spot in the finals, wouldn't you just keep taking him down? Or would you try to create scrambles and/or keep it on the feet, which is the only way you can possibly lose?

    Oh, and Frank Mir is the biggest douchebag ever. He needs to go ride his motorcycle more often.
