This week’s episode starts off showing the past fight. It was great to see Roy give Rampage shit. Rampage makes a comment that Roy has no skills but what people don’t know is the Rampage has came to Roy several times before the show for ground training. Its funny to see Rampage act like a child toward him. It was also funny that the only member that Team Rampage was Kimbo. Every other fighter got shit on after their loss and they could not stop kissing Kimbo’s ass after his loss.
Later, Brendon made a comment about Marcus doing this as a hobby and Brendon said this is how he eats. That’s very true. I felt the same way because I need this to survive and provided for my family. I’m not taking anything away from Marcus, but he has made his money and has all the opportunities we don’t. However, its not his fault for being so gifted. I don’t want to sound like I am hating on him, and I think highly of Marcus and his fighting ability. I just thought Brendon made a great point.
I enjoyed how they are showing how the “snitch” really happened. Matt is a good guy but from day one we all wondered why he was there. Matt telling Scott about the match up with Justin was definitely a way to get a different fight. Its funny to show how Matt got his nickname “Meathead”. LOL But, Matt had a great strategy to get the easiest fight in the first round and play the reality game. Which is smart, but I felt that he sold the team out as well. Matt’s first response was to switch the picks, but you get to see how we react and the whole team is ruthless toward him because we all felt betrayed.
Every member of Team Rashad did something to Matt in some way and we even loved ripping him more in front of everyone else, but it was even funnier to see the coaches go after him and make fun of him too. Matt knew what he was doing and in the next couple of episodes you will see him play more games.
The match up between Demico and Brendon was a great match up for Brendon and the team. Brendon’s coaches back home are all of Team Rashad’s coaches on the show. That’s a huge advantage to him because they already know how to coach him and what his strengths and weaknesses are. They know how to get in his head, control him and coach him in the cage because they have done it many times before.
I expected for Brendon to destroy Demico and get out quick. But, Demico showed that he is a very talented and an over looked fighter. I didn’t expect Demico to do as well as he did, but in the end the coaches from Team Rampage screwed him up during the fight. That was a huge reason for his loss. Brendon also is a great fighter and took advantage of Demico’s mistakes and that’s what great fighters do. They find your mistakes and take advantage of them. They even admitted it after the fight. That’s why it was so huge for Brendon and James to come to the show with their coaches because they know them in every way that is important for a coach to know their fighter.
Rampage didn’t even show up with enough to help Demico warm up and I was glad that they showed how Rampage and their coaches really didn’t care about their fighters or the show. It was more to promote Rampage, and that sucks for everyone their team.
Rampage has a ton of talent on his team and it was a shame that they got stuck with a coach they didn’t care about them. I am not talking about all the coaches because Junior and British Tom tried but they are going to follow Rampages lead. Rampage didn’t even go to him after the fight he just sat outside of the cage and felt sorry for himself about how he must have the worst luck. Really? What a dick.
Rashad and our coaches came over and took care of him and that shows how much our coaches care about all the athletes on the show. The only thing that Rampage did right was admitting he coached Demico wrong but Rampage never admitted it to his own team and he needed too. After how he acted I think Rampages team finally felt like they didn’t have any support.
Next weeks episode is where all the Matt Mitrone drama and starts to show how Zach gets hazed constantly by his own team. It starts to get ugly in the house.
