Sorry if this thread exists already, but I haven't seen one and want to discuss this...
Did anyone see TapOut (the tv show)? My mate sent me season 1 episode 1 and it was quite cool. It's a reality show that follows the guys from TapOut clothing brand as they sponsor a fighter and take him to his first fight.
1 - Presumably this is shown on TV in the US, does anyone know how popular it is? Is it on a free TV station or a paid one (like sky or cable)?
2 - The guys seemed like pretty nice guys actually, friendly and approachable. They seem down-to-earth like you and I, just some guys who started a business. What are other peoples' thoughts on these guys?
3 - Half way through the show, the main guy "Mask" got a call from Matt Serra who told them to pay him more money to wear TapOut clothes for his (then) upcoming fight with GSP, otherwise he'd go to another clothing company. I thought this was a bit sad, TapOut sponsoring him through his hard times, but then there's no loyalty when he's up?
4 - The fight was MEAN - that arm was properly broken but the guy just kept fighting, and then a massive elbow KO from the mount. Ref should have stopped it after that armbar for sure. What are your thoughts?
