    George saw that first round 10-9 Alloway.
    Ross saw it 10-9 Petrescu.

    Which way did you fine people have it?

    I gave it 10-9 Petrescu as he outstruck Alloway for the first 3:10 ish of the first round.

    Got taken down but reguarded and then attacked with an armbar. Got his back taken and finished in a bad position and shipped a few shots but not enough to lose the round on my card.

    I saw the first round for Petrescu. If he has just closed his guard and remained on bottom for the round I would have scored it for Alloway, but the armbar attempt, coupled with the dominance in the stand up, was enough to sway me to Petrescu. Think it was quite a clear round, don't think Sotiropoulos was being genuine

    Petrescue should of uncrossed his legs during the armbar, he may have got the tap!

    Gotta agree with this, although I think Fletcher is legit and a far more interesting character than the usual contrived wacky/extreme/mohawk goons that infest this show.

I was cringing when after they showed Team Australia having a sensible first training session, and then went to Team UK knocking ten bells out of each other day one. Really bad. And shock horror, this ridiculous approach to training led to an injury!
    Agree with this too. And I'm sorry, but having Amasinger as your main assistant coach is a very poor choice imo.

    I think that's all it's been about all along. There's a huge ufc promotion drive going on here in oz at the moment, ads all over the tele about 'big things coming' 'ufc is here' etc. this series is being very heavily promoted and JDS/dana and cos are in oz travelling and promoting the last few weeks. It certainly seems to have been geared entirely towards being a marketing tool. noone outside of the uk or oz will watch this show and i doubt anyone on it will go on to have a big impact.
    the level of mma here in oz is much lower than the uk but i think the popularity of the ufc is much bigger than it is back in england (in london at least). there's a big market here they're now really trying to tap into.
