I just finished watching UFC 86. Man that was an exciting title fight! It felt like either Forrest or Rampage could win at any time. I was putting my hands up guarding the punches all the time
I haven’t written anything about this season’s The Ultimate Fighter, but it’s not because I haven’t been watching it. I thought this season was great when they had twice the contenders and eliminated half in the first episode. They’re keeping that formula for next season which starts in September I think.
I read the copyright notice at the end of the broadcast and it states that along with “UFC” and “The Ultimate Fighter”, Zuffa also owns the trademarks “The Octagon” and “Submission”. I can buy that using “The Octagon” in the context of MMA could be a valid trademark, but submission? Why not register punch and kick as trademarks too?
