So, TUF: China seems like it’s a must-watch solely because of the fact that a yoga instructor made the house. Yes, a yoga instructor, from what I understand , has no real martial arts training. I guess the real fighters in the house didn’t take kindly to this yoga guy sneaking in, so they put him through the ringer. What that entails, I don’t know, but Cung Le teased it pretty well:
“I’m not sure how many of you have seen the show, but some yoga instructor got through,” Le said. “That was not the UFC’s doing. I believe that was part of the TV show – he was from the hometown – and somehow that guy snuck under the radar.
“That was a decision I had to make. If you haven’t watched it, I won’t ruin it, but one of the coaches had to go and put a little hurt on him and let him feel what punches with four-ounce gloves feel like it.”
Damn, now I’m going to have to watch TUF China.
