1st Place – Molly Helsel of NCFC, uncontested

no oppornents for the national team trial?
anyways wish ur luck in Switzerland in UsA team Next Dec.

Tara lost at 121 final… too much cutting weight? 135-121=14, maybe she walks around over 135
when she doesnt have fights, so must be more than 10% of weight cutting.

seeems final against Oh was very close though.

In a battle of returning World champions, Oh defeated Tara LaRosa of the Philadelphia Fight Factory in the finals, 4-3 in overtime. The score tied at 3-3 at the end of regulation. Oh scored the winning point on an escape when LaRosa had a lapse of judgement and let her go at the start of the overtime. Oh won her World title last year at 121 pounds, while LaRosa was a World champion at 136.5 pounds.

Lisa Ward won at 105.5, Miesha Tate is also 1st place at 158.5…

Miesha Tate of Victory Athletics claimed the 158.5-pound title, upsetting returning World champion Valerie Worthington of New Breed in the finals match, 4-2. Tate scored the opening takedown in the match, and was able to score a reversal later in the match for the margin of victory.
at men`s division 202.5, that Ian Murphy  who fought Jacare in Japan is 2nd place.

タナー自身の身内や実際の友人以外で、ブログを通してもっとも熱心に「エヴァン・タナー」をおっかけていたおばかブログfightlinker。

タナーのグダグダな酔っ払いブログに突っ込みを入れ、あんまり現実的とは思えない「チーム・タナー」のコンセプトに対して「うむ・・・。まあ画期的だしすごい考えだとは思うけど・・・いいからとりあえず黙ってスポンサーさがせよ」と正論を吐き(結局チーム・タナーと並行してTUFを放映してるSpikeTVからスポンサーになってもらえた)、練習で少し身体つきがもとにもどってきたら手放しで喜び、試合に負ければ悔しがり「風来坊なのはわかるけど、いいかげんひととこに腰おちつけていいトレーナーつけろよ」とまたも正論を吐きくさり、TUFフィナーレで復帰第二戦にまたも惜敗したタナーが「もうダメかも」と弱音を吐くとハラハラし、一端休養してまたあっちこっち旅にいくとなったら「うむ。クソ真面目に練習してるタナーはつまらんからな」とまったく逆のことを言い出し(笑)、なんだかんだとみんなでつっこんできた記録。・・・よう書いたなあ(爆)。

改装のときに過去のみんなのコメントきえちゃったのと、タナー自身の直のお仲間の判断か、サイトとSpikeTVのブログにあげられたタナーが撮影したアメリカの自然の写真や、長距離バスの運ちゃんが偶然タナーのファンでうれしそうに並んで撮った写真、そしてタナー自身の練習や飲んだくれによる(笑)身体の筋肉の変化とかを記録した写真がネットから消されてしまったのが残念。

Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower(Tanner used this Rock Classic for his entrance)

“There must be some way out of here,” said the joker to the thief,
“There’s too much confusion, I can’t get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.”

“No reason to get excited,” the thief, he kindly spoke,
“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late.”

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl

by Bob Dylan
