Second Semifinal Recap

Carrying right over from the last episode, no time is wasted before we get into the fights. Vinny Magalhaes and Krzysztof Soszynski put in their two cents and head for the cage.

Vinny is playing off the confident -if not cocky- roll here, but I'm not sure I buy it. I have to give him a little leeway on the language barrier, but he seems to be stuttering a little and it just sounds like he's trying to convince himself more than anyone else. But hey, I'm no psychologist.

On the other hand, Krzysztof doesn't exactly come off as timid. "This is my wife, this is my son," he said, signaling towards his fists, "and I'm going put them right through his face." That's an interesting way to put it, but I get the gist: Krzysztof is ready to fight.

The bell rings and the action kicks off quickly, with Krzysztof taking control of the standup game but he can only hold off Vinny's jiu jitsu for about four minutes and gets subbed with an armbar at about 1:15 of the first round and Vinny explodes into a screaming rage. Click here for the full fight recap.

He didn't land the six figures, but Krzysztof is a seasoned and talented fighter so don't be too surprised to see him back in the Octagon before long.

In Vinny's post-fight interview outside the gym, he explains how great of a win this was for him. He still seems nervous though. I guess that's just how he talks. I should keep my day job, because I clearly won't make it as a psychologist.

On to the second fight: Junie vs. Escudero. Junie's first order of business seems to be making up excuses for why he might lose. I'm going to take one more crack at my skills as a doctor. I don't think Junie feels good about this fight. In fact, it seems as though Junie may have already lost. He goes as far as to tell Frank Mir that he wants to forfeit.
