So even though I've been following this season of The Ultimate Fighter since it started, there just hasn't really been too much to talk about. Sure, there have been some interesting moments, but nothing has really grabbed me. Until now that is. With the arrival of the quarterfinals, it looks like things are finally about to get good.

It's been over a week since our last blog post and we've been kicking ourselves all day for it. Get it? Kicking? ...Martial arts? Man, I'm rusty.
At any rate, we wanted to make a peace offering for being so neglectful of you, our loyal audience. What's that you ask? Does our offering come in the form of riches? Sort of... Especially if you measure wealth in the internet currency of embedded video featuring live-action webisodes based on hyper-violent, ultra-popular fighting games.
In that case, I have made you a very, very wealthy man (or woman). Whatever. You may thank me at your leisure. Enjoy the show!

On Tuesday, Mortal Kombat fans around the internet were given a new Legacy episode chock full of Johnny Cage drama. Taking an interesting 'reality television' approach to most of the short narrative, it did a decent job of setting up the events leading to Johnny Cage's entry into that all-too-famous of martial arts tournaments. It was dramatic, it was filled with punches to the groin, it was ...censored?
I know, I can't really explain it myself. Why would one bother censoring a webseries based on a game whose livelihood has come from excessive, over-the-top violence? Whatever, the naughty version filled with potty-mouths is below.
WARNING: This version of Episode 3 is full of foul language that younger kids may not be allowed to hear. So ask your parents. You should probably ask your parents anyway, regardless of your age. Just to see the look on their faces.
