This was the best reality show I've ever seen. All of these contestants were stand-up guys fighting for a better life for themselves and their families. They fought wars and handled themselves with pride and dignity regardless of the outcome. It was heartbreaking to hear these proud warriors after their defeats get reduced to tears as they lamented the lost opportunity. Every single fighter described their bitter disappointment in terms of the impact it would have on their families, this while they carried the bruises, cuts and pain of having just laid everything out on the line for their opportunity. This show was really well produced and edited, Slyvester Stallone and Sugar Ray Leonard were real highlights and they were the perfect hosts for this show.
