Magakian gets a little crazy

October 07, 2010|By Grant Gordon

GLENDALE - [UPDATED: 9:03 p.m.] With 14 fighters couped up in one house with little to do to amuse themselves and keep hold of their sanity, it's perhaps a bit understandable that just about every season of "The Ultimate Fighter" features an in-house confrontation or two.

On the fourth episode of the Spike TV broadcast on Wednesday night, it was Glendale's own Sevak Magakian that was the first to lose his temper.

In an altercation long having been built up in proceeding episodes' previews, Magakian finally had enough when it came to Alex "Bruce Leroy" Caceres. After the two exchanged insults with Caceres basically challenging Magakian's manhood with language not fit for print, the Team Hayastan and Glendale Fighting Club-trained fighter tossed a napkin at Caceres and then ran around two tables and charged him before teammates got in front of him and steered him into an adjacent room.


"I don't know if people love me or hate me, but I was trying to do the right thing," said Magakian of the confrontation, maintaining his view that Caceres was disrespectful throughout.

In the previous week's episode, Magakian - and many of the other cast members - took exception to Caceres' boasts after his victory over Jeffrey Lentz. After Michael Johnson, a member of Georges St. Pierre's team along with Caceres, defeated Aaron Wilkinson, in the second fight of the show, Magakian also took exception to Caceres' words from outside the octagon during the fight. 

"Bruce Leroy, he was just jumping on his seat, just [yelling] [expletive deleted] him up, [expletive deleted] him up," Magakian said in a confessional while highlights of Johnson's fight were shown. "That's not the right thing, man."

The episode then shifted to Magakian, fellow Glendale fighter Sako Chivichyan and the rest of Team Koscheck going through a torrid practice under Coach Josh Koscheck.

"C'mon Sevak, you crazy Armenian," Koscheck yelled during the segment.

"I love training man," Magakian said in a confessional. "He beats the [expletive deleted] out of us, man, I like it, man. That's what I need right now."

Chivichyan then chimed in in a confessional.

"After losing two in a row, myself and all the other guys, we're all pumped up," Chivichyan said. "Everybody wants to get in there. Everybody wants to battle. We gave them a head start, but I think we're gonna come with the big finish."
