    This was a great episode. I thought that it was very interesting and fun to watch. The thing that really stood out was the combat fight at the end. Another thing that was nice to watch was the weapons debate. I thought that the organic weapons wouldn't stand a chance against the steel weapons and I was right. I know for a fact that it was right. The one thing I didn't like was the rival factor. It seemed a bit forced and it also seemed fake. Overall, a great episode that was very entertaining. I was very much interested. Thank you.moreless

    This episode of deadliest warrior is getting back to the basics of pre gun battles where it tests teqhnique with hand to hand weapons instead of who can fire the most accurate and powerful weapon. I knew that the monk would win because almost all the time skill beats brute force, just like in the apache vs the gladiator. If brute force would be the deciding factor then the gladitor would have won, and so would the Maori Warrior. The Maori Warrior's weapons were far superior with the amount of force but the monks technique and wuickness prevailed, also steel weapons helped.moreless
