That's odd the UFC agreed to the catch weight, they tend not to do those unless it's a main attraction. They Usually make fighters make weight, oh well interesting fight good replacement just missed out on being on TUF couple years back.

He fought in the elimination round was dominating Joe Hennle and in the late 2nd round he got caught in a arm bar and tapped. He was a heavy favorite going in, Sure his impressive performance over all led him back to the ufc along with his team mates Chris Weidman's success and being a local fighter.

Losing to joe henle is not saying much.
If henle can catch him in a sub so can catone
