Just wondering why Pete Sell is still fighting in the UFC, he's 1-4 not to mention the ultimate fighter losses, any thoughts.

hes an exciting fighter, has put on a couple classics....young with lots of potential .....great hands and a good ground game....but i think if he wasnt moving down to ww for the next fight, he would be out...its make or break on this one

He's a good fighter, he's lost to good people in the UFC, I think the only reason he's back is the weight drop, it's pretty much a loser leaves town fight.

i agree with both the above posters, i havent seen the guy put on a snoozer, and the fact that hes fearless in there makes people want to see more of him.

quite simply, the UFC wants somebody for Burkman to bounce back against

he is a good fighter with horrible luck. he should have won against Quarry and Smith...but it wasn't in the cards. i personally love to watch him fight and i agree with what wiggum and Khaos said

Same here he is one entertaining fighter just unlucky, man that guys puts on nice fights just for that reason alone he is there probably that the weigh drop helped, man that guy was a big 185 imagine at 170, lol is he even able to do that

Duh, because UFC fans love hearing Matt Serra shout from the corner.

Well besides him being an entertaining fighter who is willing to engage in a slugfest for the fans he is also dropping weight which should be interesting.. not to mention the fact that he is still pretty young and has a potentially bright future in front of him..

If he does the same at WW though as he did at MW then I dont think he will be in the UFC for too long... we'll see what he can do.

This guy is so talented his future was so bright after he beat Baroni and then the guy hits some of the worst luck ever seen in the UFC. Right when you think he's gonna catch a break bam! someone takes the rug out from beneath him it seems. with that said.....

Idk about this move. In theory it should be great for Sell but he had cardio problems when he fought at MW so I don't think getting dehydrated to make weight it going to help those problems. Could be the best move of his career as he should be a big dude for WW but if this fight goes out of the first round I think he'll be in trouble and its not easy to finish Burkman but has shown a weakness to submissions in the past....

My prediction is Burkman by UD but I'll be pulling for Sell because I really want him to catch a break.

I couldn't have said it any better. Props.
I'm always down to watch a Pete Sell fight. He comes to fight and that's what it's all about. His battles with Quarry and Smith are classics.
