Guess he realized he wouldn't make it too far at WW. Too many wrestlers that can handle his takedowns and pressure.

The only solace I can find is that Colton Smith is going to get ktfo as soon as he faces some top comp

I bet he won't even beat top 20 competition. He and Mike Ricci both shit the bed like none other last night. Terrible.fight, terrible season. TUF needs to stick to other countries, or sub-155lb divisions if it wants to procure any decent talent anymore.

Smart move. I just hope he buys some fight shorts for his next bout.

Those grey boxers make me vomit.......

That's funny. We were talking about that last night during the fight. My girlfriend was like what the hell is he wearing. The same shorts he always wears.

i like this idea. he could do really well at LW. he's got good pressure and good wrestling but the savages at WW i think are just to much for him, he is far from a big WW anyway.

I think they've pretty much exhausted some of the weight classes unsigned talent.

They've done 8 seasons at WW, 7 at MW (after next season), 6 at lightweight and only 8 seasons at all the other weights combined.

Maybe a Women's edition will bring back the excitement.

If he wants to move to lw then let him fight Abel trujilo or tiger khabilov.
