Its a shame Rob Sinclair didn't get the nod, here's hoping he knocks out Winner and the UFC then give him a fight on one of the undercards.

I think he will make his way there sooner rather than later

Agreed. If he beats Winner I can't see why he wouldn't be offered a contract.

I think Winner was going to be on his way to the big leagues anyway, so he'll make his way to the UFC the traditional route - earning respect through fighting. And they probably didn't want him on TUF as he would be a huge favorite amongst the no names.

EDIT: I'm a bit upset there are no New Zealand fighters chosen. I know its OZ vs UK, but we are like Australia's little brother, and we have great MMA talent, and this would have been a chance to showcase it on a huge stage.
