Nice. Thanks for the heads up. Nice with that many contestants and just one division. I wonder how that long guy (Corey Hill?) will do.. he must be longer than most WWs...

Can't wait to see Robert on the show. Seen all his fights and hes really unlucky...he should of won against Mishima/Guillard and another guy in KOTC. Hes trained me alota times in MMA and hes one of the nicest guys. I really hope he wins.

Yeah , I almost think they made a mistake on the picure and that guy is a coach or something. I've never heard of him, but he lloks about 6 ft. 5. That would be one heck of a cut. That guys about as lean as Snake Diabate, and I( never thought to see someone that thin compete again. Von flue seems hefty by comparison and Groves actually looks thick next to him. That guy will have a sick reach advantage if he really is one of the fighter's

Corey Hill is 6'5" and a training partner of Noah Thomas.

I think Joe Lauzon takes it. I hope Pulver is his coach also.

for the list. Anyone know when the show starts airing? It's supposed to be soon, right?

Also any rumors on the contract? Is it just one? Dana's getting off easy this time is it's just one 3 year, 100,000 contract!

If I recall correctly, it was supposed to be some time in April.

And slap a sub on. Wow, look at Corey tower over those guys. It always amazes me when you get someone with that much of an advantage at 155. It's one thing when Tim comes into the ring with a lot more reach when you can be 206 to 265, but to be able to look that much bigger than all your peers is mind boggling.

I got high expectations for this season, and hope Joe takes it over Diaz in the final.

BJ Penn and Jens Pulver will fight at the end of the season. Wether or not it will be pay-per-view or UFN or perhaps some other broadcast is yet unknown.

Anyways, Corey Hill is an anomaly. I find it extremely hard to beleive that anyone who is 6'5", can cut to 155lbs and still be health.

I think we will have rival type teams here which is what made season 3 so great with Shammy and Tito. I hope Bj and Jens get into some heated fights ust to make the fight that much better.....Bj vs Jens is supposed to be on the Finale of this season,

Everyhting I've ever seen of BJ makes me think he's kind of cranky and competitive. So I think he will be picking fight's with Jen's the whole show. I have seen numerous interviews where he says that decision against Jens was a bad one. I think it's safe to say he still does and it will drive him throught the show. I think he's more likely than any coach including Shamrock to actually punch the opposing coach. Should be a goodie

It's only LW and if you actually read the posts you'd know who that lanky guy is.

how the **** is lanky dude a LW

How is Grove a MW? I remember watching him fight Herman and thinking they're both about the same thickness. Mind blowing... really going to be interesting to see how his reach will play into fights, gonna see a lot of one sided matches with him if people can't get to him.
Stickan

People talk about Diaz being tall in the LW division and having a big reach advantage and he's 6.0. If this guy Corey Hill is 6.5 he can't be more than skin and bones.
Looking forward to TUF 5.

With Joe Lauzon in there the winner of this season will come out as one of the 2 linnear UFC LW champs (the other one being Frankie Edgar, if you don't think a fight has to happen in the UFC to count for the championship).
