his failure to make weight solidifies my pick in The Athlete. Gouveia just never lives up to his potential.

Browning looked like crap on the show. I hope this is either a one time deal or he's made some significant improvements

Gouviea better win with that extra baggage.

roop and john need to drop to 145 if they are coming in that under.

Anyone else thing Gouivea is gone with from the UFC with a loss here? It was proabably Do or Die for him anyways but with no making weight and most likely getting Subbed by Athlete, his days are numbered.

damn..now I am having second thoughts...scratch that...third thoughts on the Jmac vs Gouevia fight...

Denis Kang just said that Gouevia is either the 1st or 2nd hardest puncher he's ever fought/sparred with in his life...

I thought junie was an embarassment to the sport with how he acted in the house, and especially on the interview floating around the net when he was still allan browning. With that said, nobody has ever questioned his talent, and people will argue that dana white kept him on the show for ratings, but I think there was truth in what he was saying in the last episode. Junie is a head case, and has some serious mental issues. Everyone talks about how their upbringing was so tough... everyone knows huerta's story, tito had dope feinds for parents, but seeing how junie acted in the house.. i'm thinkin trailor park boys mixed in with cops, mixed in with some ****** up shit that even hbo wouldnt touch.

In most cases, that kinda ***** you for life... but fighting can be a real outlet for that aggression, and give ur life a focus/purpose. If you can find a way to dedicate your life to doing it (career) then you have a chance of sorting urself out. Junie screwed up that chance on the show.. I think it had a lot to do with the environment of the house... someone that mentally unstable will not survive that house, but I think it had a lot to do with the fact that he was unsupervised for the most part

Shawn Tompkins is a person who's opinion and character is not to be taken lightly... and if he's saying that junie is like a son to him, and that this kid is busting his ass off at xtreme couture... the doode has my vote. If he went back to butfuck-nowhere and kept doin what he was doing, then i'd wonder why he's even on the card, but training at xtreme couture and impressing the people there is worth huge points

Junie 2nd rd tko, MacDonald 2nd rd sub

yeah theres 3 fights on the undercard I'd rather see than the junie fight(krystoff,eliot and kyle)
but hopefully they show em all or most of them. Afterall its 3 hours and theres no fight for the troops stuff so....they're going to have to fill the time somehow and I see alot, ALOT of 1st rd finishes so....

my picks I'm going with Efran, Vinny(who looked huge), Jason Macdonald, Anthoney Johnson, and unfortunatly junie

It's 'his second fight at MW and he is 1-0 there in the UFC.

He has no chance of being cut with a loss here IMO.

Is that Dustin Diamond?

Looks like celebrity fit camp paid off for him

But I still don't see how you go from beating up Horshack in a boxing match to the UFC.
