a rare weems sighting, the mma board equivalent of the dodo to birdwatchers
Ya know, it was Weems that really helped me prove a point to my wife about how good the UFC is about making a matchup look so even. My wife always has a hard time making her picks on here when she watches the Countdown shows. I had tried explaining to her that it's beneficial for the UFC to make a match look so damn even. When Weems was on the show, it was pretty obvious that he'd bitten off more than he could chew just by showing up...even the coaches were laughing at him. Until of coarse the episode where he's gonna fight. They had the coach saying how he's really turned his training around (really? he's now a beast after only a couple of days?). The kicker was when Gray looked into the camera and made some statement about having to take Weems seriously (or something like that)...to this day, I truly believe that they cut the part out of the interview where Gray bends over in laughter after saying that. Anywho, that's what I always think of when I hear Weems' name.
