TUF 6 competitor Ben Saunders, who lost to Tommy Speer on the show, is lobbying for a rematch. He's claiming his medical issues played a huge role in his losing the fight and feels he deserves a rematch, and is now trying to drum up support online.

wah wah wah, i hate it when fighters throw out excuses, he got beat and i dont think his sickness had much to do with tommy laying on him, he didnt have a problem nearly catching him in subs.

Yeah he should be more focused on Dan because as I saw in the last fight Dan dropped him a few times. Don't look past Dan or your going to end up getting KO'd viciously...

Dan landed one good punch, and as soon as Ben hit the ground, he almost caught him in a triangle (and was smiling, with a busted up nose). But yeah, I agree that he shouldn't blame him being sick, even though that would suck. He needs to get stronger, so he can make those subs count, especially when he has them locked in like he did on Speer.

I'd love to see this. And I'd love to see Tommy drive Saunders' face thru the friggin' mat, too.

Not so sure he can do this, he needs to work on more than just strength, and lay and pray.

Come on we all got to see Tommy knock that smile off Ben's face. I was sick I didn't feel good wah wah. Excuses is all. One of these days they might meet again and I see a new outcome. Tommy knocking Ben out cold.

Nah, I think the rematch would be much more competitive. It was clear that Saunders gassed after throwing those (VERY CLOSE) sub attempts and I have no doubt the fact that HE COULDN'T BREATHE killed his cardio.

Speer is just a LnPer - couldn't even pass his guard. He'll get choked out next time.

Tommy is a brute force who have not been developped yet, so with 6 months will a real training camp i think he will simply destroy Ben easely !!

while i agree i think ben could be a great fighter as well, i would love to see these two go at it about a year from now when they both have had a lot of time to fine tune their game, it will probably be another good fight and a much better fight.

I actually totally 100% disagree with you on this man. Ben with the right trainer and team for him will be a force to reckon with in the UFC. yeah ok he got beat on TUF but you know what, to many aspects of his game were missing, wasent feeling good and shit so yeah. I SAY NO TO SPEER SIMPLY DESTROYING BEN. Not saying Ben is gonna win easily, not even saying is gonna win, but he def. wont get f*cking destroyed that is for DAMN sure

I wanna see Tommy Speer fight like I want water in my lungs. If I wanted to watch someone lay down I'd just videotape myself sleep. Have Speer fight Koscheck next in the "bathroom break" fight of the night.
