Hes got a lot of potential for sure. I just hope the ufc sends him to the wec or lets him build experience else where before signing him, becouse at this point hed get beat by most of the mw's in the ufc and it wouldnt be very good for his career if he ends up going 0-3 or whatever in the ufc, then gets shown the door.

Im a little disapointed he got eliminated so early, i can see why some people would hate the guy but i like his attitude and general outlook, he just seems like a happy person.

He'll compete in prelims against cans untill the UFC decides he's ready for a real challenge. I have no problem with this strategy as it keeps their TUF fighters under contract and allows them to develop simultaneously. I think we will be hearing from this kid for real in about 3 years.

tough kid, mean hands, F-ing MEAN! a few punches in that last fight did not look solid and almost knocked Tim out.

THAT SAID. I freakin' hate this kid. i hate that he is a momma's boy, NEVER HAD A JOB, 22, NEVER HAD A JOB. I could be a fighter if I didn't have to go to school and have a job with bills. Maybe I wouldn't win, but I coulda been a contender.

Every word out this kids mouth is like nails on a chalk board.

I hope now that his fight is over the camera stops following him.

Hate is not a word strong enough.
