At least he's out there chasing his dream. How many people can say that? I really dislike all the hate attributed to not so athletic/"great" fighters like Bowman who people poke fun at.

Dude's trying to follow his dream and make it clearly he's training hard so if he's following his dream who the heck is anyone to poke fun at a kid for trying? Pretty lame imo.

It's nice to see he's still going for it, I didn't really like how they didn't bring him in(like they didn't bring Weems in for season five's finale), I know some people will be like they don't deserve to be on a "real" UFC card, but then why does/did 0-0(0-1) Cale Yarbrough deserve/get a fight.

Anyway, I hope Bowman keeps winning and gets in the UFC eventually.

Blake is a good guy who posts regularly on some other MMA websites.


He had several amateur fights (mostly wins) prior to getting on the show but he admits that he had never been training full-time prior to the ultimate fighter. He said his body never adjusted to daily training and that he was always beat up and injured but it wasn't an environment where you can take time off. Coming into the show his strength was his jiu-jitsu and so having a couple of exchanges on the feet, blowing out a knee and then getting KOd was really showing him at his worst.

Now he is training full time (just moved from Atlanta to Florida I believe for that reason) and he's done well in his pro fights so far. I don't think he's done enough good or bad to say how far he'll get except that he will be a better fighter than he showed during the Ultimate Fighter show.

Wayne Weems would wipe the floor with you. I would actually pay $1 to see it just to shut people like you up.
