after the warning junie got from dana and the way he acted after the efrain/shane fight i seriously doubt he will be left on the show

-broke a glass on someone
-pushed multiple people
-pulled a guy into the pool with him
-jumps into the ring after someone wins a fight
-disrespecting nog and mir who are both predominately ground fighters by calling ground fighters boring bitches


If he dosent get kicked off then dana must be desperate for ratings cause he knows junie will not stop acting like a jackass

after all that though i think junie would beat efrain in a fight but i picked efrain by submission(Wishfull thinking)

I really wasn't impressed with Efrain last fight. He had absolutely no punching power and very little head movement. Everytime he threw a jab and tied to work his way inside he would duck down to the side and expose himself to knees and kicks. He just didn't seem to have any explosiveness, even regarding takedowns.

If Junie can keep it together I think his tenacity will be too much for Efrain, and he'll expose Efrain when he dips his head down to the side in the clinch.

I originally picked Efrain to win the show, but with his last showing I'm not so certain. WTF was with his standup? His chin was in outer space and he kept ducking down right in line for a low kick to the dome. That spells serious trouble.

On the same token I wonder if he was just so unorthodox(/crappy) with his striking because he was facing a southpaw. Sometimes that throws guys off big time.

I think when we see a fighter push him more he'll show his true colors, and a fight against Junie spells just that. I just hope he looks about a million times better on the feet.

i was thinking the exact same thing. his hands were so low and his head movement that he was doing, while effective against Shane, would have resulted in him getting KOed by anyone with any striking experience. he looked very lackluster to me because i had such very high expectations of him. i am also questioning my pick of him winning the show and i am with you in crossing my fingers hoping he improves.

Looking at Junie's fight stats he's unexperienced, and judgeing from just one fight, all he does is brawl. Efrain by whatever he wants.

normally id tend to agree with you, but efrains stand up looked so poor against nelson that id have a really tough time picking him against junie unfortunately.

Junie strikes me as the kind of guy that would try to take the fight to wherever his opponent is best, to try and show him up. If he tries to take it to the ground with Efrain he'll be in trouble. But if he keeps it standing it'll probably results in a KO.
I still think that he'd try to take it to the ground with Efrain to try to prove a point, and he'll get submitted.

I hope Efrain wins if this happens. Junie has been hyped up big time by TUF coaches/fighters as to his skills.
