Although they both lost their respective fights at the TUF 8 Finale, Dave Kaplan & George Roop will get a chance at redemption at UFC 98. The TUF 8 cast members will face each other on the May event's undercard.

Agree. But Kaplan should destroy Roop.

roop prolly has a solid reach on kaplan. It will prolly be a decision win for one of the guys that we dont have to see.

With all the lackluster performances that Kaplan has shown, I have to go with Roop on this one. Roop lost a decision and he fought injured on TUF. Perhaps there is something in Roop we haven't seen yet. Either way neither have shown that they belong in the UFC, perhaps Dana has decided to give them a make it or break it fight against eachother. Winner stays and loser gets cut. Who knows...

I hope Kaplan can reach my expectations with his entrance.

He set the bar pretty high last time out.

lol...I'm really surprised by this, can't they find better matchups with 2nd tier TUFers?

Roop 2nd round TKO.

i actually really like kaplan. seems like a cool dude (even though he, for some reason, cant handle eating sushi with love sauce on it )

but yeah, i dont think either need to be in the UFC. they're mediocre WEC talent at best

I really have no interest in watching Roop UD "Diamond" Dave Kaplan. If Kap is lucky his embaressment will end after this fight.
