Hopefully Kendall Grove didn't need any more pressure going into UFC 96 Saturday, because he just got it. Dana White told USA Today yesterday that the Grove-Jason Day loser Saturday night is out of UFC, meaning Grove could be the first TUF winner to ever be cut by UFC.

Well then if I picked the winner correctly, Grove is done for.

Poor Kendall. I always thought he showed promise, he just never put it together.

He certainly had the height going for him (kinda like Corey Hill) but it seemed he never could use it to his fullest extent. I don't want to see him lose and get cut but I too am picking against him.

Kendall has been a dissapoinment. I had a lot of expectatiosn for him, but he hasnt stringed together a good amount of wins. I think he will beat Day, however, he now knows that every fight in the UFC from here on out could be his last.

Actually, Kendall won't be the first TUF winner to be cut if he loses...because if I recall correctly, Travis Lutter won TUF 4 at 185 and he got cut....

not that that has anything to do with this really, but I thought it was worth mentioning...

Exactly. I don't classify any of the guys who were on the comeback show as ultimate fighters, because they were all in the UFC already before being on the show. It's not like guys like Griffin or Diego.

is it just because of the long lay off?
grove's last fight was fine. tanner didn't look great, but a win is a win.

how many wins does he have to get before he is safe......

I'd say 2. He's at 3-2 in UFC right now so a loss would put him at 3-3.

I haven't liked Kendall since my wife mentioned she thought he was cute during his Tuff season. I hope Day at least uglies him up a bit.
