The UFC has officially released the names of the 16 heavyweights who will participate in Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, and, of course, Kimbo Slice is the star. But the guy I'm most curious about is James McSweeney.

McSweeney, in case you haven't heard of him, is a former professional kickboxer who trains with Greg Jackson at one of the world's best MMA gyms.

You *do* realize that this is a News forum, right? News items are posted here. I didn't post this as my own personal opinion.

But to answer your question...no, I don't believe I have, although the name sounds familiar to me.

I can't find it anywhere but if you can find it, then McSweeney vs. Grove sums up McSweeney nicely.

He's awful.

He was in our Secondary League picks against Al Turk last year on a CR card, and he was TKO'd in 2 minutes. That's probably why it sounds familiar.

I've seen 2 of his fights, both losses. But I'm assuming that if he's been extensively training with Team Jackson he's gotta be better, but still, not even almost the guy to "watch" for this season as that blogger thinks.

He has been training at Jackson's for quite a long time now and he certainly hasn't improved at all, his last 2 fights were embarrassing to MMA.

Mcsweeney fought in the middle of April and he was terrible then and I'm guessing he's still terrible. This blogger must be related to him or something.

This is why White introduced TUF series in the first place. You'll never see a level A fighter on the show, it's what it's for, development.

TUF is for up-coming exciting fighters.

McSweeney's fights are never fun to watch (not an opinion, it's actually a fact if you watch them) and he has poor skills (again, if you've seen any of his fights you will know that's a fact.) His cardio is also absolutely shockingly bad.

McSweeney has no place on TUF.
