Scott Junk (6-2-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) doesn't exactly fit the stereotype for the house on "The Ultimate Fighter 10."

"I'm simple – just a normal everyday working guy," Junk said. "These guys are ex-football players and young guys who are spoiled who don't have jobs. They're complaining about things that I thought were luxuries."

That's because Junk doesn't have the traditional mixed-martial-arts pedigree. A Hawaiian who fell into MMA after an All-American Division II college football career and who later gained his full-time job in sewage line construction, Junk is also unique because of his UFC background.

So that is what happened to the guy with the worst real name in UFC history.

I'm a little confused how they can take guys that already have UFC fights and put them on the Ultimate Fighter. I mean, I know guys like Roy Nelson and even Kimbo have had big fights outside the organization but at least they haven't actually fought in the UFC. I mean Wes Sims? The guy is famous for stomping Frank Mir in a UFC fight. I don't know maybe I'm just an asshole.
