I am leaning towards Downes right now. Good fight for both of them.

I used to believe that Danny Downes was secretly 16 years old fighting underage like Horodecki did, but he took that beating from Stephens like a man.

I will be pulling for Downes in this one. Nijem seemed like a cool dude, but I wouldn't want to hang around with his male stripper ass. I just was not impressed by anyone on this season of TUF, Feguson, Nijem or otherwise. The most impressive thing I saw that season was Harvison (I believe?) fighting with that finger break. Or was it dislocated? Either way, it was pretty ghastly.

In my opinion, Zuffa is being very generous letting so many who fell short on that season compete in the Octagon.

Yeah, I thought he looked like a teenager against Horodecki. But he looks like he gained some muscle since then and seems to be getting better. I'm pulling for Danny Boy to win.

I also thought it was an odd coincidence that they both looked underage and Horodecki actually did fight underage. I remember watching him in the IFL thinking the same thing "why are they letting this youngfella fight this man"

i think people look down on a lot of TUF contestants.. they're viewed as newcomers. while they are in need of polishing.. don't underestimate them.. i think Tony Ferg can be a force to be reckoned with if he drops to 155, or bulks up at 170
