Without rumours etc the ones to watch (not in an entertaining way, as in successful) are:

Nik Fetete
Jimmy Quinlan
Robert McDaniel
Uriah Halls
Zak Cummings

My Dark Horses would be
Tor Treong
Gilbert Smith
Mike Jasper

But Tor "might" be the guy who wins the show... Again I'm only going off research.

Cummings made quick work of Fekete. Really excited for his chance to make some waves on this show.

TheBudCan vs Tattflash

Bring it home for Sonnen tattflash!

Could not be happier about Tor being on Team Sonnen, I don't think I could support anyone on Team Jones as much

That was a great way to start off the season. There were a lot of guys that looked impressive. Chael was funny, Dana wasn't too annoying, the fights were good (From what we saw that is...) and my fighter made it through. I'm excited for the rest of the season and that's an improvement from last season.

Uriah Hall looked awesome. I'm glad they showed most of that fight. He looked well rounded with some very accurate striking. He's also on Team Sonnen

The next fight should be good. The wrestler vs. the really tall dude. I think Jones might take the W. Sonnen's guy could definitely take it late though. He has the better cardio.

The kid I picked put up a great fight, but he ran into a buzzsaw in Hall. Hall, Hester, Cummings looked the best to me. "The Dick" is my darkhorse.

Ya he does

Another fighter who really impressed me was Uriah Hall. Has great stand up and an ample ground game and took on a really tough guy. I also think Thor and Barnatt could go far.

What do they all have in common? They are all Team Sonnen He has the much stronger team imo.

I also think Jones made a mistake with the first match up. Pitting the smallest guy with the worst cardio against the tallest guy with the best cardio?

Basing it off who I gather the better chance:

D Andrews 60% vs Williams 35-45% Correct
Kito Andrews 45-49% vs Gastelum 50-55% Correct
Barnatt 20-30% vs Kohring 55-65% Wrong
Bercier 50-55% vs Samman 66% Correct
Bigler 50-55% vs McDaniels 85-90% Correct
Casey 66% vs Sproat 40-49% Correct
Cella 15-25% vs Heun 30-40% Wrong
Cummings 80-85% vs Fekete 85% Close but Wrong
Enz 35-40% vs Hall 75-80% Correct
Hart 50-60% vs Jasper 55-65% Close but Wrong
Opie 10-20% vs Hester 40-50% Correct
Quinlan 65-70% vs Persons 10-20% Correct
Smith 70-75% vs Wahlin 25-35% Correct
Troeng 70-85% vs Rosa 30-45% Correct

10 Correct
4 Wrong

2 of the 4 wrong, one was 50-60 v 55-65, the other 80-85 v 85.

Feel I did quite well!

I don't know what the hell people are seeing in Luke Barnatt.. I'll be rooting for him as he's Team Sonnen but it was a weird first pick!

Agree & SUPER agree!
Team Sonnen has next weeks fight in the bag.
I think I'd be rooting for Sonnens team even if my fighter wasn't on it. Its just better. & I actually found myself liking Sonnen in the episode! He came in & started chatting up Bones like they were good pals while Bones was trying too hard to play it cool. What I really enjoyed was the overall feel of the episode. Maybe it was just my new super high-def flatscreen but the show felt very polished & professional this time around. I loved how they showed the fighters before & after there fights. It almost had a documentary feel to it.
