Roop is so hit or miss. He can be on and look great, or off and real bad. He needs to be more consistent. If he loses, I bet he gets the pink slip

I was so disappointed with Carvalho's debut. I had been waiting years to see him in the UFC then he falls apart in the last two rounds of the fight. I'm going to go with Roop here. He's inconsistent but he's been in there with some tough competition.
