Go Wren! That's the kinda stuff you see in movies and documentaries, the world needs more people like that.

Dude grew up in the town I went to college too ... home town boy. If he ever comes back I know who I'm rootin for.

EDIT: nice articles I found about his story:

Efrain and Nover are probably the biggest two busts in my book so far. Hall doesn't seem to be panning out right now, but the hype train will be right back on track if he gets a win. I wouldn't call Mac Danzig a bust exactly, but I did think he was going to do much better.

Southworth wasn't overhyped. He was hyped about as much as he needed to be. He was a very competent fighter who went a long way but he was also already 35 when he was on TUF. Only so much room to improve at that age for most people.

He also did Joe Rogans podcast, where he talked about in depth.

I'll hunt out the link when I'm next on a computer.

I don't remember Justin Wren ever being hyped... But i think he should of been given another chance.
