Love that Pygmy loving beard.

Good post, my comment on your list:

Some of these guys had no hype with me or anyone imo.

Tommy Spear is a good name on the list though. He is a bigger bust then Hall I'd say. Other then being an idiot and costing himself the TUF title, I don't see how Taylor is a bust really. He's better then at least half the MWs in UFC today and since his blackballing has had decent success around the world against good competition.

I think a lot of guys get unfairly labeled busts because people are duped into buying unwarranted hype instead of letting guys progression come to them naturally for analysis.

But was Tommy Speer "hyped" that much? Maybe by Matt Hughes on the TUF6 show, but after that I don't know if he really was.

That was just awesome. Watched the whole thing in one go, couldn't go to sleep without finishing it. Dude has a soul of gold, and it's all the more inspiring considering where he was before. I feel almost selfish hoping he comes back to MMA someday so I can really get behind rooting for that guy.

Maybe then he can fulfill that potential I was talking about.

Indeed, I would hope so. To think he took Roy to a controversial MD while he was actively drugged out and a complete trainwreck, I think sobered up and on the right track the guy has all the potential in the world.

He was drugged up during TUF?

That's what he says. Hopped up on Oxycontin and painkillers... apparently at the time they didn't test everyone on TUF, only the finalists.

That wasn't that long ago so that's kind of surprising.

It's because the fights on TUF except for the finals are considered unsanctioned "training" fights legally. That's why they don't show up on their pro records either, because no commissions were involved.

Not exactly. TUF fights are considered "exhibition bouts", which don't count on pro records because they don't strictly adhere to the standard commission regulations, e.g. TUF fights being only two rounds unless the first two rounds result in a tie. However, they are sanctioned by the NSAC like any other bout in Nevada which is why they use commission judges, refs, and Kizer shows up on TUF regularly as commissioner and has even denied some fighters their fight for safety reasons (Jason Guida, for example, for cutting too much weight).
