The guy with the tats is Demarques Johnson, he is the guy that I have been saying to watch. He trains with Jeremy Horn, in Utah. He has a legit chance to win this. I have had him under my favorite fighters since I have been on here.

i wasent impressed much by the USA team, the only one who kind of impressed me was the dude who fought last, that dude had some pretty brutal ground and pound but also needs a lil work, he also reminded me of cory hill a lil. Im not being biased here but i think the USA team is gunna get there ass handed to them on a plate

Does anyone else think that Dana may have picked the people for the show so that the UK team would be stronger than the USA team? I get the impression that the UFC is super excited by the MMA explosion in the UK and a successful showing by the UK team would go a long way toward cementing the fan base in that market.

Maybe I'm giving Dana more strategic credit than he deserves...

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the US team was made a little weak on purpose. The UFC saw how much Bisping help them in the UK so I could see them doing that again. Just like how Bisping won the decision against Hammil even though most people (at least the ones I've seen give a opinion) said he should of lost.

shawn white and demarques johnson did pretty good but the rest were meh. that flying knee that defranco guy threw was pretty sick as well. hopefully, the last two to get into the house will be beastly otherwise the u.s. team might get beat somethin fierce.

I don't think Dana would deliberately make the US team weaker. The UFC is a bussiness, they're not going to pass up the opportunity to bring through the next american star just to make the uk look good (and maybe break into the uk market). Yeah they want to expand in the UK, but there still looking to bring in new supporters in US as well.

reality shows being what they are I will not be surprised by anything that happens.

The noticeable difference The UK fighters looked like they where ready willing and able. US fighters not so much and many had ship eating grins as if they got a free pass.

And to top this all of Juni Brownings brother is on the show lets all sit back and watch a train wreck

Entertainment values the house will get wrecked, fighting and arguing will happen in the house and the actual work outs and training will be a small part of the program

If there is one thing upon this earth that mankind love
and admire better than another, it is a brave man, it is
the man who dares to look the devil in the face and tell
him he is a devil. James A. Garfeild

I was not impressed with USA at all, but I wasn't impressed too much by the UK either. The UK team seems to be a little more focused and hungry, but theres not a lot of guys on there that stand out as being good.

Of course Dana made the USA team worse! In reality, nobody can beat the US.... THESE COLORS DON'T RUN BABY!

P.S. - oh and he started in the most ghetto gym imaginable- we dont even have a boxing gym in Sitka and we had to set up mats in the raquetball courts in our local gym and train there, just to let anyone know who think they are limited because there may not be a huge training center with a big name fighter in it, youre not. Where theres a will, theres a way.
