I already decided next year I'm picking FFL team members I don't like. Sorry Saunders! He seemed to have won the 3rd round though, unless you listen to that one judge.

The tipping point for me in betting on Hallman was a hunch. Back in the old days he had great technique but his gas tank was so awful. I mean he subbed Matt Hughes twice, but unfortunately tended to lose when it went to deep waters.

However, I read an interview a couple months back when he said he had finally identified a gluten allergy he'd had his whole life and after changing his diet, had much more energy. Guess maybe he was right! Saunders is no slouch in the cardio department.
