I know.

But Roy despite the fact he's an idiot, and a goofball he's tough as nails, he's got power and he's not bad on the ground, I'd certainly place him above Kongo. Mitrione's in his mid-thirties so I don't see him making a serious run and he's looked good against low level guys, when he stepped up to fight Kongo he got beat up and I imagine Roy will beat him up also. I think he's better in every area.

Would love to see Matt pull this off but i'm guessing it's his head that's receiving that part.

I donít think there is any hype on meathead. (maybe a little from me) Either you like him or you donít. I like him a lot. Mostly from his personality on the MMA hour but also because of the poise and comfort in the cage heís shown from the beginning of his career. I donít think thereís anyone anywhere that thinks Matt is the next champ but considering heís just 6 fights away from getting choked by Mcsweeny, I think heís done well. Roy is a big challenge for Matt But not an unreasonable one.

WAR MEATHEAD. mir is next

This!

TUF really really doesn't depict guys how they actually are.
Meathead isn't just intelligent, he's a hilarious guy too.

I meant Roy is one of the smartest, not Meathead. Though Meathead seems pretty smart too.

Oh yeah, my bad, I misread it. I stand by it though

I like both guys but it's high time Roy tried out LWH, so I want him to lose (though I don't think he will).

Not really a huge fan of either but I think they'll both make a fun fight. Looking forward to it!
