Because he cost Dana a shitload of money by beating Kimbo Slice in that season of TUF.

If Roy actually trained he probably could've beaten him.
Well I liked the improvements to his striking though I still wouldn't call him a good striker and he is a european wrestler which means he can't take anyone down. Roy just isn't a good fighter though he knocks out people with no chin and bad defense and gets picked apart by everyone else.

I've never played any trolling roles.

Stipe is good enough to beat guys but he's not really a good fighter. He's not exactly going to be fighting for a title any time soon.

He's mostly "good" in that he's an athletic heavyweight and isn't fat and seems to train with some sort of regularity.

Eh, fair enough. There are a lot of good fighters who will never vie for a title, but I get your meaning.

He is alright; nothing special. Hunt would probably smoke him.

But you surely understand the "improvements" can only be taken in with the understanding that he's a heavyweight...and thus his blatantly embarrassing level of striking is actually sufficient?



I'd actually hate to see him fight Hunt, he'd probably get killed assuming Hunt can still fight.

Stipe is USA wrestler and he has quite a few takedowns. Like you never saw that guy before.

His shot is so bad. He literally reaches down for the guys legs and pulls.

It barely can qualify as a shot.



That said(surprise!) folkstyle wrestling at the HW level is absolute garbage....and mostly consists of two fat guys pushing each other out of the ring(which doesn't even score in stupid ass folkstyle) and resetting every 2 minutes.


Folkystyle is already unwatchable, but if you really want to claw your eyes out, go watch Cole Konrad "wrestle" in college.


No wonder Cole Konrad is a like a big fat real estate agent now or something. Dude would've been trash at senior level and in MMA he never would've been top 10. I mean he did win Pan Ams but at his weight class that's not as impressive as it seems.
