I know its becoming a cliche, but he DOES remind me of Hughes back in the early days, with two exceptions....he has knock out power, which is a positive, but not as good a wrestler, which is a negative. I was surprised to see Mac stuff him like he did and put him on his back. Seems raw strength isn't enough.

IF someone ties him up and makes him go to BJJ or submission wrestling camp he could learn some skills and start from the bottom....but in reality i don't think he'll last after the TUF momentum runs out.

He should go train at Couture's. Maynards who's similar but has better GnP is there and Couture can teach him lots along with all the other guys there.

He needs a shit ton of work. Like, a big huge, stinky pile of shit ton. Guy is just a wrestler who hits hard. No technique at all, and zero ground game. Dude is the total shits.

Sorry but no future for big boy Tommy.
If you spend six or so weeks in a house (than a few more after filming) to learn some fighting techniques and come out a sloth then you just don"t have it in you.
You need that natural instinct BJJ in you to ever be good or decent.
PLus I think he cuts way to easy, I don't even remember seeing Mac hit him hard and the fight ends you see Tommy with like 3-4 cuts under both eyes and on the brow I think.
I would have liked to see George and Mac could have been good!

The guy is 22 years old, and has gotten past the toughest challenge of fighting in MMA...getting punched in the head and having your arm being almost ripped off. With the right training I would say he is both mentally and physically capable of winning in the UFC. Just needs alot of work.

How can you guys seriously say that Tommy has no future? The guy, just turned 23 this year. I think he has all the tools to really be something in the UFC. The guy is really strong, has good wrestling, great GnP, a ton of heart, and heavy hands. Seems like whenever someone loses a fight they are 'done', this may be true of 30-something fighters with lots of fights, but Tommy is just starting his MMA carreer. I think his loss had a lot to do with his mental game, I just don't think he was mentally ready to be put on such a big stage. I would be prepared to say that someone like Billy Miles, John Kolosci, Blake Bowman, Andy Wang don't have a future, but to say that about a young powerhouse who clearly has skills is just unfair.

I look forward to seeing Tommy again. With some work in BJJ, and some kickboxing, he could be huge.

Oh and jdun, why did you come back after crying when Shogun lost? Seriously.

Matt Hughes and Mac Danzig said he has a ton of potential, so I'm going to take their words over you guys.

With the proper training, who knows?
