Tommy Spear- Future in UFC

I am not a fan of Tommy Spear. I believe that he is very one diminsional. He is stiff and when he does take the fight to the ground, it does not seem like he even wants to pass guard. He also is taking his "farmboy" mentality way to far. Is it cool to be a farmboy now? TUF 6 did not have the best talent. Tommy Spear in my opinion was not very deserving to be fighting for the TUF 6 Championship. He is very boring. But the UFC is going to have to bring him back. Is anyone else very upset that one diminsional boring stiff farmboy Tommy Spear is going to be sticking around the UFC for a while?

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

i agree with unholy if he doesnt go to a real camp and work on other areas of his game then he isnt going to go far. he'll prolly get 1 or 2 more fights and if he loses them both he'll be gone because he didn't show anything special at all in the finale.

Tommy is new to this. What do all of you expect. He is very raw but with the right camp and a good bjj coach he has grest potential. He has the strenght, knock out power, good wrestling and most of all has shown he has tons of heart. He just needs to be helped not slammed.

He didn't win the contract. He shouldnt have a future. I'm sick of the UFC being their to support TUF, and not the other way around.

you're absolutely right, but he won't get it in elgin MN. He'll have to leave the farm for an extended period, which he sounds willing to do, but he might also have to work out for hours on end in a "gym with fancy equipment...." oh no!

I thought he had a good attitude apart from playing the farm boy card too much. I think he'll be a force in some fight organization before long, with the right training as you said.

Tommy is just really green. They guy needs a lot of training. He has a lot of talent and phyiscal ablity, to go far in that divsion. He needs to leave his farm adn go to a good camp. If he takes it serious he could be really good in 2-3 years.

He should go train with BJ Penn. They'll slap some BJJ on him.

He might get able to TKO or lay n pray a few weaker fighters but he will never beat anybody worth talking about without some serious training and changes

Imagine being used to living in a township with 800 people in it and then walking into a cage with thousands watching you. He looked pretty uncomfortable to me as soon as he walked out from the back.
