I remember before the Danzig fight, they were praising his brute stregnth and size over Mac. Saying that Mac would have alot of trouble with him, than Danzig makes short work out of him.

He's really not ready for Elite competition. The WEC may not be the best place for him either. I don't see him even being a gate keeper there.

Tommy is actually not with the WEC. He has come back to Rochester at 4th St. Gym to train again. He has a fight coming up here in Rochester, MN. Then another fight I think He told me in November for a Matt Hughes Event. I will have to Double check with him Tuesday if he is there. He never trians with our class he is always doing his own thing to get ready for his fight. But he is always hanging out by our class talking to our instructor (Mario Roberto) We have MMA class Tuesday and Thursday, which I take. JJ is MON. WED. ands FRI. I know he workouts some with the class on those days but I am not apart of the JJ at the moment. Probably more then you care to read, just thought I would let you all know.

Its guys like Tommy who almost made me give up on TUFF. I mean the dude had no talent other then his strength and he almost wins the entire show!! That doesnt say much for the other guys on the show either.

Anyways TUF has picked back up and i love it again

The WEC allows their fighters to fight outside their org I believe. Are you sure he is not under contract with WEC and simply waiting a while before taking his first fight with them? Because I read just about three months back that the contract was already signed.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

I guess no I am not 100% sure. I don't know Tommy really. I have talked to him a coule times just for a few minutes. I never asked if he had a contract with WEC. All he told me where about his upcoming fights he had. So you could be right on that. I will try and find that out if I get the chance.

Please do! I'm pretty sure he is signed with them, even though he's not on their fighter roster yet... that thing is always outdated, they still have Brandon Vera on there in fact and he's been out of the WEC for like two and a half years.

Is this a dream matchup of yours or something? Danzig will be fighting Guida and Diaz is fighting Neer.

Danzig v. Diaz would still be pretty good though, although I think Danzig would take this in decisive fashion though.

just checked the WEC website and he isn't listed as a fighter maybe he was dropped by them too.
He had one fight in the WEC in 2007 prior to joining the TUF cast. He is not slated to fight WEC 36, but will probably show up in WEC 37
