I honestly think he would have beat Tommy in the end of TUF6 if not for the incidental eye-poke. He could not see, and was hit by a hook coming from his blind side. However, this was pretty much his fault, as he immediately wanted to get back in the fight, instead of taking up to the 5 minutes he was allowed to recover. Quite an amateur mistake, thinking he has to get back in it before Tommy recovered.
And yes, I don't doubt that Roop looked like a pretty easy opponent. Still, the timing and fluidity of George's BJJ was very nice.
Also, I think I remember hearing that MMA is outlawed in several places in Australia. Maybe if George makes something of himself in the UFC, they may reconsider. If MMA had been illegal all over Canada when George St. Pierre rose to the top, I doubt it would be today now that he is a national athletic hero.
