Roy's side of the story

Next, itís time for weigh-ins. Bristolís cut looked rough, but heís at 170 pounds for the fight. Well, at least thatís what the commission says. Julian doesnít buy it. Joey thinks the same. They believe Bristol is heavy. It doesnít matter though. Bristol steps off the scale and hurries up and drinks fluid to prevent any questioning, Like in football they hike it before the challenge flag comes out. Bristol is official. This is where the guys wanted me to talk to Dana, and I said I would handle it for future weigh ins since Dana wasnít there.

Him approaching Dana makes sense but still, no way is an official going to incorrectly weigh in a fighter like that. Not on that show surely?

Equipment malfunctions, I recall their being a weight calibration issue during one of the shows. I remember it distinctly because I lost credits on the V:Bookie bet as someone seemed like they were out of shape when they weren't.

A bit of a late response on Alvey vs. Rivera. I admit I sort of expected too much out of Alvey after a single fight on the show.

One question surfaces for me. I don't understand White's reason for picking Alvey to beat Rivera easily. He based his pick off of their first fights. Alvey had a quick one punch knock out while Rivera won a grinder, so White assumed Alvey would walk through Rivera. Why? Completely different fights and Dana should know by now that quick knock out artists have been known to flop big time in the UFC once they actually face adversity. Not that Alvey is just a knock out artist, but White seemed to base his prediction off that one fight so he might as well be. Just a weird prediction by Dana White in my opinion. I picked Alvey to win too, but not because he looked more impressive in one fight that was a completely different kind of fight, and I wasn't thinking that it was an easy pick either.

That being said, I was disappointed with Sam's performance. He had the same stance in his first fight on the show, but I figured he stood like that because it was still early into round one. In his fight against Rivera, he had the same exact stance and he didn't seem to change it much even after Joey was clearly winning on the score cards. Sam just stood straight up and was throwing one punch at a time looking for that knock out. Not sure if he was being lazy, or if that's just how he fights. If so, this guy needs to learn some footwork.

I think White assumed that Alvey a LHW cutting down two weight classes would run over Nelson's biggest guy Rivera. What they didn't take into account is the quick turnaround between fights (and weight cuts) obviously took a heavy toll on him. He reminded me of Cole Miller at Featherweight, just slow awkward and quick to gas.

Really this was Shane Carwin's fault, that was a bad fight for Alvey and he made it so that none of his other guys would face off against Nelson's biggest wrestler.

I don't see why everyone thought alvey was so good. He was getting ****ed up a little bit before he landed one punch and won to get into the house. How that qualifies him to be a first pick is beyond me. I didn't expect him to lose but I was by no means shocked. You shouldn't be a first pick if your fight goes thirty seconds. You just don't show enough.

I think if Ricci can deal with a big wrestler or two, which I assume he can he trains at tristar, he will win it all.
