Is Weems really that bad?

Jens Pulver: I Was “Disgusted” by Wayne Weems
Posted by UFC Junkie on April 27, 2007 at 10:45 am ET
During last night’s episode of The Ultimate Fighter 5, Wayne Weems took a real beating from coach Jens Pulver. In fact, for a guy who hadn’t gotten much camera time and didn’t seem to have any hard feelings with his cast members, Weems seemed an unlikely candidate for such a verbal lashing.

I made reference to the segment in last night’s episode recap here on UFCjunkie.com (www.ufcjunkie.com).

And while Weems did appear a few steps behind his teammates when it came to their workout sessions, Pulver’s criticism hardly seemed like the kind that would be considered constructive.

However, based on Pulver’s latest episode summary, we now know his reasoning for the no-love approach to the fighter. Apparently, the former UFC champ took offense to Weems calling himself a Miletich fighter after he appeared at their gym just two times before the show began taping. After all, Pulver’s a Miletich fighter himself.

As Pulver wrote at InsideFighting.com:

Here’s the thing with Weems. They say and he said and is still saying that he trained with Team Miletich. No he didn’t. He called us up about two months before the show and said he wanted to come down and train with us.

He trained two times with us and then never came back. And he lives a couple of miles from the gym, there’s no reason for that. So going into the show I knew what to expect. He was behind, not in shape and clumsy… He could have been ready, all he needed to do was show up. So I was disgusted by him for that reason. Everyday I got on his butt and yelled at him. But I didn’t want to break him, at the end of every day I would try to get him up and I would tell him “you know why I’m doing this, you know why.” He had to know that was coming, he should have been ready.

And he’s still doing the same thing now… It’s not that hard to train at our gym, all you have to do is show up. That’s what I did. I got on a train and showed up and never left. So I have no love for someone that just shows up once or twice so that they can go around saying that they trained with the fighters at Team Miletich.

You can read his full column at InsideFighting.com.

Despite Pulver’s allegations, I should note that Weems is hardly a newbie when it comes to MMA. He entered The Ultimate Fighter series with a 9-2 record (12-2 by some counts) while fighting for a variety of Midwest-based organizations over the past three years. According to his FightFinder entry, he’s currently riding a five-fight win streak — with all five victories ending in the first round (though this opponents had combined for a 0-6 overall record).

It’ll be interesting to see how this relationship plays out during the remainder of the season, but based on Pulver’s comments, I doubt we see Waynes progress past his first fight on the show. It’d be unlikely for a coach to continue dragging a fighter’s name through the mud if he had a chance of winning the show.

What!? Did you read the post?!! I was just askin a question, because the guy was portrayed as clumsy yet he has a decent record! If you're the one who gave me the neg rep for this, you can admit it. If not, let's move along...

5 of his fights were against 1st fight guys(who have not fought since), another was the guys 2nd fight. So yea.. i'm gonna say he has only fought 3 real guys.

And out of the 3 real guys, the only one that has a winning record is Allen Hernandez which is 5-4. And also out of the 3, only 1 has fought tough competiton and that Dan GIlbert an fought sakurai and trigg (he's also 5-7). so yea, basically what this means is that records don't mean shit, unless its full of beaten good guys.

Ok, thanks for clearing that out.
