Best thing to happen for Dan

*Spolier if you havent seen Oct 24th's episode yet*






Being at the bad end of a decision will likely get him a contract after TUF is over. I don't think he could of won the 3rd round based on the first 2 anyways (always a punchers chance but still). So it will probably work out better for him this way.

I thought he had it in him to win but he was obviously not experianced in the ring. He had no control of his throws. Everytime he had a chance to hit him he just grabbed him and didnt do anything. If that one punch didnt land the first round dan wouldnt of been owed a 3rd round. But that shows how muscle bound dudes arnt always the best. But he will probobly train harder now and do better next time. I know its somewere in that head. Nice having 5k also.

He may not be the most experienced fighter, and that showed, as he seemed to be at a loss in the second round. But I will give him this... he reeks of potential. This guy could be fantastic, given the right training team and what-not. That was a great fight... well in to both fighters.

He was a good dude, and it a good role model so Dana probably digs the dude so he'll be around the UFC IMO. He is obviously inexperience, but you can tell that this is the kind of dude that won't say no and will go till the bitter end. How can't you respect that kinda attitude?

Once he gets better striking, he's going to be a beast. The power is already there, just needs the technique.

Hughes is getting murdered this season & Serra still has two tough dudes left. But Hughes could still win it all by riding Danzig to the finals.

I agree that he shows a lot of potential and class. I have no doubt that he will be back and better than before. I really think he needs to work on the ground and pound and sumbission defense. He was scared to go into guard and he would of won the fight with those. Probably my favorite person in the house.

She is really young and I can imagine trying to manage the house, finaces etc at that age can be a little stressfull. Not to mention she is worried about her husband not being there. Sounds like an anexity attack, or maybe slightly pi polar. I don't know.

Barrera was very raw, he showed heart and he had good power in his punches. He needs to work on his skills but he has the mental makeup to be a good fighter in the future.

I actually agree with the judges and think Ben took the 1st round, all Barrera did was land that 1 big shot. Ben was picking him apart with kicks, knees, punches and was controlling the fight. It was a close round but I agree with the judges.
