It doesnt seem like he was working on any part of his fighting just his strength training. I didnt see any control on his part and the one he landed on ben was probobly lucky. As much as I would love to try for the UFC thats the top ranked stuff. If you havnt fought before your not ready for anything UFC related. It shows way to much with blake then him. If they could train and listen to there coaches maybe it would be ok. But they cant seem to understand what they are there for. You should have like 5 amatuer fights and atleast a year of training before getting into that show. I didnt think ben had much of a chance but honestly he wasnt the best but atleast he knew how to fight, guard, throw punches and stay focused. He shouldve stayed home and keeped flipping tires and lifting huge rocks to stay fit. I only see him as a bodybuilder and not an MMA fighter.
I agree, I can't see how Dan could have gotten a shot in the UFC with little or NO experience. He was like 15-3 as an amateur boxer, but he has NO MMA fights that I can find any proof of. Hughes' blog says he's had one fight, but even if that's true, I don't see that as worthy of a shot in the UFC.
