He is like 17-17, not the best record, I hope he is better than his record indicates. Of course I know you can't always go by that, but sometimes thats all you got. Is he Clay's brother or do they just have the same last name

The 155 Anderson is supposed to be Duerta although I know nothing about him.

Now I really like Ryan Bader the guy trains at ACS which i think is the most underrated gym in MMA. He made it to the national finals twice and is a lot like CB who even though a lot of you hate him is a pretty solid fighter.

BTW Fiveouncesofpain has a much better article that puts the gyms all the guys train at next 2 their names.

Wasnt Guida on the Adrenaline card in June? I dont know any of these guys but some of them have good records.

Funny that the UFC are trying to expand its two most stacked divisions. Both TUF winners will have a hard time trying to make a good career in the LW and LHW divisions.

I like this, these guys seem to be for real and not just some attention seeking wimps.

Seriously I really hope this is another TUF 5 with many, many good fighters coming out of this season.

What I saw in that Video is pretty impressive but honestly Duerta and Shane Nelson are probably the early favorites however I would say neither of those two are as good as Jim Miller who the UFC just signed and would belong on TUF.
