For sure. I hate the fact he can't be bothered to train properly and cut the gut but this guy is a legit HW. The thought of him fighting Kimbo makes me smile.
I don't like having so many vets on the show though. The idea of uncovering new talent appeals to me and the majority of these guys are fighters who have already shown they can't make it in the UFC.
The guy who is 4-0 and coming out of the Jackson camp is worth looking at probably. Almost everyone in that camp is decent.
Some of the write ups are a bit funny.
"MATT MITRIONE: Another ex-NFL player, debuted as a rookie in 2002 for Minnesota Vikings. Very little MMA experience but trains with highly-regarded
UFC heavyweight Jake O'Brien."
Uhhh, highly regarded...what? Don't most people think O'Brien is mediocre and boring?
"JUSTIN WREN: At 22 years old, The Viking is one of the youngest contestants on the new series. He has a 6-1 MMA record and trains with UFC star Travis Lutter's
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu team."
Missing weight, losing, gassing horribly, losing and then getting cut amid widespread derision = UFC star? Ok....
