I think that sums it up nicely. Don't know if everyone's already seen this interview, but, as usual, Frank hits every nail on the head.

As for Leroy, I don't mind him, although I think everyone in the house is over reacting at his antics, but that's now a norm with TUF when there's one really young guy there.

I hate Frank Mir, or should i say 'hated' frank Mir until i saw that video. Didn't realise he was like that and could talk so much sense.

As for Leeroy, I in no way think he is in the same A-hole league as Junie Browning (yet) and from what we've seen he is an antagonist but has not actually broken any rules as such.

He's like a smaller, louder mouthed, more annoying version of that head kick guy with the afro from the last season. (i can't for the life of me remember his name)

Jamie Yager. Yeah that guy was a douche. I don't particular care for Mir as a fighter, but as a speaker/commentator/analyst he's pretty goddamn awesome.

I won't mind Leeroy's antics so long as he backs it up in the cage, and comes no where near as close to Junie Browning's 'legacy of douche'. Man, when Jamie Yager quit in the ring I couldn't believe it. I think Leeroy's got heart though, personally

Frank Mir has a definite future in broadcasting with the UFC. Some of the stuff he says to hype a fight is beyond stupid, but when he's talking normally, dissecting an issue or breaking down a fight he comes across as incredibly intelligent and speaks fantastically about the sport. He has an excellent voice for commentary too. There are guys like Chuck Liddell who clearly know what they're talking about when it comes to MMA, but I wouldn't want to hear him doing commentary, as his voice just wouldn't work. Frank is very eloquent and I enjoy listening to him speak about the sport. Passion for a subject mixed with eloquence is an excellent combination.

As for Alex Caceres. He's one of the most irritating people to ever step into the TUF house. His smile, his voice, the things he says, the arrogance, the fact he calls himself Bruce Leeroy and the fact he's not actually that good a fighter to back up all his shit talking makes for an incredibly irritating package. He makes Josh Koscheck look likeable. Can't stand him. Looking forward to the time when he eventually gets the shit kicked out of him. Is there any chance that his next opponent on TUF gets injured and they draft Anderson Silva or Brock Lesnar in for the fight? Fingers crossed.

Yeah, Frank is a smart cookie and gets it spot on.

Nice to see another Seasider here on the forum AJ, I haven't met a single other serious MMA fan here in sunny Blackpool. Welcome to the forum, mate.

Absolutely +1. Same with Kenny Florian, imo.

Ha! didn't know there were any myself either. Trying to get my mates into it too. Got a few with 117, lost a few with 119 Though 120 should cement a few, it's the English way lol.

Looking the join the Sukata gym after the new year. Getting myself into shape before I join though. Do you train? If not check out Sukata MMA. Mario goes down for a masterclass on Saturday's (not that I'll ever belong there anytime soon) and Ross Pearson made an appearance not too long ago.

*Sorry for Off Topic*

He's a producers dream but I think he's an idiot. Martial Arts is meant to teach respect but obviously he has none of that. And whats with the correlation between stupid hair and being a douchebag?

I liked him at the first of the season, when he showed up in that yellow suit and the comb in his hair. I thought he was hilarious and his personality would make the show enjoyable. His trash talking does make the show much more interesting. He gets the other fighters worked up and its fun to see their reactions to his jack-assery. However, like the first reply said: He is immature and just a bit over his head. He's a good fighter however.

He spices up the show, but by the end he needs his teeth kicking in.
