I just think people got in his face because of frustration over losing 2 in a row... Sure he's immature and he responds like you'd expect from someone his age... So I really don't see why people got so heated over it, except the aforementioned losing-streak

Also, the things he was yelling out at the fight isn't out of the ordinary on those stands when you're watching a friend of yours fight

I won't blame him for it, I just realize he's a little immature

I don't like him, I don't like him at all.

I think his attitude sucks, he is annoying and immature. Somepeople like fighters that cause drama and such, but I am a fan of the quiet guy that does his talking with his hands (Gegard Mousasi, GSP ect.)

He feels it "makes for good TV" and I'm sure the TUF producers were encouraging him, implicitly or otherwise.

Notice how he had a shot of brandy in his hand. The producers set everything up, and I don't blame Kendall Grove for talking so poorly about this show, its more about ratings and UFC publicity then it is about prospect development and recruiting.

The show was almost never about prospect development. Maybe for the first season or two, but not now. The UFC is mainstream enough now, that they have no need at all anymore to go fishing in parking lot MMA arenas for talent. Anyone who is decent is already on their radar.

The first couple seasons really made the UFC mainstream, and they actually got some decent fighters out of it, but it's not only a joke now, but a completely unnecessary joke.

Quite an entertaining joke though. Otherwise, we wouldn't be here talking about it.

I think like some others have said, he's playing it off for the ratings. He's young and brash. I think we'll see him grow up a bit if he's able to put it together and stay in the UFC.

First off, I find it offensive that some guys think that's how people of my age behave. :P

My opinion on him is that I don't give a crap, he's just another clown planted by Spike to increase the ratings. I've started to fast forward any scene that features him. It's pretty effective, I basically never have to see his face again apart from his next fight.

This is a wily and excellent strategy.

I love him. Its not often something comes along that looks so cute and yet is so easily punchable in the face... without any guilt at all. Fantastic.
