    I think he was a popular enough fighter or he wasn't a dick outside the cage at least.

    I remember reading his bio' and he had kids and got married at a young age. Doing MMA seems hard enough without having that on your plate, never mind the other way round.

    He always seemed to fight frequently enough, which would mean long periods away from his family and add that up with getting paid not a whole lot, you could probably see why he or any fighter would take to booze.

    I'd say the 'redemption' part would be more fitting for Jesse Taylor after he fucked up majorly.

    joe fell had back in the day losing 6 in a row and then hanging the gloves up for a few years. he got lit up in his first fight back, but has strung together two wins after that.

    joe is a 155er. he did well against justin edwards, but i knew he would get steam rolled by hassan. that guy is a huge WW. i'd like to see him back at 155. give him a competitive fighter, but someone down the ranking list in the UFC. if he gets a "W' then let him move up slowly.

    i don't think he has much left in the tank, but maybe he has a handful of entertaining fights left in him. he's a beast on the ground at 155.

    I might come off as an asshole, but I found it a bit over the top. Especially the praying thing was annoying.

    You forget a few things.

    1. WW on that season were: Melvin (LW), Marcus Davis (LW), Gurgel (fought at different classes from LW to MW but really an LW), Josh Burkman (fought from LW to MW) and a few WW that were not that good.
    2. It was the time when skill disparity was bigger. FFS. Kenny FLorian fought in season 1 as a MIDDLEWEIGHT and got to the final. You know, they guy who ended his carreer as a 145lb fighter.

    Truly seems like a great guy, hell I wasn't even overly bothered with his Christian bit. Just seems like a genuinely caring individual. Class act.

    Once Joe got sober I saw a instant change in him. He is honestly one of the best guys I have ever met personally in the MMA world and does a absolute ton for people that will never see the light of day.

    If you look at your av, like really closely, after a few minutes you can see a boat.

    Go watch the clip again, he has a soda in front of him and he didnt look like he was drinking to me. I think the beard doesnt help, makes him look homeless/crazy so his recovery bit took a hit from his image.
