    While I wouldn't go so far as calling the man a bitch, because he'd probably choke the shit out of me, I think he probably should have realized his heart wasn't into it well before the show filmed. You don't suddenly realize that.

    Was a big fan of this guy on the show. Very interesting character, his fight with Torres was entertaining too

    Really? I thought he was entertaining compared to guys like Leben, Browning, Bisping, Rampage on S10, Jesse Taylor, War Machine, Colton Smith, James McSweeney, Marc Stevens .. I could go on

    Big Baby from Rampage and Evans' season. Was hoping he'd win the whole thing

    Guy was a savage. Nasty KO power and great wrestling. Horribly mismanaged career otherwise I'm convinced he would have been pretty successful.

    Oh no he definitely wasn't anything great. He had a decent ground game if I remember correctly though

    In his defense, he played 7 years or so in the NFL and probably had numerous concussions. Basically had the wear and tear of an Overeem on his chin before he made his first TUF fight.

    Does anyone remember (you literally won't I'm just weird)
    From the first tuf U.K. VS USA
    Frank lester fought a guy called Kiel Reid in a weird fight where Kiel knocked himself out cold on a slam, then Lester seemingly kimura'd a dead body and popped his shoulder, Kiel wakes up in disbelief saying 'No way I lost to that California pussy'

    Was just a weird ass situation that always stuck with me

    Also from that season, SLICK NICK and Martin Stapes (lives in my city) both good British fighters that are both still winning

    There's so many but the ones that always come to mind still are...

    Luke Cummo, was so pleased to see the guy get all the way to the finals when he got picked last and they made him look like shit in the house. Shame to see it seems he's batshit crazy these days from what I've heard.

    Who could forget Gabe Ruediger for obvious reasons...

    Dave Kaplan getting KO'd by Tom Lawlor after begging him to punch him in the face because nobody had or could ever KO him.

    Junie Browning obviously, Julian Lane the same.

    I always remember Jason Von Flue coming into Season 2 as an alternate and the death stare Matt Hughes gave him when he turned round and caught Von Flue doing the Cena "Can't see me" thing behind his back <45>I ended up really liking him for his great fight and unexpected win over Gurgel but he went on to pretty much do nothing and vanish into obscurity.

    Remember Scarola making himself look a huge bitch too when everyone begged and pleaded for him to stay only for him to still leave to go be with his girlfriend. Wow, I mean some guys are away from their kids for weeks and you can't leave your girl a few weeks to change your life potentially in your supposed dream job? Weak. I know a couple of others did it too but I especially remember White talking to Scarola more than once and Serra desperately trying to convince him not to throw everything away.

    i still can't believe they brought Julian Lane back

    he lost on the weakest season and made a complete fool of himself in the process
