    I just watched the post weigh-in for Denver and I'm surprised to see John Gunther on the card! Lol. Didn't expect the UFC to sign him considering his performance on TUF, but I do understand why they did sign him. His personality is just weird-funny and unique, like you want to get behind him, and you want to see him win. Therefore, I hope he'll make stellar of his opportunity here and not disappoint. Looking forward to the FS1 prelims

    Gunther is undefeated and 1-0 in the UFC. He also has a win over Devonte Smith, who is in the UFC.

    Deal with it.

    He seemed like a really cool guy when he was on TUF.

    I hope he does well.

    Very sloppy fighter but also very tough and seems like a cool dude on TUF.

    War Gunther!

    everything about him is unique.

    -shears alpacas for a living
    -sleeps in his van (even when provided hotel accommodations for his ufc fights, he prefers to sleep on the floor rather than the bed)
    -undefeated as a pro (5-0), yet lost both his tuf fights and 1 of his amateur fights

    The guy he's fighting is a -1000 favorite on Bovado. Someone needs to take Gunther aside and explain to him that he need to stop fighting so he can save his las

    Was gonna say this, he's the biggest dog on the card and doesn't have a lot match up wise for his opponent

    If only he owned a handful or so gumball/vending machines. Then he'd be PERFECT.

    Until then I will gladly root for him, just to a slightly lesser degree than I will when he becomes the vending King!

    He won his UFC debut, why wouldn't they give him another fight?

    Not watched Tuf in years so had no idea who he was and why Ramos betting line is so high
    What's so cool about him?

    I picked him to win tomorrow. Hopefully he can prevent the takedown from his opponent and grind out another win.
