    For those of you new to the series, every Tuesday from June 18th until August 27th, with July 2nd off, top prospects and former UFC fighters will compete on a five-fight card with the opportunity to win a UFC contract. Some events, only one winner gets a contract, and others, multiple fighters are awarded that elusive contract.

    Alacabek is the first guy who I've known and followed since the inception of his career to his UFC-opportunity.

    Other than... you know... Brock Lesnar. :oops:

    Aggression
    Body-strikes
    Clinch-damage
    Clinch-wrestling
    All culminating in when his opponent gets taken down and made to presents their back and he snaps a submission.

    His background is in Grecho-Roman and Submission Wrestling and he's really good at combining those two. Sort of has that AKA cage-wrestling style going.

    I actually really like Shanna Young. She's a wrestler by trade but has karate-style standup with a lot of lead kicks.

    Tony Gravely is from my area, went to my rival high school and I have several friends that knew him. Really rooting for him to win, definitely won't miss this episode.

    Dude, I've never seen his opponent fight so I have no idea what this will look like.

    That said, Alacabek has mostly first-round finishes via wrestling-dominant submission. So Herdem at 4 minutes via RNC?

    If you bet on it and win then you know that you got to give me 50%, okay? It's the law, you know that right!? I'll sue if you don't give me 50% when the bout is over!:p
