    I just started writing a book of Weavers story. Growing up in the mean streets of the nasty Natti. He is a humble man.

    In 3rd grade his goal was to be the best streetfighter in cincinatti. Could make for a decent story

    Funny side note. My daughter went to the school where Rich Franklin taught. She said they had a hallway named after him.

    Dana hates people who go for decision wins yet gives Brok Weaver a contract on a decision win. His record is 13-4 with 8 decisions...yeah thanks Dana, I always need a 20 minute power nap during UFC events

    Right? Then neglects to sign Knight and Anglickas even though both are action fighters in a shallow division.

    I didn't mind the signings to be honest.

    Anglickas vs. Reed - the problem here was that Julius was completely passive for far too long in the fight. He was content to do very little until the 3rd round, and while he did show killer instinct then, he was also fucking knackered. 7-1, 28yrs old, I agree with Dana - let him go back to LFA and defend his 205lb title there 1-2 times, then sign him up. Reed was very disappointing, at 30yrs old I'd say his chances of making the UFC now are pretty slim in general. He'd need to win another 3-4 fights before being considered again, against good fighters.

    Rodriguez vs. Gravely - wicked fight in general, both are good enough to at least get a UFC chance. Gravely is good but to be honest, I don't see him doing much in the bantamweight division - that said, he deserves his shot and the fight was exciting. Rodriguez will probably be back on Season 4, I reckon, if he wins 1-2 fights. Id put Gravely in there against someone like Mitch Gagnon.

    WMMA FIGHT - Any Woman on this series who finishes her fight is getting signed, simple as that. No opinion on it.

    Smith vs. Weaver - I think Smith with healed hands would have won that fight but it was pretty scrappy and Weaver is tough as fuck and game. Ugly as hell, too. Fuck me. Imagine looking like Brok Weaver? Anyway, personally I may not have signed him because 12-4 isn't amazing and despite being a banger he's not a finisher per se, either. But, will probably make some fun prelim-level fights for a year or two. Stick him in there with Frank Camacho. Fireworks.

    Alacabek vs. Knight - Jesus Christ! I couldn't believe Knight. He's literally built like a silverback gorilla, 100%. It's freaky looking muscles, but somehow his cardio is rather good! He was game as fuck, and looked comfortable in most areas not to mention freakishly physically strong. If he'd 10seconds longer, Herdem's arm was getting snapped in round 2. Alacabek is clearly a tidy prospect who has never fought a guy who simply doesnt "go away" under a bit of pressure. He's faced that now, he should bounce back accordingly. Knight looks interesting, liked him a lot and agree with Dana's decision. Put him in Titan FC or something for a couple fights, then snap him up.
