    I like Roop, he's an enjoyable fighter but he has gone 1:3 in the Octagon. He did KO KZ who many will argue will contend for the title soon and he did derail the Grispi hype-train. Sadly though, if he loses to Iuri it could be all over for him.

    Thoughts on Roop's past? Future? His chance at winning against Iuri?

    I doubt he beats alcantara and he probably gets cut with a loss unless its controversial or a FOTN

    Poirier actually derailed Grispi's hype train but Roop also did a lot to hurt Hioki's hype.

    I feel the same way about him ko'ing KZ, but I do like Roop and would like to see him win and stick around.

    Yeah, the way he acted after he KO'd KZ with the naptime taunt really rustled my jimmies. I laughed for a good few minutes when Hominick put him in his place and then he wobbled around the ring with Hominick having to support him.

    That's true, I forgot about that hard to watch Hioki fight. Hopefully Hioki comes to the states a little early this time around and is less jet-lagged.
