    Yes, he may have lost his fights, including a quick knockout...but Wow...has this guy matured into a great role model

    His redemption story wasnt necessarily about winning fights, but winning at life

    So inspired by this guy's recovery outside of the sport and how he shares his faith in a peaceful way

    I really found it heart warming when he offered to pray with Haydar after he had just been Koed with him.

    Despite the (2) guys being different religions, it was nice to see them come together and pray and it looked like even TJ & Cody...Bucholz & Duane but their beef aside for that peaceful moment...just to give thanks to God/higher power for all of their blessings

    That my friends, is what religion should be about...respecting differences, open kindness and sharing in a common good...instead of forcing your ideas/beliefs on others

    He has in the past, and could in the future with the UFC...but for this TUF its a challenge because hes past his prime fighting up 2 weight classes than where he competes

    He has turned into a class act. He has had a great run but it is time to retire.

    His appearance certainly looks like a before picture more than a guy 4 years sober. Hope you're wrong though for Joe's sake.

    Definitely time to retire from fighting but it's he's still beneficial to his team from a coaching perspective. They're lucky to have him

    Wait. Which god? There's more than one? How do we know which one is real? Which we one should we believe in?

    It could be just me, but this whole "God" thing sounds a little far fetched!

    From episode 1, I disdained that aspect of this season. You've got guys who have fought at featherweight competing with guys who cut to make Middleweight. Joe vs Hayder was just ridiculous - not to mention, Joe had just been in a fairly contentious fight just one week prior. That was ugly.

    That's true, but almost everyone on that season was an actual WW or LW. This season you have a number of guys who fight at MW somehow cutting down to WW. There's a huge size disparity amongst the cast.

    Winning at life is a lot harder than winning in the ring

    Yeah, but after TUF, you usually see them drop down a weight class.

    I watched that season and even then he had to lose a silly amount of weight in a short space of time before his 1st fight.
