    good for him honestly. I've seen some of his fights and he usually brings it, best of luck to him in the UFC

    ayari is a joke... but wallhead is not a killer either... this is not a high caliber MMA fight between two of the best fighters ...

    Never heard of them but I'm voting for judo Jim since he has a cool nick name

    Jim Wallhead was marginally relevant in 2010.

    I didn't expect to ever see this. It's a winnable fight for him too.

    I made a thread about it awhile ago and its finally happening. "Judo" Jim Wallhead has signed with the UFC and will be debuting on the Hamburg, Germany fight card. Wallhead is one tough Brit and I feel like he has the potential to be a big star for the UK market. Anyone else excited for his debut?

    He's got the tattoos to be a solid UFC fighter.

    Meek pulled out because he didn't want to risk failure due to a drug test before or after the fight.

    He took supplements before signing with the UFC and being involved with USADA, and didn't know if that would come up. He's still signed and will fight at a later date.

    He will win this fight and maybe a second and then when he steps up he will lose his next 3 and get cut. He beat Trigg at the end of his career.

    Interesting. I lost track of him after the Rick Hawn fight a few years ago.
