    He's fighting Matt Secor at CFFC 36 on July 21st. Excited to see how he'll do since all the TUF bullshit.

    Porn Lyman. He's got nowhere to go and prove himself now. He lost thrice in Bellator and left there, got given a terrible stylistic matchup on TUF just so they could make Bellator look bad (and cuz' of that they ain't gonna let him into the WSOF, I.E., the UFC B-league), and Askren's in One FC so he won't be able to find success there unless Askren loses tomorrow.

    Looks like the road back up starts in June, though.

    I really hope he can get some somewhat relevant wins and eventually get into the UFC, they've let two other Bellator champs fight for them.

    UFC told Askren to sign with WSOF when they didn't sign him, so I don't see why he couldn't end up there. Titan FC wouldn't be a bad place for him either. Ben Saunders is going to need some competition. WSOF has a stacked 170 division though, and he might get beat up by some of their roster so who knows if thats where he'll end up. If we wants in UFC, his best bet is Titan.

    What happened with Lyman Good on TUF? Is he still with Tiger Shulman?

    He got owned during the qualification rounds and the Dana White kiss-ass that beat him shouted to Dana's fat ass that "Bellator fighters have no business in the UFC".

    Titan would be an awesome home for him, they seem to have some good guys for him to fight.

    Titan vs Saunders would be badass. if he's staying at 185 I don't see why One wouldn't sign him though. Leandro needs some competition.

    If he can put 2 or 3 wins together he can get back into the big leagues. I think he'll bounce back just fine. He's 29, so he still has potentially 3 or 4 prime years left to make something happen.

    the problem is, at 29 he doesn't look like he's worked on his wrestling/JJ AT ALL. He hits the mat and looks like a fish out of water. Just doesn't cut it, at all these days. Disappointing because I think the dude is a natural born fighter, he's just got glaring holes in his game. As for why he won't invest every ounce of his being into working those areas is beyond me.

    Win a few CFFC fights, win their WW title and I think an org like Titan or WSOF will pick him up.

    I don't think he will, he seems too loyal even if it's for his own good.

    I train at Tiger's it's not bad, I just think he should go train with other top athletes because Tigers doesn't really have many. They do have good fighters though.

    One doesn't need to leave one's gym entirely to train with others, he could cross train at other camps while keeping his main camp at TSK.

    I agree, he honestly would benefit from a camp with more guys in the 170 - 185 range as well. I think TSMMA is way better than it gets credit for, but it's like Alpha Male east, their best guys (Gaudinot, Pace, Rivera) are all lower weight classes.

    He should at least be cross training at gyms with some bigger guys. Hit up Serra/Longo or AMA once or twice a week. Maybe go roll at Renzo's academy. Those are just the camps in his immediate area that could supplement his training at TSMMA.
