injury, and TUF10 is turning out to be the first season in awhile that I'm pretty excited for in advance. Rumored participants are Robert Drysdale and a few other big names. Regardless, I'll be tuning in to see how Kimbo does!

i heard some rumored names of heavyweights going to the next season of TUF, and they are not amateurs. one i heard was Wes "The Project" Sims, who fought Frank Mir twice, and also Tim Sylvia. the other name i heard was Roy "Big Country" Nelson, who has fought Andrei Arlovski and Jeff Monson. though both have lost to the opponents named here, overall they have more wins than losses, and years of professional experience.

so they are not making things easy for Kimbo.

Thank you Diego Sanchez! Finally, someone beats the crap out of Clay Guida, even when he's laying on top of him doing nothing... would've liked to see him finished, but Guida's a tough dude. I'll give him that--he didn't even look that bad once they wiped all the blood off him. I'm sure his face was black and blue today.

Yay Ross! meh, not so yay for Wilks-I prefered DeMarques but he got soundly destroyed.

Decent finale though. Looking forward to the coaches' fight!

yeah I was happy with the card that night. I thought stevenson looked much better. Diego show some real intestinal fortitude and continued when other had gotten frustrated. His staring upon entering the arena was really funny.

Not sure how that guy gets to be called british when he has lived here for 9 years and has began a new life for himself here. But anyway congrats.

It seems like Dana always tries to create a conflict between the fighters. All marketing, if you ask me.

how many people think that Kimbo will go out on his first fight on the show? I have a feeling that something is going to go wrong with Dana;s hyping him. I just remember what Bas said when he cut him loose https://www.mixedmartialarts.com/mma.cf ... gid=149577

i was just thinking the same. with names like Drysdale, Sims, and Nelson rumored to be on the show, i'd have to agree. if the rest of the squad is as talented as those names, i don't see how Kimbo is gonna get past the first round.

i'd have to agree with this. Big Country Nelson has experience against some really tough guys and even held a title in IFL. though Wes Sims has more experience, i don't think his most recent opponents have been the caliber of Big Country's.

it sounds like it could be an interesting season. i just hope that with all the big mouths in the house, this season doesn't turn into another junie browning show.

Just heavyweights this season? Hopefully it's better than season 9.

There's been some major leaks about tuf 10 already. I won't say any in case anybody wants everything to be a surprise. Its just one google away though in case you're curious.
