That’s how it always is though…the dude that get’s passed up comes back hard! Mos def, one WEC fighter I ♥ who is champ right now. ♠ Log in to Reply AOPrinciple February 28, 2012 lol that’s rich! Dana is probably kicking himself for this one 😀 Log in to Reply Harih February 28, 2012 Indeed you were looking at the future Lwgt UFC champion..turned down probably cause he didnt look “cool” on cameras…pfff tard ufc selections for this shows… Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick February 28, 2012 I think they didn’t picked him because they knew he was already too good for TUF. Log in to Reply Jindod February 28, 2012 Shocking that he didn’t get in. Not mental enough probably, better to pick some loony who will get the ratings up. Log in to Reply mscash February 28, 2012 Smile Ben … … and give an additional bow to the judges. Log in to Reply tobes February 28, 2012 They wanted a Brit to win to help promote the show there. KungFuLowKick is right. They probably were worried that he would use his wrestling and just win decisions over the whole competition. Log in to Reply Genghis Khan February 28, 2012 They prefer fighters like Kimbo and Junie Browning, contestants that are better showman than fighters Log in to Reply glenn February 28, 2012 when hes talking in that video,he kinda look like computer geek,hahaha yea a computer geek that can kick youre ass Log in to Reply marvelous mad madam mim February 28, 2012 @lowkick exactly Log in to Reply majaja February 28, 2012 I am gay and you guys are gay too Log in to Reply ^^^^ February 29, 2012 He didn’t get in because he has a damn toothpick in his mouth. Log in to Reply dharmaboy February 29, 2012 they probably saw his vids and could tell he was going to kill the competition in the house. Log in to Reply jake February 29, 2012 Some good points about him being too good. I can see them picking lesser fighters for ratings. I’m sure the glasses couldn’t help either haha, I wear glasses and always get that nerd sterotype. Not to mention nerdy glasses and tough tooth pick don’t fit well Log in to Reply cigronne February 29, 2012 Might be the toothpick/the dorky glasses, but after watching this video seems like you gotta be blind to passing up on him Log in to Reply wow February 29, 2012 @lowkick, you know your shit mate, very true,. Log in to Reply steamer February 29, 2012 wow…really made whoever made the ultimate call on that season (prob some douchey producer) look like a real *******, good job Log in to Reply Goomba February 29, 2012 Guess some things do happen for a reason. Perhaps if he would have been casted he would not have joined the WEC. The WEC almost made him into what he is today. I bet initially he was bummed out about not making the cut…but if he were to look back at it today, then I’m sure he’d be glad he didn’t. Log in to Reply clemmit February 29, 2012 Great fighter, but the open sided vest and toothpick look has got to go! As others have said i don’t think he got in as he was too advanced, particularly with his wrestling. It would have been a serious miss-match for him to fight any british guys, as we aren’t great wrestlers (to say the least). And i do agree that ufc wanted to promote the show in the uk, so they could hardly have all their fighters being mauled by a wrestler. Log in to Reply Mud Helmet February 29, 2012 Dont hate on TUF…its produced some excellent talent. He was probably deemed to advanced to participate anyway. The UFC knows talent and how to run an organization. Hate on them all you want…if it wasnt for them where would the sport be. I loved PRIDE just as much as anyone, but they constantly fought out of weight class and had rampant steroid use. Remember when they protested Diaz beating of Gomi for pot usage…what about all the steroids the fighters took…ever test for those. Log in to Reply wow February 29, 2012 lets be honest there is only so many slots to give out and hindsight is a wonderful thing, he is now our champ so who cares Log in to Reply Newfie Jitsu February 29, 2012 to the guy who made the computer geek comment. my days goes as fallowed: 1/4 sleep, 1/4 work, 1/4 train(juijitsu for the most part) and the last 1/4 of my day fixing and playing with computers. a school teacher can fight, why not a computer nerd? Log in to Reply Newfie Jitsu February 29, 2012 ^^rough timeline but you get the point lol. Log in to Reply fedor tapped like a baddass March 1, 2012 bendo hell yeah hail satan! SATAN! SATAN! SATAN! Log in to Reply theunderfighter March 1, 2012 Lulz the comment above me ^ Meh, I honestly think he was too good to be on that show… Either way, it’s gotta be pretty incredible to be able to look back and say, I told you I’d be champ, and here I ****ing am!
