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…

KungFuLowKick Says, in 2-28-2012 at 20:40:00 from    

I think they didn’t picked him because they knew he was already too good for TUF.

Jindod Says, in 2-28-2012 at 20:46:12 from    

Shocking that he didn’t get in.

Not mental enough probably, better to pick some loony who will get the ratings up.

Smile Ben …

… and give an additional bow to the judges.

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.

They prefer fighters like Kimbo and Junie Browning, contestants that are better showman than fighters

He didn’t get in because he has a damn toothpick in his mouth.

dharmaboy Says, in 2-29-2012 at 01:39:01 from    

they probably saw his vids and could tell he was going to kill the competition in the house.

jake Says, in 2-29-2012 at 02:06:49 from    

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

cigronne Says, in 2-29-2012 at 03:05:39 from    

Might be the toothpick/the dorky glasses, but after watching this video seems like you gotta be blind to passing up on him

@lowkick, you know your s*** mate, very true,.

steamer Says, in 2-29-2012 at 04:41:55 from    

wow…really made whoever made the ultimate call on that season (prob some douchey producer) look like a real asshole, good job

Goomba Says, in 2-29-2012 at 05:41:57 from    

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.

clemmit Says, in 2-29-2012 at 07:46:28 from    

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.

Mud Helmet Says, in 2-29-2012 at 07:55:20 from    

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.

wow Says, in 2-29-2012 at 11:10:30 from    

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

Newfie Jitsu Says, in 2-29-2012 at 17:14:03 from    

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?

Newfie Jitsu Says, in 2-29-2012 at 17:15:47 from    

^^rough timeline but you get the point lol.

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 f****** am!
