hind sight is always 20/20, and he is the champ now like he said he would be. but i dont know if i would have picked him based on that video.
the show is obviously about drama and characters, and he looks like a bit of a dork in the video. his fight clips are great, but the glasses/toothpick combo are pretty hilarious. on a show that was for pure fighting, yes. but tuf is 90% in the house and his personality doesnt come across well in those clips.
and he lists his opponents and training partners as "UFC Veterans" but then names names I have never heard of. Im sure stuff like that just makes the producers/UFC shake their heads while watching audition tape after audition tape.
