His other favorite meal was just plain mayonnaise sandwiches and he never eats vegetables. It really makes you wonder if diet is truly all that important? An interesting match-up to say the least."

    Should put Tommy, Luke Cummo, and Gabe all together and see what kind of diner table they'd have.

    Tommy has got one fucking heart to not tap out from his first or second fight. I was impressed with that. His gnp is alright, but what he really needs to work on is his striking. Dana was 100% right. The kid is only 22, if he trains at a really nice camp, he can do some serious damage to his future opponents. Regardless of whether he wins or not (which I know he probably won't; he isn't well-rounded enough at this point), I'd say he belongs in the UFC. His career has pratically just started, and I'd love to see more of him in the future.

    I like Tommy. Decent guy it seems. Who ever said his fights are exciting until he gets ground control is pretty much spot on.

    On a more positive note, I'm just happy he beat Ben. What a tool.

    Tommy was kind of funny in his post fight interview. What did he say exactly? "The armbar was tight, but I just decided to stick it out and see if it'd break or not......"

And given great trainning, and a good camp, he could be trouble down the road.

    Arroyo said that "Technique always beats strength" and he is right, but heart and balls can take you a long, long way in this sport.
    And you can learn technique.

    You can't learn heart.

    anyone see anything technically wrong with how ben had the armbar applied?

    perhaps his knees should have been closer together? lol
    ....and his feet were crossed.....

    Dana did say that "with the right camp" Speers could be a force. He has the physical tools. He just needs the sculpting. But Speers needs to hook up with a Couture-type camp. Not H.I.T. I can see Hughes grabbing Speers and making him a reincarnation of himself. Not saying that hooking up with Hughes would be all bad, I just think there are other camps out there more well-rounded than Hughes'.

Anyone who relies on his strength so much to get himself out of trouble so often will never contend for a title shot in the 170lb division. Maybe one day after he takes enough embarassing losses to learn to submission game but not anytime in the near future.

    I'm just curious to see what other people think about Speers and his potential.
    Speers is just a young Sherk, right now he so inexperienced you can't judge him.
    Although I don't like wrestlers who just Snug n' Hug no one wants to see boring ground fights, and I think thats all he's gonna to be...

    He'll keep smashing until someone nasty gets a hold of him on the ground. Maybe Jorge
