    I think Efrain will be able to hang for a while, and I think that if Vinny gets it together and starts sticking to a game plan in his fights (use the jits) then he could probably do well. Nover needs to find a good camp and start training his wrestling. If he can get a little more well rounded then he may be able to make a small mark on the division.

    dnt give a fuck wut anyone says, junie is the shit. if he fought the way he did at the finale, i think he'd be tuf 8 champ. better striking than efrain thats for sure.

    i think Efrain, Nover, Junie, Vinny, Elliot, and maybe Krystof(sp)

    I just think that Junie will straighten up and really tighten his game up if he sticks with Couture. I see Bader maybe being around for a minute, but I think he fades out. He didn't really impress me any. If Vinny would have thrown his kicks any at all, Bader would have lost that fight IMO. Efrain looked really good and well rounded. Nover, after he works on his wrestling, will be a well rounded force. I really like Elliot to stick around. He looks very good and has a good head on his shoulders man. Krystof looks good, but he seems to rely alot on striking and his striking is not on the level of most in his division.

    Wanna bet on that?

    Junie has the unorthodox striking of a Boxer, and when at his best is a force, def impressed with his latest ground work. If he was the fighter he was last week against Efren he would have won that fight & been in the finals.

    Junie will be around for a long time to come, as long as he stays off the drinking and stays focused he has the talent to become something.

    Bader is gonna be a force to be reckoned with out of any of them and throughout the season, I think he seems to be the most focused and promising. He just seems like a freak.

    I'll give Browning a chance because he has shown some potential at times, but I think he needs to take a trek to WEC for a while to gain some more maturity before he's in the octagon with a Griffin or Diaz.

    I like Krystof, but i'm not so sure he's good enough to be in the UFC at LHW, his record is very unimpressive against a lot of guys who have themselves, been outcasts of UFC. Other than Alexander and possibly Irvin, here aren't many top 15 or 20 LHW I'd rank him above. Wish him all the best, but don't know if he isn't just a really likable tv star.
    Wasn't too impressed with that many others on the show, except for
