    Wow, it must really be hard to make a living at MMA if fighters this well known have to live in the UFC house, not getting paid and fighting for free, just to get by.

    Roy is hilarious. I hope he plays up to his image and eats fried chicken, bad food before matches, and drinks tons of beer, then goes out and kicks everyone's asses. hahaha.

    This season should be the most entertaining for sure. I just hope there aren't any fake-fight b.s. or people dropping out because they aren't fit enough to fight. That's the good thing about heavyweights…no issues making weight this coming season! hahaha.

    i dont know if i like this roy nelson has faugh arlovski he shouldnt be on tuf. he should just be fighting in the ufc. and wes sims has way too much experience to be on there. what is this the comeback season? nelson is the favorite for sure and that sucks imo.

    i agree dane, i thought it was for up and comers both these guys are to experienced roy was ifl champ and sims was already in the ufc. is this the comeback season or a cross between? i think it is to kepp kimbo for winning that big contract, nelson could go straight into the ufc and do well.i think it is interesting but not a even playing field.

    Two NFL players?Are they legit or are they just macho duetchbags looking for a new way to look like tough guys? I agree with Roy and Dane. It was kind of entertaining watching the guys that were still pretty fresh in the sport.

    I don't know, I kinda think if they're going to go with Kimbo…if they're going in that direction, then go all the way. It will be more entertaining than watching the seasonal kid who can't make weight, the kid that wants to go home, and the kid everyone hates for being a dick. At least they're bringing in people who want to fight instead of pull pranks and act like morons just to get on TV. These guys are already on TV, so it might be more about the fighting this time. I'm going into it with an open and positive mind.
