hell yeah i cant wait to see swick at 170 and this ufn sounds great…
Great they give another TUF winner a easy fucking fight. Florian dismantled Robinson with ease. So if Nate wants to act so good he better start asking for some top fighters. Tis is a trend in the UFC. Give the TUF cast easy as fights. I dont want to wait 3 yrs. to see him fight a contender.
hahaha.. i think u got a point with how they do give TUF winners easy fight at first, but i think Alive vs Nate will be a pretty good fight and Alvin is a good fight he beat Jorge Gurgel which is a good fighter..but i do think nate has this in the back then after this fight i hope they give him a real test at 155..
I think Diego Sanchez and Forrest were put in good fights pretty soon after TUF. But Bisping, Rashad, and Stevenson were all pretty much protected until recently.
i would like to see Nate vs Cole miller.. I think that would be a badass fight cause i think miller is just as good or better at stand up and they r both very good with jj from there back.
Diego was put in the ring with Kenflo who sucks at any weight higher than 155 so he lost to nightmare and then he was given Gassaway,who sucks. But after that yeah he was given good fights. And just like diego and all the other TUF fighters Forrest was given back to back easy fights into the UFC. Bill Mahood and then Elivs Sinosic. Like I said they baby them into the UFC. Big build up for more PPV money and sales.$$ Thats all.
steves right… they all get pussys fight for the first 2 or 3 then they start to fight ppl at there skill level..
i can agree with that for the most part. i dont see any way robinson takes out nate diaz. short of a lucky ko punch cuz the guy does have some power.
i want manny to get a rematch with nate he was makin nate look like a chump up until his shoulder blew out he is the true ultimate fighter season5 champ just like matt hamill is the true champ and bisping should ahve to give his contract to him hahaha
− 3 = five
