Just couldn't tell you from the names. I can't remember that fight from one of the seasons where that guy cut like 28lbs and won his fight. He went through some brutal work to get there and he pulled that one out of his ass with a KO I think. Don't really remember if the fight was good. . .but I remember it was a hell of an effort.
    Yea, I think he misunderstood my question. Anyways wouldn't the most successful TUF fighter be Matt Serra? Not a true TUFer but he did get a belt!

    But anyways, off the top of my head

    Edwin DeWees Vs. Gideon Ray

    Ray lands a huge elbow from the bottom and DeWees bleeds a ton throughout the fight. Went 3 rounds too. DeWees dominatet, but Ray got some nice reversals and had top position for a few minutes. Pretty good scrap.

    Luke Cummo Vs. Anthony Torres

    Both guys stood and banged. Good stand up war.

    That's all I could think of really.

    I couldn't get over what a weirdly shaped head Sell has. I never noticed it before, but his head is very neanderthal-like. I had a good laugh at that.

    As for the best fight, I can't really remember the details of most, but that Dewees fight was a good one.
    Very true. That was a nice gesture on the part of Hughes. I'm sure some of Serra's guys didn't care, but I'm sure some did.

    Brings up an interesting question.

    Who is the most successful TUF fighter. Let's throw out season 4, because those guys had fought in the UFC before and that season didn't truly epitomize what TUF is about.

    Your answer, Diego Sanchez makes sense. But what about Joe Stevenson(poised for a title shot) or Rashad Evans. I think you could make a case for those guys or even Forrest Griffith.

    Fedor signs with some Russian MMA organization?

    Hopefully it's not true but this blows.

    As I've said before, I don't know a hell of a lot about most of the Pride fighters, including Fedor. However, if this is true, it really does blow. Having said that, if it is true, Fedor is running away from the best competition in the world. I'm not saying the UFC is the be all end all, but it certainly is the #1 MMA org right now with the best overall collection of heavyweights.

    Who the heck is Fedor gonna fight in this crappy Russian org? I've read countless threads/stories singing this guy's praises about how he is the best heavyweight in the world, bar none. Well, he had a chance to prove it, and he's running away, most likely because Dana wouldn't sign his buddies.

    Granted I don't know the reasons behind this decision, but other than money and allowing his friends to fight, what can M-1 really offer Fedor? I just don't get it.

    Fedor's either scared or his handlers are stupid.

    I won't believe it until I see it from a legit source. Either way, you're not going to impress me as a Heavyweight booking matches against guys lighter than you and eeking out a win (Lindland)

    competitors go where the competition is

    Been hearing about this for a couple weeks now. To be honest, this sounds like Fedor (and his handlers) trying to make a few extra bucks.

    From what I've read, M-1 was/is owned by Fedor's manager and he's going to be one of the main beneficiaries of this if it goes down. They more or less sign someone they already own. The real odd thing is that the only other fighters they have under contract are other Red Devil fighters. I'm not sure what they're hoping to do here though. Sign a bunch of scrubs for him to beat up on in Russia? I don't know who the "donor" was that gave more money to the promotion, nor why they'd do that. Seems like a really poor decision considering the circumstances of this "organization".

    It's on Sherdog now. Probably the most legit source there is.

    I watch the IFL also, looks like they've been doing some good shooting of their feet as well

    -Ben Rothwell and Mike Whitehead not in the Grand Prix and not signed
    -Frank Shamrock fired and his team dissolved
