I've only seen 1 of his fights before but it looked like wrestling was one of his main strengths. It'll be interesting to see how it compares to this guys.

Can anyone tell me more about Pendred's fighting style? Looks like he got matched up with a pretty good wrestler for next week.

This has potential to be one of the best seasons ever. 2 of the most exciting divisions in MMA where there is real potential for devastating finishes, and the hilarity of Penn and Coleman, hard to imagine what could make this suck.

I love BJ but his strategy thus far is interesting. He didn't know he got the 1st fight after Frankie got the 1st pick.

I'm just half way through it now. That Poppie guy seemed like a freak. He would've been funny if he got in the house.And that guy blondie/albino guy, Gabel I think his name was looked like the stalker guy from the movie The Bodyguard. How did Cathal Pendred get through without fighting? It's hard to believe that they couldn't find 1 other fighter that was willing to fight him. Nothing against Pendred, Im glad he made it but it just seems a bit weird that he didn't have to fight.I think I'll actually watch this series. They picked good weight classes this season. There also seems to be a great mix of good characters and also some unintentionally funny characters.

Haha. When I see Dana's face in that gif I for some reason think. Oh god, yes more money.
