He's a tough gritty fighter who has come a long way since we fought. He is my only loss in MMA. I would say him being named among these other fighters is not a surprise to me. To top it off, he's a hell of a nice guy with a great team and family.

Didn't Jake Heun lose his fight to get into the house on the season that Kelvin won?

Taleb broke his foot in his fight that he battled like a warrior in, so this is the additional chance they gave him. Not complicated.

Josh Stansburys pro record doesn't reflect his experience. He's been fighting MMA since 05', and went 10-2 as a amateur before turning pro. I'm predicting he could go deep.Matt, I was hoping you could give some insight on how you think he may stack up against this competition being as you have fought him before, albeit was many years ago.

Pat Walsh is the hardest working guy I know, a class act with all the intangibles.
