One of my gym members is going to try outs. He is around 245 right now, but he's trying to drop to 225 before the casting call, then he'll try to drop that last 20 in time to fight. He if does, I can tell you right now he will be sick. He is amazingly fast, especially on the ground, and this is coming from a 155-pounder.

I don't think they are going to play the 'Lets all watch the extreme weight cutting routine' again. That one was awesome for season 1, but backfired horribly on them for season 2. They are going to pick safer bets. I doubt they are going to pick anyone who hasn't fought in a particular weight class before.

Randy "The Savage" Rowe is trying out. I don't think he's healed up fully but I wish him well.Originally Posted by Canuckyokushin

Chances are he won't pass the physicals. But if he's half as much a psycho in real life as he is on MMA.tv, he'd add a lot of spice to the show.There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)
