Former TUFer Has Been Bad – Very Bad

Maybe you remember Kyacey Uscola from his stint on TUF – TUF 11 to be exact – or maybe you don’t, as his performance was utterly forgettable.

Did Yoel Romero crap his shorts while fighting Derek Brunson last night? If so… uh, gross. If not, well, that’s okay, because Tim Sylvia, Kevin Randleman and Dave Menne all did in the Octagon at one point, so we can laugh at them.
