The majority of criticism aimed towards The Ultimate Fighter reality series over the years — aside from that involving love juice and other bodily fluids — has concerned the lack of talent depth. We all have our own opinions on the situation, but one thing is for sure: the potential cast of heavyweights for the tenth installment of the show looks impressive.
Rex Richards is an early favorite to win the whole thing. The former Colts lineman boasts an impressive six first round victories in seven tries, with the only defeat coming at the hands of current top contender Shane Carwin. Richard’s opponents tend to go to sleep when he connects, just like my girlfriend when we have sex. He started his career as a super heavyweight and — like Carwin and current champ Brock Lesnar — has to cut weight to make the heavyweight limit of 265 pounds. Most people who weigh that much need assistance wiping their own asses, yet this guy is cage fighting.
Another highly touted heavyweight prospect that should make the final cut and be a heavy favorite once the tournament starts is Chris Tuchscherer. In addition to having an incomprehensible last name, the North Dakota native holds a professional record of 17-1, with 13 of those victories ending within the distance. Did I mention he trains with Lesnar on a daily basis? The fact that “The Tush” is able to hold his own with the UFC heavyweight champion speaks volumes about his abilities.
Former pro wrestler Bobby Lashley is also considering entering the TUF house. Lashley is so big that if he were mistaken for a buffalo by a pack of Comanche indians, an entire family would be able to live inside of his carcass throughout the winter months and stay warm. While he only has two bouts thus far, his wrestling background, size, and athleticism make him a tough fight for anyone.
