Today's News reports that Jason Guida, aka the only dude to not make weight for the TUF show last night, has signed on to fight with Elite XC.....interesting side note, a 10 lb weight cut is not uncommon in the sport and for his health to be at risk tells me that he probably came in much heavier than the 217 that he initially weighed in what I am saying is he probably was pretty dried out when he started that cut at 217...either way, have the contestants on TUF never seen the show before or do they just assume that making weight is not required?
