I wonder who the scary guy is that is in the house? When I think of a "monster" (As Dana White described him) I imagine a 15-0 wrecking machine, there are a few 6-0s and a few 5-0s.... Anyone heard of any of these guys?
There was something last month stating that a Swedish radio station or something accidently leaked that it's the Swedish dude Tor Troeng

I've heard that the 'scary' guy is Troeng, too.
Otherwise, Bubba McDaniel is pretty decent, as is Cummings. Fekete is a pretty savage wrestler too.
Fighting, writing and mood lighting.

Tor is a very experienced guy to be mixing it on tuf, definitely going to watch this season

Kevin Casey will make an interesting figure, very good BJJ and mental to boot. Only losses to Minowa and Lindland.
shit just looked him up, Minowa was his debut, wow talk about jumping in at the deep end
