    Who is he fighting at CW?

    Hopefully its a step up in competition, going by Sherdog, the combined record of the guys he has fought in his three pro fights is 15-76, the guy is clearly a huge talent but it would be good for him to be given a bit more of a test, no disrespect intended to Lawrence or any of the guys he has fought.

    Whats happening with paul mcveigh seems to have been out ages. I know he was dropping a weight class but seems to have went quiet all of a sudden ?

    I heard Nick Osipczak was making a comeback. Hope it's true as he's one of the most exciting fighters in the UK.
    If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

    Adam Stevenson is fighting K1 on the Headhunters show I think soon

    Dean Caldwell is coaching at New Life gym with Davie Galbraith. Think last time out he was injured and had to get checked over by the docs, not sure on his progress with that.

    John Quinn I heard was going to drop to LW but not heard much since that and that was a while back

    Scott Ward was in Canada last I knew so think his fighting was put on the backburner

    Danny Henry got injured and had to pull out of the same K1 tourny that Adam Stevenson was in I believe

    Scott ward fought and won in Canada last year. Still training.

    Dave Faulkner is coaching up north - I think at HAMMA but not sure if that's permanent or he's just doing classes at their gym. Heard whispers of a comeback fight late last year.

    Stapes is still with Bellator, and coaching a really good amateur squad at FCPC in Rochdale. Some beasts coming out of that gym.

    Jeff Lawson and Dean Amasinger haven't fought for a while but are both coaching. Dean was the S&C coach for Ross Pearson on The Smashes. Not sure if either has officially retired from fighting.

    Andre Winner is fighting in the upcoming AON 15k tourney.

    James Wilkes is still running his Lightning MMA gym in Cali. Interestingly I believe Wilkes was the first regular TUF winner to be cut from the UFC.

    Ross is the only remaining cast member in the UFC.

    Of the US guys...off the top of my head - Cameron Dollar is still fighting on the US regional circuit. Lost on one of the early WSOF cards last year. Pretty sure Richie Whitson fought for the MFC title and came up short. He just broke a bit of a losing streak late last year. Jason Dent retired in 2012, but was going to have a comeback fight late last year...ended up being canceled though. Frank Lester is still training but hasn't fought for a while, and Mark Miller retired from MMA a while back.

    James ended up retiring because the doctors told him he'd risk paralysis if he continued fighting.
    He had a few fights lined up after UFC 120 where he lost to Claude Patrick but he had to pull out due to injury.
    He was one of the last interviews I did when I was writing.

    Also I think the first TUF winner to get cut was Travis Lutter but I get what you're saying about him not being the first 'regular' TUF winner not to get axed. That was Efrain Escudero.

    Caldwell is pretty much retired and competes in kettle bell comps now.
