Default Good Friend of mine won in TUF!

A Good Friend of Mine, Roxanne won in TUF. Went to High School & College with her, than she graduated & moved to Japan. She's now on Team Tate.

Such a good feeling to see someone you know work so hard & become really successful at what they do. Now I have another reason to follow UFC.

Very cool! I have watched a few people I've trained with at ATT on past TUF seasons as well. It feels great to see anyone succeed at their dreams but especially when you know them more personally.

Some of the people who make it on the show don't have to go to tryouts, some are invited to compete to get in the house based on their fight record. Could be a situation like that

That is cool, she's a really nice person. Has a good heart. Surprised me for a few years, she fell off. Didn't know she went to Japan so lost contact with her for a while. Reinstated my facebook account about a year ago & see what has been going on.

We were all part of the nerdy MMA/Computer Guru group growing up. ;-) Just goes to show, eh? Pretty soon us nerds will run the world.
