Apparently Junie's brother is a replacement for someone.

Also who is the black fighter so I can root for him?

This is a complete guess but I think DeMarques Johnson sounds like a safe bet to be a dark fella.

You'll probably get more mileage out of Dean Ama___ (seen it spelled 3 different ways), or Winner if you don't mind mulattos.

Other notes:
- I need to hit up Wyatt to ask him about the usual crop of Ohio dudes on the show.
- Alex Reid getting wrecked is always good fun.
- Josh Souder via epic beard.

Something from the post-UFC 96 WOR that relates to this season, brought up when talking about the refereeing fiasco, is that at some point in this season there is a Mazzagatti reffed fight that has a 'really really bad' late stoppage.

If I had to guess I'd say it was more anti-GSP then pro-Serra talk from HSJ.

It put Serra on the map and promoted the Long Island/NYC MMA/BJJ scene, but also caused a lot of drama. Plus, he knocked out GSP. How could I not love that?

Early favorites (IMO):

Team U.S.A.

Welterweight: The Hellhouse/Gilbert Grappling/Midwest Training Center/whatever boys (Miller & Knabjian)
Lightweight: Wyatt has absolutely no faith in any of the Ohio guys this season, so I'll say DeFranco just because.

Team U.K.

Welterweight: Amarasinghe & Wilks
Lightweight: Winner

I'll probably have a better idea of who to favor once I see how they handle themselves in the prelims.

Is this gonna be a fight to get on style like the last couple, or did they go back to the old format?

I don't think this season's that interesting, the national pride thing works in a "hey remember the revolutionary war?" kind of way. There's no big talk like there was for that guy that got beat by Efrain (IMG:http://forums.thesmartmarks.com/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) , I haven't heard stories of any major shit and Junie's brother interests me about as much as Junie. So, not at all.

Hell even Henderson/Bisping sounds like a boring fight. Hopefully the fights on the show make up for it.
