    That is indeed “The Detroit Superstar” Daron Cruickshank at the end.

    Dude’s a stud and can win the show if he’s at his best.

    Exciting fighter. Great to see.

    Detroit Superstar is wicked nickname! Being live should be interesting! Don’t think the coaches are boring maybe people don’t want to see the match up again but I think Cruz and Faber will go back an forth for 6 weeks and have another close 5 round fight.

    Are you sure it’s on Sportsnet in Canada? On commercials today on the Prelims show, it stated that the show will be on FX Canada, which isn’t available in most of the country…

    If I’m not mistaken Sportsnet has the Canadian rights to most if not all UFC content that airs on Fox, FX and Fuel TV in the US!

    Full cast revealed:

    A couple familiar names in there: Chris Saunders (fought Horodecki in Bellator), Cristiano Marcello (choked out Krazy Horse backstage in Japan), Myles Jury (was on TUF 13 but blew out his knee early on) & the previously mentioned Cruickshank.

    No Canadians made it on this season.

    UPDATE: From

    “TUF 15 debuts on Friday, March 9 and will feature live fights each week. It will be broadcast live on FX Canada and will be replayed later on all Sportsnet regional channels. (The premiere is scheduled to air on Sunday, March 11 (check local listings).”

    This is what Showdown Joe said when I asked him about TUF 15 being live.

    “To my understanding, FX Canada has the rights to the first airing then Sportsnet can air right afterwards. This isn’t written in stone, but based on what I know of the industry, this is usually how it plays out in these types of scenarios.”

    If you’re bothered by Dakota than you’re an idiot.
    And the fact that you’re talking about his past like it has anything to do with his fighting ability proves that itself. Dakota has done more recently than many of the Canadian’s that tried out. Not to diss my Canadian brothers or anything, but I don’t care what you put in your bum so long as you can throw down, and the beatdown Dakota put on Jamie Varner proves he belongs in the UFC.

    Dakota is one of my favourites to win the show, him, krause, Jury, Tuck or Cruickshank.

    And people should take note that the lack of Canadian’s is very possibly due to them working on a TUF: Canada which I would assume LW would be a class in because it’s stacked in Canada and for some reason the UFC doesn’t like heavier classes on TUF. So guys like Kajun, Ricci and such would likely end up on their.

  22. Donald Duck says:

    Donnie loves how the first thought most guys have when they hear someone else is the ghey is, “He better not try to f**k me!” It is more telling than anything else and usually means that this is the guy who walks into a bar and looks at all the women in there and thinks, “I’d like to f**k all these women!”

    Anywho, Dakota is a stud and I’m going to echo Booboo’s thoughts in that you’re probably going to be more worried about him smashing your face than fantasizing about your @ss.

    Wow we got some good mma fans here ” Dakoota is one of my favs to win the show” haha that fight was super GAY, tried a takedown for three minutes and got stuffed by a boxer. Heres another good quote ” He belongs in the UFC” hahahah,If you guys were any closer to his cock youd be his balls, Dont worry Ryan and Donald and boo boo, your former cast member is headed back to broke back mountain now.

  25. I had Dakota pegged to be a contender for this season before any of that stuff from his past came up. (Last season I had Micah Miller pegged as a contender also)

    I couldn’t care less about that, as it’s not fight related, I’ve known of him for years, and have watched him progress as a dangerous fighter over the years.

    This won’t be the last anybody hears of Dakota Cochrane.
