Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Poll: Who Is the Least Likable Contestant in ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ History? [UPDATED w/Results]

(Don’t worry, Julian, at least this moment was not forever immortalized by the power of the internet. That would be *super* embarrassing.) 

If BG’s recaps are any indication, this season’s The Ultimate Fighter appears to be void of most of the fabricated, frat boy drama that has plagued countless seasons before it, opting rather for a more straightforward, yet stylistic focus on the fights themselves. And while TUF has undoubtedly matured after some 17 seasons, that isn’t to say that the show has completely rid itself of the kind of unsightly characters reality television oft shines a light on. This season’s Julian Lane is none other than Robert “Bubba” McDaniel, a relentless a-hole who thus far has both bashed teammate Gilbert Smith for being mentally weak the day before he was scheduled to fight and unsuccessfully attempted to troll Kevin Casey into a fight using tactics usually saved for elementary school playgrounds (or the comments section of BloodyElbow).

So while a few of us were discussing McDaniel’s douchiness in the comments section of our latest recap, we (we being ReX) got to thinking: Who was the least likable fighter in TUF History?

After the jump lies a poll with the most obvious offenders (Browning, Lane, Koscheck the participant, Koscheck the coach, etc.) for you to choose from, along with an “Other” option in case you feeling like calling out some of the lesser-known but equally offensive jackwagons to enter the TUF household. I cannot stress enough that I have never entered the TUF household. I’ll announce the results at some point tomorrow, because I do what I want, when I want. OK, you can include me as an option for that statement alone.


With 33.9% of the vote, TUF 8 alum and terrorizer of Taiwanese townspeople Junie Browning shall henceforth be known as the most reprehensible scoundrel in the long line of reprehensible scoundrels to have paraded through the halls of TUF manor.

In a distant second place, none other than TUF 16′s Julian Lane with 25% of the votes, which just edged out the combination of coach/participant Josh Koscheck (24.9%).

In the “Other” category, TUF 1s Bobby Southworth collected 14 of 95 votes, somewhat ironically edging out “fatherless bastard” (his words, not mine) Chris Leben, who took in 10 votes. And to the scholar who wrote-in TUF 7′s  Luke Zachrich for the sake of obscurity, congratulations. Game recognizes game.

Also, Jeremy "BAMF" May is missing from that list. That guy was an uber douche.

Junie got sober and sounds like he's actually getting his life back on track.
DARKHORSE06- February 14, 2013 at 2:33 pm
It would be awesome if John McAfee could host a bath salt fueled think-tank comprised of the finest minds in MMA. Junie Browning, Nick Diaz, Ken Shamrock, Tito Ortiz, and Quinton Jackson, could argue over estuation tube "equidibium," the inability of women to lose water weight, and their shared love of big ole titties.

On a related topic CP, not sure if you've done a "Dumbest Motherfucker in MMA" thread yet, but my vote goes to Nick "The Atom Splitter" Diaz.

No Matt Mitrione? Pretty douschefull.
ctastrophe- February 14, 2013 at 12:03 pm
Koscheck "Bro, you're a MALE NURSE" x 1000 got a little irritating.

Remember when Gabe kept eating birthday cake during his weight cut?
KungfuJaysus- February 14, 2013 at 8:16 am
Ken Shamrock was a complete tard as a coach. I had liked him up to that point. Junie Browning should have been shot. Julian was Fukn pathetic as a human. What an embarrassment. If Chris Leben didn't make the potential list and he pissed all over a dudes bed, that says a lot.

James McSweeney.

It's seriously hard to choose when there have been so many worthless people on this show.
LOKI- February 14, 2013 at 5:21 am
This is like the "Sophie's Choice" of douchebags.
Thumblaster- February 14, 2013 at 4:18 am
You can't blame kimbo for the producers hyping him , kimbo seemed alot cooler than I thought he was going to be. Junie browning gets my vote.
smellypiratehooker- February 14, 2013 at 1:00 am
I would have to pick Koschek(coach) purely on the fact that he had more combined screen time already banking douche hours being a contestant.
Coupled with his flagrent closest homosexuality and meathead atitude, he would have to win even on Adalaide Byrd's score cards.
mDino- February 13, 2013 at 10:05 pm
Remember the time when junie browning cracked an egg on that guys chest and the guy could have mauled him but didn't?
mDino- February 13, 2013 at 10:02 pm
I would rather be the DD for junie and julians birthday bash than spend 5 minutes in a room alone with Matt secor.
1Jackal- February 13, 2013 at 9:40 pm
Kimbo Slice!! Everyweek you had to hear about his hype even though he lost the first fight
MoTropolis- February 13, 2013 at 9:10 pm
The moment you decided to include Koscheck a second time as a joke, you should have renamed the survey "Least like-able Cast Members, instead of "Contestants". Its like fucking amateur hour around here.
dranokills- February 13, 2013 at 8:55 pm
Junie all the way. hes the only one to distress Dana White so bad he has to ask the fighters to "beat him off".
Mr_Misanthropy- February 13, 2013 at 8:36 pm
I can't decide. There were just too many. Rudeniger, Lane, Meathead, Browning, Wang, Rampage, Pissbing, Shamrock, and many other perfectly forgettable anonymous nobodies certainly top the list.
ReX13- February 13, 2013 at 7:04 pm
No War Machine, no JT Money, no Matt Serra, no Samman ... there's lots of possible write-ins here.
Deadpanda- February 13, 2013 at 7:03 pm
I can't pick between the Afro (Yager) & the Meth Hobbit (Browning).
El Famous Burrito- February 13, 2013 at 6:52 pm
No Bruce Leroy? This must be Rex's doing. Fuck that guy and his Webster-esque name, his homemade jumpsuit, and his permanent Please-Kick-Me-In-The-Face Grin
ReX13- February 13, 2013 at 7:01 pm
ha ha not my call man. pinkie swear
abcd1234- February 13, 2013 at 6:30 pm
Isn't Gabe Ruediger that asshole who had a tube inserted in his anus twice and didn't even make weight because he ate cake all day? Lol.
beef_kurtains- February 13, 2013 at 6:14 pm
Josh Koscheck the coach and Josh Koscheck the fighter should be isolated in a house together for 6 weeks. Oh man, what a series that would be to watch. They would have to lay on each other 6 times, until the series finale when they would attempt to demonstrate their improved striking by outjabbing each other until their eyes closed and they'd have to feel for the blonde fro in an effort to continue.

Nevermind...I'm out on that series.
