What’s New, Gerald Harris?

From April to June, TUF 7 castmember Gerald Harris was brave enough to guest-blog the “Rampage vs. Forrest” season for CagePotato.com, despite being knocked out of contention by Amir Sadollah in the round-of-16. He sent us this quick update today, to share with all the fans of his posts on our site. Give it a read and don’t be a stranger…

***

Well, I figured that it’s better late than never. I have been in the process of moving to Phoenix, Arizona, so I haven’t had the time to write. I was actually making this move in January and had no idea where I was going to work out. Things didn’t go so well in Oregon financially, so I had to pack up and move in with my momma. It was hard, because I was a pro fighter, 28 years old, college graduate, and I was so poor I had to move in with a parent. Now, this isnt about pride, but I just expected more from myself. Oregon was good to me, I trained with Team Quest and built some lifetime friendships, but I had to move.

I was blessed with the phone call in January from Spike TV/UFC saying that I made the cast for TUF 7! I was so happy and I had prayed for that moment every night — little did I know I had to fight to get in the house. That was the hardest fight, because I actually had something to lose. Once I was in, my loss to Amir was devastating because I felt like I lost everything in that one moment. But I didn’t — I got national TV exposure, built a huge fan base, and got a little UFC experience. I don’t know if you’ve checked the UFC roster, but you ain’t gonna see my name on there right now. Don’t be surprised by that, because I have to work my way back in. I was upset about it at first, but after attending Rampage Camp in California, I see what it takes to be a force in this organization. I’m training harder than ever and my goal is to kick some ass and get back in the UFC. If you want to follow my progress I have a fan forum at UFC.com in The Ultimate Fighter fan section — I have the #1 forum and we talk daily.

I currently live in Phoenix training at Arizona Combat Sports, and I’ll also be fighting in Oklahoma City July 12th, so if you’re in the area come check me out. This is not good bye, but a simple “See ya later” because I will be back! Feel free to hit me up at myspace.com/g1906 and once again, thanks for the support!

Gerald “Hurricane” Harris

Hey City Boxing - he said he left on his own before the show even aired. From what I heard he didn't even know Arizona Combat Sports existed - he was moving their with his mother to get back on his feet financially.

Bummer he had to make the switch from Team Quest Oregon to Arizona Combat Sports. I'd much rather be under the instruction of smelly Matt than CB.

I can't take credit for the Launchpad part, just the glass arm. It was another poster who was brilliant enough to point out the resemblance.

Jeremy May? Is that you?

I'm sorry but Me's name for CB Dollaway made me spit my coffee all over my keyboard.

yeah Gerald is a great guy and i hope to see more of his fights and more blogs, UFC blogs!
dipsouth- July 2, 2008 at 11:15 pm
solid dude, hope he gets his shot again.
Me- July 2, 2008 at 9:50 pm
yea I like Gerald a lot also, it's too bad he has to go work out with a big poster of Launchpad "Glass Arm" McTap on the wall. Oh well I guess it's the place to be if you lose to Amir.
RWhit- July 2, 2008 at 9:14 pm
Yeah, I like Gerald too. I've definitely enjoyed reading his blogs and watching him on the show. I think out of all the people Amir beat, Gerald gave him the most trouble.
Marcel Surette- July 2, 2008 at 8:38 pm
I agree. I 'almost' didn't like Gerald because of the post Amir fight outburst. After I saw him man-up and explain how his emotions got the best of him, he earned my respect back. As a fighter, he's awesome. He's got truck loads of talent.
Jburg- July 2, 2008 at 7:53 pm
I like Gerald. He's a stand up guy and I wish him the best of luck. I'd love to see him fight for the UFC in the future.
