Name: Mike Wessel
Trains: Westside Fight Team
Prediction: First Round
Wessel is one of the three UFC veterans to be featured on this season of the Ultimate Fighter. At UFC 92 Wessel was tapped as a late replacement to face Antoni Hardink. Wessell lost that fight and was axed from the UFC. The former UFC fighter trains in Arkansas at Westside Fight Team under the tuteldige of Rolando Delgado.
Wessel could surprise some people on the show, but he is in no way a favorite to win. In my opinion, Wessel would be lucky to win one fight in the house, but his well rounded skills could net him one victory if the pairing is right. With a very talented cast Wessel may have a tough time against the size of some of the fighters. Don’t expect Wessel to be a puchover, however as he should be about a middle of the pack guy for this season.
