In case you missed it (and since we’re talking about The Ultimate Fighter, which is now airing on Nickelodeon-4-Infants or the Black Entertainment Television channel or something, you probably did miss it), last night’s episode of TUF 18 saw one of its fighters fail miserably in his attempt to make weight. Cody Bollinger, who’s male and therefore part of the uninteresting half of the current season that often features girls getting beaten up, had to get down to bantamweight for his fight against some dude with impeccable eyebrows. Unfortunately, as he usually fights at heavyweight, Bollinger could not – like, really, he could not. Like, “crying in a bathtub, whimpering in a sauna, moping around on a treadmill” could not. So he gives up. Which led to Dana White lining up all the TUFers and berating Bollinger in front of them before giving him the boot.
(For a synopsis of the episode, go here.)
Did Bollinger screw the pooch? To hear White tell it, the bantamweight-wannabe not only took a dump on his own future, but the future of another fighter who could have made weight and run with the opportunity. Thankfully, we have Twitter to make these judgments for us!
Well now it's out. No excuses and I quit. Couldn't make the weight that day and that's all there is to it. Apologize to Anthony and the UFC

Whatevs, dude. You’re fat.
Of course Roxy is going to be nice.
Sorry, but this guy is just not funny.
Yeah, well, where are you going to be fighting when they’re gone in six months?
