It's just Chris Cope's luck that he would be required to fight Chuck O'Neil, one of the only guys to whom he took a liking on "The Ultimate Fighter 13."

But Cope knows that fighting friends is part of the business, especially on a reality show in which you could end up fighting anyone in the end.

Cope's Team Lesnar teammates weren't jazzed that he hung out with the opposing Team Dos Santos during the reality show's six-week shoot. In fact, they thought he was a spy. But there was a reason he talked to everyone, and it's the same reason he wasn't too fazed about fighting Chuck O'Neil.

He definitely showed improvements but he's no where near ufc caliber. His match with O'neil looked like a sparring session.

Yeah I would say it was 60% Cope improvement, 40% crappy O'Neil. He has alot of work to do. I predicted about half of his strikes.

I think he will be the surprise success this season.

I could see that happening. I think Ramsey will bounce back. Shmar will Lay n pray till he gets to tougher competition, then he will get bounced out.
Ferguson could be ok.

I wasn't too surprised by his win. I thought it was a pretty even matchup that could go either way (I just happened to choose the wrong way!) and that quite a few people were simply giving Chuck too much credit for what he did in the house.
