Justin “The Viking” Wren’s “The Ultimate Fighter 10″ blog – episode 1

By: Justin “The Viking” Wren

TUF 10: Here We Go!

First I want to say thank you to all of my great friends and family who came out to Buffalo Wild Wings in Fort Worth, Texas last night to support me! It was standing room only. I was able to see life-long friends, and I had an absolute BLAST!

For those people that read the introductory blog, you will know that I have wanted to fight in the UFC since I was a 13 year old kid, sneaking UFC 1-10 into my house and hiding them under my bed! This is all surreal to me, and I am fortunate beyond belief to be fighting for a living, and to have the tremendous amount of supporters I have in my life! Thank you so much to everyone, and thank you to PROMMA.INFO for giving me this opportunity to blog.

The Ultimate Fighter 10 Spotlight: Jon Madsen – PROMMA.INFO exclusive interview

As the tenth season of the UFC’s hit reality series The Ultimate Fighter gets underway this week on Spike TV, you will see some very large men all competing for a chance to win a contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

One of these large heavyweights is six-foot 240-pound Jon Madsen. He is a little different than most guys who come on the show. Madsen lives in The H.I.T. Squad fighter dorms, so transferring into a house full of fighters where he has to share the bathroom and kitchen was not a huge adjustment.

The Ultimate Fighter 10 spotlight: Scott Junk – PROMMA.INFO exclusive interview

Scott Junk is a TUF 10 heavyweight.

The tenth season of Spike TV’s reality show The Ultimate Fighter debuts on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2009. This season entitled “Heavyweights” features 16 of the biggest and toughest men not only in MMA but on the planet. One of these men is 30-year-old Scott Junk from Kailua, Hawaii.

PROMMA.INFO recently spoke with Scott to learn more about his story. Scott talked to us about how he got involved with MMA, his first pro fight which just happened to be against a former UFC champion, how he ended up on The Ultimate Fighter, and what makes this season special. I even tried to trick him into revealing if he made it to the finals. However, he explains just how hefty a fine a fighter would be hit with if they revealed the show’s outcome before it aired.
