"Since I'm in his hometown and I feel very bad about what I'm going to do... For weigh ins I brought him a little something. I hope he appreciates it."
Gabe Ruediger makes it clear to Heavy.com that he's willing to have a little fun with the lowest moment of his career. Ruediger is the sport's most prominent cake eating fighter, famously being clowned on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 5 for eating an ice cream cake while struggling to make weight. When big Gabe couldn't make the cut, Dana White did, sending him packing from the house and from the UFC. Three and a half years later, Ruediger is finally getting a second chance against reality show teammate Joe Lauzon. Does Ruediger have what it takes to beat Lauzon? Or is this a one and done UFC appearance by a reality show washout?
