Diamond Dave Kaplan Makes An Entrance

Here is TUF 8's "Diamond" Dave Kaplan making his entrance to fight Junie Browning at the TUF 8 Finale. On the show, Kaplan, then 4-1, made it into the house by submitting Fernando Bernstein, then 2-0, now 4-8. His MMA career took a nose dive after that, as he would be submitted by Philipe Nover in the next round of the tournament. He then challenged 205 pounder Tom Lawlor to punch him as he believed he could never be knocked out, that didn't go well. His final bout of his career was a 2010 TKO loss to Dominque Robinson, finishing his career at 3-4.

*Kaplan would not be done with the spotlight, as he won $50,000 on the television show, "The Singing Bee."
