As part of Team Lesnar on the 13th season of TUF, Len Bentley was the first pick overall for the show, and again that notion seemed to go to the fighter's head.
From complaining to Brock Lesnar about how teammate Chris Cope may be a mole for Team dos Santos, to telling everyone how he was the best fighter in the house, Bentley was a complete diva.
Yet after all the talk and posing, Bentley would lose in the quarterfinals to Ryan McGillivray by majority decision.
That caused all sorts of excuses, including that he had no support from his team or coach, as Brock Lesnar was away dealing with a personal issue and didn't corner Bentley. He also continued voicing his suspicions that Cope had sold him out to the other team.
Then, when the announcement came for who would be fighting in the wild card, Len was considered to be a sure thing for one of the spots due to his close match. Unfortunately, the spots went to Javier Torres and Chuck O'Neill.
Again feeling like the world was against him, Len confronted Dana White after the announcement, but rather than complaining about not being in the wild card, he asked for a rematch with McGillivray at the season finale.
Dana would retort that neither he nor the coaches felt that he wanted the fight badly enough, though Len felt his fight was evidence to the contrary.
He would continue to stew and pout after being denied, eventually leading to him bashing his coach and his credentials as a fighter, which caused fighters from both teams to get increasingly frustrated with him.
The incessant whining and the initial plea to fight on the finale were most likely the final nail in Bentley's coffin, as he would end up not fighting for the UFC after the season was over, leaving him to fight in regional promotions.
