I don't expect any other shows to provide as many genuinely talented fighters as TUF 1 has but it should at least be close. Don't get me wrong, the other TUFs have provided some talent but nowhere near the amount of TUF 1.
I think alot of it has to do wth the growth of the UFC was at a pivotal point and they were launched into the mainstream with Forrest / Bonnar and the Diego fight.....

They grew the company, I think there has been a slight decline in talent sought out since the show started...

Good thread.....There are guys that may be beter in 4 yrs from now from the show, but who really....Bader to me happens to imo be one of the better guys that has come out.......Jardine is decent, but not a serious contender, obviously Rashad is a good fighter and I feel bisping has had a padded schedule of opponents on purpose....

EDIIT: Grove, Nate Diaz and Maynard are good fighters imho.....the rest are sub....and grove is slipping....
