I agree, but here's the thing...
If you were an accomplished fighter with lots of wins outside of the UFC, would you really consider going on TUF? I sure as hell wouldn't. It's got a real bad stigma nowadays and I doubt any good fighter would want to be on TUF. [To this day I still believe they handpicked Nelson to be on TUF just so they could make sure Kimbo wouldn't win the whole thing.]
Even the winner is screwed in my view. When I hear Bruce Buffer announce the "TUF Season whatever winner" my mind goes "Not another one of those...".
