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...".
It wasn't even that.

They actually had a lot of great guys try out.

Amossou tried out, Galvao, Lopez from Wand's team, and various others.

They are just utterly incompetent at picking fighters for it.

I mean seriously, I've seen videos of the first thing they do is a 2 minute grappling session, they give 1000 dollars to anyone who gets a sub, and they make cuts right after that without them showcasing any wrestling or striking.
