Are you guys concerned about the FOX ultimate fighter?
What are your thoughts with the spike ultimate fighter? It sais in the article above that all seasons will be 24 episodes, with all fights being aired live.
My concerns, (or ideas on how it could turn out). FOX is extremely rating based, so they might take the nbc route and chop up the fights like they did with the contender. Also voting for who fights is awsome, but seems very american idol.
Dana will more than ever be pushing fighters to finish, and you can never rule out the idea of greasy fox executives having some control over the outcome. I also hope they are very carefull with the fighter selection, and still try to pick talented fighters, not reality show stars. So many mma D-bags might get way to big to fast.
on the other hand there are some posotive aspects. What do you guys think?
