I said quite a while ago that TUF needed serious overhauling because there are no real prospects left that no one knows aboout. Not to mention TUF is pretty much for drama not talent anymore.
I started a thread with a few ideas I had. They actually are going to have live fights now, which is cool, but here is what it said.
Also this would be a great way to introduce fighters to casual fans. Think about what a guy like Phil Davis would do on a TV show like that, people would love him. His notoriety goes up, sales go up. You no longer have to try to figure out a good way to sell a talented prospect to the mainstream audience. If they watch him for 12 weeks on TV and they like him, chances are they'll buy the PPV. It's just taking the "coaches fighting" concept and multiplying it by 16.
I would'nt say that TUF has no talent. This season has some really good talent. Maybe not Champion material but maybe in time.
I think a WW season would be great. And these changes will do TUF well.
