Unfortunately, that's about as relevant as it gets for the HW division.
If the show had to be 2 HW's, I don't know who else would be better?

My problem is, why 2 HW's? I think the show needs a complete makeover.
Why not have Rousey and Tate as Coaches, With a bunch of up and cuming chick fighters? Add tons and tons of pillows to the fighter house and fill the pool with Jello instead of water. Then watch the Fur Fly!
I could make this show really fricken interesting if they gave me a chance.

Seriously though. If not an All Female TUF - How about a Co-Ed one, with Men and Women in the house?

The point is, this is a reality show at it's heart. And no reality show with a bunch of dudes is going to be really successful (women outnumber Men like 3:1). The best reality shows and have men and women and sexual tension and love triangles, etc. As a reality show TUF isn't bringing it, and as a fighting show, the fights aren't bringing it. So they need to decide what it is. Is it a reality show or is it a fighting show. right now, it's stuck somewhere in the middle and losing fans from each side instead of bringing in fans from each side.
