The ultimate fighter used to bring us fighters like

Forrest Griffin
Stephan Bonnar
Mike Swick
Josh Koscheck
Kenny Florian
Nate Quarry
Chris Leben

Joe Stevenson
Luke Cummo
Mike Whitehead
Marcus Davis
Keith Jardine
Rashad Evans

Kendal Grove
Ed Herman
Michael Bisping

Gray Maynard
Matt Wiman
Joe Lauzon
ROB EMERSON!! (1 of the top P4P fighters to ever walk the earth)

Nate Diaz
Manny Gamburyan
Cole Miller

and others...

Its fact that the talent in TUF has dropped drastically. They used to go for people with credentials and talent and they obviously wanted to fight for more then just the fame or TV. Now a days they go for personality and thats really it. Iv seen some of them have more losses on their record then wins. I think i saw someone with a 0-0 record. And some guys are there strictly for TV. They dont even look disappointed when they lose.

We are lucky if we get 1 or 2 fighters that maybe have potential.
1. Some of those fighters UFC records are hardly successful
Mike Whitehead 0-1
Kendell Grove 7-6
Luke Cummo 3-4
Joe Stevenson 8-8
Ed Herman 7-6
Manny Gamburyan 3-5

2. Siler, Dodson, Johnson, Brookins, Caceres, Nijem, Ferguson, Dillashaw, and Bermudez are all closing in on top ten rankings/title shots.

3. Season 1 was filled with fighters that would have been signed anyways.

4. Amir Sadollah had a 0-0 record when he competed on the show, he beat Gerard Harris, CB Dollaway, and Matt Brown three UFC caliber fighters. Amir is still in the UFC BTW so I guess he doesn't suck that much.
