The Ultimate Fighter is basically a way for the UFC to see a lot of fighters at once and see who isn't at UFC level yet but has potential
If the UFC thought you were that good, they would give you a contract straight away.
I can't remember which fighter said that the UFC told him to not go through TUF because he was better than that. Anyone able to help me out?
PS I suggest everyone watches The Smashes, it's been a really good series so far.
