Season 8 was the last LHW season,
Ryan Bader, Jules Bruchez, Kyle Kingsbury, Shane Primm, Tom Lawlor, Vinny Magalhães, Eliot Marshall, Krzysztof Soszynski, Antwain Britt, Lance Evans, Karn Grigoryan, Jason Guida, Ryan Jimmo, Ryan Lopez, Eric Magee, Sean O'Connell, Mike Stewart.
They don't do those seasons for two reasons
1. The fights are terrible.
2. The talent pool is too shallow, if you are good enough to make it on the show you are good enough for a shot in the UFC.
Ah tuff 8 slipped my mine,, (for shame Ryan bader is a fav of mine).
We've seen shallow pitful talent pools from tuffs before.
The henderson vs Bisping season for example. The winner from 170 was pitful. Ross Person just lost to a guy who lost to Jens Pulver (the 155 winner).
So why can't we have a heavier tuff? Are you really telling me Ryan bader and Vinny what's his face aren't as talented as say MAc danzig? Seriously?
