Victim of its own success?
Is the UFC now becoming a victim of its own success?, I think it could go that way, i mean look somebody can get a title shot after winning a reality show!, I respect those fighters but surely isnt it about time that the UFC set a standard to be met before a title shot? e.g x amount of wins rather than a popularity contest. What are your feelings/opinions?

I think it'll be ok. The guys that won those shows, for the most part (the first season are the ones geting the breaks and that's been awhile now) are beating people. Griffin has had good fights and Sanchez hasn't lost, what more can they do? It's not like Rashad or the hawaiian kid from season 3 have title shots.

I think the UFC is running out of ideas on who should get a title shot! Matt Hughes has nearly beaten every elite in his division! The same with Rich Franklin. Because these guys aren't losing, It was only a matter of time before the UFC started looking at the bottom of the barrell to fight Rich and Matt! TUF 4 is just an easy way of deciding which underdog gets a title shot!

I just think its weird when someone has 3 fights or around that figure and get a title shot. That is one are where i think boxing has the better setup when its not abused.

You should have to have a good foundation and record as a UFC fighter, and after that they should have three to five fights with extremely good fighters that have had their title shot and lost, get through those fighters and you get your shot loose and start all over again!
