Is every TUF winner always getting a title shot?
 
Im not very familiar with the show(ive seen half of the first season only), but i keep reading everywhere that whoever won yesterday is getting a title shot...Im not going to put any opinion on the fighters since i dont know them, but isnt it a bit unfair for any1 already in the ufc?

This preticular season they are competing for a title shot in there proper weight division. nate quarry is the only guy thats got a title shot from tuf and thats after he kncoked out three guys in a row.

In fact it is very unfair to give the winner a title shot. The reason these guys were on this show was because they lost of bunch of fights in the UFC and were about to get canned. It makes absolutely no sense to give any of these guys a title shot. What the prize should have been was that the winner gets one more chance to keep his job, NOT that the winner gets a title shot. What a joke!

It might have been a joke,but it got ratings on SPIKE T.V for the shows. It also gives both these weight classes another title fight for there PPV. I"m not really arguing with you that I disagree that they deserve a shot,but that what the deal that was setup and thus they earned the right to it.

Its no more of a joke than the gimmick fights that PRIDE does.

It definitely got them some ratings, so in that way it was good for MMA. There is no way that I would pay to see any of these winners fight as the main event on a PPV though, unless there was a damn good undercard.

I pretty much agree with that, the winners should have been like all the other shows, you get a chance to climb up the ladder again with a guaranteed contract but the title shot is a little bit overboard and quite frankly a slap in the face for others fighters who I feel have already earned a title shot.
For Example I'm not saying that Koscheck is ready for a title shot but why do these guys get to jump ahead him, Diego is ready and I'm sure there are others I'm forgetting. They could have put in a clause that if the TUF winners won 2 consecutive fights then they would get a title shot or something along those lines.

it is somewhat unfair to all the other fighters that have been racking up wins and fighting for contendership. They now have to take a backseat and continue to wait their turn, when a few of them are arguably already deserving of such a shot.

The concept does make the UFC look a bit gimmicky. But whatever, let these guys have their shot. It may be the last one they ever see, so... best of luck. Nothing against many of the TUF4 fighter, cause some of them are very good, but to cut in line like this might piss off some people.
