I hate to respond to Sideways because at this point he's just trolling or being ignorant because I doubt he even watches UFC fights at this point.

Jonathan Brookins fought Erik Koch right before Koch got his title shot. If you watched the fight he held Koch against the fence and could have gotten the win for controlling him for three rounds.

Alex Carares should be 3-0 at BW if you watched the fights he's been fairly dominant. Herb Dean took 2 points away from him in his only loss at BW, and yet still he likely won all three rounds.

TJ Dillashaw, Ramsey Nijam, and Dennis Bermudez they do have "loses" in the UFC because they lost the tournament finales since then they've been very impressive.

Ofcourse I don't even know why I bother talking to a guy who thought of listing Mike Whitehead and Luke Cummo as "success" and ignored Melvin Guillard, and Matt Hamill.

Ofcourse the talent was better in the earlier seasons. That's not what I'm talking about, your just changing the issue because you are a troll. The talent was better in the early seasons because it was easier to find. Most if it all of the fighters you listed were top talent from smaller organizations.

Forrest Griffin - already beat Sonnen, Fulton, and Monson
Josh Koshcheck - 4 time All-American NCAA champion
Mike Swick - Just fought for the WEC championship
Chris Leben - Just won the WEC championship
Joe Stevenson - KOTC champion
Diego Sanchez - KOTC MW champion

Of course the early seasons had better talent because in the early seasons they put ringers on the show. Now they use the show as a recruitment program to bring 3-4 UFC caliber fighters into the UFC. And because obviously you don't read again

Nobody is saying that the last few seasons are as good as the early ones (though the fights are much better). The issue is that many of you think the program is DEAD and this absurd as 80% of Miller/Bisping guys are still competing and thriving at FW, BW, Flyweight.

I like the whole "Heavyest hands vs. hardest skull" aspect of this match...

As for TUF itself - I really can't be bothered anymore, the talent-level involved is so watered down these days, and I loathe reality television in general - so yeah :/

Will watch the fight for sure, TUF - not so much

We've seen Carwin punch Lesnar and not put him away. We've seen JDS punch Nelson and not put him away. What we need is an Uberknee vs. the skull of Nelson. Overeem already has one legendary feat on his name.. Whoever hasn't read that article, do it. One of the funniest things i've ever read.
