As far as the fight goes, I remember thinking how laughable it was that Sonnen was fighting Silva the first time. As much as the man pisses me off, I'm done counting him out.

As far as "Hendo" goes... I'm sorry but screw him. After he ran off to make more money in Strikeforce, then came back to barely beat a very much downsliding Shogun he was given a title shot, that's nearly as much of a gift as Chael's shot if you ask me.
You remember he was suspended for juicing after that fight, right? And it wasn't just garden variety TRT, he tested with something like 6 times the normal ratio IIRC. Take that fight away and what has he done?

I'm actually dying for Sonnen to win. He's not Lesnar who gets a lot of stick for no reason. Sonnen has had his chances and failed, but at the end of the day I know for a fact I and everyone else in this thread are going to be glued to TUF every step of the way. People who will "boycott" the event should just go watch Bellator or something. UFC doesnt cater to you, boo hoo, go watch something else then. I want to watch interesting MMA related television, from MMALive, to PPVs to TUF. Jones Vs Sonnen will be interesting as fuk, so, definently will be watching.
It will not be good television. It will be the same tired formula with more shitty fighters. The reason why TUF isn't doing well isn't that the coaches don't have any drawing power, it's that the fighters they bring to the show are bottom feeders.

TUF has produced big fighters from almost every season. Think of Nate. He's only JUST got himself a title shot. Current TUF guys are having decent little steaks all over. TUF isn't really about seeing the next world champion, it's making an MMA TV show. It gets people into MMA (as it did with me when I watched UK Vs US). What brings it from a decent TUF to a great TUF is the coaches. Does anyone care about Carwin/Nelson? Cruz/Faber? Everyone liked Wanderlei/Vitor and Bisping/Mayhem. When they are interesting characters, it makes for a good season. The added bonus is stockpiling a new group of potential prospects into the UFC and giving them great training experience and a small fanbase beforehand.

Yeah big time. Was first time I seen it on TV and I wouldnt have been much of an internet streaming guy then. Watched it and loved the whole concept of MMA. My favourite TV show up to that point was The Contender, so the TUF format really caught my attention and I got hooked to the show. I watched the finale, and then thought "Brock Lesnar has a fight coming up, I should catch it". I think then I came across a Strikeforce event with Nick Diaz fighting, and that's what really roped me into watching MMA and I began watching every UFC and SF card since.
