One of the big problems with HW's and LHW's is that Spike is going to be backing up dump-trucks of money to them for the Bellator role out.

You might be able farm some MW's but it's likely best to stick with LW's or WW's. You can even see guys get "cut" just to show up on the show.

Heck I can see it now TUF finale,

WW - Yoshiro Akiyama vs Charlie Brenneman
LW - Cole Miller vs Leonard Garcia

Nice picks guys.

I personally would love for Gerald Harris to somehow play into this, I just don't know many guys to fill the comeback season in his weightclass lol.

With that said, I really hope they do another season. TUF nowadays is just getting boring, and stale.

How about a reunion season?

The entire cast of season 1 doing it again would be amazing.

Wow, I've never thought of that. Surely that'd be pretty hard to pull off for Dana, and Lorenzo, but that'd be insane!

CHRIS LEBEN FTW! I'm still sad about how Leben was treated on that season to this very day...

That would be awesome. Koscheck and Leben living in a house together again, Bonnar and Forrest sat around being hilarious, and Mike Swick and Kenny Florian finally being able to eat properly again, awesome! One thing though, does anyone know where Jason Thacker was found, or where he's gone since TUF? That poor kid did not last long.

Hmm, I guess Strange Brew quit fighting once he was finished by Leben on the TUF Finale. Doesn't surprise me though. He didn't seem like the fighter type.

Not sure if I really want to see another Comeback series. In fact, I'm hoping the show will get cancelled somewhere in the near future mainly because it hasn't been relevant since TUF 4.

+ you can add kimbo slice and james toney for star power/ratings.

Why would Barnett be on a comeback season? He is basically a top 7 HW right now. He is still very good and soon to be in the UFC???

You think it is possible for the UFC to get Fedor on TUF when they couldn't sign him to a huge contract to main event PPVs?

Lets add an ounce of reality here.
Why would Arlovski and Sylvia not want a chance to get back in the UFC and make the big bucks, while at the same time getting a free chance to promote themselves all over NA even if they fail. It isn't like they couldn't go back to fighting in B level orgs right after they fail. I bet they would jump at the chance.

Barnett may have the skills to be considered top 10, but I bet you he wants in the UFC like a fat kid wants cake. It would certainly be a comeback for his career.

And no I do not think it is likely they could get Fedor, but the question in the thread is "who would you want in it?". This is who I would want in it.

I'm sure no one would complain if they got Fedor on the show. You really think they would decide against doing a show with Fedor just because he was never in the UFC?

No, I don't think you understand what I'm saying. This thread ask us to pick fighters for a comeback show. Why would that include fighters that have never fought in the UFC? It's called "comeback" for a reason. If we are jut going to ignore the entire point of the show and what it means then why not just throw names out like Aoki, Mousasi, Crusher, Chandler, Curran, Shlemenko, Askren ect...
