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?



I like it.
I think you are overrating how much these guys "want" to be in the UFC. Barnett is in SF and basically 1 fight away from coming to the UFC anyway. He is a top 7 HW for gods sakes. He isn't in a million year going to do TUF.

Fedor wouldn't sign a huge contract and fight for the belt. Why would you think he would be all excited to sign up for a reality series show? You really think Fedor would do reality TV? Not in a million years.

The other guys are a little more likely. But again they make decent money fighting main events on small shows. They aren't going to subject themselves to living in a house for months and doing reality TV.

The thought of the mystique of Fedor being on an FX reality series on a Friday night makes me chuckle. Fedor and reality TV doesn't seem to go hand in hand.

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...
I looked at it more of a career comeback. All of these guys want to be in the big leagues and have been down and out or fighting B level opponents.

I see what your saying though. The first comeback TUF was all previous UFC fighters so this one probably would be too.

The question the OP asked was " If the UFC Decided to Make Another TUF Comeback Season, Who Would You Want in it?".

We can agree to disagree on whether or not these guys would want to be in this house, but my answer for who I want to see on a TUF season remains the same regardless of the likelihood.
