Seriously why can't tuff have hw or lhw

I'm sick and tired of tuff doing 185 on down.

Look I love the lower weight classes. And yes. heavy weight is filled with fat, sloppy, over paid clumbst oafs.

I get that, but seriously it's good enough for a dying reality show. Sure you don't wanna do hw anymore, fine.

Why can't we have a lhw season of tuff? When was the last time this happened? Season3?

Season 8 was the last LHW season,

Ryan Bader, Jules Bruchez, Kyle Kingsbury, Shane Primm, Tom Lawlor, Vinny Magalhães, Eliot Marshall, Krzysztof Soszynski, Antwain Britt, Lance Evans, Karn Grigoryan, Jason Guida, Ryan Jimmo, Ryan Lopez, Eric Magee, Sean O'Connell, Mike Stewart.

They don't do those seasons for two reasons

1. The fights are terrible.
2. The talent pool is too shallow, if you are good enough to make it on the show you are good enough for a shot in the UFC.

If they threw in a few guy who are good enough to be in the UFC we would get a credible TUF. Most of the first few seasons were made up of fighters who could of been signed to the UFC.

Ah tuff 8 slipped my mine,, (for shame Ryan bader is a fav of mine).

We've seen shallow pitful talent pools from tuffs before.

The henderson vs Bisping season for example. The winner from 170 was pitful. Ross Person just lost to a guy who lost to Jens Pulver (the 155 winner).

So why can't we have a heavier tuff? Are you really telling me Ryan bader and Vinny what's his face aren't as talented as say MAc danzig? Seriously?

And i'd be deeply appeased with lhw. seeing as how the lhw division is basically heavy weights forced to be in shape.

The cardio issue. Many of the guys on TUF can't afford to train and fight full time and because of this they are not high level UFC caliber athletes. That is to be expected and is really unavoidable. Smaller guys though generally have better cardio which means they don't gas out as easily. That makes the fights look better on TV especially to people who are channel flipping and without a lot of reference points they likely don't realize they are smaller (the UFC uses a smaller cage for TUF).


Also please don't double post, if you want to add something edit it in.
