TUF: Jones vs. Sonnen was a tremendous season and ought to have been the series finale. It was well produced, well coached, and it featured some solid talent. That and the focus was less on cheesy dramatics and more on the fighters themselves - skills, abilities, training, and fighting. It had a raw, documentary type feel to it, which was refreshing.
Now, we have TUF: Rousey vs. Tate, which I fear is going to end up like Big Brother - which I've never watched and never will for obvious reasons. The UFC had a good thing going with TUF 17, but it doesn't seem to know when to call it quits with this reality show. I would rather it have ended on a high note.
I've not watched Fight Master as our area recently lost Spike. Though I've been thinking about downloading/streaming them just to get a taste of what Bellator's version of reality television is like.
