New Ideas for Ultimate Fighter??????

Now that Ultimate Fighter is in its fourth season, how are they gonna keep this thing fresh? They tried to change the format last time with the "comeback", but what's next, I think it's at risk of growing stale. maybe a celebrity ultimate fighter ... or take an average joe, give him the best training from liddell, hughes, st. pierre, couture, and make him fight a UFC fight in 6 months?

I reckon they should carry on getting fighters as per UF 1+2 but have 3 rounds-
round 1 Stand up striking only
round 2 No striking just Grappling e.g BJJ, Roman Greco
round 3 combo of both

Thats if they get past the 1st round.

that would never work out. A striker would KO or cut the grappler on the first round and he wouldnt be able to fight round 2 or 3.

ya thats a stupid idea lol takes the whole "MMA" concept right out of it.

I think Camps would be cool, you choose like 3 or 4 big camps each camp gets 2 or 3 fighters and then they do like they did in TUF 3 with choosing fights and bracket work.

I think the camps idea would be cool with camps like

Militech- Pat Militech
Team Quest- Randy Coulture
Team Punishment- Tito Ortiz

then i donno for the last team i feel like im missen a big camp out but theres others like American Top Team, Gracie Barra(sp?) and others like that. What do ya think about that eh?

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I read somewhere that it is rumored that TUF 5 will feature 16 Lightweights; 8 previous UFC fighters, and 8 new up and comers. I also read that rumored coaches are Jens Pulver and BJ Penn. Don't know how true that is as you can't believe 1/2 of what you read these days. Something tells me that BJ has other things on his mind after losing to Hughes...

Y Stupid?, it would show the more well rounded fighters, and maybe your right but it was exactly that an idea no more no less so stop being disrespectful instaed try constructive criticism.
If something like that was in place i would have had the pleasure of seeing leben smash the crap out of Koscheck.

Speaking of Kos v. Leben.....That would be a good undercard to a future event. We just got to see Bonnar/Griffin rematch. I hope Leben dosen't get cut this time.
