I think that TUF does a good job of attracting attention and it brings alot of new fighters into the UFC, but I would like it more if it focused more on the fighting and training and less on all the drama and BS that occurs between the fighters and coaches.

It does bring more people to see what the UFC brand is and what they do. I think they inly show the drama because it sells people would rather see a Shamrock-ortiz rivalry then couture-lidell especially if they dont really know who they guys are. Just because they seem angry at each other. But the show is giving MMA life because more publicity equals more fans and more fans equal more money, which would give us better fights. So it works out for us in the end.

All Time Favorite Fighters
1. Ken Shamrock
2. Randy Couture
3. Don Frye
4. Frank Shamrock
5. B.J. Penn
6. George St. Pierre

I think it for the most part has a positive impact, as many say in this thread, its gives the UFC a lot of exposure.

Yes more fighting and less personal drama, I really dont care about stuff like Noah's girlfriend, although it was quite funny, but most of all pathetic..

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

I thought that was a great part to put in the show. It just showed everyone how serious Dana is about this and that they should be too.

Does anyone know if Noahs still with that girl? That would be great if she dumped him after seeing what a puss he was.

Ultimate Fighter is incredibly positive for the UFC. It draws more new people into the sport. More people = more popularity = bigger PPV specials = bigger purses = better fighters.

I keep hearing bashing of how new people don't get MMA or they are annoyed by the ignorance. Total ego nonsense. If you want to see great fights you should help as many people as you can understand MMA. It only helps the sport and your own enjoyment down the road.

It's been damn good for them so far. They've gotten a lot of fans because of the exposure, and they've gotten a whole flock of talent from the three seasons that have so far given us some pretty exciting fights throughout 2005. I think the seasons are only going to get better from here. Here's hoping for a Lightweight division.

Yes.

It's a great way to introduce the sport to new fans, is a great source of new talent, is a great way to attract more athletes to the sport, and generates a great amount of revenue for UFC which gives them more flexibility.
