Is The Ultimate Fighter Good For UFC

I am sure this is not the first time this thread has been brought up but anyway. What do you think?

I personally toon in to TUF at about 1/2 throught the fight to see if the fight has started sometimes the fights are good. I just cant get enoght MMA.

I think it feeds discussions about what fighters act like even though it is faux reality. Can Matt Seirra really be that annoying? Dana seams like a complete ass.

1 or 2 of the fighters per season seam to be the real deal.

Ya i think its got its pros and cons like everything.

In one sense it draws attention to the sport and helps shows like Ultimate Fight Night. But in the other sense i think its also watered down the UFC. Useing fighters like Danny Abbadi and those types arent very fun to watch, and they don't belong in the UFC imo.

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.

Yeah TUF is good in a sense that it has brought an incredible amount of attention to MMA. After TUF 1 the UFC and MMA blew up. This is why we have a lof of fans who are only aware of the UFC and do not know about Pride and other MMA fighters. So it is a good thing because MMA is getting a huge following now. The downside is that the majority of these fighters from TUF will never be fighters you will see with a belt around their waist. Only a small percentage will make serious contendors.

i think instead of UF they should hold mini tourneys in like tristate areas...show the final 4-5 matchs live...and let the winner have a shot at coming in...more live fights...less dramatic bs

I like what you are saying. I would like to see it focused more on training and making the fighters better. Less on how often people cook and clean. 4 or 5 fights a week might be a few to many.

I agree, it has good and bad sides.
I don't think some of the guys who lost thier first fight and didn't do anything should get calls to fight.

it think it has become an important tool. i always said if i ran the ufc i would have like a j.v. league to have a fresh pool of talent to pick from when a division needed some guys. i think the problem is the shows producers have too much say as to who gets on the show. they might pick a guy for his personality or look to be on the show when it should be based on his ability. its obviously help increase profits for the ufc, which is good. that means guys can get more money and sponserships. since i plan to go pro some time next year its pretty important that i can earn a living.

id really like to see tourneys of guys who are supported by a school (like they do for king of the ring) and see how they progress over a year or two. Maybe one would eventually get a shot at getting a belt. To me its more fun to see two guys fight who you only know a little about then a match like tito/shamrock...where its just a matter of time til something bad happens.
