How would he know it wasn't any good then if he didn't watch it?
I heard TUF 9 got a lot of bad reviews. Some say it was on par with TUF 6 which means truly awful.

I thought TUF 9 was the worst season. Maybe it was all the brit accents but I think it was just he lack of talent and excitement. Like I dont know if demarques was actually any good or if the rest of his team was just that bad. It almost seemed like they picked better fighters for the brit team so they would win.

Heh. Good thing I missed it.

The last GREAT season I saw has to be either TUF 8 or TUF 5.

TUF 7 was alright I guess... Only because of Amir though.

You know what I watched every episode of TUF 9 and cant name a single contestant from this season, it was the most forgettable season ever. Hell I didnt know who he was and honestly I still dont care. I hope Brown murders him.

Off the top of my head is Frank Lester, who was memorable for getting 4 teeth knocked out of his face, and Wilks, for doing the deed.

There was Ross Pearson, who I remember for trivia purposes that he won it.

There was Demarquis, who I remember was totally hyped and overrated.

And there was the little Browning, who was just a POS.

I feel I should remember more, but that season was just terrible.

Good fight. I liked watching Wilks fight, but like Matt as well.

I guess I'm torn on this one.

I guess it's selective memory, given the US team got well and truely beaten. I'm sure if the US guys had come out on top you'd have remembered the season . I've still got a very good memory of the guys that competed:

James Wilks- WW Winner
Ross Pearson- LW Winner
Andre Winner- LW Runner-up
DaMarques Johnson- WW Runner-up
Jason Dent- Seemed an OK guy, fought Dollar at the finale
Cameron Dollar- Bit of a knob, constantly bragging about all the girls he'd slept with.
Dean Amasinger- Mr T impersonator, didn't show much fighting skill on the show
Dave Faulkner- Was mega hyped by Bisping, turned out he couldn't cope with a gumshield in his mouth and lost
Jason Pierce- Was in the US team but was closer with the UK guys. Didn't fight, apparently hurt his leg. Helped UK guys with gameplans.
Nick Osipczak- Scrawny looking cocky Brit fella, was decent enough, fought at the Finale and won iirc.
Frank Lester- Had his teeth knocked out by knees from Wilks iirc, showed some heart so got brought back to fight again
Jeff Lawson- Just remember him as not looking like a fighter and being abit dull.
Richie Whitson- The UK guy with the face infection which stopped him fighting for a few weeks into the show.

Pretty sure there were a few more guys, but those are the ones I remember. I quite enjoyed the series actually.

As for this fight. Looking forward to seeing it. Wilks looked mega impressive against massively over-hyped DaMarques, and if he's improved even more since then, then he'll give Brown a good fight. Should be a good'un.
