That would be good. I made a thread about two weeks ago about ways of making TUF fresh, but got almost no replies. Guess people like it the way it is.

I think they need to spice TUF and change the format. Even though this was the highest rated TUF to date, we all know it's because of Kimbo and not TUF. I would love for them to do a Pride FC or early UFC style tornament (which I know won't happen), or maybe do a team TUF kinda of like IFL. You can have a team made up of up and comers (not vets) representing their training camp. You have one team from ATT one from Xcouture etc..

Something needs to be done, and they need to get creative, cause the old format is getting old

Another idea would be to have a styles addition. Again taking on the older UFC's maybe they can do base against base. Like everyone gets excited about Lyoto's ressurection of Karate in MMA. Maybe they can find some fighters that have unorthedox(sp?) fighting bases. Might help evolve the sport also. Dunno just throwing ideas out there

They need to do something to keep it fresh.

Do away with the house? Are you kidding? This show is after ratings, without ratings there is no show. And without the drama of locking 15 guys in a house who have to deal with each other every single day, without any contact with anyone else, there would be no show. No one would watch it.

The house is more important than anything else, it isn't about entertaining the 7 hardcore fans who just want to see fighting and training. It is about reaching a global market. And the global market are the same audience who made Big Brother a massive success.

Dont tell me you didnt like the fight at the house on TUF 5. Gold.

Dana scares that Kimbo will show up his paper champions and rule the all of UFC divisions. Mark me words.

I like the idea of them going to a different camp every season. Personally I didn't think the season has been that bad so far. Been interesting to see how Rampage just bails out on his guys. Especially Demico. Sad how Rashad was more of a coach then that idiot.

Thats why I love the DVR, I can fast forward through all the boring stuff and watch the fights. Sometimes the house is entertaining but most of the time in past seasons they act like a bunch of juveniles.

I think this week's episode was somewhat more of a better episode.. a more explosive fight, some drama in the house with Marcus going into sweat mode, and Rashad showing some good coaching qualities.
