Dana White disappointed with TUF 10; promises better episodes are on the way

he should promise no more Kimbo so we can watch and get to know other HW's.

"Before this season started, I went out and told everybody this is a great season. I said that it was great before it was and I told everybody this wasn't promoter bullshit. It's a really good season. Lots of cool shit happens. It's a great season. I was disappointed in the first three fights. The first three fights that happened on the show, I wasn't crazy about. It gets better from here on out. The fights pick up after this." - Dana White

Instead of getting physical specimens, who are also complete mma noobs, then having them fight in the first week or so, they should have trained them for a couple of months first, imo.

Also why do we still have the stuck in the house with no contact with the outside world schtick, big brother isn't populer anymore, lets move on. Stick them in the house, but let them get visitors and shit now and then.

Agreed. I think they could completely do away with the house and have an even better show if they did it properly.

change it up

They should rotate each season with different MMA schools instead of just the UFC gym. Greg Jackson's, American Top Team, AKA, Extreme Couture, Militech, Team Quest, Legends, etc. Make it more like MTV's "The Real World" with each season in a different city.

Honestly, for every one of you, there are about 10 of me. I'd rather watch paint dry, than watch another episode of TUF 10.

The record ratings were from Kimbo, who unfortunately for Dana White, has already been knocked out of the competition. The Kimbo/Nelson episode will be the last episode of TUF 10 I'll watch, guaranteed.

I don't know how you can say that there are 10 of you to my 1 unless you conducted a poll. I guess we'll just have to see tonight's ratings, I'm betting they'll still look pretty good compared to previous seasons.
Rgarding Kimbo's getting knocked out of the running, there is significant evidence that Kimbo will be back in the tournament at some point.

I used to enjoy watching TUF to see fighters working hard to get into the UFC. I was really impressed when they changed up to make them fight into the house. So far, this season is not living up to the standards previously required. It'll be hard to appreciate the winner of this season till he gets into a real war with a real warrior. I'm hoping the rest of the season proves me wrong...I want to be wrong.
