WWE to me has lost a lot of popularity with the emergence of UFC and also they are lacking personality. sometimes i watch raw and the fans are never into it like they used to be when stone cold, the rock, the really cool kane with the mask and sleeves, DX, and mankind were kickin it. it does make sense for UFC to go after some personality because it really hyped up ortiz/shamrock 2. good luck with your career. just get into some small mma events and send in a tape and hope for the best.

Of course they pick on personality, because from watching a bit of TUF, you can tell they don't choose people based in their fighting skills. They all suck.

keep in mind though, this wasn't a try out for a UFC contract, it was for the reality tv show TUF. I'm sure your personality is weighed more heavily when talking about a reality show, but there are many, many, many fighters in the UFC that didn't take the TUF route. Winning smaller mma events and working your way up with hard work is just as much an option as was the tv show. I do feel your pain, because even losing on the show gets your name out there, where as smaller events can take a lot longer. But forsaking your hardwork for a personality adjustment doesn't have to be the case. It's not all about popularity just look at Tim Sylvia :P

what does post number have to do with anything you can be some random guy and have 1000 + posts and still not be any one important. Im relatively new to the forum and I dont post ***** so because of this im instantly a poser lol.

I dont even own a digital camera so that isnt possible. Like I said before I went there with one thing on my mind and it wasnt taking pictures.

lol, I mean I try not to hate on them because every ones out there trying to be stronger and trying to be a better fighter but the best season of tuf to me was 4. You could tell the difference in the skill level and these were people I already knew about. Like I felt bad when mikey burnette lost because I used to be a fan of his way back when and the guys like serra etc youve seen them before and the fights were far more interesting.

Maybe it was because you use phrases like uber gay


I also love the follow up posts about Dana being a ***** or whatever other ignorant word you can come up with to try to belittle someone that you are on a lower level than. If I were Dana I would gladly be a ***** to be in that position. He has done way more than anyone on here has done.(in MMA anyway) Yet, many of those on here just come online, and whine about UFC or Dana....get a life and quit watching if he is so bad.
