ufc is embarrassing

Yes all T.V. shows are staged, but this show was ridiculous. There is no way Dana White, Rampage and Rashad thought they actually had good fighters on the show. They would always pump thes guys up like they can fight, damn well knowing there all average. Roy Nelson the winner is a nobody! Might as well of had Tank Abbot on the show. Marcus Jones would lose to any of the top Lightweights in a striking match becuase he is simply Pathetic on his feet. And the rest of the fighters were simply out of shpae.. such an embarrassment to UFC. I felt Brendan Schaub was the best all around fighter on teh show, however he did get caught. I used to be a huge fan and these past few montsh I am extrememly upset with the UFC.

And Houston Alexander makles me sick.. He attacks everyone but not Kimbo.. Uhhh why? doesnt make sense to me.. this sport is going downhill

Unlike many of Houston's other opponents of the past, Kimbo has KO power just like he does. But I can agree with the reality shows seeming staged. That's what reality TV is all about. You also have to remember, alot of top level guys of today came from TUF and also looked bad on the show. Just have to wait and see, some will get good.

You obviously didnt see Houstons last fight. It was outside of the UFC and he fought it in the same way except he threw more leg kicks because the guy he was fighting had zero striking. Houston lost to much fighting with his brawler style, he has tried to find a new way to fight, but its not really much better.

No it isn't. You are just getting bored of it... TUF has always been a bit of a joke but it gives us a chance to look at some of the possibly up and coming fighters.

I wish people like you would just stop watching or something instead of this complaining crap.

Brendan Schaub isn't, and never will be the fighter that Roy Nelson is, hence why he got KTFO last night.

Your quite the fan of MMA if you think Roy Nelson is a nobody. hell Nelson is the most accomplished fighter to come through TUF and Im even including season 4 the comeback. I can't believe that somebody who is passionate enough about the sport to sign up to a forum to discuss it wouldn't know who Nelson is.

TUF has always been a complete joke with bad fighters (there are a few exceptions like Forrest, Rashad, Jardine, Koscheck). The UFC on the whole is ******* up right now, but its not all their fault. A lot of their champs and headliners are dealing with injuries which makes it hard to put on big fight cards.
However, last nights TUF finale was embarassing and the production quality was low. Dana White forgot what weight class the next TUF is, the sound was messed up during the Penn-Sanchez interview, Rogan and Goldberg are clowns that need to replaced at commentator, the TUF fighters are all terrible except for Nelson who is mediocre, and having Tito and Liddell coach the next TUF is also a joke.
The UFC needs to start acting more professional, upgrade their production quality, and looking for actual talented martial artists to put on TUF instead of tatted up talentless clowns who have minimal fighting abilities.

Actually Roy was quite possibly the most experienced and accomplished TUF winner ever outside the comeback season.

Also, your opening argument directly contradicts your later complaints. If the show is staged, why did Nelson, an unmarketable blob, win? Why did Kimbo and Houston have such a boring fight? Your argument doesn't make sense.
