For me they run TUF way to often and its having a downside effect on the quality been listed in the UFC, pretty soon there will be nothing left to compete in the UFC other than "TUF Trash"
I don't agree. So you are saying part of the reason GSP and Anderson may be so dominant is because of TUF? What TUF contestants do they fight? Kos? Who has proven to be good at what he does.
Most of the TUF fighters that are given a chance get cut after a loss or 2 and make up free card prelims.
The UFC can't just go sign everyone. They have had plenty of guys who are coming up that had nothing to do with TUF. Jon Jones, Phil Davis, Cain was basically a UFC product after a few pro fights, Junior Dos Santos, Fitch,...all of these guys weren't bought out in pride or stolen from another organization...the UFC found them and brought them along.
Then go into the middle teir of guys and it is hardly a bunch of TUF dudes. Palhares, Guillard, Story, Stun Gun and so on...all guys the UFC had searched and scouted as guys who have potential.
So really I don;t agree at all. They give too many TUF losers a chance, but they usually get cut. And they hardly make up a good chunk of the divisions.
