As far as women coaches or a woman season? Love the idea!
I don't think anything bad will happen.

At the end of the day there a TV crew and a room full of fighters there.

A lot of the nonsense drama/fighting in the past has been contrived..like Frank Mir alluded to in that interview.

I'm sure if someone were trying to legitimately **** someone like some are alluding to, it would be stopped quite swiftly.

This idea will be interesting to say the least. It almost makes me wonder if there will be any attempted intimate encounters. Stuck in a house for several weeks with all that tension. Who knows how it could make some of the singles act. I'm sure the crew is prepared though.

I don't think it needs to be axed. I just think they need to take a break and spend more time looking for quality fighters to be an the show instead of churning out new season after new season sucking the talent pool dry while running out of decent coaches.

Lets be real here, TUF has been shit for many years now with fewer and fewer guy from it having decent UFC careers. This is for ratings and nothing more. Talent-wise I bet it will be horrible, especially the guys. But now that its TUF big brother version the entertainment aspect will save the ratings perhaps. You cant put a bunch of girls/guys who fight for a living in a house to live together, without their gfs/bfs/wives/husbands for weeks and not expect the obvious. That's what gets ratings unfortunately.

Not anymore really. Big brother and real world aren't exactly burning up the ratings. Jersey shore did well only because of the people who were guarenteed to act like fools. I also believe it's ratings took a hit.

My problem isn't the coaches they rarely do any actual coaching. However the team they bring is what it's about. Ronda could probably round up some great coaches, but do you see either Tate or Zigano bringing in a team? Doesn't Tate train with her boyfriend? Are either if those girls going to be able to bring a team? I could be talking out of my ass and no doubt will be told so but I don't have a single clue what camp either of them are from.

absolutely LOVE the idea of Rousey going against the winner of Tate/Zingano...bit iffy about the men and women sharing houses though. Just seems like that decision was made with a specific purpose in mind.

I guess it weeds out the dedicated from the easily-distracted.

But given the 135lbs Womens Divisions current shallow nature they could've easily marketed, and benefitted from, an all-women TUF.

Ronda is with Cesar Gracie's camp so that's gonna be fun. I don't know where Tate and Zingano train.
