To me TUF ended with Sonnen and Jones. You can't follow perfection.

Episode 2: "Ladies First" (September 11, 2013)
Episode 3: "Stick and Move" (September 18, 2013)
Episode 4: "Use the Force" (September 25, 2013)
Episode 6: "Little Princesses" (October 9, 2013)
Episode 9: "Sacrifice" (October 30, 2013)
Episode 11: "Mean Girls" (November 13, 2013)

Those are the only episodes worth watching. You only have one "techinical" fighter in the house and his second fight you can get on the recap for 11.

The female fights have been vastly superior to the male fights.

Which isn't saying much as the female fighters haven't exactly shown skills that make me want to see them in the ufc.

I think you are wrong, I wouldn't be shocked if 8 fighters from this season end up with contracts, and I can see 4 of them sticking around for a while.

Which says more about how shallow the women's division in than is says about their talent. I don't doubt they will get contracts at all but that doesn't make them all that good. Invicta has better fighters by far.

You don't know how good they are till they start fighting UFC talent. But I do think that not only will there be 4 legitimate UFC fighters on the roster but you will see a lot of bonus fighters come from this season.

Everyone though Season 11 sucked but in hindsight 7 of those guys got long term contracts and none of them seem like they are going to get cut.

I have enjoyed this season though, mostly by ignoring the men. Even though the 2 male finalists could carve out a nice little career in the UFC. The female fights have been great, although the only one with what i could call true skill was Pennington's stand up. Good "technical" agreesive counterpunching you don't often see in womens mma.

Interesting fight.

Dana and some of the other fighters were throwing our crap like "Raquel just froze out there" "She didn't turn up"

Its total shite tbh, Jessica was dumb... but that was the same chick that beat Duke.

Raquel went out there and tried to do her low volume hard counter punching style against a high level classical female boxer, Jessica Rakoczy fights in a style that kills any chance of female boxing getting any interest, But its an effective style.

She jabs, over and over to the head and body waiting for a reaction... when she sees one she sticks in a lead left hook or straight right. That's all she does, all with very little power leaving very little room for a counter.

Raquel had to change her game up, she didn't... so she lost.

I've barely watched this season which is rare for me, but isn't Jessica the girl who came in with a 1-3 career record? It's crazy that she's in the finals, and it would be even crazier if she wins it all.

Since I haven't been watching, Does that say a lot about how poor the talent is this season, or does that say a lot about how much she has improved on the show?

By the way, happy thanksgiving.
