You mean saffiedine Im guessing. You could have
Kampmann/Saffiedine or could have Hardy.

other options could be;

Mousasi/Bisping(if he beats Cung) Could use Carmont I guess

Overeem/Arlovski (even though they're teammates now), Struve could be a coach against one of those two guys as well.

Ali/Pickett could work

I rarely watch TUF in it's entirety these days, for TUF Europe I'd tune in though.. depending whom they cast.

I watch all of the TUFs so that I can watch the matches specifically. Part of my monthly Top 10 Fights of the Month lists. Honestly those lists are a way for me to keep track of the best matches.

I think this makes more sense then the whole idea of a TUF India which was abandoned anyways. Seriously did Dana White think a TUF India was viable? One MMA promotion in India isn't enough.

Watching that basically confirms that TUF Europe is way off. They can't get the fighters. Most decent European fighters are in contracts with big organisations like Bellator, BAMMA, One FC, KSW etc. I know that all of them and now CWs don't have UFC release clauses in contracts, which means that a fighter whose just started a multi fight 18 month contract isn't getting anywhere near TUF. And the majority of the other unsigned fighters would be of a lesser standard than TUF China.

Also, outside of Fight Pass, European Networks aren't interested in having TUF shows on their channels. It's a real uphill battle.

Dude, I live in Portugal, and I agree with you 100%. Europeans are the biggest fvcking pussies in the free world, next to India. What a joke. TUF India. TUF China was a complete joke. 1 Billion people, the birthplace of martial arts and all they could come up with is a shit cast of character actors who've never been punched. LMFAO.

Booooaaaa!

Yeah, that was a complete fluke and I think the UFC should just do fight nights in China. I thought they would've had a variety of martial arts backgrounds. Instead they had subpare fighters.
