I don't really like tapout because of skyskrape and mask and that other guy. I just like it because it showcases better fighters, better training methods and better fights too. Just as of late TUF has been catching my eye because they aren't just picking up regular joes off the street.
For the longest time it pissed me off seeing these no-name guys come on the show and just take up the fame. When there are guys like me fighting indepedently and thousands of others that could be on the show but because we aren't "dramatical" enough then they don't cast us.
At the same time, it's our faults for not taking the time out of our busy as hell schedule to make audition tapes. But I thought UFC would be more like TapouT and come down to different shows through out the country and pick up their fighters that way?
But yeah, back to the main point. Tapout will give you a better understanding of how MMA works as a business and as a fighter and who to go to for good promotion and exposure (if you're a fighter or want to become one.) Ultimate Fighter is for those 12 year old boys that watch one episode of that show, and automatically they know shit.
Pick your poison.
