Last season they had Nate Diaz, Joe Lauzon, Cole Miller and Manny G who are all talented and should do pretty well. Corey Hill has the Physical tools to be a monster at 155, but it's too early to make a call on him. I wasn't too impressed with the rest of the fighters.
Season 1 IMO had the most talent in, Diego, Grffen, Koscheck, Florien, Swick, Quarry and Bonnar. It was also the most entertaining.
Season 2 had Stevenson, Rashad, Marcus Davis, Luke Cummo and Melvin Guillard. They are all good fighters with Joe Stevenson being the best IMO.
Season 3 was the weakest IMO, Bisping, Hamill and Grove were the top fighters that season, so that should tell you how competitive season 3 was.
Season 4 had Matt Serra, Lutter, Lytle, Cote, Din Thomas. With the exception of a few guys, that season had good fighters.
All in all, every season has some good fighters and some sucky fighters. The closest thing to a an A-level fighter to come out of TUF is Matt Serra, I say that only because he is the current WW champ. I don't really count him as a TUF fighter anyway because he is a veteran.
TUF is an entertaining show that produces a handful of solid fighters every year.
