True , that would be nice to see more actual training, maybe they think that will bore the audience, who knows.

yes because flies and milk cartons are always more entertaining than training footage up to a fight in a show about fighting.

I was actually hoping that Mac would turn out to be fatally allergic to bee stings and that bee stung him.

I chanted "sting him" the whole time.

I hate Mac.

I hope Mac gets his butt handed to him by one of the guys. I would love to fight him. Although it would have to be a catch weight bout, because I am 6'1 235. To punch him in the jaw would make my year.

A bunch of fighters in one house, Of course they have to show what goes on in the house. Of course out of that many guys in a house there will be issues. Good fighters hating the bad ones, That causes house drama and gives the losers to much air time cough cough BLAKE. I honestly like watching the fighters in ther life situation. Makes you like them in a different way. We cant really watch training all the time because then they would just make the show a training DVD and charge for it. Its a reality show, There showing whats really going on. I think its alot better than watching real world bullcrap because I highly doubt the footage of the fighters and the house barley gets edited and chopped compared to other reality shows. So even with some goofy crap going inside the house I stay entertained. Cant be a fighter and train 24/7.

Yeah, plus you get to know some of the guys, and a few of them might make a big name for themselves (ie. Griffin, Jardine, Sanchez, Koscheck, Stevenson, etc.). If you like them from the beginning, you follow their career in the long-run. That's just good business for the UFC, and good entertainment for us. As fans, we like to root for our favorite TUF guy, who we hope to see climb the ladder (like Forrest, for me).

Now, when I say 'good entertainment' I mean their fights, not so much the drama in the house. Sometimes the drama can be entertaining, but the Joey crap was way too much. At one point, he was lying on a bed, whining to another guy about his girlfriend, and actually started whining, "waaahhahaaa." At that point, I became completely disgusted. I honestly got a kick out of the whole milk-jug thing, and they really didn't dwell on the whole bug thing very long. I like Mac, but it was funny to watch the guys with the jug.

Oh, also on the flipside, you learn who the real freakin losers are, and who to always root against. Too bad Joey will never have anything to do with the UFC because I'd love to see him get his face pulverized before his career is over.

Anyway, if you can't stand the crap they show on TUF, record it and just watch the fights. I honestly think you'd miss out on some good info on the fighters.
