1. more focus on the technical issues in MMA. Training, Fighting, everything. Viewing public should LEARN something about MMA.

2. Less focus on drama, but a maintained focus on fighter's personalities. it is interesting to see who the fighters are and how they percieve things.

3. Better coaches. Serra does a good job. Matt tries, but doesn't seem to do more than drill (at least what they show on tv...there could be more). perhaps get professional coaches instead of fighters.

4. just let them have some music and books. i understand the no tv rule. personally, i think the alcohol is a bad idea. i wouldnt ban it, but i wouldn't allow all the liquor. if you're seriously training you shouldn't be drinking liquor anyways and you should only moderately consume beer or wine.

5. Get fighters who have an ESTABLISHED record. no more NOOBS!

Ban the use of the word "Bro".

#2 Take away the booze and make the fighters act the F***ing age, I mean have you had the urge to trash a million doller house? Its not more experianced fighters they need, they need to try to find more mature and rationale fighters.

Exactly! I'm tired of seeing that shit! When I watch something like that I shake wondering how these Nick Diaz wannabes could be the future of this sport!."

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

c. Then the guy who didn't get his wake up call can say "You didn't wake me- now you have too fight me.."
d. Be smart pick an easy challenge early.

It would add a little drama.

2. And when 2 fighters get in their little macho competitions between matches- throw them into a one on one challenge to resolve it. Athletic though not ping pong or single digit math problems.

3. When 2 fighters are picked - do a little promo that series-i.e. training clips/montages like a little highlight reel of what they have done in the house (stand-out effort in training for example) or even amateur footage of some of their past bouts. Add some good music.

4. play the UFC pre-fight galdiator music when announcing the matches, give the fighters entrance music.

5. I do like the lack of announcers here though.
See this is their problem. Other than number 3 I wouldn't want any of that. If the actually used all of that I'd probably stop watching.

I think it highlights the problem of trying to please everyone.


1. George St. Pierre
2. Anderson Silva
3. Fedor Emelianenko
4. Don Frye
5. Kenny Florian

Some good idea's commin out of this, however I am really against the phone calls.

The show is obviously pre-taped and if your talkin to people outside of the house, it would be quite easy to slip out the results taken away the suprise.

The phone call rule has been there forever and if ya cant go the 6 weeks without that then guess what.....DONT GO.

This is what I want to see.

1. Im not sure why they dont but why not 3 rounds?! I'd love to have seen Ben finish off Dan in the 3rd round.

2. YES, I want to hear about more dieting/training tips, its not like there has been much goin on in the house, why not inform us about certain eating habits or list the typical workout regime for a certain day.

3. I'd certainly like to have more guest appearances, peeps like Griffen and Rampage would definetly add to the entertainment and ratings.

Less 'drama'.

How about double elimination up until the finals. 2 fights per episode instead of one. Also gives the fighters a better chance at showing their true potential from working on their game plans and such according to their losses.

Make the finals the winners of the losers bracket vs. the winners and just whoever wins the fight is the winner. Obviously no double dipping.. so one fighter who won the winners could actually lose by only getting beaten once.

Would make the seasons a lot better imo..

I'd like to see some footage if it's available of any previous fights they had. So each episode could show a little tape on each of the fighters scheduled to fight that episode and we would have a little better idea what to expect from them. As it stands it's always a surprise and rarely a pleasant one. This season has had some real good fights though. Best way to improve this season would be to fine Serra ten grand every time he calls Hughes a dick on camera, it's getting old and hasn't been funny since last season.
