RobZombie has a little shameless behaviour in the past
If fighters go out there and get owned on the mat several times most likely they aren't "top fighters".

TUF put the UFC on the map (Stephan Bonnar vs. Forrest Griffin) if you watched the TUF best moments countdown Dana White owes the huge success of UFC to this fight. TUF breeds fighters with alot of potential, combines them with the UFC greats and spits out future champs.

I would say earlier seasons really looked for talent and were extemely successful with some of the stars we have seem come out of TUF but since TUF 5 or so I've seen some people on the show that I know didn't even come close to deserving to be on the show..especially since the past two seasons, 5 and 6, have been lighter weights shich has such a deep talent pool. I know they could have chosen more competitive welterweights for this season. Sure you have Danzig who already really proved he was a good fighter before the show and George Sotiropoulis
but not really anyone else. You can't have all studs but they are given the task to find the top 16 guys in the country so I would think they could find guys with a little bit better talent like in the earlier seasons. I mean Wayne Weems on season 5. That was un called for. There is no way anyone saw talent in him. I think that was strictly for ratings so people would laugh at how bad he was. Things like that make me question the show sometimes.

I agree Weems and Rudiger were a joke in TUF 5. Rudiger turned up 20 plus lbs overweight and it was fat he did not look at all prepared.

Hardcore fans will always have something to bitch about no matter what....though if you consider that UFC is big and mainstream in the USA what about the rest of the world.....TUF has helped that happen, now other countries need a show like TUF to show more fans of MMA what is out there.
You guys in the USA are lucky you get to watch this on TV as people like myself have to buy the box DVD sets to be up to date
You should look at it this way TUF = UFC draft....
