These are the 16 best they could find?
 
The quality of opponents this season is a joke. Except for maybe 4 guys, the rest are horrible. I'd even go out on a limb here and say I could kick Bowmans ass and I don't even train!

Are you telling me outa all the people in the US, this is the best 16 you could come up with? People with 0-0 records? WHAT?!

We have yet to see one even half way close match. They've been very one sided. It's blantantly obvious that over half of these dudes were chosen for pure camera entertainment value.

Just had to get that off my chest.

The best 16 that are unsigned perhaps.

It's a reality show; they need 10+ marketable tv personalities and they need 2 good fighters for the show to work.

TUF should go on 2-year hiatus and let the unsigned talent pool replenish. I feel that they're somewhat scraping the bottom of the barrel. Yeah there's always a chance of hitting a jackpot and finding raw/potential talents, but the overall quality of the future batches of TUFers as whole won't be as good.

So true, and those 10 personalities will be marketed in a way everyone thinks they're actually good.

Half of these guys make me want to fly out to Vegas next time they have a LW audition and try out, it's getting ridiculous.

Not sure if anyone listens to the Jordan Breen show, but he listed off about 30 LWs who are either unsigned or with smaller organizations (which usually aren't exclusive) that could be on the show instead of most of the guys they have.

J-Rock


really? i thought he was horrible, he looked scared to get hit IMO.

What the **** ever. How were they supposed to know that Dorian Price, with over 10 years Mui Thai kickboxing practice, would suck? How would they know Serras boy Joey Scarola would suck? How would they know that J-Rock, Miles, and several others would just get their asses handed to them? the ONLY person I can see being a joke is Bowman (And I COULD beat his ass) everyone else seems like they have potential.

He was scared of the takedown, most people with open and low hands are worried about stopping the td
