Which TUF has had the toughest tournament?
Just time for a bit of discussion on the past 6 seasons on the The Ultimate Fighter. My question is which TUF winner had the hardest competition to face, not exactly the hardest route because they could've avoided some of the tougher dudes but which season has the toughest fighters.
TUF 1 LHW: Griffin, Bonnar, Swick, Hogar, Southworth
TUF 1 MW: Sanchez, Florian, KOS, Quarry, Leben
TUF 2 HW: Evans, Imes, Petruzzeli, Jardine, Christoson
TUF 2 WW: Stevenson, Cuommo, Davis, Guillard, Burkman
TUF 3 LHW: Bisping, Haynes, Hamill, Pointon, Inhofer (Noah)
TUF 3 MW: Grove, Herman, Starnes, Singer, Pointon
TUF 4 WW: Serra, Lytle, Carter, Thomas, Clementii
TUF 4 MW: Lutter, Cote, Sell, Smith, Rivera
TUF 5 LW: Diaz, Gamburyan, Maynard, Lauzon, Miller, Wiman
TUF 6 WW: Danzig, Speers, Sotiropolous, Arroyo, Koloski, War Machine
Now those are the top 5-6 guys from each season IMO. Looking at them, I think TUF 1 MW, TUF 2 WW AND TUF 5 LW had the guys that have or will made the biggest impact in the UFC.
Obviously Bisping or Evans had the easiest competition as only 1 dude from each of there divisions are still fighting in the UFC and both avoided facing (Jardine & Hamill) on the show.
I'm going to make a blog about which fighter actually had to face the hardest competition to get the win (without doing much research and just thinking right now I'm going to say Sanchez, Diaz or Grove).
Anyone have an opinion on this idea?
