Do any of these guys deserve to be in the WEC?

I'm not asking if they belong in the UFC, because that's certainly not the issue. As far as I've seen none of these guys deserve to even grace the octagon in the UFC.

They all gas rather quickly, they have no stand-up technique, sloppy ground work, fight like slugs.

So my question is does anyone on this show even deserve to be in the WEC?

And this is not a knock on the "show" in general. I actually like this season and the horrible fighters kind of make it entertaining to watch in a laughable way. I honestly think this is a season that should not be taken seriously, talent wise that is. But that's what makes this season unique.

you gotta understand though, these fights are similar to the fights bisping and rashad put up on their seasons. sure you could argue that theyve improved (not that it would be a meaningful argument) but still... they did bad just as these guys have been. The second fight was good, its a shame no one comes to the show with really good cardio AND respectable skills....

Evil will always triumph over good...

Because good is dumb.

Has the most highly touted guy faught yet? Then we'll see if anyone belongs in the UFC.

Credeur, Riddle and Taylor could hang in the UFC so far I'm thinking. The rest would get worked over bad.

Jeremy May vs Anderson Silva anyone?!

Not really dude, Bisping always showed well rounded skills. He never gassed and fought like a slug. Same thing with Rashad. I mean if you look at the start of TUF the guys from season one were beating on veteran fighters their first fight in the UFC. Can we say that about the fighters on this show that have fought so far? Absolutely not.

It's not a knock on the fighters. It's just season after season the talent pool kind of dwindles and it's kind of hard to scout out guys with great, raw talent. It's just that they are kind of forced now to bring in guys that aren't even mediocore fighters but rather horrible fighters that would never make it in the UFC if not for this opportunity.

Credeur or Riddle wouldn't have a chance against a veteran UFC fighter...not a chance.

With 2 months of full time training with Arizona Combat, Riddles got a shot at making some noise at the finale.

Okay, maybe I'll let Riddle slide. Obviously the kid does have power and he's verrrry young so he has time to produce.

I think maybe, maybe in 2 years he could do well in the UFC, but not any less then that. He has a very long way to go.

Matt Brown will hang. Don't count him out just yet.

Matt's first fight of this season was epic.

I think Matt was apprehensive against May because he reeeally didn't want to get caught with something and lose.

Brown's a stud. I think we'll see him at the finale.

If Matt Brown is a stud then the future of the UFC is dead and buried. He may have broke the MMA record of gassing out less then 10 seconds into a fight.

I think you got caught up too much in that pre-fight Matt Brown hype. Not to mention Jeremy May is one of the worst fighters to ever come on TUF. He belongs in the same boat as Danny Abbadi, Ross Pointon, and the majority of the TUF6 cast.
