TUF seriously needs to take a new direction.

Dana white always talks about how far this sport has come, how safe it is, and how respectfull the fighters are. This is true but the way TuF and the ufc are promoting, they are still promoting it as what it was back in 1993. They need to change the theme song for Tuf To something that of an orcisrta like NBC with the contender. And start going after boxing fans, not just bar brawlers. If boxing prometed an event with blood spatters that wouldnt even get sanctioned. also they need to make some changes to the octagon, such as a white canvas

A theme song doesn't really mean something and if someone wants to try and use that to say the sport isn't legit then they are just nit picking because they don't have an argument.

Do you ever hear boxing commentators or boxing fans speak of mma in good a good light? I sure don't and they won't so why does the UFC need to go after them with as good as they are doing now? They have the intrest of the younger audience that boxing doesn't have and they can build their future from that. I'm not sure what you are talking about the blood splatter because boxing posters that are used to promote fights have the blood splatter on them.

I have no idea what a change to a white canvas would do either.

I think this season is much better by having to fight to get on the show. The last 2 seasons were lacking alot I think.

I like the theme music,etc. and dont see much point on changing that .

If there's any direction that TUF needs to take, it's with regard to their selection of fighters to bring on the show. Don't get me wrong, I really like the cast this season, but my main issue is that all of them are so inexperienced.

Before TUF, Bonnar and Griffin had a lot more experience. They were kind of nomadic fighters going from organization to organization, without a real home to show off what they were capable of. THESE are the kinds of fighters that really should be fighting for contracts on the show, every fighter in the TUF house should be similar in that sense, that way we can see more technical fights, and guys that haven't had luck with their careers could have the opportunity to get back on their feet.

I think that most of the fighters on TUF7 really should have to work their way around smaller shows more, such as King of the Cage, etc. There are exceptions such as Tim Credeur, he's an example of what there should be more of, IMO.
