Lightbulb Should UFC Ban Alcohol In The House?

I honestly think that the UFC should just put their foot down and provide no more alcohol in the house, or a limited amount or something because it causes nothing but trouble, I mean hell all its really resulted in is things getting broken and people getting kicked off the show for it.

What are your thoughts?

Alcohol =

I don't see why a guy would want to drink with an opportunity like that anyways but thats just me. Banning alcohol wouldn't be a bad idea but stuff like that brings ratings sometimes and adds drama and all that junk.

Nah. These are adults and supposedly professionals... or at least wannabees.

I think the exact opposite... they should put more stuff in the house to tempt them.

The show is like a long, drawn out, job interview.

Those that dont realize what an opportunity they have... thats too bad.

Not banned...Maybe moderated like big brother. They only get so much alcohol per week i think.

My prediction went to Sh!t...

When they get famous, they will have the funds to access much worse than alcohol. Keep it in plentiful supply, like others have said, shows the level of focus and commitment.

All elements to up the drama quotient. As adding alcohol to the mix will fuel drama. Simple reality TV format. They were probably well aware JT was a bad drunk before he got in, and that would have helped in the selection process.

Shows like this pick candidates likely to conflict, and adding booze just speeds it along.

Personally, I have enjoyed this series a lot.

I think they leave alcohol in the house specifically to create more drama for the camera.
