A deeper insight into TUF

A great article. Something all those people that love the "drama" on TUF should think about.

What are your thoughts on TUF, and other MMA Reality shows(Tapout)?

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

I hate the reality TV aspect about it.

That said while I was still married it got my wife to watch it and has gotten my sister into MMA. She'll even watch non-ufc MMA now.

This is the kind of stuff I don't like about TUF and reality shows like "Real World"- most of the times you know it's a producer telling a castmate "OMG Jennifer did you know Lisa called you a bitch in her private chat log?". Later that night when Jennifer is tanked on all the freely provided booze she's at first like this:

Then at 2am she goes after Lisa:

Then they have most of their 44 minute installment wrapped up.

Same with TUF- lots of free booze + lots of testosterone + sheer boredom with no books/TV + couple of producer prompts = Kos messin' w/ Leben, Leben "spritz'ing the bed and Jesse Taylor pissing himself and other stuff.

That's why I really only DVR TUF so I can FF through all the junk. One freaking show last season featured how much Jesse ate and showed multiple shots of him cramming food into his pie-hole. WTF- over that period of time they could have made that segment of anyone ever in that house with clips of them eating food. Just plain stupid.

It really doesn't surprise me but it's a bit misleading to call it 'Reality TV'. This comment really got me wound up....

"If our idea is that the fighter needs to be training with people that are maybe more intense or have more skill level, we’re going to say it."

Looking after fighters isn't exactly negatively influencing how they are perceived by the public & their camps.
