100% agreed...or at the very least like a Japan, U.K., U.S., Brazil...........maybe toss Korea in there

The only way I would tune in to this season of TUF is if Dan Henderson is in it.

I don't like the UK vs US premise, not a huge fan of Bisping, and the contestants seem to get dumber and more immature every season.

Why not, they all lost to Silva?

I would actually prefer to see Marquardt for a few reasons:

1) I think he would beat Bisping and hopefully earn a title shot after the show and he is my favorite UFC MW.

2) He would probably have quite a few guest coaches from Jacksons like GSP, Rashad, Jardine, Greg Jackson, etc which would be cool.

3) I dont want to see Franklin/Silva 3 and Franklin would beat Bisping

4) I honestly dont think Hendo is any more charismatic than Marquardt is.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Hahaha bisping is such an ass.He said "fingers crossed I'd beat them"(regarding franklin/hendo).Who does he think he is?? This is the guy that ran around the cage like a chicken against leben.How does he expect to stand a chance against any of these guys?
and marquart would f*ck him up just as bad, too.

I cant wait until he and his stupid little fans get shut up

He's an ass for saying he hopes he would beat his opponent?

marquart should take the fight for two reasons:

1) he would beat bisping in the final

2) he'd get some really good exposure and therefore help his career

Marquardt is a great fighter but this would IMO be a bad decision for TUF. I mean how many American fans like Marquardt? The guy's a great fighter but he's not very popular at all.

I mean Franklin has a fan base and Henderson was a Olympic wrestler. If you are going to go USA vs UK go all out don't half ass it with a popular UK fighter and then have an American fighter who has no fans outside of hardcores.

perhaps because nate has lost 2 of his last 4.

the only person Rich Franklin has lost to in the UFC is Anderson Silva. He's beaten every other contender in the division.

If it weren't for anderson silva he would seriously be running the division just like silva has been.

Hendo has a stellar career and seems to have a big rating at 185 despite the fact that I think he's far better at 205 and really should only be ranked there.
