Who has the brightest future from this season?
We've seen it on a few seasons, the winner of tough is not always the fighter we see for years to come. So, out of this season, who do you think will have the brightest future?

Ephrain. Like I said before, I think the kid has the attitude/mindset to be a champion one day.

I still say Nover, he just needs to slow down and relax. Also needs to work on his TDD. But has far as striking and jitz go he already looks legit.

Oh btw I also think Marshall has a really bright future

Gonna go with Efrain. He reminds me of Joe Daddy. He managed to dominate a fight against a very dangerous opponent. He fought a very smart fight, which is not common with young fighters.

Efrain and Nover are both going to do well at LW but that division is so loaded I think it will be a LHW who has the most success.

Vinny if he can learn how to take a punch will do great but I'm not sure.

Eliot who has great BJJ and is more a well rounded fighter then Vinny could do very well himself.

However I think Bader who will be probably the second best wrestler in the division behind only Rashad. In a divison that is full of well rounded fighters but doesn't have a lot of top BJJ guys or top wrestlers and Bader is a well rounded fighter with All American wrestling I think he will do very well at LHW.

"Darth" Bader is a machine, he's my pick to be the next great from TUF.

Bader, Efrain, Nover, even Junie has some potential. Elliot Marshall has good bjj and should be able to stick around in the UFC for a while. Time will tell but there is def. some talent from this season, even though I think a lot of it needs time to develop.

I think Vinny has the most potential by a wide margin. His striking during the show looked better than I expected and we already know his Jitz is very advanced. His future is very bright, I also think Junie has a future because as we all know heels thrive in the UFC and N. Diaz has been quiet for a while leaving a bit of an asshole vacuum.

I think Bader has a birght future. He's the best pure wrestler in the LHW division the UFC has, they dont have many wrestlers, Rashad is the only other one whop comes to mind, possibly Hammill too and old man Coleman (but he'll retire after Rua smashes him).
Was also very impressed with Eliot Marshall, although Bruschoz is a bit of a can and was the worst fighter on the show.

Definitely Efrain for me. He's only 22 years old and I think with the right training this guy's going to improve drastically, to me he's definitely a long term prospect for the UFC. He's able to use both his wrestling and submissions in his fights, he also has good submission defence. He surprised me against Nover, I also think he has a very positive attitude.

I feel like Bader will make an impact too, he's a power house.
