Why are these guys getting fights???

Look at the card for the 11th

ULTIMATE FIGHTER 4 LIVE FINALE: NOVEMBER 11 IN LAS VEGAS

Main Card Bouts:
-Welterweight Finals of TUF 4: Matt Serra vs. Chris Lytle
-Middleweight Finals of TUF 4: Travis Lutter vs. Patrick Cote
-Michael Bisping vs. Eric Schafer
-Din Thomas vs. Rich Clementi

Preliminary Bouts:
-Martin Kampmann vs. Thales Leites
-Edwin Dewees vs. Jorge Rivera
-Pete Sell vs. Scott Smith
-Jeremy Jackson vs. Pete Spratt
-Charles McCarthy vs. Gideon Ray



Why are people like Charles McCarthy, and JACKSON, of all people getting a chance to fight for UFC again?
Can't Dana find any more talent? Come on....

I'm astounded that McCarthy is on the Nov. 11 card. I guess somebody's got to take a prelim beating.

Because they want to give it a TUF 4 feel. Having guys from the show fight, and all that jazz.

McCarthy is fighting in a pre-lim fight, so it may not even show. I don't know what the huge deal is. Should McCarthy even be on a UFC show? Absolutely not, but they let Jason Thacker fight(As well as Mike Nickels), so McCarthy isn't all that bad.

This looks like one fun show.

Clementi vs Thomas
Serra vs Lytle
Bisping fighting.

Yeah, I guess you're right with the TUF 4 feel, I didn't think of that.
But at the very least the guy who snuck out of the house shouldn't have gotten a fight? Why throw money his way?

Those are two excellent questions.

Why bother being a hardass with Jackson on the show if you're only going to give him a chance to fight anyway?
Why let Spratt fight again when he didn't improve at all?
Why let McCarthy fight when he pissed all over the show? (I know some will laud him for his 'honesty' but, really, STFU. There are probably a hundred guys who would have cut a nut off for that chance.)

I think this does sort of call into question the depth of talent available to the UFC. And ultimately, the fights on TUF4 weren't that entertaining. Why have a repeat of them?

...although I do want to see Bisping dismantle someone again.

Well they pretty much do this at all the finales. The majority of the fights are usually made up of fighters from the show.
