Naw i have seen the last 3 seasons, but look at what happend. Yes their are good fights from there, but none of them seem to be doing anything... the only guy from that list that has had a chance at really anything is Ken Flo, the rest had there chance and didn't even make a good run for it... so grade C fighters aren't a good way to build a league.. but a great way to build a fan base

^^^^^
what he said

some of the most exciting fighters in UFC are from TUF. True not all of them have had compleely succesful careers but they've also faced some of the best in the business so who can blame them.

neither has rashad evans. with some more well rounded training the guy would be a monster.


mike swick hasn't lost since TUF either. he is in line for a title shot(i still think it's too fast, but atleast he is getting a shot).

chris leben is doing fine as well, his only loss since the season end came from Anderson silva, i don't think i need to explain that it isn't a huge deal to get beaten by silva, seeing as he is one of the best in the world.

stevenson is up there in the LW rankings of the ufc. forrest has been doing fine, still not championship material, but he is doing fine.

keith jardine is a decent fighter as well to come off the show.

koscheck is becoming a decent fighter.

kendall grove is a decent fighter, so is ed herman imo.

bisping appears to be a monster, although he hasn't really been tested yet.

there are some more that i missed probably...

but all of that being said, they again are only fighting level B fighers... most of the TUF fighers barley have any background in a figting style, again most of them are just wrestlers and can toss a puinch... i like Ken Flo hes smart.. where more of the TUF fighters aren't they just throw punches and dive at there oppent.. and ever time i watch the ulimate fighter it makes me laugh.. cuz i know i can fight better then most of thoes guy.. they only thing they really have on me is the power.. because i dont spend my life working out... lol.. but the TUF people .. some of them even have their HEAD back then they are punching.. they look like girls.. hahaha yes given with the amout of people you have see in tuf .. there are always bound for a few to stand out

naw the whole point of a fourm is to discuss people opinion, there just isn't a lot of talent in TUF, and it's a breeding ground for new UFC fighters.....

But as i said before anyone of the new fighters who won for tuf 4 is not supposed to fight Anderson Silva, who would WHOPE anyone of them in less then a minute...... so how is that a good place to get fighters? so ... i restate my question, is TUF a league?

lol now you are making me laugh even more man don't write something if you dont know anything....once again the fighters they select all have background in mma before they fight in smaller shows or champions of other organisations....Joe stevenson man used to be welterweight and lightweight champion of KIng of the Cage...but i guess you didn't know that. I used to train at team thompkins in London and Rob McDonald trains there also and he is a kick boxing champion...these no talent guys you are talking about have been around for years and if you think you have more talent then they do then your on crack bro.......like I said do your research before you post....and a little info for you most of them arent wrestler's lol they train BJJ and muay thai...you deserve a power stomp from Wanderlei for your opinions........hahahaha
