I don't think that TUF has run its course at all. TUF4 might have been a step back, but like KillerG said, it's a great way to attract new fans - I know I'm here because I stumbled on to TUF3, for instance.

I think the TUF concept will run for a while yet.

FOr one TUF season, they need to bring fighters from around the world. That would be something cool to see. Since a lot of top fighters are from different countries, shake the UFC up a little bit.

Whoa, thats a really really really good idea.
You should email that the UFC or something, I think that would make for the best season yet!

As long as Dana White is promoting, I think TUF will be around for a while. Not every season will be great but will continue to draw in new fans and keep the majority of its present fan base. Love or hate Dana, he knows how to get the best out of his product.

They wont bring fighters from around the world cause how could they start "real world" pissing matches with eachother when they all speak different languages.

Also how will coaches coach if each guy on his team speaks a different language. Is he gonna have 8 translators on hand to give out instructions?

no definatly not. TUF gives the UFC a chance to draw in a new bunch of fans each season. Especially since it's free and most peaple won't buy PPV unless they nknow exactly what it is there paying for.

LIke most have said already,TUF will be around for awhile longer. I also agree that at some point they might wanna take a short break,IF the talent level or ideas get weak,but its been the savior of UFC. They wont give up on it very easily.

In a lot of countries a lot of people speak very good English. In Northern Europe (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands) the majority of people seem to speak it very well. I've met many people from that region who can even speak with perfect English or American accents.

A lot of people in Central and Easten Europe also speak good English. Ditto ex-colonial countries in Asia and Africa.
