Did The Ultimate Fighter Run It's Course?

DO you think the show has run its course or do you think its hotter then ever?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I think that we as a nation are in the reality TV era. MMA has made its way into reality TV, and as long as they can continue to find 16 old timers, or hopefuls we will continue to see it on TV. Personally I still like the show, and I think that the show will continue for some time, prehaps slightly changed but the concept will remain

I think it's only going to get better from here. We're supposed to have Penn/Pulver as coaches, as well as 16 other 155ers. I've always loved the 155 division, especially since they've brought it back. It's becoming the most exciting and fast paced, and I think we're going to see the best season yet, fight wise.

I think its the perfect way to introduce people to UFC, wether its the odd viewer of MMA, or a other martial arts viewer.

Its free, introduces you to many of the players (coaches and Dana White) and can also help you learn how they train and what they train for. I mean originally i watched for the knockouts and the blood, but now for me just like 6 months later if that, i look out for the arm bars and triangles as much as Chucks over hand right.

I think its a great way to get new fans especially as a lot of people wont pay for PPV for something they know FA about

They haven't done much with LW's yet so I'm glad that's the next version, but after that I think they should step back for a good six months or so to let the talent pool refresh. TUF 3 was getting a little thin on new talent.

It says on the UFC website they have a contract til 2008, for up to four more TUF season.

I think by that time, we'll be so sick of TUF.

I think after a couple more they will start to run out of fighters. In Tuf 3 was a good show but some of the fighters looked/fought like they scraped them out of the bottom of the barrel. I would really like to see them find somemore HW's and put them through the show. That is the weak weight class in the UFC and they need more of them (that can make it through TUF (which I consider more like a training camp))

I hope they continue to start pickin up fighters outside of the U.S, after bisping won and the popularity he obviously gained, you would think they'd try to mix it up even more.

I agree. I also heard that TUF 5 was supposed to be like TUF:Mexico or something, but I guess that is squashed now. TUF 3 actually had some decent talent, but they were a tad on the older side. I think TUF 1 was the best talentwise, but a lot of the matchups/weight classes were whack.
