TUF 11 to Feature 28 Fighters, New Format

Quote:
A total of 28 up-and-comers will compete for a six-figure UFC contract on The Ultimate Fighter 11 premiering March 31, Spike TV revealed Friday.

Spike TV also teased a new format for next season, which went into production this week. One clue to what the format is are the 28 contestants, which doesn't fit into the usual 16-man or 32-man (which included elimination round to make it into the house) bracket. Could there be surprise contestants or a way for fighters to win byes?

Coaches on the show for the all-middleweight cast are former champions Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz. Both have experience as coaches on the show, with Liddell going against Randy Couture on the first season and Ortiz facing Ken Shamrock in the third.

While not yet official, Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields has said he will serve as assistant coach on Liddell's team and former WEC lightweight champion "Razor" Rob McCullough has said he will be brought on the show to help Ortiz's squad.

UFC has already planned a UFC Fight Night to lead into the March 31 premiere. Kenny Florian and Takanori Gomi are expected to headline the free card in Charlotte, N.C.

Strange that it doesn't fit the usual 16-man or 32-man tournament structure.

Maybe some fighters get byes, or maybe they have to do some sort of challenge before they make it into the actual house.

Or maybe it's that Tag Team MMA stuff...

I don't think everyone will get a fight, I think only 16 guys will fight and there coaches will pick a fighter each week (the guy with the hammer will pick last). It will prevent p*****s like Meathead.

I think the fighters with the most impressive proformances will get byes, this will encourage everone to step up there game so they can fight less to get the same contract. Make sense?

Accept Meathead proved himself after the show.

If this is true "in theory" it'll be alot better.
In practice it's a way Dana can keep people like Big Country from ever winning again, by simply not allowing him to fight.

Of course we don't know what's gonna happen, and who knows it might make for better TV.

I honestly couldn't give a badgers ass if there's a new formnat, the only thing that they really needed to improve was just have proper fighters and proper fights - unlike the last shambles and more like the first few TUF's were the winners were a different breed altogether.

GrabthemCakes can only hope to improve
I guess some of the winners of fights will be awarded "friendship" cards that they will be able to hand to a fighter they became friends with on the show. That fighter who has received
the friendship card will be given a bye into the next round

For all Dana's talk he had to know Big Country was gonna win, come on Dana has spent enough time around the sport to know what virtually every fan of the sport already knew.
