I think they are trying to cultivate the guys who are at the bottom of the totem pole, try to make them something in the UFC. Hopefully some of these guys learn something and can apply it to their fights.

I agree, The UFC is trying to bring more exposure and experience to the guys that are at the bottom of the barrell. These fighters are also going to be trained by the best in the business, so why would the show suck?

Something I noticed that nobody else has brought up-

If TUF kept going as it was, wtih newcomers, the UFC would end up have another dozen or so guys added every season. Meaning the UFC would end up with over 100 guys, with a good half or more of them coming from these shows.

I'm not saying it's gonna be more exciting, but it's better than another new group of guys. The first season was OK, Griffin ended up being one of my favorite fighters to watch, but Bonnar is a little bit overrated. Diego Sanchez I can't stand but he's a good fighter. The second season I didn't care for at all. The third was ok but we'll see how good these guys end up being. I do think Bisping has potential. But aside from those what, 6-8 winners from those shows, there's a good majority of the show fighters in the UFC. The more of them there are, the less chance you are gonna have of watching fights in the PPV with people you actually don't hate. The difference with these guys is you already know them to begin with. You know them from fighting. The TUF shows before you didn't know anything about these people except the lame drama that Spike chose to show with "Oooh he poured a hose on him and he punched through the door this guy is so tough!" You know what I mean? You either liked or disliked those guys based on the show as a first impression, before you saw them fight even in most cases. Least these guys, you may already know enough about them to give a crap about who washes the dishes or rubbed their gloves on some guys ass.

We shall see what happens, I don't think it'll be terrible with the coaches they got cuz I really like Randy and St. Pierre is a stallion.

Beeno makes some good points here but it should be pointed out that not every fighter from TUF ends up with a contract or even fighting in the UFC. The UFC also has contracts for a fight at a time for fighters that have yet to prove themselves.
