Themed TUFs

It looks like UFC likes using themes to generate interest in the ultimate fighter. (ex. US vs UK)

I am wondering what themes you would like to see?

Some ideas I had were:

Straight-edgers vs Hell-raisers
East coast vs West coast
Strikers vs Grapplers (Maia would be a good grapple coach, IDK about the striker)
Rookies vs Greybeards (I can see Couture as a coach)
Gym vs Gym (Make it two famous ones which UFC stars actually practice at, coaches would be obvious)
Nation vs. Nation (maybe two european nations to geneate interest there)

Christians vs Muslims vs Jews for the next TUF would be great.

And it would cause a total shit storm on the interwebz.

Congratulations you won!

I'd like to see a Midget Season, that would be a blast.

i was thinking that when they said it was gonna be Kos & GSP for the next one why not US vs Canada?

or for the one after have Shogun vs Rampage/Rashad (although i don't think rampage EVER wants to coach EVER again... he did not enjoy it) and make it US vs Brazil; however the language barrier between the teams may be too much.

are there enough australians to have a US vs AU?


on a less serious note, we could do race wars: blacks, whites, hispanic, japanese... east coast/west coast could be cool. i don't think they would do camp v camp as it would be just a running commercial for those schools for 2 months, and would show favoritism by UFC to 1 or 2 camps and everyone else would call shannanigans. even so, ATT & AKA would be my bets to do, which also makes it east coast/west coast... change the theme song of the show:

Carley Simon, thanks for writing that song about me!

Haven't the themed ones had the worst ratings?

I like the idea of the US vs Brazil, but more than that, I think they just need to bring in new foreign talent. Dana has been talking about all these new overseas markets that he wants to expand to; I think a great idea would to bring some emerging talent over here just to get people talking.
