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)
Location: Western Massachusetts, New England, United States of America, Western Hemisphere, Earth, Sol System
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!
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.
