Kendall Grove Says Spike TV Controls TUF, Not The UFC


"Spike TV pretty much runs everything on The Ultimate Fighter. They could be sub-leasing the UFC name, but I'm sure Dana and the UFC are getting a nice little pay check from Spike but other than that, Spike runs the thing. Dana doesn't choose who's going to be on the show, it's Spike executives. Even when I was on there in the earlier seasons, they were picking a couple guys with funny personalities. I'm pretty sure I got on there not because of my good looks, but because I had a pretty good personality. Everything is ratings to these guys. Just like that season where they shot [expletive] inside the fruit...people do that stuff. Why? Because of ratings. Is it a health violation? Yeah, but did you see the Spike TV people stop that from happening? It sells ratings and that's all they care about. They could give two [expletives] about our career. They just care about the six-weeks that they're shooting and get as much drama and stupidity out of us. That's all we are to them is cattle and sheep. They way they run things, they're slowly controlling us to be like that."

This explains a lot, it's good that the UFC aren't the ones 'selling out' for ratings.

Wow. Kendall Grove is one smart dude.

Well said.

uh oh... Dana might not like Kendall talking about this type of stuff....:confused02:

Danm2501 06-25-2010 04:39 PM

Spec called it. Kendall's got himself in trouble here. Don't think Spike or the UFC were too happy, and hence Kendall's fight with Reljic which was set to be shown on the Spike Prelim card has been demoted down onto the normal Prelims and replaced by Seth Petruzelli's return to the UFC against Ricardo Romero.

Kendall = Cut

Nefilim777 06-26-2010 11:40 AM

He got cut over that?!? That's a little extreme, yeah he shouldn't have said it but it wasn't exactly a secret was it? Spike is a tv network, tv networks need ratings, make sense. Hence why some dudes with zero pro experience get in the house...
