All of them won't ever make it in my eyes. Maybe I am completely wrong.. but I just don't see the potential in every single one of them.

Some of those will be gatekeepers I agree some will get cut soon.


I even confused Tavarez with Thiago Tavarez.. so not even he is on my list unfortunetly..
I think the UFC is looking at TUF for more Bonnars, and Lebens than Baders and Sotiropoulis. While ofcourse they aren't all going to make it I think they'll stick around on the facebook and prelims and show up on PPV once every couple months.

Neither Rashad nor Koscheck looked like future contenders based on TUF performances.

Some looked great on TUF but their fights were mismatches. They looked pretty by fighting low quality opposition.


Hard work is the only real PED.

I stopped watching TUF a long time ago.

First of all, it comes on at the same time the new South Park episodes come on and I'm far too lazy to google it after.

Second, I get to watch semi-adults act like children for 40 minutes, then get to see a fight I'm not really interested in watching considering neither of the two guys fighting will mean anyhting in the MMA world, except the winner and maybe 1-2 other guys that might get a few UFC undercard fights.

The show is just pointless in my opinion.

I think they should have to fight to get into the house but should space out showing the fights. I think in the beginning of the episode they should announce that episode's fight and then show those fighters qualifying fights or highlights (depending on how long and good the fight was). That way we get more fighting per episode (in the first round) and the strengths of the fighters will be fresh in the viewer's mind. And since I like more fighting per episode I would do 2 fights a episode after the first round.

That's pretty much why I've never even really started to watch that show. I've never really understood what a soap opera has to do with MMA.

I guess WWE fans like this cheerleader behaviour of supposedly grown up men though, so White is milking that cow...
