No one comes out of TUF and looks like a champion, but it does provide them the income to start training like one. The question from this show really has always been, who can prove to us that you are a good risk. They have had more losers than winners in the end, but still we have gotten quality talent that on the show was very rough before. It will happen again with these guys.

Guys like Bermudez and Bedford will give anyone a good fight. They might not be championship material but I could definitely see them being top 10 at some point.

Pablo Garza was eliminated in the round to get into the house during the GSP/Koscheck season. He is now facing Dustin Poirer and a win makes him a top five FW in the world.

So in other words your knee jerk pearl clutchin' brow sweatin' flim flamery is premature.

I could see a few of them doing well after TUF, I could see Bedford making it into the top 10 at some point or he will atleast give anyone a run for their money.

This. The show is designed to hunt down potential, future stars... and from what I've seen, there is some serious raw talent this season. There's not been one boring fight thus far, and I see so much potential in some of these fighters, especially in regards to a division lacking depth. You're getting your panties in a twist far too early. Stars will be born of TUF 14.

Heck, we've not even seen every fighter perform. Far too early to be making these types of comments. Try and enjoy what has been one of the better seasons in years.

Compare them to season 1 when they had the first 205 and 185. Forrest Griffin, Diego, Kos, Florian all got title shots eventually, and Leben is a mainstay. This season I had very high expectations and actually thought it would be the most talented cast yet. I was proven wrong by the show. Promising fighters like Jimmie Rivera, Louis Gaudinot and Micah Miller were all exposed by mediocre fighters.

Bermudez is coming off 2 losses in a row in his pro career, though I was impressed with him and especially his desire to win. I dont think he'll be a top 10 fighter though. Bedford lost to Figueroa last year. Nobody even heard of these guys and they were supposed to lose to whoever they faced thus far.

I think that with facts that you wrote its completely opposite.

The fact that promising fighter lost to less known fighters has more potential to find a real talent. The must have something in them if they won these fights.

That so called "less known fighters" already got their ass beat by mediocore fighters, and now theyre beating the best talent of tuf. I think its the other way around, guys like Jimmie Rivera, Louis Gaudinot and Akira are just not what they were hyped to be. The only fighter with potential is Diego Brandao, and even he didnt have his first fight in the house...

Its ironic you post in this thread after last night, when the self-proclaimed "future world champion" Akira Corassani got tapped by Dustin Neace

Having a brother in MMA doesn't automatically make you skilled and famous. Look at Mark Hughes, although his record isn't horrible.
