Danna White really needs to pull his s*** together when it comes to picking TUF fighters. I really started thinking about this when I saw Hermen vs Macdonald a few nights ago. Macdonald said he tried out for TUF twice and was declined both times. Mean while Danny Abbadi and Ross Pointon get to be on the show what a joke. Ed Hermen was favored to win TUF and he got defeated very easily by Macdonald. I know it was only one fight but I think he could have one TUF if he was accepted. A majority of the guys who are on the TUF seasons are garbage and a few talented guys come out of the show and then Dana always say his stupid little speech about hows he's found the best guys in the country:laugh: . I think Danna White should take more time making sure the TUF series has legit fighters and less time sponsering the s*** out of xyience.

Have you ever watched the movie The Great White Hype. Everytime I see that movie I think of Dana White and some TUF fighters like Matt Hamill, Jorge Gurgel, and Mike Whitehead! On the show they made it sound like these guys were some unstoppable force. When its time for these guys to fight they become a big let down because there skills aren't that great!

I agree to some extent with the quality of fighters for TUF. Brad Imes sucks-can't be accurate with his punches against fast guys. Forrest and Stephan can't box even though that is their "bread and butter." I think the majority of future TUF should be ju-jitsu and wrasslin' amateurs. Not guys who just picked up the sport 2 years ago.

Nate Quarry was badass until he got ****ed up.

I agree, but Robbie seems to have a vendetta towards the UFC...

He'd be fun to watch on tv, especially when he is talking to the camera.
The guy practically drools when he talks..

TUF4 could've had a couple betters fighters, like I heard rumors of Edwards and Diaz being on the show but that never happened.

Has anyone even heard the slighest detail of the TUF5 format and how it's gonna go?

I have heard it was going to be 16 lightweights with coaches BJ Penn and Jens Pulver. I don't know though, if thats true then they prolly just started taping it now, since Penn and Pulver were both training for fights around the time I thought they would be taping this season. If they just started taping it recently, then TUF5 prolly won't be on till February or so. I don't know though it's just rumors, here's the source:
