It's too late for tuf 4 now. The show sucks and now I'm just hoping that TUF 5 is going to be much better. UFC had better be careful how the show is advertised because that's what 's hurting the show. I was so excited about Frankling comming on the show, and we got to see him for what, like a minute and thirty seconds! It's really sad when all the ads you see for the show are just empty marketing ploys that never deliver.

TUF4 is horrible. you never see the coaches, and when the fighters are training, you still never see them. its the Matt Serra show, which is cool because he's a good fighter and knows a lot, but he's still only a contestant. yet, he's the main cornerman and the public face of every episode. besides that, there is just something missing from this season. perhaps TUF can't go on, meaning, maybe after 4 seasons in 2 years, the formula is boring and we want something new!

What's missing from this season is the ability to get to know, and identify, and get close and personal with the contestants. For example, I really really loved to watch Ross Pointon on TUF3. He's not a great fighter by any means, but I just loved hearing the guy talk, he's f*cking hilarious!!! Like you said, it's the Matt Serra show, so ya basically see the same show every single week except for the fight at the end.

agreed.

Its terrible and why aren't they giving GSP his much deserved airtime (is that he's Canadian). In 2 episodes I'll have seen Franklin more then GSP, BS....plus I like these guys but to be honest I think most people have lost interest cuz these guys were not and will NOT be top level fighters. I'm not sure how many of you guys follow bball but essentially UFC is hoping to create an MMA Chauncey Billups meaning that the guy had potential but could never really get to the top. But with some training they're hoping to turn him into allstar caliber but they don't have Hall of Fame caliber (big difference). I mean I wish all these guys the best but I'm not that excited for creating a great gatekeeper cuz none of these guys will be a champion and if they were it would not last long.....so big deal. People are 10x more intrigued by the thought that some raw talent may come out, plus for most viewers that watch TUF don't identify with older over the hill 30 yr olds who are struggling to reestablish themselves like it was a bad divorce. The viewers that watch this identify with young d00ds that have the world in front of them and its interesting to see what choices they make plus they just seem alot more easy going and fun......although this season's cast has not been allowed any alcohol.:D

I think they need to cut down on TUF seasons. They should just make one a year. And why are losers staying in the house? I wish they would leave. My favorite part about TUF was getting to know the coaches and guys who will make future UFC fighters, I found it interesting. This season has none of that.

Yeah, we seem to be one of the few people on these forums that's actually positive about this show. I don't think it's boring, even though the fights haven't been THAT great so far, I still find the show interesting and I keep tuning in. It's still way better than season 2, by far.

In my opinion, none of them are ANYWHERE near the level off fighting they need to be to challenge for the belt.

Man...i gave up on the show after the chris lytle fight......its so boring no drama like the other TUF seasons.....i hope after this TUF4 ...they give it a break and do some brainstorming on how they could spice it up a bit cause it gets boring after a while....they should make more challenges and shit like they did in the previous seasons..
ive been watching MMA for avbout 7 years now.... and i swore to myself when i first seen the first seasons first episode that i would never miss one...

well the last 3 weeks ive had to make serious sacrifces to find a place to watch these.. and its just been bullshit.. i am no longer gonna go out of my way to watch Season 4... i will for Matt Serra & Patrick Cote' cause i think they actually deserve my time..

Indeed........Matt Serra/Cote.....is probably the only fights i'll be seeing......its gonna suck if i miss it but oh well lol! I was sorta hyped about the whole TUF4.......man....i wish TUF1 came back LOL.....lots of funny drama. :p
loool they should just get all the fighters with previous alchohol problems for TUF 6 and stick them in the house with 24/ Open Bar services.. and see how it turns out,... i bet there would be more KO's in the house then in the Octagon
