    Seems the usual TUF motto of take some young fighter and give him a chance to make it into the UFC has turned into, take some has been football players and some people that have been in the UFC and give them all a chance (or second chance in some cases). Sounds like a bunch of crap. I am sure there is some marketing ploy I am missing. Maybe we could get football to be a team type UFC event, team on team at the same time, team with the last guy standing wins, that would be good to watch.

    i think this will be the best TUF yet. they got some real potentials here, aside from kimbo of course. i would love to see kimbo vs ben rothwell. that will be a pure slugfest.

    I agree with Tazke. I liked TUF better when they were no name fighters. It used to be about giving the lesser known guys a shot.

    Junk is the toughest guy there for sure. That guy takes a lickin and always keeps moving forward. Very hard to stop and insane cardio for a 265 pounder.

    This season will be the best yet! Demico Rogers is the one to watch for, that guy is a monster!
