MMA So just a few days out from TUF4 and I still hold the opinion that it's a bad idea

    Where is the fucking sense in taking the worst the UFC has to offer and basing a show around them trying to get better?

    How is this a viable alternative to picking hot young up and comers from the unsigned fighter pool again?

    This can't make the UFC a better place, it doesn't deepen the talent pool in any weight class... what the fuck guys?

    i think they are trying to create a TV show that will draw the masses and get ratings. So they needed an exciting new premise to not bore the every day viewers from "omg it's that same show as last season". Which like you said is pretty stupid and doesn't increase the talent pool at all.

    There are a few guys who definitely aren't the "worst" of the UFC. Hopefully those are the guys who win and get their names thrust back into the big scene. Too bad they will get stuck in a 3-year shitty contract that wont pay them jack IF the succeed after the show.

    I just realized from a commercial the other day that two of my most hated fighters to ever be in the UFC, Nick Diaz and Shonie Carter, are on TUF4. My hopes are really low for this season...

    Haha. I know what you mean, but things like that get me so riled up and pumped I almost like it. You know how after watching an awesome UFC/Pride or highlight video you get all psyched to train? Try watching My Super Sweet 16 on MTV before you train sometime. Nothing pisses me off more than that show. My friend and I were talking about it the other day and seriously if for some reason you had to sit through 3 episodes of that (god forbid), you'd be ready to fight Fedor.

    Edit: I agree with Maestro in a way about TUF 4 being bad, but it there are some solid talented fighters that the UFC can use. Plus you get free fights and more exposure for MMA. My only thing is they need to stop putting guys that lost on TUF on pay per views and just leave them for UFN.

    Nick Diaz isn't on TUF4 unless he comes in later on the show

    Source? I'm pretty sure Spike highlighted him as one of the guys on The Comeback :dunno:

    a lot of people have been complaining about it, but I don't see why it's wrong

    if a fighter makes it to the finals in this show and wins, it means he beat at least 3 UFC vets to get there, most of these guys are very good, I think it's legit

    I like the idea. It's something different, and I'm curious to see how these older guys react to being coached (by a young GSP) and living in a house together.

    I'm hoping these guys will show more heart than some of the ones that have been on the show and don't know how to cut weight.

    Either way, they're pretty much doing two seasons a year, so they'll prolly get back to developing talent again 6 months from now.

    he isn't, at least not officially yet

    I remember an interview on Sherdog where they were interviewing his brother and the interviewer said that he was on TUF4 and his brother didn't correct him

    I have a suspicion that he is a late addition but it's likely not the case

    Yes please. Someone ambushed us in another thread and I only caught a glance of it. I remember one name, but I've sucessfully pushed the rest out of my brain for now.

    Oh also Kru Mark DellaGrotte is a trainer on the show. He's a great guy that runs the muay thai gym I go to. So I'm excited to see him.
