    ...we have seen only six title fights in the UFC.

    LW: Penn-Stevenson, Penn-Sherk
    WW: GSP-Serra
    MW: Silva-Henderson
    LHW: Rampage-Forrest
    HW: Big Nog-Sylvia


    Not nearly good enough in my opinion, especially because none of the title holders have had any injuries stopping them from fighting. I can appreciate throwing A.Silva a bone, but it should have been a 185'er.

    We are only likely to see four or maybe five titles fights the remainder of the year as well. (Nog-Mir, Silva-Cote, Silva-???, Forrest-???, GSP/Fitch-Alves)

    The champs should be defending at least three times a year, optimally four times a year.

    yeah, but gives it a halfway legit excuse last season :dunno:

    they should go back to just grabbing two popular fighters with a decent ability to coach and give the one who wins the season a title shot

    :dunno: how else are they gonna pick the next person for silva to murder?
     
  9. or they could have the guys fight in the middle of airing the season.

    would take too much hype out of the rest of the season for spike. a decent subplot of the show is how the coaches interact and how they piss each other off. alot of the suspense would go away if you learned halfway through one coach beat the other.

    How about a back to back fight. They fight before the season starts with a rematch at the end LOL.

    Yeah I liked that way of doing it the best. I would love to see a TUF season with Wandy and maybe Chuck as coaches. Wandys english sucks but you know there would be mad drama with Wandy on there, he'd be in the other dudes face or trying to fight him like every episode.
     
  14. if they had hamill on the show, they can have wandy

    every time they announce a title holder is a coach i want to throw something at my TV. the good thing is, i can see every belt holder but forrest holding on to his belt for awhile, so they will eventually run out of fresh titleholders :x:
     
  18. someone has never heard of giant silva

    fuck TUF. It's bullshit the champs go into hiding for like 8 months. They need to cut the rosters alittle more and have a pay-per-view every 2 months stacked with 8 great fights. Shelling out $50 a month for a UFC is getting old and im sure alot of people are feeling the same way.

    You do realize Dana White's personal assistant just saw your post and is running to the bald dink with his laptop showing him what you just typed.

    You have ruined it for us all. :nono:
