Why should I spend my money to watch bunch of young fighters from the "minor league"?
When was the last time you followed Minor leagues in baseball? Or watched CFL instead of NFL?
Get the point? I wanna see the big boys fight.
Chungt79, All of the fighters are new to the "big show" at some time in their career.
I, for one, am not following younger fighters by watching them on PPV. I'm going to live events and watching DVDs. Thus when they show up on TUF or a UFC event, I'm already familiar with them, and have enjoyed watching them improve their game.
I liken it more to: you only want to watch the Superbowl and I want to watch the whole season. I'm not knocking that. I think you have a lot of company. Hell there are people on this forum and others who write off anyone who is not in the top 10 of their weight class as a loser. That's OK, but it is shortsighted.
I certainly don't think watching it all makes me or Lethal less of a MMA fan, if anything, it makes us more so.
