I do agree that many fighters in the UFC are not as well rounded as I would like to see. There are too many one dimensional fighters which is why the top tier fighters in UFC don't ever seem to have any real competition.
Joe Rogan is a pretty good comentator not the best but it could be a lot worse. Frank Trigg comes off as a dork when he is commentating.
Yes they treat the fighters like cannon fodder and if they don't win are usually gone the next day never to be seen again or they end up in Pride and begin to excell. baroni is one that comes to mind. I wish they had a developmental program for the UFC and actually brought fighters up through it so we could see more quality fights. But I guess that is kinda what TUF is.
ya it cant be argued cuz it works! I just dont like it but im one person among millions that do like it.
They end up in Pride and excell cuz they were never bad fighters, Dana throws them to the curve way too soon I am still VERY MAD that TUF 4 involves ppl that only had 2 fights in the UFC and he already throws them away when there WAY BETTER then a lot of the TUF cans that stay in the UFC and get more fights then them, then every PPV lineup you look at you see a bunch of no-names
this is why Pride >>>> UFC IMO, Pride markets itself more like an actual sport and its competition level is higher cuz it keeps more, better fighters.. they dont throw them away after 2 fights as often as the UFC does.
