I also think they need to allow the audience to get to know the fighters better, besides just on the episodes they fight.
Show them training, have them talk about their careers, let the coaches talk about them more.
If the UFC is gonna continue to push TUF veterans more than other guys then I think they could do a better job building them up.

is that fighting is not
