| | Nagging TUF question
from what i've always understood, in regards to the fights that take place in the house on tuf, only the semi finals go on a fighter's record, right?
cb entered tuf 7 undefeated, but of course lost to amir in the semi finals (and later the finals). going in to the finals, his record included one loss (in compliance to the semi final bouts being considered professional ones).
now, on tuf 5 (my favorite season), we all seen gray maynard tap out to nate diaz in the semi finals, yet to this day, maynard is considered undefeated. another name that comes to mind that seemed to slide under the radar is ben saunders. his recent fight w/ mike swick is considered to be his first loss, yet he too was defeated in the semi finals on tuf 6. junie browning on the other hand entered his season of tuf w/ zero losses, losing to efrain in the semi finals, apparently counting as a loss on his pro mma record.
with all that said, why do some fighters seem to get passes in regards to their semi final losses on tuf, while others are stuck w/ the blemish?
