also this is kinda random but i like the way TUF is now with young inexperienced non blue chip prospects. it helps a lot of raw fighters be able to train with the best coaches for 6 weeks and really mature and learn stuff and that helps them start their careers.
Exactly right dude, on both accounts.
I always like when TUF features a handful of amateurs, learning from some of the best fighters/coaches in the world, training to be good enough for a shot in the UFC, thats the way it always should be.
Instead of having a few or one fighter that you know is going to win(Danzig season 6 and Nelson season 10). Or a season where every fighter is litterally all the good North American fighters not under a UFC contract(Season 1 and Season 2)
Kinda off-topic but this is one of my TUF pet peevs. I hate when a season of TUF features fighters that a 2-3 weight classes apart from their coaches. I mean whats the point of having a great UFC fighter as your coach if it basically all goes out the windows as soon as it hits the mats due to size, like whats the point of having a FW rolling with a HW?
I think every season the coaches should be one weight class above or less the fighters. That would be the best way to get the most use out of the coaches.
