OR to keep going with the pride vs. UFC theme they should bring a few up and coming jap fighters and have a Pride guy coach them...:smashfreak:

But the TUF 6 figure contracts (3 fights a year, 12k per fight first year, 16k per fight the second year and 20k per fight the third year with the standard double bonus if they win) locks the fighter down for 3 years (I dont think Pride would enjoy that).

it's better than most reality shows.I enjoy the drama.It's like the real world only at the end of the day they go in there split each others heads open.It's great if you ask me.:wavesmile:

the challenges are pretty much gone, and it could be worse MUCH WORSE. Look at the contender, not only do you have to sit through all the BS, but then they don't even show the whole fight, how gay is that, I thought it would change now that it's on ESPN, but no.

The deaf guy aka Matt Hamill was on season 3 and there werent any challenges that season. Thank God bc they were gay.

I am hoping (please, God!) that with the older and established fighters casted for TUF 4 that we will be spared the food fights and bubble baths.

LMAO. I second that.

Also, I am so glad they got rid of the challenges. It looks to me like they are doing it right. Start with a basic reality show to bring in the people that don't watch MMA and slowly over the coming season's make it less and less reality show and more pure training and fighting.

I liked the challenge in season 2 when Stevenson rode Whitehead's back for like 300 revolutions or whatever it was. And the challenge where Gurgel won by knocking the guys off the monkey bars with only using his legs was a fairly cool challenge. But otherwise I agree that the challenges were pretty lame.

1) the challenges are pretty much gone,
2) it could be worse MUCH WORSE.
3) Look at the contender, not only do you have to sit through all the BS, but then they don't even show the whole fight, how gay is that, I thought it would change now that it's on ESPN, but no.

All excellent points.

I don't mind seeing a little training and interaction/behind the scenes action.
Less BS and two fights a show would be ideal, but I'm happy we have this much. The contender is LAME in comparison.

I enjoy knowing more about the fighters as people. For example, I had no idea Serra had such a personality.
