    I picked other and like the wild card thing. I don't like just one way for reasons already stated. The only thing I fear out that is the producers picking someone just to exploite on TV not because their a good fighter and got beat

    I think the wildcard thing they introduced could address the fact that fighter 'x' put on a good show in losing against fighter 'y', while fighter 'a' gets in after fighting guy 'b' who sucked balls big time.

    I think it's better that they are made to fight to get into the house. Not only does it make a great episode with all those qualification matches, but it also let's the coaches&Dana see if there's someone who just don't have the fighting spirit to make it (for example the french guy). Nothing worse than having a guy in the house that pretty much quits for nothing.
    However, the idea of so called wild cards based on performance in the qualification matches is a solid one.

    You are talking about the tryouts?
    Because if yes, I remember seeing a video when Dana said that not because a fighter lost means that he is eliminated, the the performance is what counts.

    Get in the house another way

    So, we all know that, at the beginning of the Ultimate Fighter, you have to win a fight in order to get in the house. Would you all be in favour of a performance-based entry instead of a win-based entry?

    The reason I bring this up is in the case where it seems fighter 1 beats fighter 2, and fighter 3 beats fighter 4, but both fighters 3 and 4 put on a better performance than fighter 1. If entry into the house was performance-based, fighters 3 and 4 would get in before fighter 1.

    Sorry if this idea has been posted before.
