    As for the fighters, are they really that promising?? I have not seen the episodes, so I do not know. If they are indeed so great, then I may watch a little bit the season. But for some reason I have the feeling that it is just another attempt by Zuffa to gain viewers for the show. As almost no one is interested in TUF anymore.
    Chael hasn't been doing anything over the top on the show he actually seems like he is interested in helping the fighters. Haven't seen to much of Jones on the show so far. Couple guys look pretty decent but hard to tell as the level of talent on the first show varies from one fighter to the next.

    Only watched the first episode so far, but it feels like anything to hype the show and get the ratings back. Meh.

    Sounds like Bispings next opponent!

    UFC boss promises all 14 cast members of 'TUF 17' an official UFC fight

    UFC boss promises all 14 cast members of 'TUF 17' an official UFC fight | News

    "This season is so f---ing good, and I was so happy with all the guys, I told them, 'Every one of you guys are going to fight. You're going to get one more chance in the UFC. Every guy here is going to get another chance in the UFC,'" White said at a Thursday media session promoting this weekend's UFC 156 event.

    "The Ultimate Fighter 17" is currently airing Tuesday nights on FX. Two episodes have aired to date, and the show has generally been well received by MMA fans for a revised feel to the show, as well as one of the stronger casts in recent memory.

    White's revelation is a staunch departure from his recent handling of the cast from "The Ultimate Fighter 16," which was widely panned for its dull fights and resulted in just four fighters (including the season's two tournament finalists) earning an official UFC appearance following the exhibition matches from the reality competition series.

    While the UFC boss' revelation was surely fantastic news for the 12 "TUF 17" contestants who did not qualify for the final bout which takes place on April 13 at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale White said his matchmaker wasn't exactly thrilled with the challenge of adding 14 new fighters to a roster already bloated by the recent shuttering of UFC sister promotion Strikeforce.

    Of course, that didn't do anything to change the UFC boss' mind.

    "Joe Silva wants to f---ing kill me," White joked. "'It's impossible! It mathematically doesn't work.' I told him, 'Mathematically make it work.'
