    I think it would be a great idea. The show definitely needs a new direction, its been getting worse and worse every year. I thought that Rampage vs Forrest would bring it back, but seeing as you rarely saw either of them train or anything it was a big let down for me. Im not excited for next season whatsoever, but if they were to bring on that idea, I would definitely be hyped.

    This post confuses me. What are you trying to say. Both of them trained with their usual guys, except for the possible exception of Lachida I don't remember hearing him training with Silva regulary. As far as difference Franklin did a lot in the second fight. No bashing at all, but this post can be interpreted in multiple ways.

    TTT Team Brazil vs. Team USA would be great. I have said before my dream PPV would be Brazil vs. USA. The national pride aspect would add alot of intensity and meaning. USA vs. Canada was pretty bogus because Canada can't stack up to USA in MMA but Brazil could. Great idea rep'd

    Overall though, I would LOVE to see Brazil vs USA. They need to do some different with TUF because each season keeps getting worse.

    well like it i said its not all of all brasilian men.. plus most of the time its only the younger guys.. they think they are all that and shit.. i used to be like that when i was 15 and training jiu jitsu but you know.

You get one or two episodes every season where they go off the reservation and thats it.
    i'm with you there.. cuz i bet a lot of guys from high school and middle school who train like Judo, Tae Kwon Doe or Wrestle are fans of the UFC. but when they go to watch The Ultimate Fighter show all they see are guys getting drunk and destroying the house. thats not an example for those younger kids you know?
    and not only for them but i also want to see those guys train, learn and evolve out of their fighting element might it be just Wrestling or Jiu Jitsu.. I wanna see them go through like grueling workouts like the ones on UFC All Access and than battle inside the octagon and show off their new skills.

    I was just talking about Alves (that's what the bold was for). I definitely think that one of Lyoto/Shogun/Wand will one day get the belt. I think it will either be Wand or Lyoto.

    I'm not sold on Alves just yet. I'd like to see him fight Kos or Diego before I make any predictions about his future. Preferably Kos.

    Did I misread something or do I have the gist of it correct?
