    I started to notice that this past finale. The first season that I watched from the beginning and not on replay was Season 5 and I loved the fact that the finale featured pretty much all fights of people from the show. That is something that I miss a lot about the older seasons. If the talent pool is so bad that the fighters from the show can't fill out a card, that's just sad. Dana should put on more fight nights instead of filling the card with already established fighters taking up the contestants one shot

    But he did come back. He faought in Feb. and is in talks to fight at UFC 101.

    I agree on the theory as a whole but you really have to make a showing in the house and handle your self well. I would be surprised if Pierce was invited back after this weeks show but there have been several fighters that didn't fight great on the show but ended up fighting several fights for UFC. I think Dana and Joe know that many of these guys are fighting out of thier weight class and that can really change things.

    i would def agree with u, but i think it will be changing this year, it always seems as tuf progress less tuf fights end up on the live card, for example this i think they are only having the two finals on the card,

    i would def agree with your point about winning tuf, not everyone who wins tuf does the best

    Interesting observation. I always thought of the finale as kind of a "thank you" to the fighters for being on the show. The ones who don't make it all the way get a last fight to prove themselves, and a payday to go with it. i always assumed fighters got the chance as long as they didn't fuck up or do something stupid on the show.

    there were plenty of guys from season 7 that should have got a try...gerald harris comes to mind. he deserved a fight more than guys like cramer, cale, etc.

    The guy who wins the show makes way more money then the others. Thats pretty much the motivation to do well. But ya I agree, in a lot of ways just being on the show is a try out for the finale, as long as you aren't terrible you'll at least get 1 fight in the UFC.
