A somewhat minor injury can eliminate guys from TUF. Forrest was almost eliminated because of a cut over his eye remember. If it was not in the UFC format then the cut would have been an after thought and only needed a week or so to heal up and take the stiches out. But on TUF he was almost gone because he had to fight again in about 3 days.
    totally agree about the TUF format. Also, Nate Quarry wins the mw class in the first season too if it wasnt for the ankle injury

    I've always wondered what it would be like to watch fleshless skeletons fight.

    You do have a good point but then again Xanatos makes a great point in giving exposure to FWs, which will be the bigger issue. In the end, people will mainly care about the finals (the title bout) in the tournament, and the fighters will have plenty of time for a decent training camp.

    If they're bringing in world class fighters, they could change the format of the show to concentrate more on training.

    I rather like the smaller weights. Normally their cardio is off the charts.

    Great, another weight class.... I hope MMA doesn't turn into boxing where there is a weight class every 3 to 5 pounds. What is flyweight, up to 125? Most people I know who watch MMA don't even care about the 135 weight class, there arguement is that how many grown men weigh 135 lbs, not many (at least not in Europe and greater North America). If they are going to make a new weight class, it should be around 230 or 235.

    just having the BW/FrW classes at TUF's disposal will be enough to keep us busy for awhile. i'm pretty happy with that.
    I didn't mean a bunch of noobs. I mean the best guys out there in the world who want to be the Flyweight champion. And it was to my understanding they have full intention of bringing this weight class into fruition in the UFC.

    I just saw it kinda like season four, the comeback. Accept this time it's just the best Flyweights out there who want the belt hold a tournament. I dunno, seemed like a decent idea to me instead of just not having that division at all.
