    season 7 was my personal favorite. it was the first season to have one big 32 man tournament. amir, cb, gerald harris, matt brown, matt riddle, and tim creudur were just a few names to come off that season.

    Im still saying this season was the best by far!

    Season 1 was good, it was at a time where the UFC needed new faces and talent, and they certainly got that done with the cast. But my major qualms with season 1 was

    A.) There was no fights to get into the house. This is something I think is severly underrated. Getting 16 names thrown at you in an hour episode, and only getting to see 2 of them fight is really hard to pick a favourite/winner. Especially for a casual fan who doesnt know a single name.

    B.)The Challenges. Absolutly stupid imo.

    C.)"Team Re-shuffling"

    The season its self was packed with lots of personalities and some pretty good fights. But I dont think the fights were all that great myself. (If my math is correct)Including the finale...and the cut Kenny had over Leben there was 4 (T)KOs, 4 subs and 4 decisons.Not something to write home about.

    Not to mention that there was a few episodes that didnt have a fight. (The first two if im not mistaken)

    Season 5 was good too dont get me wrong. But Again I(personally) didnt like that there were no fights to get into the house. And I wasnt a big fan of the only one weight class. BUT it was the ressurection of my favourite weight class so of course I watched every episode foaming from the mouth lol.

    If I remember correctly it was packed with awsome finishes, A street fight, And Penns team getting picked apart, In a new divison they were trying to bring back. Cant complain with that.

    I think if the coaches for this season would have been two legit legends the consensus might be different. The coaches were not the best, but imo the fights were hands down.

    Shit im baked and not good at math, but(I think) this season had over 40 fights with over 30 of them getting finished. How can you NOT like that people lol.

    The Return Of......
    this was easily the most talented group since the first couple of seasons. it was untapped weight classes which means multiple fighters have a good chance to stick around and shine for more than a couple of fights.

    im voting yes, but only because of the challenges in the first season kinda brought that season down.

    also, like season 1 (and maybe season 2 i dont really recall it as well) the fighters seemed to go for it more. to try and win and or put a stamp on it saying i deserve to be here. even in some of the losses you could see the guy had skills. too often in later seasons guys seemed to play it safe just trying to make it to the finals. its like they dont realize a good spectacular effort going for it all in a loss will get you another chance to shine.

    Seasons 1 and 5 were definitely better. Listening to Bisping's cocky voice during every episode certainly didn't help.

    It's also going to absolutely not happen, because they are in opposite weight classes.

    Seasons 1, 2, and 5 were great, but I found this season thoroughly entertaining and I really think they got a talented group of fighters over all. This was one of the most exciting seasons by far. Lots of these guys just have the killer instinct, with the technique to match, something a lot of fighters have been missing in the other seasons. I also think a lot of these guys will be staying around and putting on exciting fights.

    It was cool to see a slightly less intense and more focused side of Mayhem. You can tell he genuinely wanted his guys to succeed and was very invested in their training.

    I don't think Bisping was playing the role of a douche. He just is a douche.

    If my math is right... this season, including the fights to get into the house had 20KOs, 13Subs and 10Decisions- 77% finish rate. Crazy imo.

    I still got the first episode on my PVR.
