    Default TUF China... what's going on?

    So I just watched the 2nd Episode of TUF China & I have a few questions.

    1. Are the coaches for this season even in the same weight class?
    2. How was the cast selected?
    I didn't see the 1st Episode, so I don't know if they had to fight to get into the house. But there was a guy(Li Jin Ying) who literally didn't even know how to throw a punch. Cung Le said "to stay on the show you have to go a few rounds with one of the coaches so we can see what you have." He was easily taken down and instantly covered up & the coaches just looked at each other like What The Fuck Is This!?!
    So Li Jin Ying willingly left the show.
    3. Are these guys even fighters?
    I searched a few of the names on Sherdog and nothing popped up. Another reason I ask that is because the 1st fight was really really weak. One guy was easily taken down, had his back taken, was easily flattened out, & eventually TAPPED TO STRIKES like he was Bob Sapp or some shit.
    Unless you're Bob Sapp or a huge pussy(which I guess could still be Bob Sapp) who the fuck taps to strikes?

    One episode down and so far I have to say this season looks absolutely atrocious.
    I'll watch a few more and see if they start getting better.
    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.

    Favorite Fighter: JIM MILLER.
    Scariest Dude on the Planet: TYRONE SPONG.
    Other Favorites: Chris Lytle, Martin Kampmann, Joe Lauzon, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor, Paul Daley, Ross Pearson, Donald Cerrone, Renan Barao, Glover Texiera, & Alistair Overeem.

    The whole thing is a money grab. Zuffa would cream their collective over priced jeans if MMA could take off in China. But there is such a lack of talent in that country. Almost a dozen other areas would have been better for a season of TUF than China.

    I can see what you're saying.
    I'll watch one or two more episodes to see if anything good comes from it, like a High kick, some good combos, or any type of ground game.
    You'd think these guys would be somewhat good at Judo at least, and there was a good Judo toss in that 1st fight, but I'm not holding my breath for fireworks.

    Judo and Karate is taught in Gym classes over there. But after rechecking that, I got it confused with Japan.
    So I don't know what they teach in Chinese gym class.

    Ok. I wasn't sure if it was a slip or if you knew of more info that Judo was becoming more wide spread in China. They've actually started to promote Judo to increase its practice with the Chinese within the past year.
