Default New Ultimate Fighter series, what a stinker! (Spoilers)

I hope this series picks up, because that was the most god awful start to a season. Santos can barely speak English and is not exactly a big name. Brock looked totally uncomfortable the whole time. His conversations with the fighters was really wooden. Obviously there are a lot of nerves but Dana White should have his head examined for choosing these two coaches.


And the first fight was the most boring lay and pray you will ever see. And there was no fight to get into the house.[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Not a huge fan of TUF but one thing I did like was the contrast in Lesnar going for mindset/conditioning while JDS focused on the skills of the fighters.

I havn't bothered with the last two seasons of tuf. I watched this one for half an hour though then turned it off because the whole thing just had an awkward feeling.

What's Brock going to teach these guy's exactly?

Brock's not a team player and doesn't even want to train properly himself and won't last a round against JDS.

It's a joke.

I enjoyed it. The only thing that sucked was the actual fight. Lay and pray.

And also Dana needs to lay off the shrugs and front delt work. He's starting to look like a mole.

?

He was in line to fight for the championship before Cain got injured.

Forrest wasn't a champ before he coached.
Koscheck wasn't a champ before he coached. He still isn't a champ.
Bisping wasn't a champ before he coached and he hasn't even fought for a title.

Yea, he has some badly protracted shoulder girdle. Seriously, that guy needs to start doing some bent-over barbell rows ASAP and maybe do some shoulder girdle stretches.

You are joking, the last series was the best one ever. Koschec vs gsp.

Bisping, Sonnel as coaches anyone lol.

I think this whole thing is not about tuf being any good anymore. Its a promotional tool, thats it. Dana doesnt need his head examined, its the best move he can make. Hes keeping his cash cow in the spot light as much as he can after getting his ass handed to him, ensuring that people wont forget him. Also, it's great exposure for dos santos who is obviously going to shit kick brock and maybe even become champ. Think about it, if that happens people are going to be like "who is this guy" and lose interest. But know theyll know him from the show. More genious at work by Dana White.

TUF is quality. I think ALOT of these guys look ****ing awful but with the right training and guidance they become the next big things. Look at what TUF has produced in Griffin, Koscheck, Evans etc

Good points you say there , but the thing is I love the show. I've watched every series apart from one. Whatever way you look at it it is one hell of a step down from the superstar that is gsp, and his alter ego koschec.

Personally my only real downer, is if Brock can't handle things and it becomes car crash TV.
