Maybe they have grown tired of only getting a few talented/skilled and driven fighters.
The only guy I've seen on TUF 3 who really looks like he belongs there is Bisping. I think there is little doubt he'll win on Sat.
OTOH, on UFC Unleashed, I saw a previous TUF final, must have been the 170's. One guy was tall, thin, and a striker. The other was shorter, and a grappling machine. They went all out start to finish. No signs of gassing or anything. They deserved a contract. I don't know that Ed or Kendall would be a good catch for UFC.
No doubt Bisping is the best of this group. Ed for all his talk has gotten lucky. After listening to him complain about how he didn't get picked up by Tito and all the I'm thebest guy here I really expected better. I think if he gets in with a quality fighter he's gona get beat. Just my opinion.
Cool,thanks for posting that. Sounds like this different direction might be interesting and we'll know for sure that the TUF guys floating around after the season are legit.
I think that Bisping is the only great guy at 205, but I think Kendall and Khalib both have a lot of potential at 185. Herman hasn't lived up to his own hype for sure. His standup game needs a lot of work.
I have never seen so many Pussies in my life, this season has sucked! I hope Bisping takes the contract and Herman gets his ass handed to him.
Those guys are just lucky I wasn't on the show. Imagine how embarrassing it would have been to have 45 year old guy with a beer gut in the making kicking their asses.

I had already heard that they were going to use UFC fighters for the next show. It's funny how much **** Nick Diaz always talks about these guys from TUF, then got his ass beat buy one them, and now will be one. And for those that read to the bottom of Pit Bull's link...I guess Frank Trigg was tired of losing via RNC.
Anyone see the Bisping fight? He called it, flying knee to the head. The first fight of the night was worthless!
i may try get on next season,
I have a real reccord and have been trainning since who knows how long(since i was 13, ) Now being 20, i am pretty sure i want bring to the next level.
Good luck bro! If it's something you're considering doing, then I say go for it.Originally Posted by Dr Liftalot
Next season all ready started. But maybe you could try for the year after, Good Luck and Kick Some ASS!:bruce1:Originally Posted by Dr Liftalot
You will never hear me complain about getting free fights on cable TV, but I must admit I'm was a bit dissapointed when I heard next season will have veteran fighters.
I look at TUF as sort of a farm system, sure most of the young guys are not UFC material, but it's fun watching the one's develop who are. Not to mention I feel like the vets have already had their shot.
I mean for God's sake.... why bring in Travis Lutter? And don't even get me started on Keith Hackney being there. Hackney didn't even have success in the early UFC's. He has a 2-2 record, his last fight was in 1995 (which he lost) and the only two guys that he has beaten are Joe Son (0-4 record) and Emmanuel Yarborough a 600lb sumo (1-2 record).
Not to mention about half of the season four cast has been beaten by fighters on previous TUF's. It's not like these vets can blame a lack of experience and I sure don't see much of a learning curve left in most of these guys career's.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to watch the show (and enjoy it), but I have my fingers crossed that TUF will go back to it's old format after season 4.
Are you talking about the final? Isn't that on Saturday?Originally Posted by Korrupted
The semi-finals were last night, and yes the finals are on sat.Originally Posted by Beowulf
Bisping vs. Ross, must have been a replay. Bisping definitely has skills.
Nope, Ross lost to Grove at first then Bisping beat him last night.Originally Posted by Beowulf
Yeah he should be fun to watch. Bisping got rocked w/ a punch last night; If Ross would have followed up he could have taken the win.
