Just watched last nights premiere. Havent enjoyed TUF since Rampage/Rashad really but last nights episode was really good. I thought the redemption element and tj vs codys rivalry freshened it up a bit.

Anyone notice the episode started off with a bunch of fighterssaying how much there lifes sucked after TUF though? "I got divorced after TUF" "I needed two surgeries after TUF" etc

I actually enjoyed the episode. Love that Joe Stevenson and Jesse Taylor are on it. I haven't watched a TUF since the Kimbo season. I'm definitely keeping up with this season.

 

FUN FACT: It was filmed right up the street from my house. It was pretty cool seeing the outside (of the house) camera shots. The neighbors hated those 3 months of filming. They had the bright ass, tall production lights on from like 7pm-6am every single day. The production crew were also loud 24/7 while on breaks. They'd take their breaks in the actual street/sidewalk instead of the driveway inside the property. My neighborhood is quiet as fuck.

One of them was James Krause who didn't make it to the house but he is in the UFC already

I want to like it and hope it's good, but first episode a guy cant make weight and is booted, and Gilbert lays on what looks like a shell of Seth. IMO the older guys are going to get smoked by the younger guys that didn't even have UFC fights

TJ got punked by Dana and Cody over the replacement fight. Needs to learn to stand up for himself

Lots of dudes always come into TUF looking juiced to the scalp. I'm sure they do half ass drug testing, but it's certainly not USADA.

Irish Pride - Joe daddy gonna win if he's close to his old skill level

Let's be honest, I'm not saying he will or will not win, but after 49 fights and having taken  some pretty hard losses along the way, not to mention having like 20 kids, do you think he's really gonna be at his old skill level?

James Krause is in the house...his opponent didn't make weight so he's fighting the alternate later on.

He's way undersized to compete at welterweight nowadays, been through a lot in life, has a lot of mileage on his body and is not young anymore.He'd be my last pick if I was a TUF coach.

I agree it was great. 

 

Their stories are all awesome because they are veterans of the show and the sport. Also means they are more polished fighters.

 

Ill be watching this whole series. My pick is Krause ftw
