Real fighters are for real fighting events (ie fight nights)... not to have them fight in a warehouse where nobody can buy a ticket. Moreover, how can you rake such a title run seriously when they are fighting every week. Tuf Live is dead... and was dead on arrival. Zuffa wants 2 million dollars or more for a fight night  Zuffa will want an additional 40 million or more per year to replace Tuf live with a real live event series.

I only see one issue with this suggestion, and I'm strictly playing devils advocate. With 16 fighters out, you're pretty much eliminating a division for almost 4 months. Thats 5 PPVs, 3 FX cards, and a FUEL card, maybe 2. Do you think the other divisions can fill that gap?

You, sir, sound like you want a tournament to establish a legit no. 1 contender and the UFC will have none of that!

 Tuf Live is an abortion...  It's the worst of both worlds... The live sporting fan doesnt wanna a see a 30 minute countdown show that leads into an amatuer fight...  And the reality show fan wants to see guys jizzing in each others foods... Tuf live appeals to neither segment and that's why the ratings have continued to go down to where Zuffa is at risk of destroying a valuable franchise. Give the reality segment what they want... go back to being taped and move it to a better night. Give the live sporting fans what they want by giving them more accessible and real live sporting events... move the fuel main cards to FX which is accessible.

Imagine having 16 welterweights that are known in the house, maybe bend the rules a bit and let there be more freedom so guys will agree to join the show.. Rory McDonald, Josh Koscheck, Jon Fitch, Thiago Alves, Bahadurzada, Condit, Diaz, Ellenberger, Kampmann and so on.. Maybe they'd wanna get paid so throw em a few dollars.A million dollars to the winner and a title shot, pay them like you would if it were a real fight.. Maybe a ten thousand dollar knockout bonus or submission bonus. Idk just somethin me n my brother were talkin about, I'd love it if they did somethin like that cause I haven't watched this season of TUF and it seems like a lot of other people ain't into it either, just a fucking suggestion and idea.. Probly won't happen but I thought I would share.
