White: Every TUF 17 fighter gets a UFC fight

 

According to UFC president Dana White, this season's TUF fights are so good and so competitive, he couldn't bring himself to cut a single competitor. Not one. When the season finishes airing on FX, each man will get at least one more chance to compete in the UFC.

"This season is so f------ good, and I was so happy with the guys, I told them, every one of you guys are going to fight. You're going to get one more chance in the UFC," White said. "Every guy here is going to get one more chance in the UFC. Joe Silva wants to f------ kill me. 'It's impossible. It mathematically doesn't work.' I said, 'Mathematically make it work.'"

White said whatever the UFC would have to do to make it happen, they would do, including adding one extra fight on each card until each contestant gets his opportunity.

For sure. Came in here to say the same. I think this kid could have ended up one of the top fighters in the competition if it wasn't for being matched against Uriah Hall, possibly the best guy in the competition. It was a great and competitive fight. He deserves another shot.

I've watched it so far and been totally into it.   I mean come on, it's Bones and Sonnen.  How freakiing awesome is that?   If Sonnen either wins every round and loses to Bones or straight up beats Bones, I promise I will totally shit my pants, smell it, and maybe even swallow some.   If that's what it takes.   WAR SONNEN!
