Seriously?

Since we're going this direction...

Dana is there any way I could coach the next TUF that is UK based?

not_really_sure -  What the shit? That was more disappointing than getting clothes for Christmas Phone Post

Unless it's an Ed Hardy tee with a lion raping a dragon on a skateboard design on it. You better check yourself bro.

Seriously though, they seem to really be getting desperate to breathe life back into this tired show that's already on life support as it is.

"Hey guys, lets take two of our biggest draws and put them on the shelf for 8 months so they can star in a shitty reality TV show on FX that nobody watches!"

Someone actually thought this was a good idea.


Well said Sir, well said.

Media Monster - back-to-back title shots in two different weight-classes. Has that ever even been done before?


Dan Henderson when he fought Rampage to unify the Pride & UFC belts. When he lost to Rampage, his next fight was against Anderson.

Randy Couture lost to Chuck at 205, "retired" and then came back to fight Sylvia for the heavyweight belt in his next fight.

Frankie Edgar is getting back to back to back title shots 2 at 155 and next with Aldo

Shows like TUF are not meant to be around as long as it has been, that's why ratings have gone to shit. When are they going to realize that people just don't want to see it anymore. The ONLY TUF season that would get good ratings at this point is a "veterans of mma" season or a "comeback" season with some known names.

This Bones/Chael/151/TUF fiasco is worse than the Diaz soap opera - you get whiplash trying to follow this stuff.

Fox must really have Zuffa by the balls for this to go down.

Seems like it's probably another case of...let's see if throwing money at a problem will solve things. We shall see.

UFC needed a BIG spark as clearly TuF was dying a slow death. If Chael/Jon can't get ratings up, nothing much can.

Of course, we'll still get a cast full of tattoos, mohawks, whiners and talent that is at best a few years away from making an impact, but we'll still watch for the head coach drama.

Sadly a month ago I would have said 2 titles losses, what is he gonna talk his way into fighting Bones?

It's like watching WWE, or worse yet, boxing...sad day for the sport.

Arguably I understand why some aren't excited, but I'm stoked!!! I think we will see a different side of Chael when it comes to coaching! I think he will be a great coach IMO! Phone Post
