Its really a mixed blessing. It's good to attract more followers. But, it dramatizes the sport. Im cool with it as long as they dont do that stuff on the PPVs.

Dear God, it better not turn into WWE.

TUF 5 & 6 will air in 2007, and TUF 7 will air in 2008.UFC just signed it with Spike.. All I know about TUF 5 is that Jens Pulver is confirmed as one of the coaches.. I'll keep digging.

I actually think that TUF is good for the UFC. I know alot of people hate the show ext, but I am looking past that, which some idiots cant! Lets face it the UFC needs to have new blood come in, with retirements and poor showings the fighters are limited in shelf life and you dont want a 4/27 fighter showing up on a PPV. so new blood is good. I also like that the coaches personalities get to be shown a bit. I would love for the formats to be spiced up all the time like say a reality show like survivor or something. Like this time it is all LW fighters, but maybe one camp could be made up of BJJ guys and one of strikers and then the names get pulled out of a hat for fighters. Or one camp and everyone gets to compete to win the right to challenge or something. Just a few ideas to throw out their.

BJ Penn was rumoured to be a coach and 4 vets of ufc lw and 4 newcomers but not confirmed

I heard Penn too. Should have mixed HWs in there too though.. That division is starving.

totally Agree, if they are using the TUF show to feed the divisions then they should expand the format to include the HW as well. They have about as many guys dropping from welter to light as they have in the HW right now so why not.

Just rumer right now. I dont know about either guy. Pulver went down fast and UFC is not happy as they had plans for him and we know the only guy more moody than Shamrock is Penn so who knows.

Class shifting pisses me off. Rashad, Jardine, Stevenson, etc etc. Thats crap, they enter whatever weight class is being casted to get their shot then drop. The whole point is to grow a division, she should be contracted to fight in a weight class.

I agree, I have nothing against a established fighter in Welter moving up or down to go for a strap, but if they are trying to "bulk" up a class they should have to fight in that class.

It is a bunch of crap. Where are all the HW fighters at? That division needs the biggest infusion of fighters and talent. Come on Dana get to work.
