    I’m a TUF fan, I think it is a great opportunity for young fighters to get a solid contract, and some national exposure, but it seems like almost every season as the names are announce people start talking about how great the talent is this season, and a bunch of these guys will stick around. I don’t know, I’ve stopped getting too excited, and take the wait and see attitude. Don’t get me wrong, I am looking forward to the season, but I’m just waiting to see how good some of these guys really are.
