TUF 11. Shhhh The Brotards are Coming

Its tuf 11 you know what that means.

Brotards, on their way.

Haha at least there’s no Kimbo Slice on this season to bring all the brotards together under one flag.

I will admit, I do love watching TUFF though. Used to watch it casually, until Amir Sadollah won season 7, then I became addicted.

To be honest, the only TUF season that really sticks out in my mind is season 1, that had the most talented fighters. Season 5 was pretty memorable but only because Matt Serra is fucking hilarious. Correct me if I’m wrong, but almost every other season has been largely ex football players wanting to prove themselves in MMA?

No season 2 had some good fighters and seasons 3 and 4 fighters were decent. After that there have been only a couple that have been good.

Apparently there is a new format for TUF 11. Supposedly 28 guys will be at the start instead of 16. So I don’t know if some fighters get a first-round bye or it’s double elimination or what, but I guess we have to tune in to find out!

I think TUF is good for the sport. It basically shows to the brotards that MMA is work and you have to work stupid hard to be anything in MMA.

When your 15 year old son says that the show is too immature you know something is wrong. I won’t be watching either. I mean how many times can you watch idiots trash a house, lie about each other and not train hard enough.

The plot is older than Dan White’s love affair with stardom, and just as tiring.

One of the guys nick names is “Money Shot.” Really?

This has to be because of how weak the MW division is, they have no prospects.
