      You obviously didn’t watch GSP-Kos or Miller-Bisping. Only my opinion obviously but i found both seasons coachs hillarious.

      • Rod says:

        Miller-Bisping was a great season. Actually the last few were great, even the Brock-JDS season. I don’t think the fighters are making this one less boring, for me it’s more the live format I guess.. The fights are live, without a live crowd to hype it up.. No pre editing or background commentaries or any of that either.. Not to mention, they ran into their little injury problem. For me, I miss the old TUF ways. They finally reached mainstream with it, but completely switched the format from something that already seemed to work fine to try something new.. IMO not the best idea.
        (I do see where some people are coming from when there isn’t so much pranks and stuff, but damn, that’s the kinda stuff they make shows like jersey shore and punk’d for.. It makes for great entertainment but in the end I just wanna see how far the fighters take it.)

    Some of these guys are a–wipes. Tickle is just a joke and annoying. For him showing off a Training Mask without the nozzle piece. Faber is just gay. The first 2 fighters were the only ones worth watching. Fabers choices are horrible and make boring fights. That guy that didn’t want to inform on his friend was just being a whiny punk. I would of sold out my friend, for my team since your team is your family. I want to see more pranks, they should pull a huge one on Tickle that punkassbitsh

    • Xaninho says:

      He just met his ‘team’ a few weeks ago. They aren’t family they’re all there to win this season, and in case you didn’t notice…There can be only ONE winner per weightclass! So ultimately it’s still an individual thing in the end. Fuck the team he did good not ratting out his friend.

      They won’t be there when he needs them, but his friend always will.

    me and vitor go way back and yes he is very annoying

    What do you expect? The fighters make the ratings and this fight was super boring!


    They need to get rid of that gay ass intro and put back the old song
