The Ultimate Fighter has been a reality show that has lost some attention after the past couple seasons and lacks storylines tremendously. This past season saw Junior Dos Santos coach against Brock Lesnar. Both are exciting fighters in the octagon, but on national television they lacked the excitement. JDS barely speaks English and Lesnar isn’t the same WWE superstar he once was.
I say they try a comeback season again as they did in 2006 with season 4. In that season former UFC fighters had another shot at fame and the winner of the show even got a title shot if they beat out all the other contestants. Such contestants from season 4 included veterans like Matt Serra, Jorge Rivera, Din Thomas, Scott Smith, Patrick Cote, Travis Lutter, Chris Lytle, and Shonie Carter. All have had pretty good careers since the show. Eventual winner Travis Lutter nearly upset Anderson Silva at UFC 67 and Matt Serra did the seemingly impossible and knocked out Georges St. Pierre to win the welterweight title. Both fights were thrillers and the show was exciting because fans already knew these fighters. I say they switch it up a bit and throw some heavyweights into the mix.
This list is a bunch of fighters who would love to have another shot at stardom and would create huge ratings. The only qualification I used was that the fighters must have fought at least one time in the UFC.
