The Ultimate Fighter is a show that has become pretty boring and stale the last couple of seasons. Since The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, the show has become almost unwatchable because nobody knows the fighters on the show and there are no good storylines.
The early days of The Ultimate Fighter launched careers and many have become world champions in their respected weight classes. Now, the winner is usually someone who no one has ever heard of and honestly no one cares who wins the show.
The rumors are out that Dominick Cruz will go up against Urijah Faber on the next installment of TUF. The two men actually do not like each other so that may create a watchable show. But I do believe that there are better options out there.
