The Ultimate Fighter, which has struck fame for stars such as Former Light Heavyweight Champion and current Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans, had become the stepping stone to world wide exposure for MMA all over the world with the dominant company in the UFC.
Season 10, Dana White has made it perfectly clear that he has intentions for Judo Gold Medalist, Satoshi Ishii, to join his cast of hopeful Heavyweights in the newest season, hopefully starting in late 2009.
The UFC has been known to make some pretty dynamic decisions when it comes to money making shows, matches, and grudges. So here's a thought, take Bobby Lashley and Kimbo Slice, and throw them on the show too. It has green written all over it like a hobo on a hot ham sandwich.
Here's another thought: grab Alistair Overeem, Antonio Silva, and a couple of other good heavyweights and throw them on the show too.
Coaches? Demian Maia and another top middleweight, and at the finale, they fight for the number one contender spot for Anderson Silva's title. Imagine the coaches they'd bring along. They'd have Maia's striking coach in Wanderlie Silva and the rest of their squad.
Dana White would be a madman not to take advantage of such an opportunity. It would be the greatest draw of any of the other TUF show out there. He could make much more money, but instead of telling people how terrible other fighters out there are, they should take this chance the way things are going. Maybe the winner of the show could also go up and challenge the winner of Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar.
