UFC minor league?

I'm really surprised the UFC hasn't implemented a "minor league", sort of like Strikeforce Challengers.

Instead of littering the pay-per-view main cards with sub par TUF fighters, they should have all of the upcoming talent fight in another league, which can be viewed on either Spike or VS.

This would be a good way to bring up young talent, as well as a good place to exile fighters instead of cutting them from the promotion entirely.

Anyone agree? If you disagree, why would it be a bad idea?

Wouldn't their minor league just be dark matches?

They'd rather have other orgs do their dirty work.

Why have a minor league when smaller orgs are doing all the work for them?

Strikeforce is its minor league. The Jake Shields situation is going to keep replaying itself. SF's top guys contract goes up, UFC pays him and he leaves.

Conversely guys they dont want anymore, or dont think are worth the money anymore will go to SF and fade away. Like Hendo.

I thought their minor league was TUF. That's how I always looked at it.

between tuf and ufn's, i don't think they need a minor league so to speak. plus they have all the dark matches (undercard fights), so there's that.
