It's gotta be consistently hard to get real good talent on TUF. If fighters are good enough, chances are they've already been signed.. But, There will be another champ from that specific batch, I still believe Dodson will come back and beat Mighty Mouse

The crazy thing is Dillishaw didn't even win that TUF. Dodson, a natural flyweight, knocked him out.

The point of the show is to develop talent for the weight classes by senior UFC fighters and champions. Nowhere does it say the show is supposed to create champions. However, we've had Forrest Griffin, Matt Serra, Rashad Evans, and a slew of other top tier talent come from the show. I think that in itself justifies its reason.

right now it's:-

s1 - Forrest - won show early 2005 and won title in mid 2008
s2 - Rashad - won show late 2005 and won title in late 2008
s4 - Serra - won show late 2006 and won title early 2007
s14 - Dillashaw - finals of TUF late 2011 and won title early 2014

plenty of title contenders to go along with it: Florian, Sanchez, Koscheck, Diaz, Maynard, Matt Brown, Bader, Dodson

most of the guys are journeymen and gate keepers, plenty are cans. But as far as picking good fighters, they do a decent job, w/ more emphasis on personalities than top prospects the last few years - it is a reality tv show after all.
