    I would normally be slightly annoyed TUF is going to delay another fight, but maybe it's good to let Geathje's brain rest as long as possible in-between fights.

    Poor Alvarez is now a stepping stone.

    Same with Alvarez. On the other hand though they are delaying it for WMMA in which the winner will get a paper belt? It's like the strawweight tuf all over again. Joanna became the first real strawweight champion when she beat Gadelha, that was the real title fight. Joanna will smoke whoever wins the 125lb belt then she'll defend it against Shevchenko.

    Gaethje is potentially medically suspended until January anyways.

    Yeah.. and she'll probably be turned into mincemeat by Joanna Champion, who'll then get beaten by Valentina for the fourth time.. lol

    None of this makes any sense to me. The filming is supposed to have started before the coaches were finalised???? The try out girls don't seem a strong enough bunch to be deserving of a belt, with some of the top Invicta girls missing, as well as the more obvious ones already in the UFC. Are non-English speakers ruled out of this search for a world champ btw?

    They should have had a knockout tournament. I suppose they could whittle 16 down to 8 and then introduce 8 beasts from the UFC into the house, that would be good tv.

    Yeah, probably. It's that improbable stuff that keeps me watching though.

    Why for fuck sake are we doing women flyweight man.....

    I forced myself to watch the last TUF
    Redemption and yeah I got through it, I wasn't stunned by it or treat it as must see TV, but I DVR'd it and got on with it whenever
    But this... nah I'm good I'm really good
    Surely this is the final nail in the coffin

    Carmouche, Chookagian, Pena, Macedo, Pudilova, Rawlings, VanZant , Cooper, Eye, Calderwood .... just some of the girls who should be fighting at 125 ..... not to mention Joanna or Shevchenko. Do they all think they can do a JJ and step in to take the belt from the new champ?

    Add in the likes of Maia, Niedzwiedz, Lee, Jackson and ok the Bellator division and a champ drawn from the try out girls is going to be a bit of a joke, hardly the best female flyweight on the planet, barely top ten.

    Seems to me the UFC rushed this, the coaches too, I'm still hoping they can pull off some kind of surprise though.

    No no..
    Trust me I ain't going out of my way to watch WMMA, when it's on the PPV's it's cool I like a piss break like the next guy
    The last shows with the women was like rubbing salt in my eyes,
    Hot flyweights? I'm good dude there's pornhub for that and non of the girls on there have cornrows, cauliflower ears and or quads bigger than mine

    i mean.. unless you search for that kinda stuff I'm sure it's on there, porn is weird these days

    I'm very excited for this season, I haven't watched TUF in years (like maybe TUF 11 or 12 was the last I watched). I believe the flyweight division will be the UFC's best division in a few years due to girls moving up and down to it. It's about time they made the division. Criticizing them for starting the division is short sighted, especially with Bellator putting more stake in their women's flyweight division.
