    I actually think you are that stupid to understand. It's okay. The world will keep going.

    lol must be another youngin. What Mooner is saying is that they are keeping them hostage so they don't go out and tell everyone who won or that they lost etc. <---that's UFC's reason.

    Fighter's reason is that they can train with the pros. And yes, they will fight again. You never know when someone might be injured and they place you back in. Look at Ryan Hall for example.

    Many many reasons why someone would stay. Free mansion and free food and free training from the best is enough to stay. But you're too dumb or young or both to understand. Oh look a white belt. Tell us what made you become a fan or sherdogger? How long have you been watching UFC/tuf/mma?

    Early seasons of TUF, they made the losers leave the house. The fighters were happy to stay in the house after they lost. Many of the fighters don't come from great backgrounds, the opportunity to live for free, free food of their choosing, some of the best training in the world is something not available to many of the fighters at home.

    it's likely that they want to stay in the UFC's good graces no?

    Still train with the coaches and because injuries and shit happens so you could always get back in if you looked good enough in defeat

    Pretty simple, they probably have a contract prohibiting them from leaving and possibly disclosing the results.

    The ufc keeps them there, also its a competition, why dislike or have animosity towards the fighters when you knew going into the house that there was a possibility of losing? Also, they get free rent, free food, free world class coaches and probably sponsored UFC clothes. I don't think I would wanna leave. <{poor?}>

    Because they need training partners / backup fighters? Not rocket science.

    Well the contestants who are still in the tournament need training partners and those who got eliminated are still given the chance to learn and train with pros. Plus if a contestant gets injured like a lot of the replies said before me theres a chance for someone to come back into the tournament.

    They used to make them leave. It was a big deal that in TUF 10, the Kimbo season, no one had to go home after losing (designed to keep Kimbo on the show)

    Sticking around at the house kinda began in the first season. Nate Quarry hung out after, acting as a assistant coach, even tho he had a ankle injury.
    Bobby Southworth and Chris Leben on the other hand were sent home only to return. Leben to join the competition again and Bobby to act as a replacement for Forrest if need be. So why wouldnt a fighter just stay? It only makes sence as you never know

    Valid question. Dana should show TUF losers that the UFC is an organisation that does not tolerate failure.

    Would certainly make them fight harder to win their bouts too.
    Do you wanna be a fuckin' fighter?

    Lmfao.. Simple answer, confidentiality clause in the contracts! They have to keep them around or spend the cash to put them up in a hotel in Vegas and isolate them from media, tv, friends and family, etc.. Until filming is finished. Simple answer, and that is the only reality to the question asked.

    Not the only. They actually did send people home in earlier TUF seasons.

    They actually just sent them to another house. I have heard the other house sucked. A bunch of bitter dudes who just lost and still can't talk to friends or family. They also had limited ability to get in training and no coaches.

    The real problem and reason they keep them in one house is actually training. The guys who are still in the competition need sparring partners. They would rather train with someone who is out of the competition so that they aren't giving too much to a potential next opponent
