    I honestly would. The guy comes off as having a hilarious / mischievous personality, and he's actually pretty decent at wrestling. I don't know if he could win the whole thing, but I think he could hang around long enough to make it interesting.

    Also the drama between him and Dana would comical, it would remind me of Roy Nelson and DW's little feud.

    Uh, yeah. Probably only the first few episodes before I got tired of the cliffhanger/drama shit.

    The only TUF I have watched since TUF 10 was Ronda/Tate's season. I can't really watch TUF anymore, it was played out a long time ago

    The trick is watch them all at one time TBH. That's what I used to do, and I would avoid spoilers in the meantime.

    He's never faced tough competition before. Hell, Kimbo Slice looked amazing until he was on TUF. I think it exposes a lot of people.

    Amazing? You mean like against Petruzelli?

    At the rate you're posting, you will soon be the worst orange belt around.

    Last welterweight to win it was Kelvin Gastelum, a far superior fighter to Askren. So I'd agree with the guy you quoted.

    Tuf 20 was pretty good.

    My favorite parts were: Randa's butt, Tecia's butt, Carla's butt, Felice's butt, Angela's butt, Jessica's legs.

    They need more seasons like that, imo.

    Askren on TUF would be a great idea to see if he could hang in the UFC. Nelson was far more accomplished than Askren before he went on TUF to prove himself so I see no reason why Askren couldn't do it.

    The programs format needs to be remixed.

    Askren would most definitely make an interesting coach and I would tune in. I've skipped the last 2 consecutive TUF seasons.
