I often hear that TUF isn't relevant anymore. And it appeared that way for a while, the first few seasons made future champs and then there was a dead zone. But recently it has become very relevant again. As of Nov 4th 2017, after TJ and Rose took their titles and before GSP beat Bisping there were 5 TUF alum UFC Champions. 1. Michael Bisping Middleweight Champ 2. Robert Whittaker Interm Middleweight Champ 3. Tony Ferguson Interm Lightweight Champ 4. T.J. Dillashaw Bantamweight Champ 5. Rose Namajunas Woman's Strawweight Champ GSP beat Bisping to bring it down to 4, but then Nicco Montano won the Flyweight Champ to bring it back to 5. And Finally Tony got injured and stripped. So we currently stand at 4. I understand Nicco was a guaranteed title for TUF. But compared to the number of non-TUF fighters who fight in the UFC verus TUF fighters each year and the total number of belts TUF fighters are doing well above average.
