I don't know for sure if the US version of TUF is really over with or just on hiatus for the moment, but it seems there won't be another one any time soon. Usually the next season's coaches and weight classes would be announced by now, but I haven't heard about any tryouts or any talk about prospective coaches. So, how do you feel about the end of the TUF era? I'm sure most of you are, like me, quite relieved that future big fights will not be delayed by coaching responsibilities. Likewise, I'm sure most of you had stopped watching or caring about TUF several years ago. I used to watch almost every episode of every season, but the last full season I watched was the JDS vs Brock season. I watched some of the following season, the one with Dodson, Brandao and Dillashaw. Then I didn't watch it at all until the Ronda/Tate season. I've been a WMMA fan since the Gina Carano days, so I was interested in seeing the first female TUF, and was intrigued by the novelty of the men and women living in the same house. After a few episodes, the novelty wore off and I didn't watch any more til the Finale. I never watched any of the foreign TUFs, and only watched the first two episodes of the Women's Strawweight season. Yet, despite watching only a handful of episodes these last few years, the thought of no more TUF kinda bums me out. I loved TUF for the first 10 seasons or so. Never missed an episode thanks to a new technology called a "DVR". See, back then there wasn't a fight night every weekend or so like there is now. Heck, back then they didn't even air prelims. In those years I was starving for more MMA. Just couldn't watch enough fights. So weekly TUF fights were an excellent way to satiate my MMA cravings. They weren't always great fights, but they were fights. Some seasons ended up being extremely entertaining. Seasons 5 and 7 were my favorites. From Gabe Ruediger's weight cut, to Matt Brown kicking Jeremy May's head off for messing with his tobaccy, it was just really good television. I do hope this is the end of the series, at least for the moment. With full cards almost every weekend, there's just no point in watching a single low-quality TUF match every Wednesday. However, if they were to do just one more season, I wouldn't mind them doing Heavyweights again. Even if the fights end up being hilariously bad like they were in Season 10, it would at least make for some decent TV.
