    who said that? Dodson still has a good chance at becoming champ as well. That season of TUF could produce 2 champs

    I remember reading a post on here saying something similar to this: the UFC's glory days of TUF fighters becoming champions is over.

    I don't remember perfectly but I do remember reading it. This was a year or more ago.

    Man I badly want to see Dillashaw-Dodson II for the title. TUF Finale rematch for the belt would be wild. I don't care if it doesn't make sense, their styles would make for a sick fight.

    Those tinyweight seasons had just as much of a chance to produce champions as the first two seasons did, if not more. A load a talent was hidden in there. Also, TUF 20 sort of kills that saying by default.

    A lot of people. Every new season of TUF, you hear a lot of people shit on TUF competitors. People say they aren't as good as they used to be and how they don't produce contenders, just mid tier guys.

    He has improved a lot since TUF. His footwork and striking now have almost no resemblance to a few years back. No surprise though since he's young and an Alpha Male guy that he would make big strides.

    Not even champs, you know how many people on here say cancel TUF, TUF sucks, TUF doesnt produce good fighters, nobody good goes on TUF anymore?

    There are 21 top 15 ranked fighters produced from TUF and most of them are from season 10 to 18.

    Dillashaw is a TUFer? I didn't even know. Quite paying attention to it years ago. Hell, to be honest I never paid much attention to it. I'd just DVR the shows and fast forward to the fights. Quite doing even that much a couple of years ago.
