    The point is that the UFC fucked themselves over by making this TUF for a world title. They embarrassed themselves and cheapened what it means to be a UFC champion.

    You could almost just stop at the fact that Nicco Montano won the whole thing. She now has a 4-3 pro record and has more cancelled fights than I can remember anyone having because she can't stay healthy and can't be bothered to show up in shape.

    Sijara Eubanks was the runner up, although she didn't even make it to the title fight because she's also unprofessional and couldn't handle the weight cut. 7-6 pro record, lost to Bethe Correia (what more can you say?), probably would have been cut if she lost her last fight.

    Roxanne Modaferri - perennial journeywoman. 4-5 record since coming back to the UFC.

    Robertson - 6-4 UFC record, journeywoman.

    Montana de la Rosa - good win against Lipski recently but nothing special.

    Rachel Ostovich - released.
    Barb Honchak - released.
    Shana Dobson - released.
    DeAnna Bennett - released.
    Melinda Fabian - released.
    Karine Gevorgyan - released.
    Maia Stevenson - released.
    Christina Marks - released.
    Ariel Beck - released.

    The only real bright spots are Lauren Murphy, who has worked her way to a title shot.

    Pretty sad state of affairs, possibly the worst TUF ever.

    Things like this take years and years to build up. Now, when every single one of these girls goes back to the regional circuit they can be marked as a former-UFC fighter. Those promoters win, they win, and their opponents win. Now more girls are fighting and ready to try out fo the UFC. It's a cycle and a process.

    So cringe. Murphy was a total twat that season, but Eddie handled that situation poorly.

    And all I remember about the season is those two swimming laps for $10k.
