    I'm not sure how you can call yourself an MMA fan and not watch TUF. Every season produces elite talent, and it just produced another champion in Dillashaw.

    True MMA fans do whatever the fuck they want and don't let trendy assholes who are obsessed with their public image dictate what they do.

    I swear to god, bullshit "news articles" like this should make the "journalist" punishable by death.

    What a pretentious dick, nobody is allowed to get an early bird look at the next generation of prospects because Natalia Jastrzab who apparently decided his or her ideas were so good they warranted a blogspot and a domain name said so.

    I don't get this at all? I love watching fights, Ultimate Fighter features up and coming fighters with...fights. Why wouldn't I watch it?

    U.F is being used to grow the brand and also the sport. If a "true mma" fan doesn't respect that or appreciate the product they can get bent.

    Pretty much. Everybody just read the misquoted title.

    I didn't bother reading the article either, but the excerpt that you quoted could be proven on an almost daily basis by reading Sherdog.

    Exactly TK, bitching about who is a "true MMA fan" is like teenage girls bitching about "who is a true fan" of some f**king boy band or something.

    There's so much garbage "journalism" in MMA. Just ignore it.
