    Watching this finale reminded me that having the fighters not only wear the same black and white hues looks a lot better. Are they doing this just to show it's a TUF finale or is TUF not Reebok sponsored?

    I think Rebox refuses to let TUF scrubs wear their brand. Technically the TUF guys aren't UFC fighters until one wins the show, right? Then he gets the "six figure contract" and the others get peanuts.

    This is more than likely the answer.

    My thoughts on this was that this Ultimate Fighter happened BEFORE the Reebok deal was scheduled to take effect... Possible?

    Reebok is more selective than the TUF casting people are.

    Is it that these tuf fights don't count toward their actual records so their not "official" fights, therefore no sponsorship clothes or money?

    The finale is an official MMA fight and it counts on their pro records. Only the TUF house fights are exhibition 2 round matches.
