I think TUF is amazing and well worth the time if you're a big fan of the sport! :)
28 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to agree about watching TUF for Diego dishing it out. But I'm not going to lie...watching the fight between Forrest and Stephan in the finale was one of the most memorable and exciting things I can ever remember on television. Even to this day, I have NO idea how they picked a winner...it would have been SO tough.

And I think you brought up a great point. UFC was drowning...fast...and they needed something to put them through the roof. I think TUF did that for them and the enormity of its success was a big shocker to Dana White and fans of the sport.

Me? I'm EXTREMELY glad it came out because I've been a fan of the UFC for as long as I can remember. I really like Chris Leben and was sad to see it end for him so quickly with that cut in the semi finals. I also think Koscheck is a good fighter even though I didn't really like him as a person.

Also, I DO agree about the Bobby/Stephan fight, but I'm glad it turned out the way it did. Not only do I think Forrest would have walked all over Bobby, but Bobby didn't deserve it anyway.

What I was trying to say about the whole thing is; I think TUF is amazing, I haven't missed a single season yet, and I look forward to even MORE UFC and TUF to come in the future :)
