    They changed it
    They film M-Th & Fri evening they air the show from the prior 4 days & then they show the fight LIVE
    Better for TUF but tht sucks for the coaches bc it will be 12 weeks instead of 6

    That was footage from TUF 14 Bisping vs Miller and that will air on Spike on its original format. After that, TUF will be on FX and it will air live.

    The fights will air live
    I wonder how they will fill the minutes if its a quick TKO.
    They will need to keep about 20 minutes free at the end for the possibility of the third round

    So now since the fighters will be in the house for THIRTEEN WEEKS (lol) instead of six, the coaches will be training for their fight as well as coaching because they will be fighting a few weeks after the show ends
    Also the two finalist won't be able to go home & train correctly & they will have to fight a week after the semi's

    This has DISASTER written all over it

    Looks to me like those two Fergusons are brothers. That should be interesting.

    Meltzer reported that FX is in charge of TUF & UFC in charge of the live events on TV
    That was the trade-off
    So the new look of TUF is totally FX & Dana gets to keep his UFC production for fights

    So, what if a winner is injured enough that he won't be able to fight in the finale?

    Fighter X won that fucking brawl, but they both took a beating. Sorry, you're too hurt to actually compete in the finale to be the ultimate fighter. Good jaerb.

    The filming length is twice as long now, so I assume guys will get more time to recover than before.

    It depends on how much time they're given between the end of the show and the live event. If it's a quick turnaround, the fighters might be able to fight due to recent injuries. It seems like the live event will be a week after the conclusion of the show, else why have any of it live? So if someone wins the semifinals with a broken finger, he can't compete in the final.

    The finale is a week after the semi's so they don't have the usual few months to go back home & train etc
    Also the coaches would be training during the season as well because the match they are in is the next PPV directly after

    Enough with the ribs shit, everyone fights injured. Silva cries after the fight and he's a hero, Tito cries after the fight and he's an asshole. Fuck that. Anderson got his ass handed to him by a better fighter for 4 and a half rounds.

    That whole "better fighter" thing kinda went out the window when he tapped out.


    If you are getting an amazing blowjob and you don't realize it's a guy until you grab at his crotch right before you cum, you still got blown by a dude.

    I wanted him to win too, but he didnt.

    Tito makes excuses of why he lost.
    AS made an excuse as to why it took him so long to win.

    Better fighter? Come on now.

    Anderson Silva in the UFC: 14-0. Overall: 31-4
    Chael Sonnen in the UFC: 4-4. Overall: 25-11-1
