Hughes vs Serra should've taken place already.
From what Dana has said, Hughes is certainly not going to be making any fans because of this new season
I've never been a Hughes fan. I've always rooted against him.
I agree totally
nothing big about this fight, not worth the hype of an extra show, the fight should have been in August or September...not December
it's just slowing down movement in the welterweight division
There is to many contenders in the WW division to have a long wait in between championship fights. Champions should be expected to fight atleast 3 times a year.
Is that war machine?
Isnt Danzig a lightweight?
This fight makes me sad. I like both fighters and don't want either to loose. Yes I am openly admiting to being a Hughes fan
you and gtpjim might be the only 2 in the cage
btw, rule change for the upcoming season:
“The Ultimate Fighter 6″ Will Include Small Rules Change
Posted by UFC Junkie on August 23, 2007 at 7:00 am ET
The upcoming sixth season of Spike TV’s popular “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series debuts Sept. 19, and the show’s producers made a small change to the way fights were arranged.
In seasons’ past, if a coach’s fighter won his bout, that coach earned the right to pick the following episode’s fight. Essentially, the process allowed a coach to assure his top guys easy fights by picking off the opposition’s weakest talent.
The problem was no more apparent than last season, when Jens Pulver’s team beat B.J. Penn’s fighters in the show’s first four episodes.
”(Pulver) got to pick the first fight by wining (the coin toss),” Spike TV Senior Vice President of Sports and Specials Brian J. Diamond told UFCjunkie.com (www.ufcjunkie.com). “Team Pulver put their coach on a winning streak, and it made it very hard for B.J. to come back from being stuck in that rut.
“Now, what weâ€™ve done is this. With the coin toss, you pick the first fighter or you pick the first fight. But if you pick the first fight, it only means you get to pick that one matchup because after that, it alternates.“
In other words, a coach can’t go on a winning streak and play matchmaker for an extended period of time.
“We wanted to make the whole process a little more balanced going forward,” Diamond said.
“The Ultimate Fighter 6,” which debuts after UFC Fight Night 11 on Sept. 19, will feature current UFC welterweight champion Matt Serra and former champ Matt Hughes as coaches. The series concluded filming last month.

WTF dude, your mind must be in a different place today. Your typing is all kinds of fucked up
I like how each season they tweak the rules to prevent the problems they had in the previous season
You say that like its a bad thing.
That was my biggest complaint the past couple seasons. By the time the initial fights were drawing to a close, you knew the fights were going to be lousy.
Poor thing. I'm sitting in a training class for something completely unneeded in my job.
it'll be good to see Matt Arroyo on the show. Yay to having another tampa guy on the cast, and this one actually has some good jj, his stand up was pretty shitty last i saw though.
i said the same about Andy Wang
"alright! an asian dude on TUF!"
do the TUF episodes show up on the tracker? I don't have cable anymore
Yeah they do. Usually guys post them in here as well
I could really care less if the coaches have a big upcoming fight. The usually play such a small role that they could easily be replaced with any other vet fighter that could offer more training value or entertainment.
So far the best coaches have been tito and bj, both were a couple of entertaining bastards. Too bad we haven't been able to see the teaching side of bj or Hughes.
Oh and I'm giving another nod to Mac.
ive been talkin to blake bowman on aim for many many years.. old school sherdog grappling forum crew
yeah.. i train with him and he just exhausts you. his cardio is top notch, and hes gorilla strong
yeah they do
didn't you post a video with you rolling with him before?
