That can only be good news. It's a good hint that this season is filled with great fights and guys that actually want to go somewhere in this sport.

Quite the change from last season, where barely anyone was given another shot.

I think it's ridiculous that TUF 16 guys got arbitrarily screwed out of getting a real UFC fight just due to Dana's mood swings. Eddy Ellis pretty much beat Colton in the first round of the show and got screwed. Herron-Webb also got screwed by the judges. Joey Rivera had a tough decision loss as well. They all should be getting a fight.

Meanwhile all the TUF Brazil, TUF Smashes and TUF 17 guys are getting the red carpet treatment just due to marketing or Dana getting turned on by this new season.

no one got screwed, they didnt get brought into the UFC the UFC has no obligation to allow anyone to fight for them.

now i agree Eddy Ellis for one should be on the UFC roster and in the future may be.
