Magalhaes has to be considered a favorite because the only people involved with the cast who can hang with him on the ground are Mir and the show's other head coach, UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

My LHW $$$$.

Nelson/Duarte LW i guess.

Can;t wait...it's totally like an offseason when there is no TUF. lol.

What's a staked weight class? 205 and 155 are definitely stacked.

They should definately do a TUF for HWs....only! With the same format they have now starting with 32! They could get a lot of quality guys like that.

Not like the guys on the show are going to be contenders anyway. I think that the great athletes at HW are in the NFL and if you are that big and that athletic your going for the money and thats not going to be first stop UFC.

Problem with doing HW is that after the season is over all the good prospects would drop to 205. happens every season, If they are doing a season with Middleweights, all the guys will be welterweights after the season is over.

Those are just the PFP good guys who usually go up a weight class or two to compete, if your weight class isn't available and your beastly enough why not move up then move back down once you get back to contendership? Mac Danzig was a lightweight before the show, Matt Serra was a lightweight before the show, Kenny Florian went up two weight classes, Diego Sanchez went up one, Rashad Evans dropped after he won, Bisping dropped but he was fighting up on a regular basis and dropped way after the show was over, most of the guys, the UFC knows they're a smaller weight class, its a talent seeking program as well as a huge push into stardom for unknown fighters and an awesome way to learn, most people would be happy to move up a weight for that chance.
