Two episodes in and I am already losing interest fast
Same here. I love TUF and have watched every episode numerous times but this season just isn't doing anything for me. I was excited to see if Jury could prove himself but he ends up leaving the show the first episode with an injury.
Also, the coaching seems to be lacking big time. Brock belittles his fighters by calling them chicken **** over and over again and when he's cornering his fighters he offers very little positive advice and sounds like a 12 year old while he's screaming. JDS is too conservative and doesn't get after his fighters enough in my opinion.
And not using the elimination matches at the beginning of the show is just a bad idea and I have no idea why they did that. I guarantee at least a few of these guys wouldn't have made the show if that were the case. And the first two fights were awful. First we saw a lesson in what lay and prey truly is then I could have sworn I was watching Nick Lentz vs. Andre Winner in the 2nd match.
If the show continues to disappoint like it has been I'm probably just going to wait until the TUF finale to watch...
