You might not expect Dana White to make comparisons to “American Idol,” but the UFC president doesn’t hesitate to point out the similarities between his organization’s reality show, “The Ultimate Fighter,” and the highest-rated show on television.

“This (TUF) and ‘American Idol’ are probably the two most significant reality shows on television,” White said. “The reason is they have all these reality shows now where you watch a bunch of (expletive) idiots on TV making jackasses out of themselves and when the show is over, you never see them again.

A good show would be watching the try outs for TUF, and getting to see some of the tapes sent in. Dana should think about that
