This series sounds like the best ever! With a real rivarly between the coaches, a new house and a cast of 16 fighters all fighting to be crowned the Ulimate Fighter including;
a lightweight at 6'3" tall,
Nick Diaz's brother Nate,
Karo Parisiyans cousin &
Joe Louzan, the unknown fighter who shocked the MMA world by k-o'ing Jens Pulver on his comeback fight in the UFC.

CANT WAIT!

I can't freaking wait!!! Naturally I'm rooting for Karo's cousin at the beginning, since I'm a judoka myself. I hope Diaz gets his face smashed! And a 6'3'' lightweight...crazy shit. We have a 6'5'' guy in our camp who's at about 165

Really looking forward to this season, It won't take much to be better than TUF 4.

Damn, and I thought I was a monster lightweight at 6'0.

This season looks like it will be good. Each season gets better with the fighters being more serious and no more Right-Guard close ups of armpits.


I also hope they keep up the trend of all fighters being the same weight class. I really like the idea of the coaches squaring off in the finale.
