I hope your kidding. If this were to actually, by some miracle, it would be about 5 years from now. Add the fact that most young fighters don't come from TUF, and I would say highly inlikely.

I'd say the chances were very small, however, the last UFC card was packed full of TUF guys, UFC's plan is now coming together where they can use these production line, groomed fighters to fill out their cards.

In the next year, I think only one or two TUF fighters might even get a title shot and I don't think they'll win.

The more episodes of TUF they put on, the greater the chances of them getting a top fighter.

Corey Hill?? When did you even see him fihgt?
KOS is the only possible one.

Grove and Bisping have no chance right now b/c their styles are similiar to the champs.. Its just Silva and Liddell are a hell of a lot better at it.

And dont even joke about Josh Haynes man. He is like Ross Pointon he just keeps going man.

I think Corey Hill fought last week in TUF. He did not impress me at all in ability or attitude.

That was Cole Miller. Anothet tall guy who talka lot. He actually has mosyly fougth at 145 despite his height. I think he shopuld buff up and stay at 155. Hill is the 6 ft. 4 black guy

um..no. I dont hate TUF fighters, I think they are good and all, but no.

Lightweight has a lot of impressive fighters. Sherk, Florian, Penn, Pulver, Huerta for sure, Stevenson...so I think Hill is a little bit out of his league right now but Stevenson and Florian could represent

Welterweight. I mean come on. GSP owns that division then Serra, Hughes, Diego (if he fights like himself), The Heat, lots of good guys, Kos has a chance but would get killed by the big three in Serra, GSP, and Hughes right now.

Middleweight. I like Grove and he has a chance actually I think. Kampmann might be someone he should take on, McDonald, Franklin, he needs to go top tier before getting his shot, but he has a chance I think. Silva is sick though.

Lightheavyweight: Bisping matches up horribly against Chuck. The Count "likes to bang", but unfortunately for him Chuck "bangs" a whole lot better. Evans has an outside chance if your looking for a TUFie, just cause he could LnP a decision with his sick takedowns...but thats very outside.

Heavyweight...No, just no. Randy, Cro Cop, Nog, Arlovski, Werdum, Vera, Sylvia, Herring...absolutely no chance in hell...literally no chance in hell

i think bisping has the best chance out of those listed....
he's got good power and has been working on his ground game a lot i think he'll be champ at LHW within a couple of years

an ENGLISH champ in the UFC that would be great
