The Ultimate Fighter Nations rating haven't exactly been flagging, but they've been hard to beg between mediocre hihgs and basement lows.

I've liked the season so far. I can see why some fans wouldn't, though.

Exactly what I'm thinking. TUF 19 with Edgar and Penn also TUF 20 with the strawweights both should do very well.
I actually think TUF 20 is gonna exceed expectations.

I honestly don't think people realize the talent in Canada and Australia...I think they feel like TUF is reaching. Plus the coaches aren't big stars, the accents, etc...

That's a shame, the fights have been pretty good so far.

I think it's been pretty good but I may be biased being an Aussie though.

Its time they had heavyweights on, everyone loves a good heavyweight battle. It is disappointing this is not shown in the UK though.
But on a lighter side, those fighters in the line up look familiar. 2nd one is looks like a result of a love child between Vitor Belfort and Chris Weidman, the 4th one in Alessio Sakara and Johnny Hendricks and 6th one Matt hamill and Brian Stann's love child

Yeah, I've collectively watched enough episodes to make up Three TUF seasons in the past probably 12 TUF seasons. More then I have a demand for plus too much reality TV none sense. I'd prefer a legitimate sports contests among entry level fighters that was more about the fights only and there was no "TUF House" or "UFC Gym" and "Coaches Challenges" or any of that, just real preparation for real fights with an end that isn't supposed to fit into a produced narrative.
