Regarding TUF 9, How Real is Reality TV?   [View Full Version]

What are we supposed to see when we watch TUF9?

Check out an interesting write up on this season of the Ultimate Fighter, and the potential bias the camera's are showing us.

reality TV shows have aways been know to edit out of context or edit to make someone look like they are better or worse then they actually are. I thought this was common knowledge

Well of course, but the question remains as to why they would try to make Team US look bad?

well why not make them look bad their giving the video crew material and there may be using it to exaggerate the conflict and at the same time decided lets make team UK look better to create a bit of contrast

I was wondering about this after the last episode with Cameron Dollar. I have a good eye for movement, and that dude looks absolutely terrible training, while Stapleton looked great in training, but the fight was the exact opposite. While some guys train well and fight well, almost no one trains poorly and fights well. They must have taken clips from Dollar on his first day or two, or his worst training footage from the camp.

That's a great point, I wondered the same thing. I didn't expect much from Cam at all, especially showing how poor his technique looked in what we were shown.

But the kid came out like an absolute house of fire, much different than what I expected.

It also helps that the UK guys can't wrestle a lick. If Stapleton was there best wrestler, they are going to have problems later in the show and in the UFC.

from "your posture is bad. how can you miss the target?"

to

SWEEP/THROW into FULL MOUNT in under 10 seconds to RNC for the win? LOL

None of those freakin brits that I have seen are UFC material. oh well. Bisping gets on my nerves and I can't stand listening to him talk, I can't wait until Henderson beats the british crap out of him and sends him packing. And if Matt the hammer could drop weight and beat Bispings ass too that would be freakin great. IMO
