You know things are going bad when even your fan sites are shitting on your product. UFC Mania’s recap of the first half of TUF5’s season goes something like this: the show is a joke and the contestants are bottom of the barrel fighters. Key quote:
Jeff Foxworthy once said: “If you mix pond scum with raw sewage you ain’t gettin’ Evian”. So too does it hold true that if you put a group of inexperienced drama queens in a steel cage you ain’t gettin’ Couture/Liddell.
Personally, I’m enjoying season 5 more than season 4, but that’s not saying much. I’d rather drown a kitten than sit through season 4 again. But I do agree with what these guys are saying: there’s gotta be some middle ground where talented fighters, exciting matches, and interesting personality come together to create a show that isn’t a steaming pile of dogshit.
