  1. Am I alone in thinking that’s rather odd that the UFC continues to match up TUF fighters with one another rather than with UFC fighters changing weight divisions or fighters outside TUF and the UFC? Could it be that they’re concerned as to how they’ll look against outside competition?

    1. JR, I think you hit the nail on the head! I think that the 125 division (as I believe you have mentioned before) is going to be dominated by the 135ers who dropped down. It is interesting that they have seemingly somewhat avoided matching up the TUF fighters with others and I think it is to protect the image of TUF gathering the top available signees.
