Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Like It or Not, ‘TUF 11′ Kicks Off on March 31st

("Tito, you ever notice how our chins start at the same height, and yet the top of your head extends three inches above mine? It’s kind of unsettling, actually.")

As much as we could all use a long break to recover from the atrocities of TUF 10, this goddamned show will be back before you know it. Spike TV has announced that the eleventh season of The Ultimate Fighter will premiere on March 31st. As you’ve already heard, the coaches will be Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz. Both UFC legends have previously held coaching gigs on TUF (Liddell on the first season, Ortiz on the third), both previously enjoyed long light-heavyweight title runs, and both have earned one victory in their last five attempts. Liddell can barely speak anymore, and every time Ortiz opens his mouth it’s like acid in our ears. Keep your expectations low, that’s all we’re saying.

The show’s cast will be made up of 16 middleweights; UFC vets Nick Thompson and Jason Lambert tried out for the show, though their spots in the cast haven’t been confirmed. It’ll be interesting to see how well the combination of Chuck and Tito draws compared to Kimbo Slice, who helped put 5.2 million asses in sofas on Saturday night. They’ll probably need at least one well-known personality in the cast if they want to avoid a massive ratings dropoff. Can Chad Ochocinco cut to 185?

Ochocinco cut to 185?? He would have to eat an extra big mac a day to GET to 185....thatd be a hell of a show. The thought of that is a hundred times more interesting than seein these two go at it again...

Dana White was so impressed with Chuck Liddell on Dancing With the Stars that he's giving him another shot. Liddel's plan worked!

Ill probably watch it. TV is fucking shit nowadays anyway. I hope Chuck smashes Tito though. That would be awesome.

BTW: Whats up with all the nitwits on here basically admitting that MMA fans are being fed useless cynical slop here, and then ending with "but I'm gonna watch it anyway".

YOU are the reason that we're getting this dogshit. There is way too much MMA available from way too many outlets to mindlessly support this degradation.

Everytime you "watch it anyway" we get something even worse the next time. This whole murican culture is going down the toilet because of assholes who are guaranteed to "watch it anyway".

If you dont like it then dont watch it or we'll keep getting more of the same and worse.

In fact double not.

This is basically tito/shamrock 5 IMO.

Maybe the new twist for TUF could be that it's held in Boston. Since it's such a shitty show now, and everything from Boston and Boston itself is a piece of shit.

I hear Tiger Woods' image is in need of a boost. I'd bet he's a natural middleweight, too.

Spike and the UFC really missed out on the chance to have TUF 11 feature Pedro Martinez and Don Zimmer as coaches.
MyFightWiffaCheeto- December 8, 2009 at 1:19 pm
Fuck Boston.
NOTSOB- December 8, 2009 at 1:17 pm
needs to stop hating on boston thats all i want for christmas.

dana white is out of ideas.

@ petro:

I agree. They should shelve the TUF series. I would rather watch a reality show that follows 3 or 4 up-and-coming UFC newbies that shows training and behind-the-scenes shenanigans.

@ mthomas:

"We will probably all end up watching it anyway and Dana White knows it...."

I don't think so. I'm done with TUF and all of the false hype (Kimbo is gonna fight again THIS WEEK...really!) BS from the UFC.

The more I think about it, Tito and Chuck sounds like some weak sauce to me.
RPS13- December 8, 2009 at 1:11 pm
this fucking show needs to go away
virpz- December 8, 2009 at 1:10 pm
Oh, the old good times with Chuck Big Belly Lidell vs Tito Big Head Ortiz as main event. Now what ? In no time there will be a main event with Kimbo Big Failure Slice vs come can and they want you to be happy with that.
mthomas- December 8, 2009 at 1:05 pm
You know what the worst part is though? We will probably all end up watching it anyway and Dana White knows it....
petro- December 8, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Good God, just imagine a whole season of Chuck's incoherent mumbles and Tito's douchebaggery - its gonna get real old real fast. And speaking of things in the decline, the whole TUF series needs to go. Over-hyped mediocre fights, same 2002 reality show formula, I mean c'mon - time for something new, no?
mthomas- December 8, 2009 at 1:04 pm
Oh man! Both the caption and "this goddamned show will be back before you know it" just made me laugh way too hard!

I'll hazard a guess that CP isn't quite as fired up about season 11 as Dana White would like to believe.
Merlin- December 8, 2009 at 12:56 pm

But either way the diarrhea runs & the syphilis comes.
skeletor- December 8, 2009 at 12:50 pm
DW better stack this season with fighters not personalities. Kimbo got people to watch but the piss poor fights got everyone (I know at least) to only tune in at the end for the fights. At the end of the day reality television is just that and fight fans want to see fights.

They seem to be having these shows so they can bulk up the weaker divisions in the UFC. We didn't get much in terms of HW's, and the last time he tried this shit with MW's we got stuck with Kendal Grove and Ed Fucking Herman. I don't think a couple of UFC washouts are going to do the trick, they already had a show like that.
Merlin- December 8, 2009 at 12:47 pm
Why not ?!?!

But for the ... FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT WAS HOLY, Chuck don't let Cheeto win or the entire fighting world & the rest of the universe will never hear the end of it!

Double First.

How is 2010 is supposed to be a better year for the UFC with these types of decisions?

I hope the fighters rally against the coaches and throwdown.
