Let me be the first to give ZUFFA a superfluous amount of props for ditching the fight-based format and focusing on the drunk, rowdy, obnoxious, and overall entertaining aspects of fighters residing within The Ultimate Fighter household. Judging by the rowdiness of this newly released TUF: Carwin vs. Nelson clip, the MMA world can look forward to a seemingly infinite amount of Junie Brownings and War Machines. I know I’ve repeated myself ever since the beginning of The Ultimate Fighter Season 11, but I will make a concerted effort to watch every episode of this season of TUF. In fact, we may do something interesting this year every week during TUF — perhaps an episodic breakdown of the show by Wallid Ismail or Dan Quinn — regardless of if they actually watched the show.
Without further ado, check out the trailer that the entire MMA community has been talking about. It features your soon-to-be favorite TUF cast members acting ridiculous in front of a camera. Good job ZUFFA, you’ve created must-see TV once again.
