"TUF" MATCHES FOR EXPERIENCED FIGHTERS
I want to thank MMAjunkie.com for getting Luke Zachrich and C.B. Dollaway to provide an inside look at "The Ultimate Fighter." Luke brought out an interesting piece of information in his first entry: "Dana lined us up and randomly paired us with our opponents." Are you kidding me? Granted records can be padded on local circuits, but come on; have some rhyme or reason to it. I feel bad for Mike Marrello (7-1) and Patrick Shultz (5-1), as these two MMA veterans fought two frontrunners in Gerald Harris and Zachrich. This, while inexperienced Dan Cramer (0-0) takes on Jeremiah Riggs (1-0), who has all heart and no technique. Likewise, Dan Simmler (1-0), with no stand-up or takedown defense, fights and gets KO'd by inexperienced Matt Riddle (1-0). If you want the top 16 fighters, then find a way to seed them because a couple may have slipped away.
