TUF Seasons 1-11 Fighter Records


Ok so after the article on The Ultimate Fighter talent of a couple of days ago I sat down and listed everyone from TUF and got their records (from Sherdog, record sources do vary). I did a bit of research on some of them and crunched a few basic numbers but I tried to keep it simple. It's a start if anyone wants to dig deeper or correct mistakes. I also made a few conclusions at the end but those are just my personal conclusions not anything definite.

Conclusions

The first season was by far the best in terms of lasting quality fighters and future contenders by quite a margin. With the exception of Rashad Evans and Joe Stevenson getting title shots the second season didn't really produce much better than any other season did. Season 6 was horrible in terms of lasting talent, Season 8 was rather good in that regard.

The average time from the end of the season till a fighter got his title shot was close to 3 years for the first two seasons (didn't average in season 4's title shots). By that average it would be time for 5 and 6 to produce a contender (Manny Gamburyan in WEC, Gray Maynard?) In regards to creating future contenders season 6 was also lacking(George Sotiropoulos in the future?). Season 3 also hasn't done well in that regard either (Bisping has been close to being a contender but not that close). Winning the show isn't really a big indicatior of who is going to come out of the show as future top talent.

All in all I don't see so much of a falling off in talent as I do that the high talent level was only really there for season 1. Rashad Evans seems to make season 2 look better than it actually was but beyond him it wasn't anything special from any other season. Even season 4 with all veterans didn't produce much. Season 6 was the low point of the series. Season ten was poor in overall numbers but produced some really good potential talent.
