    TUF 28 to showcase women's 145 and men's HW


    Seeing on twitter the new (and likely last) TUF will feature women's FW (145) and men's HW divisions.....both sorely in need of an influx of new blood and talent

    Have you seen the names involved...….the HW guys are awful. Mostly jobbers from across the world. The women are mostly unknown to me, with average records at best......but they need to start somewhere.

    I mean, isn't that the point? The unknown people getting an opportunity. HW and LHW will ALWAYS be awful 'cause those divisions are just pure shit now.

    Yes that was the idea of TUF all along wasn't it? Even fringe HW's that are new blood are better than the fringe ones we've been seeing recycled

    Nope, TUF initially was a marketing tool for guys who were already UFC ready fighters. Granted it has become more of a place for unknown guys to make a mark, but the HW guys involved here are known, just not very good. The women are a different ball game completely, they make more sense, but likely will be of a low standard because if they were good, with how shallow 145 is, we'd know them. Pannie Kianzad is one of the girls on the cast, Daley interviewed her a few times about 3 or 4 years ago when she was a rising prospect in Cage Warriors, but since then she went to Invicta, and I'm not sure she's won a fight there.
