    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    So I just discovered TUF...

    I don't hugely enjoy watching sports, I'm only kinda interested in watching MMA, but it's pretty entertaining. Especially seeing Forest Griffin.

    Anyways, I was going to ask, are there any other MA oriented shows worth a watch?



    Please don't suggest human weapon.

    Well, as far as TUF goes, my favourite season was #5.
    Team B.J. Penn vs Jens Pulver.
    2 serious legends in the sport with a fantastic conclusion and some of the most hilarious antics in the house.

    Next favourite after season #5 is season #1.

    I love the girly drama> he ate my food!- he stole my sweater- lol.

    But I would greatly recommend "The Contender; Muay Thai asia" i think you can find it on youtube without too much searching- great challenges and fights- less random drama and reality-show time wasting than TUF and alot more fight based challenges and the workouts and progressions as the season goes on are really cool to watch.

    Wanderlei Silva had a TUF-style web series that was pretty okay - if you like the format of man-drama plus meaty guys punching the **** out of each other, I suggest Game of Thrones, though. :)

    To be honest it's kinda camp but I'm more or less just watching whatever I can find these.

    In terms of Game of Thrones:
    I hear that. I've read them all. Normally I hate TV adaptations of books because the people never match what I imagined. But Tyrion and Tywin were exactly who I imagined. Although I imagined Ned as Duke Leto Atreides when I read it, so SeanBeanAndGone was surprising.

    The Team vs Team format does not work. The current TUF Brazil season is a great example of that.

    Another vote here for The Contender Asia, if you want to see a show that's actually about the fighters, their training, and how hard it can be to be a pro, especially at the top level. TUF is a soap opera for guys with a little fighting thrown in at the end, and last I watched, it doesn't look like they're even trying to pretend anymore. It's great if you're into man-drama trainwrecks, but don't expect a lot in terms of quality. The show hasn't produced anyone relevant in ages.

    Rallersving, excellent little Swedish show. Couple of martial artists travel the world trying out every style they can find and sparring with them. Much more honest than the American shows I've seen, they don't pretend every art is equal and call out bullshit when they see it. Pretty sure Human Weapon and Fight Quest ripped off their idea. It came out in 2005.

    If you can download the series with subtitles, I recommend that.
