    *Ahem* That is to say, when I hear the words martial and art, I do not see MT, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling, BJJ, etc. Those aren't "arts," those are systems of fighting, as far as I am concerned. An art is something generally more aesthetically pleasing and generally far less useful in application. Of course, this is all my opinion. I don't think of Kickboxers as artists, for example, I think of them as fighters.

It seems like less of a case of "they just happen to have studied BJJ" and more "they got in early, stuck it out, had talent for fighting, and rated highly enough because of it to warrant a spot on TUF."

    Just a thought, though. But I don't really see any traditional martial artists on the show.
    Makes sense to me.
