Anybody remember when MTV did some celebrity boxing something or other back in the mid-nineties? That Skater guy Simon Woodstock, who dressed like a clown and used **** like ironing boards as with trucks and wheels instead of skateboards, ended up winning. In the process, he beat the **** out of Mr. Hardcore rapper StickyFingaz from Onyx. Yeah, that was great.
Ralph Macchio vs Lou Diamond Phillips
Joe Don Baker
Ronnie James Dio
The Beastie Boys
David Lee Roth
The Polar Bear From "Lost"
For the season finale, they can have a superfight between Big John McCarthy and Herb Dean.
Naw, man, "Celebrity" Ultimate Fighter is bullcrap. It's East Coast vs. West Coast Hip-Hop Ultimate Fighter!
Representing the West coast:
And representing the East Coast:
All eight living members of the Wu-Tang Clan!\
Raekwon the Chef
That's something I'd really like to see.
Sniffle... I love Carl Sagan, what are you getting at? (Also he's dead)

Instead of an "Ultimate Fighter" style thing, it should be like a "So You Think You Can Dance" type show. It will be called "So You Want To Be A Fucking Fighter" of course.
Each celebrity participant will be paired up with a professional fighter to train with and then they have to fight each week on the show. The guest judges can be Dana White, Calvin Ayre, and Gary Shaw. They don't actually judge the fight if it goes to decision; they mainly provide advice on how they did similar to "American Idol", the home audience does by casting in their votes. Since we know how home voting tends to turn it, it would behoove them to finish the fight via KO, TKO, Submission. The guest refs for the fights will be Herb Dean, Big John, and Mario Yamasaki.
Also, it would be a round robin approach instead of single elimination. This way, we don't have to worry about getting deprived of matchups we'd like to see (I so wanted to see Nate Diaz vs Joe Lauzon on the TUF 6).
As for who would be the contestants, everyone else has already posted great ideas, I'll let you all go for broke on that.
