Gary Shaw’s Reaction

This season of The Ultimate Fighter looks to be the most exciting in quite a while.  An all heavyweight season, the Rampage/Evans rivalry, and now Kimbo Slice, arguably one of the most recognizable personalities in MMA joining the cast.  This season already corresponds with the UFC beginning to make an aggressive push to build up their heavyweight talent pool (see Russow signing yesterday).  There will be several former NFLers in this cast as well.  This season could be the decision maker in terms of continuing TUF or moving to another format as well.  There’s going to be a lot of eyes watching this season…

Also, what is this announcement Dana refers to in his video that is going to change MMA and the UFC forever?  Is this the television deal that many have speculated on for years?
