MF: This should be an exciting year for the Ultimate Fighter. This is the first year where there isn’t a “ringer” in the group of house mates. The playing field seems to be pretty even, which should lead to some exciting fights. If i had to pick an early favorite, my guess would be either Chris Camozzi or Kyle Noke, who have both already fought and beat tough competition in their careers. That said, i’ve also heard a lot of good things about Costa Phillipou, Kris McCrary, and Charles Blanchard. Even though most MMA fans aren’t real excited to see Liddell/Ortiz III, these are two proven coaches on this show, who actually care about coaching young fighters.
