The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Debuts Tomorrow Night!

September 16, 2008

Are you as excited as I am for tomorrow night gang?

It’s the premiere of the 8th season of The Ultimate Fighter, tagged as Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir. Yes, it’s been 8 seasons since Forrest Griffin’s and Stephan Bonnar’s historic fight that (re-)started it all. Not much has really changed as far as editing and format, but there’s just something about this show that has me glued.

I can honestly say that I’d probably watch the 600th season of this damn show. As long as they keep showing it, I’ll keep a’ watching. Are you in the same boat as me or do you think the show is getting old already? If so, what do you think they need to do to spice it up? I think Mir will make things interesting for the kids, but Nogueira, I’m not too sure.

Hawaii’s got another guy to root for this season: 24 year old Shane Nelson from BJ Penn’s MMA team in Hilo. Don’t really know much about him, but here’s a video I dug up on Youtube. Aside from the booger that was bothering him (in BOTH nostrils no less!) *grin* , he looks like a scrapper. Good luck this season Shane! We’ll be rooting for ya!

* The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir: Wednesday, September 17, 2008 @ 7PM on Spike TV (Oceanic Digital Channel 0559). Don’t forget to also catch a new UFC Fight Night (Nate Diaz vs. Josh Neer) at 5PM preceding TUF.
