It took me about 30 mins of bein pissed off that the ufc would make the Womens Strawweight division start on TUF 20, cause lets face it, bein on that show is the shits, unless your broke and you need food and shelter.
But then i started coming around, because what we are about to see is better than TUF 4 with Matt Serra and Travis Lutter, which gave some old timers and chance at the belt(which was awesome)(think Rocky). No no this is better because the current Womens Strawweight Champion is in the tournament bracket, risking the chance to be upset and unseated.
This is crazy talk to most people, managers, and media, but this also adds a new element to this season of TUF, because now we get to see alot more motivation, as you are training with or directly against the Champ. This will directly place the rankings from here on in this division. Until InvictaFC refreshes its now almost empty division.
While I feel sorry for Shannon Knapp and InvictaFC, she has known this has been on Dana's mind for awhile, and knowing that the biggest organization is gonna steal a whole division has gotta sting. Atleast with Invicta still standing and the womans division small it keeps the oppornitunity for the women losers to go back and string together some wins and make a comeback.
But i keep hope they might entertain some UFC Champ vs InvictaFC Champ fights in the future. So people keep interested in seeing what InvictaFC is bringing to the table.
Don't hate TUF 20, embrace it! Because you are witnessing the tournament birth of this whole division. Champ and all.
