    Allow me a moment to complain about Fight Pass.

    Taken directly from UFC.tv’s FAQ: “What do I get for my monthly subscription? …• International editions of The Ultimate Fighter including TUF China and TUF Brazil: Team Wanderlei vs Team Sonnen”

    TUF China is not on there and the show has been over. Foreign editions of TUF are a big reason why I am a subscriber but if they aren’t going to put them on there until after the finales then its pointless. I don’t see how there can be broadcast restrictions on it since Fight Pass isn’t available in Asia, the only place where the show was on television. The new TUF Nations has already started airing episodes online and its still running.

    It was unfortunate that Yang Jian Ping could not fight. He is one of my favorite fighters. Hope the fight will be rescheduled soon.
