Ultimate Fighter Alumni Rankings

tufIf I counted correctly there are currently 52 TUF veterans in the UFC, I have listed who I believe are the most successful guys since their stints on the Ultimate Fighter in order.  This shows that the reality show has been a success in producing talent, gaining fighters exposure and a fan base, and even producign future champions.  Six of these guys have fought for a UFC title, several have appeared in and lost number one contender fights, one has a title shot scheduled (D. Sanchez), and two are scheduld for number one contender bouts (Mike Swick and Gray Maynard).  On top of that many of these guys are consensus top 10-20 in the world int heir prospective divisions.  Let me know what you think.
