** The decision in the Zapata/Stephens fight in TUF 19 may be one of the most bizarre not only in TUF history, but UFC history. Most had Zapata winning via his wrestling domination, while some did give Stephens the nod due to doing more damage. Most importantly, two of the judges did; however, with a point deduction in the third sudden victory round on Stephens for an illegal elbow, it ended in a majority draw, and then the judges picked Stephen as the winner based on the fight overall. It was the first time anything like that had happened.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The exciting barn burner Light Heavyweight finale fight of Season 1 between Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar. A fight so pivotal in the history of US MMA, Dana White constantly lists it as THE reason The Ultimate Fighter got renewed after the first season and led to the rise of the sport's popularity in the US. Dana has even said despite Bonnar's increasingly poor record of late that he'll never fire him due to the fight.

** TUF Brasil also had a share of fighters who were desliked. Pepey (arrogant) and Mutante (always protected by Victor Belfort) from season 1 and Viscardi(disrespectful towards Minotauro) and Juliano Ninja (arrogant) from season 2 are good examples.
* StopHavingFunGuys: Matt Hughes, who detests flashy moves and such. To a point where he cut a promo on Rashad Evans for showboating during a fight in Season 2.
* TearJerker: After losing her fight,[[Adorkable Roxanne Modaferri]] is her usual, upbeat, self. Until she is alone, and she completely breaks down.

* JumpingTheShark: Subjective, but many feel that the last good season was 5. After that, they started recycling coaches and former contestants started returning as coaches, the quality of the fighters went way down, and the show got really repetitive to some. The nadir that got a lot of people thinking this was Season 10, where word of Rampage's departure for the "A-Team" movie leaked (thus not fighting his rival coach Rashad Evans on the [=TUF10=] finale) and, as a heavyweight season of would-be MMA fighters who generally needed a lot of polish, there were a lot of fights where both fighters gassed before the end of the first round. However, seasons 11 and 12 have been entertaining enough to get viewers back into it.

** Forrest and Stephan are now both retired, were inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, and essentially have jobs with the UFC for life. One could argue Forrest could have entered on his other merits, but essentially, it's all because of THIS FIGHT.
