The show's success has other promotions thinking of their own version of reality television, including the UFC's sister promotion World Extreme Cagefighting.
"From the beginning it (a reality show) was something always in our plans," said WEC vice president
"We've got a lot of ideas," he added. "We want to find ways similar to the UFC to showcase our fighters on a more consistent basis."
While still in the planning stages, expect to see a WEC reality show on Versus in 2009. "I don't know if we'll do exactly what the UFC did with The Ultimate Fighter, but we do have plans for a reality show of some nature," said Dropick. "Possibly soon and launching in 2009."
