Subsequently, there has been a growing movement of mixed martial artists style yardtards who often emulate matches from The Ultimate Fighting Championship as the show started to become broadcasted on cable tv following the reality show The Ultimate Fighter. Many backyarders who follow this trend like to brawl in their backyards or garages after buying heavy bag gloves from sporting goods stores. These backyarders are frequently called "TUF noobs" for they do not formally train martial arts at academies and have only become followers of mixed martial arts following the reality tv show. The highest extent of an mma yardtard's training usually is high school wrestling and practicing techniques sought online.
