This guy is now spreading jewels of knowledge and everyone of you is "Wooow he is a great guy and an awesome coach". Maybe he is good to motivate people.
But he is a guy that taps and few seconds later he says that he never tapped, he is somebody who used Peds, he is somebody that is a huge corrupt, not to talk that the only way he can get attention is by having a Troll persona.
He can talk anything he wants. He already showed a long time ago who he is.
And if he is a good coach then good, but he is not doing any favour by being a good coach. He is getting paid a lot for being in TUF so he is obligated to be a good coach.
Not because Rampage or Lesnar were terrible coaches it now means that being a bad coach is the "normal thing". And being a good coach is something "Wooow amazing!!".
He got the most undeserved title shot in MMA history. It is his obligation to be at least a good coach.
Not that what he said is something new. He just stated an obvious thing.
"And if we can plant seeds and let him know, ‘Move your feet, keep your hands up, stay off the bottom.' That is the road to victory, or self-doubt and negative talk, and that is the road to failure."....Pfff You don't say?
Don't want to get into everything else you said about him, but one thing is undeniable, he has tapped and then denied tapping in more than one fight, 2 come to mind for sure, but there might be a third. That in my book is just plain terrible. I remember Ken Shamrock did that the first time he fought Royce Gracie, but at least he apologized a minute later. If I'm not mistaken Sonnen was still making a thing of it at the press conference after the first Silva fight.
