| | Who's going to coach Ultimate Fighter 8?
Who's going to coach Season 8 of the Ultimate Fighter. I don't see anyone with enough marketability to do it. I hear alot of people throw out names like Nogueira, Fedor, Silva (either), but they aren't highly marketable in the US for a television show because of their limited English. It sucks that's the case but that's how the business works. The catch-22 with TUF 7 having Rampage and Forrest as the coaches is that while they should really push ratings because those are the two most entertaining guys outside the cage, where do you go from there? You can't improve on these 2 guys on a tv show. They are that funny. Just the fighter evals had me rolling.
So I racked my brain, and could only come up with one valid duo that would make good coaches, and also would be a marketable fight for either the finale or an end of the show PPV like recent coaches. Chuck Liddell and Rich Franklin. Franklin would have to move up but that shouldn't be much of a stretch. He fought Shamrock at 205. If anyone else has any ideas for coachs, share them please.
