    Yeah, I think they pick coaches based on personalities. I mean look at Ken and Tito. Sure, considering Ken ran the Lions Den and all that, I guess you can assume that he'd be an awesome coach, which he most likely was in there but was just awful on the TUF show, not focused at all on coaching.

    Tito on the other hand, I don't see what would make someone assume that he'd be a great coach aside from a few defining things about him, but he did very well on the show.

    The main driving point for bringing the both of them into the show was their current feud with each other. What they produced from their own hatred for each other was classic material. It's all about the personalities imo.

    As for Rampage saying he hates training, I'm willing to bet most fighters absolutely hate training. That is the hardest part of a job as a fighter by far. It is just so grueling to train your ass off for hours at a time and eat right almost everyday in preparation for the fights. I definitely don't blame Rampage for that. I don't see how that would make him a good or a bad coach, regardless.

    i havnt missed a ufc/pride/any decent card since i started watching mma. i guess im just a freak.


    P.S. I never stated my TUF opinion. I'm still watching every week, but not as excited as before. I always did like the challenges and was sorry to see them go. The drama bores me most of the time, but I do like getting to know the fighters better as people.

    Also, as Twanky said, you never know when you are going to see the next big thing. I enjoy the local shows, so I don't expect every fight to be UFC PPV caliber.

    mmhmm
    Lol I still can't get past the guy who said "I guess if you don't watch this season you're not a real mma fan"...hahahaha. Damn, owning every PRIDE and UFC on DVD is worthless, because I don't watch a show full of cans that lose on the highlights of Inside MMA.

    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not all out to get you.

    I can't answer that because they're watching me.
