    he must have already been aware and preoccupied with his movie job because he ,so far anyway, is a far worse coach than he was last time.

    The more this season goes on the more rashad comes across as a good coach and mentor to younger fighters. sure he talks alot of smack and instigates his fair share but damn he is showing that he actually cares for the fighters and not only his team but all of them. To walk out on one fighter during a fight not show up for prep of another then not help him up when he just lost is pretty shitty. Bisping did something similar when he didn't even show up for one of his guys fights. I guess birds of a feather addage works here for those two. i feel rampage is gonna go down as the worst coach on TUF so far but that might be the most obvious statement i could make.

    On the other hand, I have developed a little bit of a man crush on Rashad for the way he treated Dimico after the loss. Obviously, opposite corner guys will often go give a few words of encouragement to the loser after a fight, but he seemed genuinely concerned and upset.

    I kinda feel bad overall that Rampage's colorful character would be a bigger factor for a whole season than the quality of fighters they hope to get out of it.

    It is quite apparent that Rampage is a lousy coach. Beyond that, It speaks volumes when you don't support your fighter before and after the fight. I like Rampage as A fighter but as a coach...horrible. This does also reflect on a mans character. A mans character is defined by his troubles and tribulations: IN this case Rampage's character shows, and it is weak.

    My opinion of Rampage has done nothing but go down hill for probably the last 3 years. He's comical, a great athlete, but garbage in terms of being a person.

    He is funny, which makes you want to like him, but he does and says so many stupid things that you can't help but be left with a bad taste in your mouth.


    I used to really like him back in the day, but as I've come to learn more about who he is behind the jokes, I've started to like him less and less.

    ^^What he said. I always found him amusing, however, he never game the impression that he gives a shit about anyone but himself. Like he never had trainers and coaches for moral support. What if his cornermen left after the brutal beating wandy put on him because he made them look bad. That's just wrong. The guys that get on the show work their asses off to make it. Having to do it without any moral support is dickish to say the least on Page's part.

    Rampage is funny and entertaining to watch, but he is an horrible coach.

    Must be nice for everyone who's on Team Rashad.

    More TUF 10 Fighters speak on Rampage being sh*&%y coach

    Darrill “Titties” Schoonover:

    I didn’t know that Demico’s coaches were out eating, while Demico was sitting down cold and wondering where his coaches were at. Not having anybody to wrap his hands. I don’t understand why one of his teammates did not step up and help him warm up and wrap his hands. It was very immature of the coaches to do that. You do not leave a fighter alone before his fight… I felt as if Rampage was more upset at the fact that he had another loss under his belt, but in reality, he should be more upset at himself for leaving his fighter alone. Demico did well considering his lack of experience. If anything, Demico should be upset at Rampage for being late. People don’t understand how something like that can affect a fighter’s mentally.
    Abe Wagner:

    It’s hard to believe Rampage acted that way after the fight and didn’t want to give D a stool or even go in to the cage afterward. Well, I mean I guess I can, he left before my fight was even over. In fact now that I think about it, he wouldn’t even speak to me for a day or two after. I think Rashad did a very accurate job of describing the feelings after a loss and he was dead on. You do feel really low and I do think that a good coach will be there for you to help you through it.

    I consider Rampage among my friends and in general I think he’s a decent guy. But at this point, it was feeling to me like his heart really wasn’t into being a coach; almost like he was just waiting out the clock. Maybe that wasn’t the case, but it was definitely my perception.
    Zak Jensen:

    Let’s start of with the obvious, the coaches rallying around Kimbo after he lost. This is the first time any of Team Rampage’s coaches and even Quinton “Rampage” Jackson showed any concern for someone who lost. Rampage has Kimbo Slice’s [expletive] in his mouth and so does Tiki Ghosn. When Rampage told Tiki they would still focus on Kimbo just in case someone got hurt, it was clear to me that it was all about Kimbo and no one else on our team.

    The coaches decided to go to lunch after we had our practice. Okay, it was two hours before the fight. I mean, go grab a sub or some fast food but don’t go to a sitdown restaurant. It showed that they weren’t thinking about Demico or his fight…It just showed where Rampage’s head was.

    Then after the fight, they just left Demico in the cage by himself…It was ridiculous and showed Rampage has basically given up on his team. The coaches went to have a meeting and came back to the locker room.

    That’s when Rampage told Demico he gave up in the cage. You never say that to a fighter when his dream at being The Ultimate Fighter was just taken away. What kind of coaching style is that? Also the last thing Rampage said was that he had to go and read a part of the book he was carrying around for his acting class. I have an idea, why don’t you start acting like a [expletive] coach
    Rampage’s heart is somewhere — maybe in acting — but at least from what we’ve seen so far it wasn’t in coaching season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter.
