    Depending on who wins and loses in the next few shows and what not,Id enjoy Vera/Mir or Wandy/Rampage.

    Providing both win their next fight I could also see them setting up Chuck/Rampage. Liddells said many times he wants to fight him again. I could also see something being done with Huerta(since hes currently one of their golden boys)/BJ or Fitch/GSP or Serra.

    WAR Stamos!
    Who the fuck is Shogun???

    I don't see Rampage coaching back to back seasons though. They start filming before he fights Forrest so you know he would be training for Forrest. Also, it ties up the Championship for another 6-10 month stretch and I don't see that happening again so soon. I also don't see Wanderlei coaching because of how bad his English is. It's sad to say because I think he'd make a good coach but when it comes to the TV show aspect of the UFC, they want someone well spoken, with high marketability much like Pro Wrestling. Viewers won't tune in to see subtitles and not understand what's going on. While the hardcore fans, like myself would love it, that show is geared toward bringing in casual viewers to sell advertising dollars.

    That will give fitch enough time to get in GSP's head and beat him before the fight ever starts.

    If serra wins this weekend though I seriously wonder what kind of menatl breakdown GSP is going to have. He isn't right in the head...

    I hope that rumor is wrong. Fitch has no personality and GSP, don't really have an opinion of him either way. Plus all that would do is tie up the Welterweight title for another long layoff. It's only been defended once in over a year and that was an interim belt. The Ultimate Fighter show has as much to do with personality as it does fighting because you want the viewers to be interested.

    I would like to see legends coach TUF8. Mark Coleman, Don Frye, and Dan Severn. 2 of those 3 would be cool. A fight between the coaches is not necessry

    It would be a nice change if it was actual coaches instead of fighters.

    TUF 8 is already set, but I'd like to see another TUF 4 concept with guys that have a ton of talent, but are just a bit short of being stars, or bring back some old TUFers and have them do it again for a title shot.

    TUF 8 coaches?

    I like the Mir / Vera idea and the Hendo / Wand

    It wouldn't shock me if they did a....
    Florian / Stevenson
    Florian / Sherk
    GSP / Fitch

    but my true wish list.....
    Tanner / Horn (just because I can't beleive these guys have never fought and they could both use the stability)
    or
    Bring 4 camps together with 2 fighters in 2 weight classes and see whose camp is best. The coaches can fight each other at the end (ala IFL) see guys like Lindland, Cesar, Renzo, etc. one last time.

    i agree the kenflo/sherk combo seems interesting. 2 excellent camps, 2 distinct personalities. BUT id argue the heavy weights could use the added depth for some new TUF winners...
