Personally, I took his speech on TUF to heart. I went looking for it online the next day and was bummed that I couldn't find it. Anyways, he hit on a lot of things I had to/still have to work on in my athletic career. People may not like his persona, but what he said that night was spot on.
I got motivated hearing that speech from the show. I can only imagine what it's actually like for the fighters on his team. If nothing else they will be able to take a lot of the things he teaches them, and apply them to areas of their lives outside of MMA.
