Oh good god this is horrible. I never, ever thought I'd see the words Patrick Cote and TUF Coach in the same sentence. Fuck, I'd rather see Loiseau at this point in his career, as the Canadian coach than Cote. Mind-boggling.
Not sure why they have Cote in this spot rather than say, Rory MacDonald(post Ellenberger), who is the far superior fighter, as well as a rising star who could use the pub. This is so weird IMO, Cote isn't a UFC caliber fighter anymore, his only real win in the UFC for years has been against Voelker, who you could make the case as not really being UFC caliber either, he got merc'd and won the DQ schmoz over Sakara and now they're going to highlight Cote on a TUF program? I didn't even have him working for the UFC following his next fight, since I figured he'd lose and get cut, this just blows my mind. YEESH.
One major thing to look forward to with this show will be seeing the whack job Lombard interact with the reality TV format and more to the point, how they edit the show.
This is laughable stuff, they even have a contingency in case Lombard can't make weight, gawd this is bloody awful.
