Can't be too surprised. No offense to Cote or Noke, but neither of them having selling capability. Cote is about as exciting as watching paint dry, Noke is not popular at all, he's a bit unknown unless you really follow mma, you probably don't know either of the coaches. For me, I hate that they don't take the top talent anymore, some of the people that go on this show are an embarrassment like Junie or Julian, those are suppose to be the professional athletes in our sport of MMA, not only are they bad portrayals of the sport, they're simply not good fighters period. Julian is one of those guys I look at and confidently say, I could beat that guy. But these guys get added to the house to help ratings, or draw rating for their characters. Not surprised anymore, they picked coaches who no one knows as a casual fan, and they pick b-level fighters that hopefully turn into a-level talent in the UFC.
