    Has there ever been a fighter that fought a coach from their own season, whether it be their own coach or the opposing team's coach?

    Ryan Bader's coach was Big Nog and Bader did fight his brother Lil Nog. That's kinda like fighting him.

    A fight that should have taken place is Rampage against Darrill "Titties" Schoonover, but unfortunately it never came to pass. It had the kind of buildup and trash talk that the UFC lusts over these days.

    As a GSP fan I consider that a myth and just pretend it never happened.

    the question was "from their own season".. if you are going there, the list is long.
