    TJ is a far better coach. He actually seems like a great coach, very knowledgable. That said, I still like how Cody is reacting to his guys. He tries not to freak out after they lose, and he always says how he is glad to have them and enjoy their journey so forth. He tries to be encouraging, so at least there's that.

    I'm impressed with TJ, and it's becoming obvious he was unfairly judged as a traitor and a snake. I liked when he was working with Tom late at night in the gym, and came over early on fight day.

    Cody's a horrible coach and a dolt, and I have no idea how he stays so disciplined in his fights. He should be locked up for assault already, and will likely melt down when his team goes 0-3.

    TJ seems much more patient and fair to his fighters so far and they go in comfortable.

    Cody G let Castillo shit on one of his picks in front of the team, not a good move.

    Think I'll wait a few more eps to vote but TJ is winning at the moment. I foresee some make up sex between both coaches with Faber filming and throwing a hand in from time to time by the end of the series though.

    Wow, this is even more one sided that JJ-Gadelha was.

    This is what I gathered as well. TJ wanted to train in Colorado because they were PAYING him to train there, and in another interview I heard him say he made more progress training rout there. He still wanted to train at Alpha Male once that fight camp was over though, but Uriah wasn't having it and took it as a lack of loyalty on TJ's part.

    Basically McGregor mind ninja'd Faber into thinking what he wanted him to think in season 22, and he never recovered.

    It was very telling when Faber denied what TJ was saying about being given an ultimatum and kicked out... but stopping to look at the camera before he said it the first time. That don't look right broham. Suddenly very self conscious about the camera because you're being honest, right?

    To be perfectly honest I think 95% of the roster would come off better than Cody is. Could be higher than that, I'm just leaving a margin of error in there for potentially brain damaged fighters.

    So the guy who can't coach and has no self control comes out looking better?

    It was even more telling when he said he did kick him out of the gym because TJ left the team. He basically said TJ was lying, then admitted everything TJ said was true.

    Yes. If my coach got front hand choked and did nothing I would switch jerseys right there

    Also it's a 1 hour reality show we don't really know who can coach and who can't just from that. That's beside the point but just saying

    Oh wow, my grammar on that last post... But yeah, I missed that he actually admitted it. At some point during the exchange I started tuning it out. It sounded like the bullshit you hear in a middle school lunch room, and I paid it the attention it was due.

    You'd be joining the team where it seems to be more about the coach than the fighters.
