    That's a lot of MMA wisdom but can they make it all work together. Stay tuned.

    In TUF, I don't think the coaches make much difference in the outcomes other than strategy of fight selection. Ir is filmed over such a short timeframe there isn't enough time for the fighters to make drastic improvement in their fight game, so it is mostly based on their skillset entering the house.

    Not a fan of Jason Parilo but everyone else should be fun. Coleman has no knees or hip, he won't be able to demonstrate.

    Jeez, that sounds like one of those "If YOU were a TUF coach, who'd be your team?" threads. That's a lot of experience.

    Wonder who Frankie's bringing.

    hahaha, awesome!

    Kaman is an absolute beast!

    I'm really glad to see Coleman on there. He's a great personality and will make for some fun moments on the show. Also, the guy is terrible with money and has been perpetually broke his whole career; I'm glad BJ hooked him up with a paycheck. His wrestling is elite and he's been in the game since the beginning.

    I disagree, I think the coaching is a huge part of the success the fighters have on the show and ultimately for the UFC. There will always be fighters who appeared on the show that would have attained success even without it, but that's not true for them all.

    Coleman can still demonstrate a lot of things.

    Mainly about the effects of time and gravity on man. [​IMG]
