    Like title says, who are the least coachable fighters in the gym?
    From what ive heard/read/seen:
    1.Ferguson- coaches are scared to challenge him
    2. BJ- entightled and lazy
    3. Ronda- needs to be sorrounded by yes men
    4. Reem- known gym bully and gym hopper
    5. Mike Perry- cuz his coach is his girl

    I don’t think Ronda and Overeem are fair to list. Overeem clearly made adjustments to his game late in his career that must’ve been the result of coaching. And Ronda? You don’t become an Olympian if you’re uncoachable.

    I would guess Conor is pretty hard to coach

    You'd be hard-pressed to find an example of someone who was more influenced by their coach than TJ lol

    -Conman-Doesn't train, and when he does plays touch-butt and surrounds himself with yes-men
    - I've heard from a couple fighters that Reem got a lot more humble with age, and more pleasant to work/train with. I think you can see that in the difference between his old in-cage and interview personality and his last couple years of fighting.
    (Haha, with that many KO losses I hope you're humble!)

    I'm just going with my gut on this one, but I think that a lot of really stupid fighters, like Jeremy Stephens, are probably hard to coach (or at least clearly don't listen when that cage door closes).

    Rampage had a problem being lazy. If it was another world where Juanito Ibarra could be a life long trainer for rampage Jackson. I think we would have saw the best rampage and a much better career. He looked so on point with him.

    I thought I remember hearing Brock surrounded himself with yes men, and they weren't allowed to really hit him in training. Which would explain why he quit every time he got hit hard.
