Smart move by Brock..wasn't a fan but he brought a lot of fans from the WWE. After taking that liver kick from Ubereem...I had a feeling he was done.

When Lesnar returned to the WWE, I never though he'd fight in the UFC again. That said if Lesnar ever felt like he could, I would love to see him fight one last time.

UFC wanted Rampage to coach on TUF against Chael but he turned it down....

Quote:
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson could have been the next coach of "The Ultimate Fighter."

According to both Jackson and UFC president Dana White, the organization offered "Rampage" an opportunity to be a coach opposite Chael Sonnen on TUF 17 before asking Jon Jones. Interestingly enough though, Jackson turned down the opportunity.

"Forget TUF," Jackson told MMAFighting.com on Thursday. "I'm not interested in that."

"I don't want to fight Chael. He's the kind of fighter that I don't want to fight. He's a boring fighter that just wants to hump people."

White confirmed that Sonnen was very interested in coaching against Jackson and eventually fighting him, as well.

Love Rampage but this is probably best for the fighters. He might be the worst coach in TUF history.

Thankfully he turned it down since he did a terrible job against Rashad.

I think a Spring 2013 Rampage would be even worse than that Rampage too.

If Rashad pissed him off, Chael would literally make Rampage go insane along with being a terrible coach.

So Stephan Bonnar is now "officially" retired. Until the UFC decided to give him a fight vs JBJ when Chael gets hurt and everyone says no. Amirite?

Anyways, pretty good career for Bonnar. The Forrest fight has to be one of the biggest, if not THE, biggest fight for the UFC in their history.

Too much love going on right now during the TUF tapings.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...m_campaign=mma



Quote:
Chael's not too bad. I thought it was going to be all trash-talk, but he's actually being pretty decent and pretty classy. So, I think it's going to make for a great show.

I actually don't hate Chael anymore. He's actually turning out to be OK. I'm not sure if he's setting me up to really hate him—but right now, he's being a pretty decent human.


Full video of the two laughing and joking with each other:

Hendo is gonna be one of Chael's assistant coaches on TUF. Are we gonna see Sonnen get hurt and Henderson step in?

I know it's sarcasm, but if Sonnen actually does get injured, I'm sure he'd be replaced by Henderson.

Chael is playing mind games, he'll turn it on leading up to the fight & JBJ will get all butt hurt. Sonnen knows he has NO chance if he doesn't get inside his head.

People gave him a pass for the first one just because he's one of the original TUF guys who helped the sport grow. What about now?

He was never that good of a fighter anyways. Good riddance to the overrated cheater.

You could see this coming a mile away. You don't put on that type of muscle when you're that age and have already been training for years naturally.

Well FWIW, the steroid that Bonnar used was something that prevents water retention, making it easier to cut weight. So for all we know, he could have gotten big naturally and used the steroid to cut weight. Either way, he's retiring and he lost the fight so at this point it really doesn't matter.

Bonner's was for a weight cutting roid, no surprise given his size and the short notice.

I'm also assuming Herman is not employed by the UFC much longer.
