It was hilarious to watch him "coach" that one season of TUF, you could see that he couldnt understand how you dont just stand in front of someone and grab them and then smash them harder then they smash you.... Lol. I actually wonder if he's really smart and just fucking ornery and can't be fucked.

I love listening to Dana White talk about Nelson. It feels like a school principle talking down to a child.

It would've been really interesting to see what Big Country could've accomplished in MMA if he ever took training and being in good shape seriously. I'm sorry, but you can't convince me that you're training and dieting properly when you're morbidly obese. It seems utterly impossible. A lot of HWs carry a few extra pounds, but they're not straight up lard asses. It's amazing how good he's been given his conditioning, but he really sold himself and his career short by never taking it seriously. Everyone talks about how he should fight at LHW, but I'm not so sure that he wouldn't be a MW if he was in truly great shape. He's carrying A LOT of body fat.

Agreed! Have always said/thought that; I think I've even mentioned that a while back here on the forum in an old thread...it's a bit mind blowing.

I've noticed (regular) people who carry a lot of body fat to be surprisingly strong (guess they would be considering the muscles are moving additional body weight) but the cardio/endurance part is usually where they falter. Not sure how Big Country does it.

Most of your really strong guys aren't really defined. They don't have "beach muscles" they have functional strength. That's why those midwest country boys make such damn good wrestlers. They're country strong.

Most defined kid I ever wrestled in HS I tossed around like a ragdoll. I went in totally freaked out cuz he looked like a bodybuilder, it was pretty funny. Literally probably the weakest guy my own size I ever wrestled.

By the same token I got to practice with the Philippine national team and the guy who was like 35 and looked like a bodybuilder.....guy just straight pretzled me.

its been announced that Chael Sonnen and Wanderlei Silva will be the next TUF coaches - in Brazil.

will they be able to make it thru the season without brawling on set?

will Wanderlei try more WWE style antics making himself look stupider and stupider?

will Anderson come in and guest coach for a day?

will Chael make it thru the season without getting murdered by a mob of angry Brazilians??

...... only time will tell sports fans! tune in on spike tv blah blah blah..

I'm afraid to watch it because I get really annoyed at Chael because of all the BS that comes out of his mouth.

Wanderlei is really cool dude. A couple of friends went to his gym to train for a few weeks and they all say that he is one cool dude.

Half way through that 1st sentence, I thought, he'll be killed.

There will be a small army outside the compound I'm sure, or that's what their gonna have to tell him once it starts.
