60% of Liddell's fighters over two seasons have had UFC careers. Also Rich really should still be in the UFC, it was bullshit for Joe Silva to cut him because he couldn't make weight on a short notice fight.

Jason Miller got all of his guys in the UFC and the one that didn't stick around is in the Bellator system.

Brock Lesnar took a series of bums(Cope, Harvison, O'Neil) and coached them up to the UFC level.

I think Chael's got a lot of talent and I think Jones is over his head when it comes to coaching.
In general the talent was much better in the earlier TUFs. Alot of them were very decorated in other disciplines. Now a days people with somewhat bad records are making it in the house. I suspect if Liddel coached again that his guys wouldnt have 1/8th of the career that his first team had.
