The point of this is to find the best fighter and so the mental game has to play a part, but if the best fighter loses interest, and ed is the best fighter and he was losing interest, then you have to find a way to ensure that the best fighter performs.
Whether or not we thinks it's right doesn't matter, because Dana needed to find a way to motivate the best fighter in thh middleweight class and if that means having his coach show up than fine. I think having Randy there had just as much effect on Josh Haynes' fight as it did on ed's, probably more, because ed was going to beat Rory's ass anyway.
