Bas Rutten

Why did he quit his job as the coach of the Anacondas? I know it happened quite a while ago, but I never really understood it because he had the best team in the league.

Brought to you by Blexxemen's link just below this thread.

PC: You've traded in your coaching cap and went back to the commentating tables. What made you make the switch and how difficult was it for you?

BR: The switch came because I came to the states to be in the entertainment business and when I was given the opportunity, they told me I could be totally Bas and that I don't have to be worried about what I can and cannot say. Of course I have to watch out for bad words, but I could do everything that I want to do. I knew it would be difficult because I had the Anacondas, but Shawn Tompkins has been with me for a long time. He's been trained to the Bas Rutten system for a long time. He has a high success rate with his fighters. He brought Chris Horodecki and Krzysztof Soszynski to the Anacondas. The guys were already used to Shawn Tompkins and that made it pretty easy for me and everybody. We still do things together. If I have a chance, I will jump in and train the guys.
