HI Guys, I'm new to the forum but not all that new to watching UFC. I really enjoyed reading all of your comments on who you think is the top TUF coach.
I do have to say though, I actually thought Matt Hughes was a good coach, but I really just think it depends on what style of learning you have. Matt Hughes has a very direct and agressive style of leadership that not every fighter was responsive too. I personally respond better to the style of leadership that Matt Hughes has, it makes me work harder and he really makes you earn your bragging rights, he does not allow you to accept anything but 100% ALL the time.
Where Rich Franklin had a more particpative approach to his coaching style that many of the fighters responded to well. Does this make him a better coach than Matt? Only in the sense that more fighters responded to him, but he was not necessarily the 'better' coach in regards to technique, knowledge, training, etc.
I was thinking, Perhaps Tito is favored by most people because he was sort of a mix between Matt Hughes and Rich Franklin. The aggressiveness, knows how to push buttons, accepts nothing less that 100%, yet is sincere, approachable and very talented and allows downtime.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to watch much of TUF 1 so i dont' know much about Randy and Chuck. and Ken...we wont' even go there.
Thanks for listening...
