Totally agree although he will probably get one of the wild card births.

He might, Dana and others are always saying how you should fight to impress but forget that if you are knocked out you lose any chance of a wildcard spot.

Wow, okay well...

1. He did coach again, season 11 not an early season.
2. We've seen some pretty impressive classes, Brazil, Season 11, FW/BW's, TUF Live.
3. For Chucks 2nd run he didn't fail 80% of the time, he got 4 out of 7 to the UFC
Kyle Noke - 4-2
Brad Tavares - 4-1
Court Mcgee - 3-2
Rich Attonito - 3-2

I was basing my opinions on the coaches abilities as a coach, rather than how many fighters they got into the UFC.

That's fair, if that's the case I would go with Brock for development, Serra for cornering, and Miller for game planning.

Sonnen's still got half a season to go

This is the first season I think I've enjoyed more for the fighters that are in it and the actual fights (only watched since TUF Heavyweights series) as opposed to the house antics and animosity between the coaches. I was at least expecting some fake arguments between Jones and Sonnen but there's been none of that really. There's barely been much house activity either really.

Sonnen is coming across as a great guy in this, very motivational speaker IMO.

Only just watched the last episode and I'm glad Bubba lost as well, really didn't think Kelvin would win but he had heart and proved me wrong though I still don't think he'll progress much further.

Now I just want to see Tor smash Josh and I'll be happy

tbh u kinda proved my statement. Thx.

None of those guys are having great careers. Tavares is doing okay but arnt his last 3 fights all decisions??? His career isnt impressive to say the least.

Chances are that none of those guys are going to amount to anything more then middle of the road fighters who eventually will be let go by the UFC.

Yeah I think this episode gave us a good idea of whos the favorites to fight for the Tuf finale: Josh Samman, the leader vs Uriah Hall, the talent. Those two are pretty much the stars of the show at this point.
