Cast Revealed for Team Edgar vs Team Penn on FOX Sports 1


Quote:
The cast has been announced for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19, which will have Frankie Edgar and B.J. Penn on opposite sides in coaching roles.

The coaches, who have met twice before in Lightweight championship bouts with Edgar winning both, will tutor a mix of Light Heavyweight and Middleweight up-and-coming talent.

The participants were first revealed by a video distributed by the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, but the clip has since been removed. It's possible that there are several entrances from the participating contestants that could spoil early results.

Nevertheless, here are the contestants for TUF 19:

Team Edgar: Corey Anderson (3-0), Patrick Walsh (4-1), Matt Van Buren (6-2), Todd Monaghan (8-2), Ian Stephens (2-0), Dhiego Lima (9-1), Eddie Gordon (6-1) and Hector Urbina (16-8-1).

Team Penn: Anton Berzin (3-1), Josh Clark (7-2), Daniel Spohn (8-3), Chris Fields (10-5-1), Mike King (5-0), Tim Williams (8-1), Cathal Pendred (13-2-1) and Roger Zapata (4-1).

Early favorites include Pendred, Lima, Van Buren and Gordon.

In other TUF 19 news, Edgar has confirmed that Mark Henry, Ricardo Almeida, Renzo Gracie and Anderson Franca will indeed serve as assistant coaches. On the opposite side, Penn has enlisted Andre Pederneiras, Jason Parillo, John Hackleman and the "God Father Of Ground-And-Pound, UFC Hall of Fame legend Mark Coleman, to help him on the sidelines.

Edgar first defeated Penn in Abu Dhabi at UFC 112, taking the 155-pound championship away from Penn. The rematch was then scheduled for UFC 118 months later, and it was much of the same story, with Edgar retaining his title in similar fashion.

I approve of that avatar pic.
a.) He needs to return to Zombieland.
b.) remake Ghostbusters.
c.) remake Groundhog Day.
d.) special presentation at SNL

Glad to see Coleman on the coaching staff. More of these legends should be in there!

Hell yeah, stoked to see Lima in there. Hopefully this opens the door for his brother to come over after he wins the vacant Bellator WW title.

Have Coleman and hackleman worked together before? If not then Edgar may have the more cohesive team.

Those aren't two guys who you think of as having issues with each other. Mark Coleman has always struck me as a happy-go-lucky meathead and Hackleman is kinda nerd. The issue is going to be BJ Penn and if can check his ego this time around.
