Rafael Alejarra on Mir team at TUF

The physical trainer Rafael Alejarra, which takes care of the trains of athletes such as Wanderlei Silva, Ronaldo Jacaré and Robert Drysdale, revealed that he is already at the next edition of the "The Ultimate Fighter", the UFC reality show, to do the physical training from Frank Mir team, which will face the Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira team. "I am already at the Ultimate Fighter house. The recordings are already at the third week and it will take another four weeks. The Jiu-Jitsu coach of the team is Robert Drysdale. I want to explain that I am preparing Frank Mir team for the house. He called me to help him in the house, for the show", revealed Alejarra, who is a friend of the Brazilian UFC champion and highlighted the professionalism of this work.

"It's nothing personal and I will not train Frank Mir. The athletes from the house has nothing to do with that, Minotauro didn’t call me to help and Frank invited me and it is a big opportunity, quite a sight here. It has a good audience and I will not loose the opportunity to release my work", said the physical trainer, that said thet he would not train Frank Mir if the fight between him and Minotauro get confirmed. "This preparation is only for the program, if he face Rodrigo I wold not train him" assured Alejarra. Check out HERE Alejarra website by physical fitness.

Alejarra's a damn good coach and his training credentials are really impressive. I think this season should be great, though I'll be honest, I don't know why Frank Mir is getting a shot at Nog, though I'm well aware of the division's complete lack of talent.

I'm happy to see it happen. This should be a good season.

I love Mir and all but why didn't he bring in a striking coach? In my opinion it was stupid of him to bring in a jiu-jitsu coach when he already knows jiu-jitsu and his team will probably need striking kind of reminds me of season 3 with Shamrock and not bringing in a jiu-jitsu coach for his team.
