I think saying Rampage did a shitty job is unfair, I didnt see anything to indicate that Rampage's training was the problem, it would appear Forrest did a better job of if nothing else picking the fighters which really has alot to do with it considering they dont have alot of time to work with them, (some are out in like what a couple days?) I mean wit almost all of Rampages fighters out in the first round none of them really lasted long enough that there performances would reflect Rampages job as a coach.

I would say yes and no. Forrest seemed to focus a great deal more on conditioning than Rampage did. Within the course of 6 weeks, that's probably about the only thing that either coach can really effectively train their guys on.

Their fighters will have the skills they brought, and the coaches will be able to try and work them out of bad habits, but all the coaches can really do is get them in shape in 6 weeks.

Matt Hughes was pretty bad too. I remember one fight where he was just yelling to his fighter "Yeah that's it, just lay there and let him punch you and do nothing, perfect"
Way to give your guy some juice Matt.

If I remember correctly, this was season 6 and Hughes had a huge problem with guys not listening to his advice from the corner. He would tell them to let guys stand up, and they would go to the ground; tell them to go for a takedown, and they would stay standing...

Not defending his coaching, but his cornering was understandable when his fighters weren't listening to a damn thing he was saying. That is something I would say.

Sooo, he set up a gameplan and at the first sign of adversity, they abandoned it??? Sounds like Hughes fault to me

I distinctly remember him telling his fighters to do certain things and them completely ignoring him.
