Tuf 9: Us V Uk.

They stated during the Fight Night that the next season would be WWs and MWs with a US v UK theme.

Whom do you see as potential coaches? Bisping will probably be a sure bet, seems a bit early for him though. The other one I'd have no clue, maybe another MW or something.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA

I think Bisping is still too young to be a coach, really. I thought they usually have the coaches be 1 weight class above the heaviest weight class of the season. Although I can't think of a big named UK LHW.

The coach is always a well known UFC fighter, and if it's a UK team, he's got to be British, so I guess Bisping is the most likely candidate. I guess they could have someone at about the same experience level as Bisping as coach for the US team to make it fair.

Great point. That's exactly what I was thinking when they announced the weight classes. When are they going to use TUF to develope and introduce some new and young fighters to the division that needs the most work? It's completely baffling just like having 2 HWs coach LHW and LW on this current season. It would have been much better to use HW coaches to coach HW fighters. I don't get it.

EDIT: Biowza I'll rep you when it lets me.

Well the UK coach has to be Bisping because he is really their only UK star that I can think of right now. The other coach will probably be somebody from the US they want to match him up with.

Anderson Silva isn't from USA though, so that will have to wait until they've got UK vs Brazil. Besides, he doesn't speak nearly enough English to be a head coach on TUF.
