+1 for Teamwork

Big Nog proved to me last night that a positive team environment goes a long way.

Junie's spirits were in the pits. He felt he was on his own. His team and coaches should have been there helping him, but he ruined those relationships early on.

No wonder the Brazilians do so well. It's like the whole team shares the energy and confidence. Very cool to see.

New appreciation for good camps.

I'm glad Nog brought a positive attitude and something memorable for the fighters in a positive way instead of constant bickering like some of the old TUF shows. Like shammy... he was one awful coach haha

While I agree, I don't think the sinking ship called Junie could have been saved by captain Nog either. Mir was pretty good coach overall, less warm and friendly like Nog was, but he did some awesome cornering that was only second to Serra's out of all tuf coaches so far.

No disrespect, but I don't think Mir was a good mentor or coach at all. While I don't think he abandoned Junie as a single fighter, I did feel as though Mir was not as involved with his fighters as a whole like Nog did.
As far as Serra goes, I think he was a better coach than most. Except for the Shonie this, Shonie that, Shonie, Shonie, Shonie. That fight drove me crazy!
