Will TUF 10 Make or Break Rashads Image

watching the interviews about the first day of shooting Tuf 10 it seems to be that its going to be explosive. With Rashad seeming humbled after his loss in his interview. But then Rampage saying that Rashad is too cocky and Needs To be even more humbled in my opinion puts him in the same situation as with Tito Ortiz when he was on TUF. I really didnt like Tito until i saw how much effort he put into his fighters and made him seem more grounded with the advice he gave. So my question is do u think that Rashad will have the same type of effect it did for tito? will it seem that rashads presumed arrogance will come of more as fight hyping? and finally will Rashads Image Come out in the eyes of the public better or worse?

Spoken...this is for you...i think the show will totally make his image....i mean the guy has been super humble after this loss and i have hated him up till now....

I was impressed with his heart , chin and ability to be humble in defeat in the post fight interview.....

As long as he doesnt act like a dick or belittle these fighters he's trainning i think he will help them alot...plus what if he brings greg jackson in as an assistant????

This, every last bit of this post. If he doesn't act like a complete ass, I think people will see the Rashad I saw from the beginning.

I can't wait for this season.. it's going to be the greatest until eventually Lyoto and Rashad have to coach. Hopefully Lyoto will speak enough english by then.

I think people (of course they won't) will finally see that Rashad actually is an intelligent, modest individual. I never understood why people thought he was a dick, I mean I wanted him to lose against Lyoto, but only because Lyoto is a better fighter. Rashad is nothing but humble and sounds dedicated when he talks. He may dance and grab his junk (who doesn't) but when it comes down to it, he backs his shit up and honestly, he's A LOTTTTT more modest than a bunch of guys that come to mind. It seems like a bunch of people have a personal vendetta against Rashad, and normally I would think "okay, if a ton of people have it, he must be doing something wrong", but I truly can't find it. Hope he wrecks Rampage.

rich franklin, anderson silva, rampage jackson, wanderlie silva, shogun, lyoto machida, dan henderson, frank mir, bj penn, gsp, diego sanchez, forrest griffin... i can keep going.

he's cocky and alot of people didn't and still dont like that. and look what happened to him, he got KTFO and its what alot of people wanted to see.

last thing, he's gonna lose to rampage the same way he lost to machida... he's gonna get Knocked the Fuc* out!

someone once asked me when we talk about PrideFC why we never put
"the" in front of it, i asked him, "do you put the word 'the' in front of God?"

Anderson Silva, Wanderlei, Bj Penn, and Forrest Griffin have all done things that is just as/more disrespectful then anything Rashad has done.

And when is he cocky? Can you please give me an example? I'm dying to find out.

I think knocking Liddell the F*** out made Rashad but I do think Id want to be on his TUF team, having been in the house and the fact he trains with some of the hardest workers in the sport will only help him. Only problem is Rampage has done it once and he will learn from the things he did both good and bad which will be a huge advantage for him he already knows what works.

I think it's more of TUF hate, hate that he won he KO'd Liddell, hate that he got the belt, just hate in general. People just really try to find ways to hate him, I mean he does a little jiggle or dancing during a fight, he's showing off, he's being cocky and arrogant, etc. But when someone like Sudo does it, he is hailed.(Not to mention Sudo was A LOT worse, gotta love the guy though, don't know how anyone can.) I think the only thing TUF can do is make it better. Unless something crazy or ridiculous happens on the show.

Like was already mentioned, why is it not okay for Rashady to do shit like that....Randy spanked Tito (someone should make a username out of that!) and does he get hated on? Even Brock Lesnar did shit farrrrr worse than Rashad has ever done and no one seems to remember. I get it, he's chocolate and wonderful, but that is no reason to hate him!

Agreed, I see many of the "chocolate" fighters get lots of flak especially on the interwebs with the exception of Rampage, (but how can you hate Rampage?) but the hard cold truth is, ANYONE can be a great fighter. Men were fighting for as long as they been on Earth, so any race or nationality can fighting in their blood. It's a stupid reason to hate someone.

Boo! fight with Honor!
