Jon Fitch Throws His Name In To Coach The Ultimate Fighter



Quote:
The “Ultimate Fighter” bug has apparently bitten another UFC star.

Welterweight Jon Fitch spent time on the 12th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” when he was brought in as a guest coach and training partner to help out close friend and American Kickboxing Academy teammate Josh Koscheck.

While Fitch’s time on the show was brief, it gave him a taste of how the show works and what it’s like to work with a team of young, hungry up and comers. The experience was enough in that short time that he asked UFC president Dana White to consider him as a coach for a future season.

“It would be cool, I’d really like to do it. I actually talked to Dana about it, and told him that I was interested if ever the opportunity came around,” Fitch told MMAWeekly Radio about coaching on the show.

Fitch went out to Las Vegas to help the current crop of fighters train and prepare, and when he had to go back to San Jose, Calif., to get back into his own training camp, he knew that he had the desire to go and coach a team of his own some day.

“Just the week that I got to spend with the guys, it’s hard to give your knowledge and give effort and time to some guys and then have to walk away,” Fitch said. “So I really wanted to keep going back, but I had to get ready for Thiago Alves, so I had to get back to AKA and train.”

That was during filming of the series, which took place several months prior to it airing on Spike TV. Fitch is currently back in camp getting ready for his Feb. 5 showdown against Jake Ellenberger at UFC 126, but with one of the best winning percentages in UFC history, the former Purdue wrestler is never too far away from title contention.

Depending on how things shake out in the next several months in the welterweight title picture, with his teammate, Koscheck, facing Georges St-Pierre and then Jake Shields getting the next shot, Fitch may have to wait a while to battle for the belt, but that doesn’t mean he won’t try other avenues like “The Ultimate Fighter.”

I can't think of a compelling match up for opposing coach at WW.

Maybe if he moved to MW he could go against Sonnen.

That would be fun.

The only way this would be a good idea is if Strikeforce folds and they make it Caesar Gracie vs A.K.A.

Melendez vs Gomi
Nate Diaz vs Mike Swick
Nick Diaz vs Jon Fitch
Jake Shields vs Josh Koshceck
TUF championship fight

That would be an amazing PPV card

Interesting. You can tell he wants another crack at GSP, but shields has the next title shot. Leaves him doing nothing but fighting for No1 contender.

He wont fight Kos, so that only leaves Condit, Hughes maybe Kampmann.

Fitch v Hughes(only if he beats BJ) for No1 contender and coaches on tuf???

That would be a sick card, but if we're picking Ultimate Fighter coaches after a Strikeforce fold then it'd just have to be Nick Diaz and Jason Miller wouldn't it? That'd be beyond epic. Don't be scared homie. It'd be like a white version of Rampage-Rashad. It'd be amazing.

We'd likely get Jason Miller vs Anderson Silva (other middleweight champion) for a unification match.

Then we'd get Miller vs Diaz.

Fitch on TUF? well that would probably be the most boring season ever, teaching these kids to sensually hump eachother.....

all kidding aside, id rather not see him on there..... i dunno i just never seem to remember him having much of a personality... sure hes a nice guy, but really... the only interview i ever remember of his is after the GSP fight and that was cuz his face was so busted up. Unmemorable usually doesnt work well for tv.... i know TUF is more about fighting, but its still reality tv aswell.

i may be biased tho cuz i do strongly dislike him.... such a boring fighter...

He actually does, he's quite funny. Look up some of his youtube shit. He's reserved when it comes to trash talking and things of that nature but he's actually a really out going and funny dude.

I'd love to see him on there (BIAS) possibly against Carlos.
