TUF 13 coaches going to be Edgar and Maynard

The upcoming 13th season of "The Ultimate Fighter" debuts March 30 on Spike TV, and a source close to the show today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale is slated for June 4.

The event takes place at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and airs live on Spike TV.

Although no coaches have been named, the date would allow for UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and top contender Gray Maynard, who could be part of UFC 131 in June, to meet in a season-ending fight.

UFC officials will announce the coaches later today during a media call, but they and other industry insiders have been tight-lipped about the names. Edgar and Maynard have emerged as possible candidates, though rumored coaches have included everyone from Dominick Cruz to Urijah Faber to Chael Sonnen to Wanderlei Silva to Brock Lesnar to Frank Mir to Jose Aldo.

If Edgar and Maynard, who recently fought to a draw in the UFC 125 headliner, do end up fighting again at UFC 131, the timing would work out perfectly for "TUF" head-coaching stints and a season-ending fight. The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale takes place June 4, and as MMAjunkie.com first reported Monday, UFC 131 tentatively is slotted for a week later, June 14, at Vancouver's Rogers Arena.

"TUF 13," which begins production this month in Las Vegas, is a welterweights-only season of a reality series that first debuted in 2005.

Regardless of the coaches, UFC 130 (May 28), The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale and UFC 131 means the UFC is expected to host shows on three consecutive Saturdays.

In any manner, stay tuned to MMAjunkie.com at approximately 5:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. PT) for official confirmation of the "TUF 13" coaches.

bad decision .

I'm a little disappointed too.

Hoped that it would've been Wandy/Chael season but after the issues Chael Sonnen had I knew it wasnt gonna happen. But it's not the worst either.

Always supporting:

Frank Mir - BJ Penn - Shogun Rua - Vitor Belfort - Demian Maia - Cole Miller

It will help to hype the rubber match, but then again it delays the fight a bit.
I just hope they start filming as soon as possible.

Its still just a rumour and i hope it stays that way. Edgar/Maynard III should be done asap - Edgar should be medically cleared by end of feb i reckon so the fight should happen in March or April at the very latest - if they wait til June then a lot of potential candidates will miss their shot.

So so so so bad. Will be the dullest TUF ever. Frankie is a reserved and respectful guy and Grey is monotone and dull. Also TUF holding up title fights is just so bad.

The idea of TUF is to be entertaining and coaches should be chosen accordingly.

Chael vs Wandy would have been awesome, constant confrontations and some genius interviews from Chael.

Obviosly given his current situation they couldn't have Chael representing the UFC in such a mainstream media outlet as TUF.

Thumbs up for the suggestion though.

Am I the only one who sees this as a great move? Edgar vs Maynard II ending in a draw generated alot of buzz, that buzz will cause more people to tune into TUF, which in turn will cause more people to turn into their second rematch
Win/win for all included... Though Gray needs a personality ASAP

Still just a rumor. I dont think they would put these dudes as TUF coaches. Neither of them are particularly interesting or charismatic.

I don't watch TUF anymore really, but I can see the reasoning behind this. Reminds me of the Tito/Shamrock, Tito/Lidell seasons.
