Its always the token black guy on the foreign, non-american team with controversy and drama surrounding him.

Ditto with Jamie Yager, Alex Caceres, etc.

Maybe, they think they can re-create Kimbo level ratings this way?
From what I remember, "male nurse" wasn't involved in any drama until Kos started to pick on him or whatever...in which case all he did was stand his ground and even get Kos to lose his cool...

However, Kos being black I think reinforces your point which wasn't my intention

Yeah not sure what happened, but it seems like the race card gets played a lot around here these days.

This guy needs to back off.. He is just taking advantage of JDS's poor english.. his job is to assist JDS.. and not make decisions for him "just because hes here for the kids"..

In almost every training session clip of JDS's team shown.. this guy seems to act as if he is the Coach and JDS is the assistance coach.

Nothing to do with race card.

I bet JDS wrestling coach has a long, documented, history of conflict with training staff and fighters. He didnt change from a top tier coach into a controversial troublemaker overnight.

I would guess hes been that way for a long, long, time.

Hes the wrestling coach for team quest -- the same place ed 'shortfuse' herman and other fighters ditched citing a lack of training expertise and or professionalism.

He doesnt seem to be a very good coach, he obviously doesnt work well as others in a team setting, and he doesnt train anyone who is a big name in MMA, on a high level.

Theres nothing to recommend him to the position other than him being a token black guy expected to provide comic relief and or drama to boost ratings based on his past history of being a troublemaker and not being able to play well with others.

JDS and blackhouse train with top tier wrestlers like Mark Munoz on a regular basis. They KNOW how to train for wrestling & they've been in the game long enough to know a shitty wrestling coach when they see one.

If you think thats playing the "race card" then whatever.


Hard work is the only real PED.

I don't think he is there just for ratings, thats silly. Brock Lesnar is the only name they need and the ratings will be good.

There are tons of wrestling coaches with better credentials who are more qualified.

They're digging from the bottom of the barrel?

Chael Sonnen trains at Team Quest, but I don't think he trains with lews polley for wrestling. That might tell you something?

Because Sonnen is a bully and can't pick on Lews.

Sonnen isn't a bully, he's a bully-beater, he beats up bullies.


And lol @ Sonnen not being able to pick on Lews.




I hate that wrestling coach so much. When JDS' team lost their match and they're all sad and Cigano is telling them it happens, it's fighting, and trying to remotivate them. Then that douchebag comes in out of nowhere and is like YOU HEAR THEM CELEBRATING OVER THERE? IF THAT DOESN'T PISS YOU OFF THEN YOU DON'T BELONG HERE!


Wtf. Awkward douchebag.
