Jens Pulver is going to be the coach of one of the teams on TUF 5. This is a sign that TUF 5 will be back to the normal Ultimate Fighter seasons, and it also signals that one of the weight classes on TUF will be Lightweight. I think it's a good decision by the UFC, they need some Lightweight stars and this could get them going. I hope the other class is Heavyweight or Light Heavyweight, as Middleweight and Welterweight will be on TUF 4. The other coach should be Tim Sylvia, or Brandon Vera.

The heavyweights were an issue last time though in fairness, and the eventual winner Rashad dropping down to LHW once he actually got his contract.

But there must be guys who they could get, hopefully them doing a non American or pan European trip are true.

To solve that issue would be to add another clause to their contract. Clause would detail that if they drop a weight class from what they signed up for, fire them for breach of contract and sue. Probably wouldnt get much from them if you sued them, but it would probably make them reconsider there position and decision.

Well alot of guys drop down in weight, hell look at Kenny Florian he started at middle weight now he's down to Lightweight. Everyone does it and i bet there will be more to follow the trend as well.

And what sup with all you guys and Brandon Vera, hes a pretty good fighter but he hasn't even fought any huge names yet, like an AA, Monson or anyone like that. So how do you figure he could coach someone when he hasn't even really done anything but win 2 or 3 UFC fights? lol
