Seriously the UFC tries to make TUF revolve around 2 coaches but the coaches are most of the time disappointing in the actual coach aspect (I give credit to Tito). I say TUF 13 should have Wanderlei Silva THE AXE MURDERER as your coach. The only problem is 2 things: His accent hurts his English but I don't know who doesn't love Wanderlei. 2nd who could he feud with? You could do Wandy vs Bisping 2 and have the show surround them but I feel like no one wants to see this again.

There's really no match ups for Wanderlei to coach against at 185 except Anderson Silva and maybe Chael Sonnen. If you do Anderson Silva then I think that Anderson is a big enough of a draw to carry the show. If it's with Sonnen then I think you have a huge feud waiting to happen that will make for great television.

Thoughts? I don't care who Wanderlei coaches against but anyone to disagree with Wanderlei not being a legitimate coach on TUF and wouldn't make for an awesome show is nuts and I would love to hear why.

So who would you put Wanderlei up against and do you think he deserves to be on TUF?

I love Wandy, but him as a couch would mean WAY to much smack talk from him that would leave you wondering what the F did he just say....

His jibber english i think is just to much for 90% of the viewers that would watch lol....

Ed Soares vs Greg Jackson as Coaches on TUF and ether coach can use any members from there camps as and when they choose to aid them.

Man the channel flippers would be confused as hell when they flipped onto spike and saw 10 guys running around in snorkels.

Hasn't filming already started? He would have to be an assistant coach that comes in part way through the season if it has.

Having Wanderlei as a coach would be cool and funny, and I dont think hardcore MMA fans would mind the Wanglish but I'm not sure the UFC would want to air 2 months of a TV show where a good portion of the viewers might struggle to understand him or get frustrated with his english grammar. I would watch every second of it though.

The more I think about Leben and Wanderlei coaching the more I want to see it happen. Leben seems to have really matured as a fighter and a person and as Rogan was commenting on a large part of this has to do with him teaching. He has skills in every respect(wrestling, striking, BJJ) and experience at all levels in the UFC.

Then there is Wanderlei who everyone loves. Worst part of this match up would be trying to understand some of the things Silva says lol.

He does have a thick accent, but TUF has used subtitles before. Plus I like to think that Portuglish makes a lot of people happy in the pants.
