Fans, fighters and writers alike have been chiming in across the ‘net about the perceived lack of coaching ability on “Team Rampage” this season of The Ultimate Fighter.
Opposing crew “Team Rashad” have surprisingly had to tend to Jackson’s fighters in the cage following their losses. When speaking to the camera, Evans simply doesn’t approve of letting your boys hang out to dry in defeat and that feeling is likely echoing through homes across the country.
Surely this is not sitting well with the former light heavyweight champ, Jackson. Quinton recently departed from the UFC to take on the role of B.A. Baracus in the upcoming A-Team movie and believe some tricks in the video booth are to blame for casting a negative light. Although editing can influence the way audiences digest footage during a season, the fact remains that Team Rashad stands a towering 5-0 in the competition thus far.
The following is Rampage’s recent blog entry in regards to the coaching on TUF 10.
“The only reason I’m blogging this is that I want everyone to know what’s really up … The show is for entertainment and it could be edited in many different ways, which doesn’t always tell the true story … My team and I had great chemistry and we got along great. Rashad and his team didn’t even like each other … Rashad acts so fake and cocky and he wants to act like he cares more about my fighter than I do and brag about how he’s a better coach than I am. But I tried to explain to him that I’m not a coach and I won’t be coaching after my fighting career, like he might … Rashad thought the show was about him, about how good of a coach he could be and how fake he could be … But I knew what it was all about. The show is called the Ultimate Fighter, not the Ultimate Coach.”
