I loved it when I heard that Matt Hughes was going to be one of the coaches on the New Ulimate fighter series. I believe this guy is going to create some monsters, if the TUF2 guys will get into it like they should.

Well I know that Jorge has worked with Rich Franklin for six months or six years or something like that. And I know that in the first season, Nate Quarry had been training with team quest beforehand too, afterall at UFC 49 He accompanied Couture to his fight with Belfort. Who really knows what these guys are capable of, I mean after the first fight of the show, I was really suprised, It was a really good fight until they started getting tired.

I think Nate is a really godd fighter, great guy too. But this Jorge, I don't know.

Anyway, I think they bring in atleast one guy from the big camps for every season of TUF. To secure the talentpool so to say.

Now i have thought about it Wanderlei has got to be in there especially by beating Rampage twice now. And of course Fedor he is awesome.

Hughes is from IL I think, and please don't use caps.

Hughes was one of the coaches in TUF season 2. He isn't the coach now anymore though.

and what the hell are you talking about?
