GSP will bring maximum exposure to everyone involed, great way to build stars and hype for a title fight. Daley or Kos would like the time to prepare anyways, works for everyone, save perhaps GSP.

 I find it strange that Dana picked Daley as a coach. All of the coaches so far on tuf are known as guys who train hard, and have that never quit attitude.  Paul Daley quit MMA in 2008 for no reason then changed his mind and came back to fighting. http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/dailynews.asp?articleid=5780&zoneid=13

Why do we have to side line good fighters to unnecessarily coach a freaking reality show? I'd prefer them to just do the fights and not waste anymore time of out fighter's careers in their prime.

Logic means only getting one maybe two meaningful fights each card now?Sounds like guys like blue have drank the kool-aid.Why not have a stacked card with GSP AND SIlva or Brock or Couture etc?Didn't we just get BJ and Silva defending on the same card? Fuck your so-called logic and start expecting more from a president that supposedly "owes" us. Well, stacking a card that would have inclusded GSP along with the already scheduled fights would have gone a long way to make it up to us.Instead, we wait until FUCKING DECEMBER for GSP again. Enjoy another dull season of TUF and the accompanying kool-aid, smart guys.

I'm sure whoever the coaches are it will be yet another outstanding season filled to the brim with intelligent mature individuals.
