Dana White names Brock Lesnar among potential TUF 13 coaches

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

Season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter is scheduled to begin taping in just a few weeks, and UFC President Dana White admits he's late in picking the men who will lead two teams in competition and later battle it out themselves.

Among the pairs he named as possibilities were MMA legend Wanderlei Silva and recently suspended middleweight Chael Sonnen, who would face NSAC scrutiny in order to get licensed to corner on the show.

Anther possibility? UFC bantamweights Miguel Torres and Urijah Faber.

A surprising duo White mentioned was UFC heavyweights Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar. It seems possible the camera-averse former champion might have little interest in a job that requires six weeks in front of a camera.

"I really don't know what we're going to end up doing," White told MMA Fighting. "I've got a board with a list of things that need doing, and this is one of the big ones ... Here's the one thing I know: I have to make a decision really soon."

Okay, fair enough. I just can't take that frat boy house setup that they just won't diverge from. I wish they would've tried to do something else just for once. Just shoot it as one big elimination mma tournament and similar to the Tapout show or something different like that. Just do something else besides lock the fighters up in the lame-ass Real World house.

I threw up in my throat a little when I read that.And while I consider it unlikely, I wouldn't be surprised if Brock isn't special guest ref. at Wrestlemania (with UFC approval and possible creative control)

There is no way in hell Dana will let brock do Wrestlemania. It's hilarious how people come up with these convoluted ideas about how brock would be convinced to coach TUF. The guy left the WWE because he hated being away from home, he hated the travel. How many times has he said he hates the media and being on camera? Damn some of you are thick headed mother fuckers.

I think the Coaches are allowed to leave regularly. With Brock, money's not really an issue. He's not going to do something he doesn't want to do for the sake of money. He's made plenty of money in his career (as has his wife) and they live very simply.

^LOL, I would rather see McCorkle vs Chael. Brock would crush Sonnen, least this would be entertaining.
