Sonnen-Wand, Mir-Lesnar, and Urijah Faber reportedly out as TUF 13 coaches


Wanderlei Silva and Chael Sonnen will not be the opposing coaches on season thirteen of The Ultimate Fighter, according to sources Fighters Only has spoken to.

Urijah Faber is also out of the running according to one of sources.

But Fighters Only understands that it is still very possible that one or both coaching spots will be taken by recently arrivals from the WEC.

Mir-Lesnar was mooted but Mir is now reportedly lined up for a fight with Schaub after fans revolted against the prospect of a rubber match so soon.

With the absorbing of the WEC, the UFC now has new fighters and new weight classes to promote. The chance to showcase an exciting new division such as bantamweight will be attractive.

"Dana LOVES Frankie Edgar. I wouldn't be surprised to see it be him."I dont know if this is really the case or not, I cant put my finger on it.....but I get the feeling that Frankie is such a hard sell as a main event PPV that he overly talks about him being soooo great to try and gain some interest from people.I mean they tried to put Aldo for the 145 belt on the same card so there would be an excitiing draw to the card. Do you think they would have put Aldo on the same card as GSP or Shogun if they were defending their titles?

Anyone think after getting exposure on The World of Jenks on MTV and ESPN's Sportscenter, Pettis might have enough mainstream recognition to suit the UFC's fancy; and the UFC would give him the ball as one of the two coaches?

I was hoping the Faber nut-swinging would dissipate after WEC dissolved.

Sonnen - Wand is one of the few combinations that would make me give a shit and watch the show for a change. Have them as coaches and do 145lb fighters, or maybe even 125 to introduce that class to the UFC.
