Cung Le: UFC not to blame for yoga instructor on TUF China


Generally speaking the competitors on the most recent seasons of haven't been the most experienced mixed martial artists. On the first season of TUF China though, one competitor might be the least experienced in the show's history. Coach Cung Le recently revealed the fighter in a Q&A, but believes the UFC is not to blame:

“I’m not sure how many of you have seen the show, but some yoga instructor got through,” Le said. “That was not the UFC’s doing. I believe that was part of the TV show – he was from the hometown – and somehow that guy snuck under the radar.

“That was a decision I had to make. If you haven’t watched it, I won’t ruin it, but one of the coaches had to go and put a little hurt on him and let him feel what punches with four-ounce gloves feel like it.”

Dhalsim was pretty successful in "Street Fighter," so maybe that's the logic here?

LMAO @ "somehow snuck under the radar."  The UFC thoroughly vets anyone who is going to be on TUF.

Really? I don't use the word personally I guess, but I wasn't even aware it wasn't used anymore. I need to get out more I guess.

He was thrown in there because they needed a pretty boy for the potential female/gay fanbase.
